SOURCE: How to I get to the drum

Access to the outside of the drum requires the removal of the front then the top panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top panel is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the screw holes appear at the top of the drum and screw the baffles back into position.

Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

How do I replace rear drum bearing

On most dryers you can use a screw driver with a piece of cloth so you will not scratch it and pry up the top of the dryer. It will swing up and away or come off. Then feel for screws on the bottom of the dryer. You will need a offset screw driver to undo these or lay dryer on the side. There are also screws on the back. Pull the back away and off. Remove the belt remembering how it was threaded to the motor. Then lift up on the drum and pull out. If it is wore it will come right out. Unbolt the holder on the back of the dryer and the back of the drum. Replace and reassemble.

Dryer works but squeeks the back is solid no inspection panel how do i get acess to grease bearing?

Greetings, The first step is to UNPLUG dryer:
The front has to come off to service your dryer.. The door comes off by removing screws from hinge..The door pulls out and you then grab the front panel and pull it towards you. This gets you into the drive area..Its most likely the drum rollers or belt pulley thats making noise..There is no drum bearing on the dryer.

The drum support assembly has to be removed to replace rollers or at the ;least lube them. I suggest going thru this labor to just replace parts then lube them. There are four screws that hold this front on..Two screws on each corner. Remove paying attention to how the tub rides on the front to make it easier on install...The belt can come off and the whole tub can be removed.

The belt goes back a certain way, so be careful to take note of how it fits back on drum and around belt pulley..At this time you can replace your rollers in back( the front has two rollers as well) and replace your belt pulley.

I have a canon imagerunner 1630 had a paper jam and had to pull drum to get it out, now can not get it back in correctly, display reads check toner/drum crg

Before reinstalling the drum make sure the Developer unit is correctly attached to the drum unit. The two clips ( Blue slides on top ) keep the two items together. Canon had two screws that were to added make sure the two stay together when removing the drum. Anyway make sure the drum is squarely installed with you insuring the rear is pushed all the way down. The sensor is located below drum near the entrance to the fuser. Good Luck

PYE2300AYW Dryer how do you remove the drum?

Once you loosen the screws from the spindle or axle, you should be able to pull(gently) the drum out. Be careful not to damage the rubber wheels. My question is why do you need to pull the drum anyway? It has nothing mechanical or electrical to it. Are you wanting to put a belt on?

Further dissassembly is required. You'll want to do this anyway to inspect the heating elements. Some of what I say my not apply to your model (because you did not list a model number). 1. Disconnect power to dryer. 2. open door and remove screws going up into the dryer top. (two or four) Usually these are phillips screws, but you may find tri-wing phillips or T-15 torx. 3. swing top back, allowing access to remove the two screws holding the front panel to the side panels. (near the top) 5/16 hex or twin drive (phillips / #2 robertson square drive) 4. tilt front panel forward, lift off and swing to the side. You don't have to remove the door switch wires if you don't want to. 5. Pull drum forward a few inches. (it's a tight fit to get it past the dryer sides) 6. release dryer drive belt. 7. Finish removing the drum.
8. inspect coil heating elements. If one or both have a break in them, you can replace just the coils, you don't have to get the entire big metal part that holds them. 8. Clean and reassemble. (check the teflon rear drum sleeve bearing and the front drum support slides. now's the easiest time to replace them if needed.) 9. put the drum back in, then the belt back on by reaching your thin arms way back to the belt tensioning pulley. The grooved side of the belt touches the drum and goes down directly to the motor drive pulley on the left, then around the tensioning pulley. 10. Put front back on dryer. 11. turn drum by hand several revolutions to make sure the belt is not twisted or comes off. 11. Finish reassemble, connect power and test. You're done !
