Does my model require adhesive for both front and rear seals?
Answer Hello Tony. Yes, both front and real felt seals will need to be glued onto the drum.
The rear felt seal came out of the back of the drum. How does this get re-installed? The video shows it is to be glued however, the seal looked different? Also is there a front felt strip that should be changed if there to much play, movement up and down, in the drum?
Answer Hello Tony,
Your model actually has metal tabs that have to be carefully bent down on the seal to hold it in place. Be sure to note how the ends overlap on the old one before removing it. The new seal has to be overlapped the same way to prevent the rotation of the drum from catching the seal and jerking it out. If the rear one has come out, overlap it in the same direction the front one is.
It is taking three hours for clothes to dry. Is that the the door seal or drum seal? Thanks
Answer Hello Michelle. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
