If your dryer is making noise, will not start or tumble or is not getting the laundry dry, you could replace a single part — maybe a belt or the roller wheels — only to find that it did not solve the problem. Why not replace several parts at once, saving time and money? That’s the benefit of a Dryer Repair or Dryer Maintenance Kit.
The Advantage of Using a Dryer Repair Kit
Dryer repair maintenance kits typically come with several parts that tend to wear out and need replacement at the same time like dryer belts, roller wheels, pulley wheels and arms.
The advantage of buying a kit is that all these parts for your appliance’s model are included. It saves time in terms of individually buying all these parts and often there is a cost savings involved too.

Drum Bearing Repair Kits
The dryer bearing can be a front or rear bearing and it supports the drum as the turns. Over time and from use, the bearing can wear out and fail leading to noise. If the part is not replaced eventually the drum will fail to turn at all.
If you have a front bearing, kit WE49X20697 comes with replacement drum glides, felt seal and belt, in addition to the bearing part. Again, the advantage of buying a kit is replacing the other parts that can also be worn, like the drum glides and felt seal, when making your bearing repair.
