New #W10177428 Support Rollers! What type of lube if any should be used on the shaft?
Answer Hello Todd,
The roller bushings are impregnated with a dry lubricant so as they wear, they will actually lubricate themselves. If they are lubricated, they have to be lubricated with either baby powder or corn starch. Ths is because a wet lubricant, such as oil or grease, will cause lint to stick to them. This lint gets pulled into the bushing of the roller and will actually cause the roller to fail prematurely.
How many rollers dryer have? Are they all the same part #'s from front to back?
Answer Deb, your model uses four rollers W10177428. Two in the front and two in the rear. Thanks!
My wife received a part. Part#ap4046756. Also made by whirlpool, and is a support roller. Will this fit our dryer?
Answer Hello Jay. No, based on the model number you provided, you will need to order W10177428 for the correct roller for this model number. Hope this helps.
Will this item work with the samsung dv448agp/xaa ?
Answer Hi Danny. No it will not work with your model #. The correct roller part # is DC97-16782A . The shafts are part # [DC61-01228A]. Thank You.
