Kenmore dryer drum

Hello, I have a kenmore 6281100 dryer. I washed a heavy load of towels and know it sounds like the drum may have come loose. How can I get to the drum? I took the top off and the back off but I think the belts may be on the bottom? Please help me.

Thanks Fixya,

After reading many of the posted messages eventhough I didn't see my model, I decided that since it's not working, what harm can I do? So I took the front off as described in someone else solution and it worked for me. It wasn't the drum, it was a piece of plastic that broke loose from somewhere :) Guess it didn't need it cause it works just fine.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

Kenmore 80 Series Mod:110.23832100 top load that with heavy clothes (towells robes) won't drain and leaves excessive water after spin cycle. Everything appears to function otherwise, no odd noises. No...

When you are putting the heavy clothes (towels robes) the sleeves of the towels will come out easily and get stuck in between the drain out valve so it will not sent the water out properly please avoid heavy clothes(towels robes) try to give a normal load

Our Kenmore front load washer 41741042000 was getting noisier and noisier doing the spin cycle. Then I heard a loud sound- almost like a bump or snap- while the machine was in cycle. I stopped it and now...

The struts usually only break if the loads are too heavy or unbalanced. So try doing slightly lighter loads in future. Try weighing you dry laundry just so that you can see how much the machine will really take. You may be surprised. You might also find a loose spring or two as well. So if they are disconnected just connect them back up. Also with wet washing, especially towels and blankets, they tend to clump together in the drum and force the drum off balance and at high speeds this puts extreme stress on the unit and hence maybe why you have a broken strut.

Wet towels & blankets stacked on working dryer

This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.

Kenmore Dryer Drum is very loose and noisy.

It sounds like one of the rollers has a bad bearing. You will need to take the front off the dryer, unhook the belt, and remove the drum to check the rollers.
