dryer advances in air dry/ fluff but wont advance in auto dry. dryer heats ok but i have to stop dryer when i think clothes are dry. whats the fix?
Answer Gary, Your first check needs to be at the exhaust vent pipe and vent hood. Make sure there are no restrictions or clogs. Also check and clean any lint in the outlet housing, under the lint filter. If the hi limit switch opens while drying, the timer will not advance, because the regulating thermostat doesn't cycle at the proper temperature, this is usually due to a clogged vent.
does the cork piece go under the plastice piece ? on the glides at the front of the drum?
Answer Jimmy, The cork "cushion" is installed under the "plastic" glide. Insert the tabs into the slot in the bottom of the bulkhead, then the rivet is inserted from the bottom side of the support through the opening in the glide, then in the hole in the support and "popped" into place.
I have a DG882 Dryer that is over 25 years old. I replaced the rear drum rollers and the front glide kit as part of a belt replacement over a year ago. Since then, the drum has gotten harder to turn and I have burned up 2 additional belts. The idler pulley spins freely and the machine doesn't make any extra sounds. Would you recommend replacing both the front and real felt to free up the drum?
Answer Hello Dave,
Since the front and rear seals put up little to no opposition to the drums rotation, I recommend checking the drum rollers and the idler pulley again. The use of softener sheets combined with even a slight exhaust duct restriction causes a deposit of animal fat to make the rollers shafts "sticky". This is usually the cause of the drum roller and idler pulley failures. You should also lubricate the glides with either baby powder or corn starch. These are both very good dry lubricants and will not stain any thing if it gets into the wash.
On startup there is a loud intermittent metallic screeching sound. After 3 or 4 minutes it disappears. No problem with the drum turning or heating.
This sounds like it may be bad rollers 12001541 or roller shaft 6-3129480 on the unit. You will want to pull the unit apart and check for resistance in the rollers when spun by hand.
Dryer is making a load screeching sound under a load ?
Answer Hello James,
It sounds like the rollers, shaft or bearings of unit have failed and would need to be replaced.
