Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

Money (change) caught inside interior drum plastic pieces.

There is change (money) caught inside plastic pieces of the interior drum. I was wondering if anyone knows how I can un-snap these pieces (3 of them) and then I can get the change out of them to stop the noise it makes as the drum rotates.
Dryer is a Sears Kenmore Elite Model # 110-70982990.

Thanks!

Remove the top lid.
Rotate the drum until a vane is at the 12 o'clock position.
Remove the screws from the drum holding the vane in place.

The microwave oven is not worth sinking the money into, the interior paint has probably burnt off, door and switches will probably need replacement, the turntable plate, and additional parts "turntable motor" and other major parts are suspect, replacing the microwave oven in my view is the safest alternative.

Most frigidaire dryers have front felt seals with nylon slides on top that the front of the drum rides on. Without M# can't be sure if yours is like this.

When the drum gros around, it sounds as if a coin


Hi The noise you are hearing is coming from the baffles inside the drum. These are attatched to the drum with screws from the outside of the drum. Something as gotten inside these baffles and causing the moise.
Remove the front ot top panel (Depending on what model) and take the screws out so the baffle releases.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kyocera 1810 drum replacement


First, what kind of technical background do you have? Also when replacing the drum you should replace the drum blade. Most of the drum/blade kits do not come with padding powder anymore so you will need the padding powder also -- if you do not use the padding powder you will get drum blade jitter and trash the brand new drum!!!!

TO replace the drum you will need to remove the toner cart., 1-2 covers, the dev. unit (developer) and then the drum unit. You will then have to take the drum unit apart to remove the old drum and blade. *****NOTE***** DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM SURFACE OR THE MYLAR (RUBBER PART) OF THE BLADE WITH YOUR SKIN!!!!!! The oil from your skin will damage the drum and could damage the blade, again -- then they would be trashed.

I would spend the money to have a trainer tech. come out and replace/ rebuild your photo conductive unit for you. It would be money well spent.

Toner Error


It's possible that the toner has not been reset due to the fact that you changed the drum at the same time. There is a cover on the left hand side of the toner covering some gears. Remove this (one screw) and wind the toner reset gear (white one by memory) back and refit the cover and put the toner back in the machine. It may take you a few to get it in the right spot but that will reset your toner count and get rid of the error.

Frigidaire crown series dryer


The back of the drum has a hub (a flat steel piece with a shaft and ball) which allows the drum to turn. That ball rides in a plastic "cradle". Unfortunately on the crown series...if the ball and cradle are not greased regularly, the plastic wears. This allows the drum to "sag". The front end of the drum is lower than the back. You can confirm this by running your finger around the front of the drum. You'll notice that the top of the drum is almost flush with the body of the dryer and the bottom of the drum is 3/4 of an inch lower that the the body. This allows clothes to slip into the gap at the bottom and then they are spen to the top pof the drum were the lodge between the body and the top of the drum. The turning drum burns the clothing. Replace the plastic piece that the hub rides in.
