After replacing valve coils it now makes thumping noise reassembled it twice


Thumping noise is usually something with the drum system. You didn't list make and model so I'll give a few suggestions. If its Whirlpool--- the drum rides on 2 rubber rollers at the back edge that wear and need replaces if the rubber gets too bad. The front edge of the drum has a 2 piece plastic bearing strip that snaps into square holes in the front drum edge. Those 2 strips sometimes break or chip and need replaced.

If its a Frigidaire dryer----the back drum bearing is a small round metal ball that looks like a small trailer hitch ball. If fits inside a slotted plastic retainer block. The plastic block wears and the ball sometimes gets grooved and needs replaced. It comes as a complete kit (ball and socket) for about $20. The front of the drum has a similar system plastic strip as the Whirlpool I described above. Hope this helps.

Model fde336resi loose drum


There are 2 areas to check for this dryer drum. The back center bearing looks like a small trailer hitch ball which is attached to the drum. It fits into a plastic socket on the back wall of the dryer. To remove the drum, you need to take the dryer front off and disconnect the belt that goes around the drum. Then use the belt as a handle and yank up the back of the drum to lift the ball of the drum out of the socket. The plastic socket is what usually wears but you can get a complete kit including the ball and socket for about $20. While the drum is out, look at the inside edge of the drum opening. Should be a white plastic bearing strip completely around the opening.If cracked or missing replace those also. Should be 2 strips. Thats all that supports the drum in the front.

My Maytag Depenable Care Gas Dryer has become very squeaky when the barrell spins. i took off the front panel and sprayed WD-40 on the backsides with the Plastic wheels and it went away for about 10...


Probably best to grease the wheels (called drum support rollers) rather than use WD-40 because that strips away the lubrication. It will also pay to check the drum support glides under the front of the drum. Worst case you may have to replace the support rollers.

The stainless steel drum has broken away inside my creda excel 1200


This means that the drum support has collapsed due to corrosion.
It entails a complete strip down of washer, and replacing the drum shaft,and possibly new drum bearings and shaft seal also.
It is quite an involved repair, and not to be undertaken lightly.
If the washer is more than 5 years old, it would be more eonomical to replace it with a new washer.

My GE GCVH6260FWW front load washer made a load snap while spinning. Repair man couldn't find anything. So we ran a load through and at the end of the wash cycle it started thumping and vibrating on high...


If the drum is also loose, it is dead. The plastic your are finding comes from a part inside. It will cost more (or close) to fix than to replace and you risk breaking other critical parts if you DYI.

My ge dryer is hanging clothes around the drum and leaving them black. mostly wash cloths at a corner. it has a squeak like a cricket.


Hello darrellandru, the problem is most likely going to be the drum slides. On the top drum bering, there are four plastic strips, the drum sits on these strips and those strips are what the drum rides on. You may also have problems with the drum gasgket (the felt that is on the bottom plastic drum bering).

Noise


drum needs to be taken out and guides need to be checked ,i presume that this plastic is a broken drum guide.check all drum rollers for wear at this point.It shouldnt be that difficult just remember which way the belt comes off the idler pulley,dryer drum rotates simply with a belt surounding the drum thus the guides,drum rollers and idler are checked to find where the grease is coming from,hope this helps,

Hotpoint aquarius wm64 loud banging noise when spinning with full load no noise when spinning empty i have found small pieces of plastic inside drum


Several possibilities here.
First and fore most is the drum support or main drum bearigs are failing., more likely to be drum support
The pieces of plastic you refer to are from inside the outer drum, because what is happening is the inner drum is catching the outer drum, and breaking the plastic inside.
You are going to have to strip it down to determine the exact cause, what I expect you will find is that the alloy 3 legged drom support has corroded away,a nd the drum has come loose.

Hope this helps you solve your problem

When I print in colour there is a white streak from top to bottom about 5 cm from the left hand side


- remove all cartridges
- clean all leaked powder on the cartrtidges and inside the 4 cartridge compartiments with a vacuum cleaner
(don't touch the powdered roll on the cartridge!)

- deep inside the printer you will see a glass-strip. You have to clean this strip carefully. Because of powder, that has leaked from the cartridges, the laser-beam is dimmed. This causes the white streak you mentioned!
