I have only had my Whirlpool Duet Sport dryer a little over a year. I have been noticing that it takes 2 or 3 cycles for the clothes to dry. I looked inside and found that they entire inside is cracking and there are three large holes! I called Best Buy where I bought it but they said the warranty was only for 1 year and they could not help me unless I wanted to pay for a service call. Can the drum be replaced or do I need an entirely new dryer?

Re: Inside of the dryer is cracking- huge holes!
The drum can be replaced but dont know if you want to pay for one they are probably expensive and 2nd if it is taking 2 to 3 times to dry clothes you have a vent problem which has caused the cracking of the drum probably cause so much heat build up in the machine your vent is stopped up and it isnt keeping the heat and moisture in the dryer which is a fire hazard please call a technician and please rate this

I pulled apart the back of my dryer to access the heating element. I noticed I have a break in one of the coils. So, that means I need to buy a new one. The thing I noticed is that only of of the terminals at the bottom of the heating element has a plug on it. There are no additional wires inside the dryer that could have come off so I am a little confused as to if i new coil will work. I watched a video online and it clear shows both terminals being connected. Anyone have any advice?
Hello there If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine,
the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. OR
If the control has turned the water valves on, and after 8 minutes, the
flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has
not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off, and
the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check for crack or holes in the washer tub and pressure switch hose.
2. Replace components if necessary.
before calling any repair man,
take a flashlight and carefully inspect tthe inner tub
on a few service calls with this particular complaint
ive found small nails, taks, penny nails, screws, what have you that fell into one of the holes and got stuck
barring that , i would get your bearrings checked yes
at four years you should still be inside your part warrenty if it needs to be replaced
The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.
Just had the same problem 1 month ago. My Whirlpool Duet front load made that terrible noise. 2 of the 3 spider arms were cracked. I hade a new hole tub with the spider arm and the shaft , because it is 10 years limited waranty . But if it is not under waranty it costs about 270$ for that tub you can buy it from many appliance parts web sites on the net. Good luck, huge job to all remove that thing
