The dryer on my combination washer dryer makes a loud rumble. Do the bearings need to be replaced? Is the repair easy to do myself.
Answer Malcolm, The WE25X10001 rear drum bearing usually makes a higher pitched or squealing noise, unless it's totally worn out and damaged. A loud rumbling noise could be the result of a worn out idler pulley WE01X10071 or damaged, rounded out blower wheel WE16X28 . It is a bit awkward to service a dryer on any stacked laundry product. but it is relatively easy and you should be able to perform the repairs yourself.
The drum it self won't spin and once you push the switch you can hear the sound at the motor and then will stop and you have to wait 2minutes able you to start again but it won't go through...I have no idea either the shaft or the motor is bad....
Answer Hello Bong. Turn the drum by hand and make sure it is not locked up. If not, open the door and tape the door switch closed. Then press the start button and turn by hand and see if it starts to turn. If so, the motor is bad and will need to be replaced.
Do you have a video to replace rear bearing on this model?
Answer Hello Ruben. Sorry, we do not have a video yet of the rear bearing replacement, but are working daily at adding new videos.
Where does the bearing (BB looking thing) go in the reassembly of the rear bearing kit?
Answer Hello Willima. It goes to the back side of the plastic ball cup and is held with the flat spring on the back of the dryer to the white cup assembly.
