Frididaire dryer glides
 
I had a loud squeel in the dryer and found out i had a bad rear bearing assembly. I replaced it and since i had the dryer open i also replaced the top drum glides. After i finished and turned the dryer on it sounded like a rubbing sound. Is that Normal? If not what could be causing it? The squeek is gone though. The dryer model # is fde336res1 Thanks

More like a sciffing or light scratching sound is normal....since we cannot hear your dryer we cannot really say what is happening or not happening.

This might help as well....

Sil-Glyde Lubricant The super film strength, long lasting, clear lubricating compound ( great for dryer rear drum bearings and some dryer front glides ).
