FIXED GFDS170EH0WW GE Dryer cleaning

Thanks for all of your help.

I get the top bearing assembly installed. Squeaked turned squeal fixed!

There was a small plastic defect that I trimmed with a utility knife and it popped into place with some gentle persuasion and some small submarine sailor words that I learned years ago! Additionally, there was no need to remove the lower housing or use a heat source.

Attached are a few pics of the original the destroyed assembly that I removed. As I said before, three of the four contact glides were destroyed along with the felt pieces and the drum was beginning to eat away the plastic assembly.

Yes, good photos, I do see how bad the old one was.

Thanks for the update!
