Question about Frigidaire Dryers
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!
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!
