It Was the Correct Part!

Excellent! The part was correct. Installation was easy, although I should have realized that I needed to start from the middle and work toward both ends.

Easy repair

The parts arrived in a few days, and they were the exact parts needed. Install was straightforward and done in about an hour, and the dryer drum turns smoothly and quietly again.

So far so good

Dryer was squeaking and replaced front dryer bearing and bought a kit with a new belt, rollers and idler arm. It stopped the squeak and was easy to install. It took about an hour to install the parts. Bought for 29 inch electric Kenmore dryer.

dryer drum front bearing

Part description shows 2 rings but comes as a single ring. Repair delayed while waiting for 2nd ring to be ordered and delivered.
