Dryer hums when we push start button. Does not start.
For model number GTDP490ED0WS
Hello Larry and thank you for writing.
If it's the motor buzzing/humming when the start button is pushed then it likely has a bad motor PS11699355. Open the door and manually reach in and rotate the drum in the counterclockwise direction for a couple of complete revolutions and then shut the door and see if the dryer will start. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

It was pretty easy. After already taking apart the dryer to install a new belt I knew exactly my plan of action. I removed the two screws that hold the top panel of the dryer to the front panel. I then removed the top panel and removed the screws that hold the front to each side panel. I than pulled the front away from the cabinet and drum. I put the new slides in place and installed a new felt strip. I put it back together and that was that. Very easy.
I removed the two screws at the front above the drum opening (with the dryer door open). The top panel then lifts off. I removed the screw at each side that holds the front panel to the side panels, tilted the front panel forward, which disengages the front of the drum from the front drum glide bearing. I then lifted the front panel slightly, unhooking the bottom of the panel from the dryer base, and swung the front panel aside. I removed the existing top drum bearing guide, which was disintegrated, and snapped in the new bearing guide, with the nylon slide strips installed in the bearing guide. Next pulled out the old felt strip, and pressed the new one in place. I then put the bottom of the front panel back into the bottom of the dryer front, and while lifting the drum to asure it fit over the bearing guide, pushed the front panel back to a vertical position to mate with the side panels. I then replaced the side panel screws, replaced the top, and replaced the front top panel screws.
Basically, I followed the same steps a prior person posted. 1.Removed the two screws inside the door, on the top part of the opening. 2.Lifted up and removed the top. 3.Removed two screws holding the front panel in place. 4.Held up the drum while removing the front panel. I carefully turned the panel so I could get at the drum bearing without pulling the wires connecting it to the front panel. The wires are not very long, so I had to be careful not to pull on them. 5.Carefully pried off the old drum bearing, using just my hands. It was fairly tight, and popped out just as I started to worry if I was putting too much pressure on it. 6.Checked to see how the old felt was installed, then I pulled out the old felt. 7.Inserted the new felt, being careful to insert one end into a slot the same way the original was installed. 8.Inserted the new slides into the new drum bearing. The gray slides went in at the eleven and one o'clock positions, the white slides went in at ten and two o'clock. 9.Removed a surplus plastic piece from the new drum bearing (where the light comes through). 10.Inserted the new drum bearing, putting the bottom tabs in first, then pivoting it into place. I squeezed it into place to make sure it was tight. 11.Lifted up the drum and put the front panel back on. 12.Screwed the front panel back on, using the two screws. 13.Carefully put the top back on. 14.Screwed in the two screws inside the front door to fasten down the top. That was it! I started up the dryer and it worked fine. No more squeaking. About the only thing odd about the repair is why PartSelect sells each slide separately (i.e., I had to order 2 white slides and 2 gray slides). I can't imagine replacing just one, so why not package them in pairs, or maybe even all four in one package. At any rate, the repair was easy, and a lot cheaper than having someone come out to fix it.
