Dryer makes intermittent squeaking noise when running. Any advise would be helpful
You will want to check the dryer drum support rollers 12001541. Also check to make sure that the idler pulley 6-3037050 is not dragging. Check to make sure that the glides 306508 at the front of the drum are in tact.
Clothing is getting caught in between tub and top of dryer. Its like the tub has dropped down.
Answer Hello Ty. It sounds like the felt seals 33001807 are bad. Also, check the supports on the front of the dryer.
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.
