QAre there any "ball" bearings with this?2 Answers
This part has worn through on my tuble dryer - question is should there originally have been some ball bearing between the shaft and this part? I can see the sfaft of the drum does have a thinner bit where balls may have sat? Thanks

Can I just add that the shaft part that looks like it has had ball bearings in, actually looks like that because it has worn a groove in it because it has gone right through the bearing part itself into the casing. So you will need a new shaft also.
no, it just fits in, my husband is very handy, when your dryer squeaks again, turn the bearing the other way round and you get twice as much use out of it, he fits it in 10 mins, might take you a little longer
QCan I use the round bearing instead of the square variety and housing?1 Answer
I have a CTD85 tumble dryer and the bearings warn away. I have a diagram that suggests there are two parts that replace this. The original square bearing that fits in the square bearing bracket and circular one that looks like it will also fit if I remove the square bearing bracket that's riveted in. Is that ok, does this fit, does it come with the necessary screws and if so is it better than the square one? I assume its easier to fit as you dont need a rivet gun.

two types of bearing , if you have a square one then that's what's required to replace.
