The front slides are worn rather badly. Will this cause the dryer to shake, vibrate, and run rough? The metal and felt parts look ok but the slide its self is worn almost to the breaking point
Answer Hello Bill,
The plastic slide is the important part of the slide assembly. If it is worn as you have described, it should be replaced before you have metal to metal wear take place on the drum assembly WE25X60. This would cause the drum to require replacement also.
The dryer blower seems sluggish. I pulled everything apart and cleaned out inside vent. The air pressure seemed good. Seemed a little sluggish when a put back together. Would new glides help it run better for better air flow? Thanks.
Answer Hi. Yes the slide kit part # WE25X60 will help the tumbler glide much easier. Is the belt part # WE12X10014 routed properly around the tensioner part # WE12X81 or slipping? Proper4 air flow tells me that the blower wheel part # WE16X16 and the motor part # WE17X10010 are not dragging. If at the back wall your Rear Drum Bearing Kit felt part # WE25M40 is worn out then it will effect the same as the front glides. Thank You.
