I have a GE Gas drier Model DCVH680GJ1WW that is squeaking badly. From reading the part descriptions, it seems like it is likely the bearing slides, but it could be the idler pulley or the rear bearing. I took the dryer apart about a year go to replace the gas valve coils, which required taking the drum out. It's possible that I damaged something or didn't route the belt quite right when reassembling it. It's a tight fit to get the belt reinstalled over the idler pulley on this model.

The dryer works fine, apart from being very squeaky, though lately it seems that it's struggling to start tumbling heavier loads.

Question I have - is there a way to check the bearing slides for wear before ordering replacements, or is it just fair to assume that a fairly heavily used 12 year old dryer is due for new slides? Would it be best to just replace the 4 slides, the rear drum bearing kit, the idler pulley and probably the belt all at the same time? Do these parts tend to wear at about the same rate?
