My Repair & Advice
Our dryer had been making a noise for several weeks, but seemed to be getting worse. One day, as I started a load, it seemed like the noise had changed and was more of a grinding noise coming from the front of the drum. I thought possibly something had come out of someones pocket and had gotten lodged between the drum and the front bulkhead. When I took it apart, I found shreds of something along the bottom of the bulkhead. One side was completely gone and the other side mostly gone. I couldn't really identify what it was so, I went online and found your site which was very helpful. Not only could I quickly identify the parts I needed but you had a good tutorial video with helpful instructions on how to accomplish the repair. Your shipping of the parts was very quick and with the info from the video, the repair went quickly as well. Thanks for your good service.
