Default Scraping noise in BACK of drum
Model Number: DCVH640GJ1WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

This started with a squeaking noise on a 7-year old GE dryer. So I purchased a new idler pulley and the 4 glides (2 green 2 teflon) for the front bearing and decided since I was going to have the whole thing apart anyways, I'd order the rear bearing assembly with the other parts and replace it as well. I disassembled and reassembled the unit and my squeak was gone- woohoo- but now I have a damn scraping noise in the back of the drum. What was odd is it only happens for about 1/8 of the rotation. Upon further review, I could watch the drum move front to back to front to back to... about 1/8-1/4 inch as it rotated (it scraped each time it went to the BACK of the machine) so I took another step and since the front plastic drum support bearing had worn from the glides being bad, I ordered and replaced that as well as the felt strip on the bottom. I still have the same problem even though the front to back to front to.. movement has been cut in about half. That said, I can put light pressure on the back of the drum while it's rotating, pushing it towards the front, and stop the noise completely. I'm at a loss on how I could have introduced a new problem by adding new parts. Thoughts?

sounds like you have replaced everything involved in the tubs rotation. but you may want to go back in and take a look and make sure the back bearing is sitting in the cup as it should and installed correctly. also make sure there are no wires or anything that is scraping along the back of the drum as it turns and check the felt seal that is at the back of the tub and make sure its not torn or worn and rubbing against the metal. I had a front loader that had a clip that had came undone and was rubbing the drum when it turns so i'd check it out could be something simple.
