SOURCE: Dryer drum has come loose, how do I tighten it?

These machines have a metal ball (like a small trailer hitch ball) mounted on the rear of the drum that rides in a plastic saddle mounted on the rear of the machine,
The parts that you need to replace would be the plastic glides mounted in the front of the drum that run on teflon pads glued to the rim around the door. When they get bad you start to notice dammaged clothing.
The drum is allowed to sag down enough that clothing can get into the gap at the bottom and as the drum turns upward the items get pinched when the gap closes at the top.
All these parts can be replaced but be prepared if you do it yourself, this is a tough machine to work on.
Good Luck
Quentin

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire Gallery Stackable that has a screechy dryer

Sounds like it is worn out. Get a parts diagram and take it apart and see what parts are missing or worn out. The belt is probably coming apart and that is the black stuff. There are several plastic wear plates and a bearing/bushing for the drum, plus the belt idler and all these can wear out. The motor could also have a bad bushing in it but more than likely that will require a new motor as they don't usually sell just the bushing or end caps.

SOURCE: FWT445GES1 Washer makes loud banging noises like it's going to explode.

Washer- you need a complete tub and bearring kit. this is a common problem for people who have well water. (also just happens) the rear yoke has become corroded and broken. its a costly repair.

dryer - you would need a new front slider seal. very simple to install.

SOURCE: model FWT449GFS1 Frigidaire Gallery problems: roaring

most likely transmission bearings are worn out (sounds like a jet plane taking off) unfortunately this requires replacing the transmission which is a costly job.

I have a minalta cs pro ep 1085..when I tried to take copy the paper jumed and errore code apeared (c0010) ,, any help will be greatfull


Sir/Mam the Drum Motor is failing to turn the drum it self mite be jammed. Not allowing the motor to turn . Remove the drum cartridge. And see if you can turn the drum with your fingers DO NOT TOUCH The color part of the drum turn by both thumbs on the edge of the drum TURN CLOCKWISE if you turn Counter clockwise you will flip the cleaning blade that is not good. The cleaning blade removes the old toner before the new image is placed on the drum if it looks yellow then get a new one and replace it. IF you think the drum is stuck to the cleaning blade then for about a half inch push the drum counter clockwise the then clockwise. Also might remove he drum to see if its jammed. Also the motor might be bad or the circuit board that replaces it. Hope this works for you

Hope this works for youH

Westinghouse Electric Dryer, Drum doesn't turn on start up, if your spin drum and close door it will start,


Either something is binding the blower wheel up or the motor is bad. The best thing is to take the front of the machine off to access the blower wheel to verify ifanything is indeed binding it.IF not read the next section.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Creda T520VW is very noisy when drum is turning and then it keeps tripping the fusebox. What can be causing this?


this sounds more like two faults,, a motor fault and a bearing fault
if the bearings on the dryer drum have worn out and the drum is draging the sides of the dryer the poor old motor is working its hart out trying to turn the drum this is putting a lot of load on the motor and the motor is pulling a lot more amps to do the work,, this trips the trip in the fusebox good job too or the motor would catch fire! ,,,yes i did say "catch fire!!!" to test the drum bearings,
open the dryer door and see if you can lift the drum up if you can the bearings have worn out,,there should only be a small amount of lift in the drum
as for the motor,,,its had it now? its been cooked!

My Maytag dryer drum is not turning but it was earlier working.


The drum is turned by a large, flexible belt that runs all the way around the drum, and also through an electric motor that spins the drum. If the motor is turning and the drum isn't, the belt is either broken or off the motor pulley. If the motor is not turning, it's either a bad motor, a bad connection, or a bad circuit that is not providing current to the motor when it should. It's a pretty serious problem at that point.

There is one easy fix; Check to see if you have something messed up with the door closing sensor; I had a little plastic tab break off of mine one time, and it was a $2 replacement part and it worked fine for years after that. If the sensor isn't working, it thinks the door is open, and won't let anything happen.

Good luck!

Dryer will not turn. makes a low hum for a few seconds then nothing.


Hello, Unfortunatly your primary winding on the motor is bad. basically when the motor first starts the primary winding gets the drum turning and does the hard work. when this winding fails the motor is not able to do the hard work to get the drum turning. If you took the lid off your dryer and hit start while helping the drum turn by pushing it the drum would start. Some techs on here talk about drilling holes in the motor and spraying oil inside the motor. In 25 years I have never seen this work on a motor this big. Only safe way to repair this problem is install a new motor. if you have any further questions please feel free to comment. Good luck! Mike

Drum not turning


If you are certain that the motor was turning, then the only things that come to mind are that:
  1. The belt is stretched or worn-Replace as there is no adjustment.
  2. The drum is stalled, either because it has seized, or there is something stuck in the drum.
  3. The motor brushes are worn, and will not cope with load of drum, check brushes.
Try running it on fast spin without the belt on , if it spins o/k, then that would indicate the motor is o/k.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thanks.

Dryer Motor won't always start Model FSE747GES


Too much drag on the Drum. Try lubricating the rollers that the drum turns on. Check the belt tensioner pully...lubricate that as necessary. If Drum still turns very hard after this then take belt off of motor and try turning drum. If drum turns easily then replace motor.
