GE Dryer - squeaks and eats clothes
 
Our dryer often squeaks and sometimes catches clothes between the drum and the front. I'm sure I can figure out how to take it apart and put it back together, I'd like to get some idea what parts I need to get beforehand so I am not going back and forth to try to get parts in the middle of the dryer being taken apart. It's a GE dryer model dcvh515ef

Just to close the loop on this in case it turns up in anyone's search, our particular model seems to have 1 of 2 top bearings and ours is the one that most places locally don't carry. It has 4 glides, and those were all pretty much gone, and the top bearing was worn through because we put up with this for a long time. We got a replacement off ebay, and after installing that and all 4 glides, it's quiet and doesn't eat clothes.
