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.

You need to replace the bell, also check those roller underneath of the drum are freely turn. It is quite hard to take off the front door of LG dryer, if you not a handy person, call for service. If you want to try let me know, I will guide you to open it.

Dryer drys drum turns , but it makes this banging sound like there are heavy towels in it or off balance .lg dle2512w electric dryer


THERE ARE TWO ROLLERS ON THE FRONT OF THE DRYER THAT KEEP THE DRUM IN PLACE, IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE ONE OF THE ROLLERS IS GOING BAD OR HAS A FLAT SPOT IF THE BANG SOUND IS CONSTANT AND STEADY THIS IS THE PROBLEM. EASY FIX YOU CAN ORDER THE ROLLERS ONLINE

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.

Only turns with light load


If this is not turning with a heavy load it can be one of or a few different things. The motor may be going bad and cant handle the heavy load or the drum belt may be slipping or the dryer drum wheels where the dryer rides on may be worn out.

If its the wheels the machine will be making a sort of a grinding sound when it runs and the dryer drum will be loose and wobbly inside the machine. The drum wheels and belt are cheapest, probably less than 10 bucks for both.
You will need to remove the front of the machine and remove the drum to get to the wheels and belt. It shouldnt take more than 1/2 hour or so to do this job.

The motor is another thing. 150.00 for the part, hours of labor and electrical connections. Clearly not worth it unless you have access to a cheap parts supplier. Check ebay for appliance parts suppliers. They usually buy up manufacturers surplus parts and sell them for 1/2 of what they originally sold for.

Loud Thump each time the Drum Rotates


You have a problem with your dryer drum.  The seam weld has cracked and the drum needs to be replaced.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
