Question about Frigidaire Dryers

Need to know how to reattach the dryer drum

I have a Frigidaire Gallery heavy duty dryer model 417.49012890. The coils in back were getting fire red when in use. I vacuumed out the entire dryer which included removing the screws from the inside. I believe the drum fell. I have reattached the outer 3 screws but cannot get the inside 3 screws to line up at all! Help!

    Happy New Year to you too!



    This is my first post to pretty much anything and I'm glad you can understand "dumb girl" :)



    Yes, I'm talking about the exact part that attaches into the center to support the drum. The screws are messing up my life! I've found some manuals and diagrams about taking this thing apart and I'm working on getting the drum out. I agree, it's not going to line up if I don't!



    Thanks for your quick response!

The part that attaches to the drum (you are placing the screws in) comes out. It is a single bearing with a plate welded to it that places in a slot to allow the drum to spin.

I removed the screws for then Amex reason and replaced the, without removing the drum...took 4hours! I did it alone and used a soccer cleat as a wedge to hold the drum up in the back. Then I used a flashlight and placed three long nails into the holes to help the, lined up. Then I shoved my upper body into the opened dryer to push against the back while I got those tiny screws back into place. Never again!

    They don't spell check these prior to posting. It was supposed to say I removed the screws for the exact same reason and replaced them without removing the drum...took four hours! The nails helped line up the holes.

Simple. Your solenoids are overheating because of age. Most American dryers use the same 2 coils:

it's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.
