Dryer makes a rattling sound as the drum rotates. My gues is the rollers need replaced. What is the best way to get to and replace roller wheels for an electric dryer?
Answer Bill, Most if not all electric dryers will require removing the front of the dryer, the drum, and the front bulkhead to access the internal components of the dryer. If you can get us a model number and an e mail address, we'll be more than happy to supply any information you need to service your dryer.
20 yr old electric dryer makes a rhythmic thumping noise.
Answer Derek, Besides checking and/or replacing the drum rollers (there are two 2 ) 12001541 You will also want to check and make sure theres nothing stuck in or to the drum seals, check the drum and front drum glides for excessive wear.allowing the seam in the drum to make a noise on the drum glides.
did i order the wrong drum support rollers the rear of the drum is scraping metal on metal.
Answer Hello John,
You will want to check to make sure that the rear seal is seated properly and that it sits between rear bulkhead and tumbler.
Where on the dryer do you find the dryer roller. I've got mine open but don't see it.
Answer Hello Donna,
The drum rollers are directly under the drum, supporting it and the drum turns on it. If you had listed a model number, we could have gone into much better detail.
There is a clicking sound coming from back when running.
Answer Hello Bill,
The clicking sound would come from either the worn felt 314820 or bad rollers 12001541.
