Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer guide wheel was noisy and I opened the dryer up and found the wheel and stud badly scored. Fixed that and put machine back together and now the motor is very noisy and the machine shuts off (overheats motor?) after a couple of minutes. The drum spins freely and the motor still is noisy after disconnecting drive belt. Maytag mde8426aaw.

    Hi, thank you for your reply, the blower is OK, I have since removed the motor and found the shaft is out of alignment at the pulley end ie it is not centered and the rubber on one side is compressed. Can the bearing be replaced and will that solve the problem?

You need to check the blower fan. the motor has a "D" shaped shaft. over time the blower wears, the motor will spin but the blower does not. the air flow stops and the drier over heats. replace the blower and it should be fine.

How do you put a capacator in to a ED56 Fisher & Paykel Dryer


I assume you have found that your capacitor has blown or open circuited? If you take the back off the machine, you will see the capacitor fitted near the motor. It will have a clamp around it or may be "stud" mount. The end of the Capacitor has a stud that goes through the panel and a nut is on the other side.

Replace right front wheel stud


If it is just one stud,it's best to leave it be,I have a 85 Nissan 4x4 and one stud is stripped and I have a repair manual and with it being a 4x4,there is a lot of parts to be remove to get to the stud and it may effect my 4x4ing if something doesn't go back just right.I found a repair guide for yours but it doesn't go into detail.It's best to have a repair manual for this so you will know how everything goes back.

Right wheel fell off how do I put it back together need a schematic


if your wheel fell off there is no shematic that i know of however check to see if the studs are stripped if so pull the wheel ( POP-OFF THE BEARING CAP WITH A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER) unscrew thew wheel nut and pull the wheel (being careful not to drop the bearings on the ground ) then with an old nut or board (2 by 4) or something similar so you don't flare the stud so that it wont go through the hole. drive studs out and replace (fairly cheap). when you put the new studs in make sure that the teeth on the back of the hub line up with the teeth on the studs before you drive them in.if the whole fell off make sure that the threads on the spline (shaft) are not damaged. if so repair the threads and get new bearings . ( bearings only go in one way) and nut and cotter pin. (if you don't know that the race is any good take the hub to the auto parts store and ask the attendant at the counter) when reassembling do not over tighten the wheel nut and BE SURE TO PUT THE COTTER PIN IN AND BEND 1 PRONG BACK.

How do u fix a rear stud on a 1999 Nissan Maxima


You will need to remove the Rear Wheel, Brake Caliper, and Rotor to replace the Stud. Once those are removed, take a Hammer and hit the Wheel Stud from the front to drive the Stud out through the back of the Wheel Hub. Once the Stud is out, take the new Stud and insert it in the Hub from the back. You will need to get a Open Ended Nut with the proper thread size as the Stud and thread it on the Stud, and tighten the Nut till the Stud comes all the way through the hole and the end of the Stud is flush with the back of the Hub. Remove the Nut and you can now put everything back together.

Broken rear wheel stud on a 2005 ford focus zx4 se


  1. Step 1 Buy a new stud. Make sure you purchase the right size. If you're not sure what size to get, wait until you remove the stud and take it with you to the store.
  2. Step 2 Check the area of the spare tire in the trunk for the jack and the jack tools since you'll need to raise the car to replace the wheel stud on your Focus. Be sure to block the tire diagonal to the jack.
  3. Step 3 Use the jack to raise the Focus. Remove the wheel Take off the caliper and either hang it by a mechanics wire or lay it up so it doesn't dangle by the brake line. Remove the rotor. If you're working on back wheels, you have to remove the emergency brake clip first. You could have drum brakes in the rear. If they're drum brakes, remove the drum.
  4. Step 4 Hunt for an opening behind the hub that allows you to remove the stud. Line the stud up with the hole. You may have to take off the hub and put it in a vise if you can't drive it out the back.
  5. Step 5 Hit the stud with a mallet and drive it out the back of the hub. Push another stud into the opening. This is tough work, but you only need to push it far enough to thread on a wheel bolt.
  6. Step 6 Put on a wheel bolt and begin to tighten it. As you do, the stud starts to pull through. Add more bolts as necessary until you seat the stud. Check in the back of the hub. When the head is flush with the stud, you seated it.
  7. Step 7 Remove the extra bolts and reassemble the parts that you took off to replace the wheel stud on the Ford Focus. Put the wheel back on the vehicle and tighten down the wheel nuts.

Dryer makes noise when turning like bearings going or belt squeek


Hi,
check the following -
It's noisy
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel

Rollers
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. 


Idler pulley
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. 


Glides
Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. 


Rear drum bearing
Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.


Blower wheel
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

good luck.....

Noisy, wobbly Asko dryer


This could be the front drum support wheels. They are made of rubber and I just replace one that had broken up, causing the machine not to spin at all. (I replaced both while I had the machine apart as I'm sure the other one is at the end of its life too).

To get at it, I had to take the top and the back off of the machine (removing all screws) and then unhook the belt so I could pull the drum out enough to see the wheels. The wheels are bolted to the front plastic with a nut situated inside of it, so you will have to loosen that to hold the nut in place.

You'll need some torx bits of various sizes to do this job and reassembly takes some jiggling to line everything up. Took me about 2 hours all together.

BTW - if it is the belt , it is virtually the same procedure, but if your drum is rotating at all, I doubt it is the belt.

Depending on what brand a model. This sounds as though the guide roller or guide roller shaft are bad and are in need of replacement. It could also be the tub glides are bad. If you will give me the brand and model number I can probably tell how to check this and repair.

Whirlpool stacked washer dryer LTE 5243DQ6


Open dryer door, and reach up to the top of drum and push on it very gently. If it moves more than 1/4 inch or more, the dryer guides needs to be replaced. Sadly the guides are for front and rear so that means the drum has to be removed and the guides in the rear has to be changed first.

It will involve some time so be very careful! Another thing is to check for the dryer idler arm pully. if this pully is squealing/worn out, it will also need to be replaced at the same time you replace the guides.

My suggestion is to call your contractor and make them come out to see if they damaged it. Your local appliance repair store can also sometimes help.
