Drum squeeking when it rotates (even by hand). I ordered the dryer repair kit (AP3109602). Is there anything else that I would need to order / replace? What is meant by "Thin Twins"? I believe it is 27" wide.
ANSWER Hi J.R. The thin twin is just a name for the 27" Washer / Dryer (twin) Model. They match in the smaller size. The kit you ordered is fine. When you have the inner drum removed hand rotate each roller and see if the roller shafts part # W10359272 are squeaking or if the idler assy. part # W10547292 needs replaced. It is usual that the roller shaft closest to the heater assy. will dry out and be noisy. The blower wheel is unique in this model that instead of it mounted vertically, it is under the center of the drum and is encased in a horizontal casing driven by a separate motor part # 8544775. Sometimes the blower wheel will have something stuck inside it and has made the blower wheel needing replaced part # 8544737. Thank You.
