CRACK IN DRUM

MAYTAG NEPTUNE FRONT LOADING GAS DRYER

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Mar 09, 2009

    LG Tromm DLG2524W Gas Dryer has a broken drum. I know that the LG is referred to as Life's Good, but what idiot thought to make a PLASTIC inner dryer drum? The model I have is not 'cracked' it is broken perpendiculare to the seam near one of the tumbling fins. I have experience replacing parts in large appliances but I cannot find a replacement part. I would prefer a METAL one...no more plastic. Any help you can give me in getting a part DIRECTLY would be appreciated.

Unless this is less than a year old your dont have much chance of a free repair. drums dont normally crack but it can happen around a seam. did it make alot of noise and you let it go too long until now the drum is worn out and thats where the crack is at?
if you do have a newer unit then i would call maytag and let them know you have a failed drum. they might give you an authorization for part replacement, but probably not labor from an authorized servicer.
the labor might cost about 100-120 bucks, but that is still cheaper then the price of a new drum, maybe 150-175 bucks.

Maytag neptune mdg9700bww dont stop drying by it self


could be dirty electrodes, find the two shiny metal strips in the dryer drum maybe in the front, so you will stick your head in the drum and look back at the lint filter to see them. Clean these with window cleaner and try again.

Hi, If you have a gas dryer2_bing.gif.

Our drier is making a clunking noise, and the barrel has developed a small crack at the front.


your door seal, front drum bushing needs to be replaced it is a felt type soft unit that is installed directly at the front of the drum just behind the front cover

I have a neptune dryer. It is making a rhythmic


I normally only comment on Electrical Dryers, but you problem sounds like something that is common to all dryers.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, You will probably have to remove the top of the machine first, then remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Maytag neptune gas dryer front loader 9 years old has begun to squeak what is the most likely cause?


Either one of the rollers or the idler pulley is causing the squeak. Most common to go bad in a maytag dryer is the roller on the right, it sits just above the heating element. You need to take the drum out and spin each of the rollers and the idler pulley to determine which one is the problem, and replace it. good luck. Shane

How to remove a back panel of maytag neptune dryer?


You have a choice for which side front door should be on this model. There are 4 screws on front door. Take all 4 screws and pull down the front panel. You will see two metal parts each side which holds top panel. Remove two screws and metal parts. Now you can push up the top panel.

Changing the drum rollers on a Maytag MDE4000AYW Neptune Dryer..


The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)
