    Same type of problem, whatever "ring" is around the drum, when you peel back the rubber seal. It's almost feels like hardened cardboard, comes off in pieces into the drum. It appears at one time it was glued to the drum, is this insulation or what? The washer does not display any codes and will work, except for this gunk getting into the drum.

Theres arubber "boot" connecting the tub to the outer wall of the unit. if your seeing "bone colored" plastic rubbing off and onto the soft rubber boot assy, that sounds like the outer tub itself somehow wearing down, , that snot an easy repace ment at all, you would need to replace the entire outer fornt tub.

Kenmore Elite H3 washer's loud in spin cycle & smells burnt.Debris & plastic in well inside washer.Pushed aside rubber ring & saw lg. gap btwn. metal drum & surrounding plastic.Parts needing replace?

It sounds like the drum has broken from the rear mount. This will chew up the outer shell. This is a very labor extensive job. The parts are expensive also. You will probably need a new outer shell and inner drum.

Burnt smell bits of plastic found inside

A WM1814CW does not have a built-in water heater, so I think your
load may have gotten trapped between the spinning tub and plastic
front tub cover..Roll back the gray gasket to expose and check the
plastic ring for signs of 'friction' burn..As long as the splinters are
trimmed away and doesn't leak water you should be OK..Watch your
loads..Don't Overload!

Clothes getting caught in Kenmore dryer

The bearings under the drum may have failed, making the drum drop, so the gap is bigger. Replacing drum or bearings is a lot of work, cheaper to replace the dryer. Or you could make a plastic ring yourself that is thicker to fill the gap....

My Porter Cable FN250A only shoots nails sporadically. When I lift up the nose piece, it appears that the "hammer" is not fully retracting.

Piston not retracting is caused by several issues. Bent or broken driver, worn piston oring or loose or broken check seal. Remove head and examine driver for bent or broken, adjust as needed. Check that piston oring fits snug, piston should not drop down cylinder under its own weight. Pull cylinder from body and check that black band (check seal) is in place around holes in cylinder. Good luck

The drum got loose because the one of the top drum springs got unhooked. The spring holder on the plastic drum cover is broken. It was noticed in time and turned off. So it seems that nothing else is...

will the plastic ring in the second ring move to the other ring . the danger is if you put the spring in the second ring the drum may not be line up straight when you look from the top (the motor may be further back) causing the motor and back to rub on the back plate when loaded might be better to drill new hole ?

this is a problem with these machiones. its drum rides on a ball and socket setup. with a plastic ring it rides on to cause the resistance when spinning. also centerd with big springs. its a job to replace . i would get about 200.00 to due.

if you use machine a lot then after another few years same thing again. poor design i think.

good luck.
