Generally, manufacturers will rate the unit in terms of pounds of wash.  That goes for washers and dryers.  Most retailers can tell you what those ratings are.

Kenmore dryer 86984810


pi r squared * depth to calculate this mathematically. Get a tape measure and measure the distance of the center of the drum to the edge, multiply that by itself. Then multipky that by 3.14. then measure from the back of the drum to the front edge and multiply by that. For example the dryer is 24 inches deep and has a 12 inch radius. 12 times 12 is 144 times 3.14 this is 452.16 times 24 equals 10851.84 cubic inches. divide that by 1728 to get cubic feet. You can do this in feet instead so it is easier. http://www.ehow.com/how_5622710_measure-dryer.html

Is there something else i can use to replace the felt seal without buying a whole new drum on a maytag neptune model MDE9700AYW


Hello,
On older maytag dryer's the felt seal wasa seperate part and not part of the drum..the problem is i do not know if the drum on the newer and older dryers is the same diameter they look similar in size but if it isn't exactly right may leave a gap where the clothes will get caught in...however the part number for that seperate felt seal is 314820

I have a frigidaire gallery series dryer, model number GLEQ2152ES1. It is approximately 2.5-3 years old. It is a front loader. During the normal cycle (the only one I ever really use), things always get...


Party *****. Sorry, I couldn't resist. It sounds as though your machine has been moved and something has become loose inside or is not properly aligned causing the drum to separate from the seal. If you open the door and feel with your fingers just inside and behind the door area around the complete circumference of the drum you will feel a rubber of fiber gasket or seal. If that seal has become damaged or pulled away from the frame that is what is causing your problem. Does the dryer make any unusual noises that you may have recently noticed? If so it could be that the support bearings that the drum ride on are damaged and may need to be replaced. If that is the case there is no need to buy a new dryer. If you feel confident in doing the repair yourself it's a little complicated but can be done with simple tools. If not then you may want to consult your local yellow pages for a reputable appliance repair person to complete the repair for you. Please be careful as there are a lot of fly by nights out there who will cause you more harm than good.

Have a bosch tumble dryer need to know how to fit the belt that holds the drum


Remove the top cover by removing the screws at the back of the machine and sliding the cover off forwards. Now you need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum and under the bearing retainer, which may entail removing the back cover as well. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor or the tensioner.

Diagram for setting up belt on drum tenion


Replacing the Belt
  • Step 1 Put the dryer door-side down on the floor. This allows easier access to the back.
  • Step 2 Locate the center pivot suspending the dryer drum. If held by a clamp, removed any nuts or screws retaining the pivot axle.
  • Step 3 Move the pivot out of the bracket and slide the new belt inside the bracket.
  • Step 4 Replace the drum pivot in the bracket and reassemble the bracket.
    Looping the Belt
  • Step 1 Flip the dryer up so it is once again sitting upright.
  • Step 2 Locate the groove or wear mark the previous belt left in in the circumference of the drum.
  • Step 3 Wrap the belt around the drum in this groove or wear mark, with available slack at the bottom of the drum.
  • Step 4 Wrap the belt around the drive wheel located on the drive motor in the lower corner of the dryer.
  • Step 5 Insure the belt is snug but not biting the drive wheel. This indicates the proper size belt is installed.
    Reassembly
  • Step 1 Reattach any clips or wires to the back cover.
  • Step 2 Reattach the back cover using the six-sided sheet metal screws removed earlier.
  • Step 3 Reattach the top cover. Close tightly so clips secure the cover.
  • Step 4 Plug in the dryer and turn it on to test the belt repair.
  • Step 5 Reattach the dryer vent conduit

    Works but doesnt spin. Where is the belt located. I think that might be the problem.


    To access your drive belt, you need to take the front cover off. Unplug the dryer first.
    There should be 2 screws on the front cover in the lower front area. Remove the screws and tip the bottom of the front panel forward until the top clips are frree of the top panel. Be careful there is a door safety switch wired. You can disconnect the wire and set the front panel aside.
    Look under the drum in the dryer and you'll be able to tell if the belt is broken or loose.
    IF you need to replace it, you'll need to take the 4 screws that hold the front drum support/duct assembly loose from the dryer case. Once these are removed you can pull out the whole gray assembly and slide the drum out.
    The new belt can be purchased online at repairclinic.com if you want.
    To put back in, you can put the belt around the drum and slide it back in. It should have a grooved side and a flat side on the belt. Put the flat side toward the drum. It routes around the motor pulley and a tensioner pulley. It may take a bit to figure out the routing, but the key is to put the belt into the indentation ring on the drum to allow you to get it around the pulley and tensioner... if you leave the drum sticking out of the machine about 8 inches, you can reach thru the drum and hook the belt in place, then slide the drum in and pull the belt out of the indentation and onto the larger circumference of the drum. You may have to twist the belt to get the flat side next to the drum.
    You can then put it all back together...
    Good luck... be patient and you can do it.

    I need to know if a new Asko Dryer will stack with my old washer


    The exterior size hasn't changed and the plug to run the washer is the same so I don't see a problem. A good retailer can check this for you , but I haven't seen any difference in the stacking kits.
