How to Install Felt on a GE DCVH515EFWW Front Dryer Bearing

The GE DCVH515EFWW is a super-capacity automatic electric dryer designed for residential or industrial use. The front bearing assembly keeps the drum correctly positioned against the door. If the felt seal is damaged or worn out, the dryer may produce a high-pitched sound when the drum is rotating. Remove the defective felt seal and install a new one in its place to keep your GE front load dryer working properly.
