Question about Dryers
I had a repair man look at my dryer who said the drum needed to be replaced. I thought it would only be the plastic ring that was attached to the drum that came off. He said that the gap would be too big even if that was replaced and I don't think that it would be cost efficient to do that given the cost of labour and drum I would look at buying a new dryer. Can you let me know if there is anything else that should have been looked at? I had some problems with this dryer in the first year with clothes that had strings attached getting caught which was fixed with putting felt in between the drum. The dryer now is only 5 years old.
The bearings under the drum may have failed, making the drum drop, so the gap is bigger. Replacing drum or bearings is a lot of work, cheaper to replace the dryer. Or you could make a plastic ring yourself that is thicker to fill the gap....

Very likely the front support bearing is worn through and cracked there are also three drum slides that are positioned on the bearing which very likely worn to nothing and will need to be replaced as well. For model # NVLR333ET0WB replacement part numbers are:
FRONT BEARING: WE3X77
BEARING SLIDES: WE3X87
Good Luck to you.

>>A repair man replaced the plastic ring but the gap is still there, ruining several items per load. Is it repairable or a fatal defect?<<
The repairman should check the drum rollers, the guides, and the baffles to be sure the dryer drum is rolling true (round). Also, the replaced ring should be re-checked to be sure it's installed correctly.

yeah, i think there called "drum glides" www.partselect.com type in your model number and you if they have that dryer in the system, then breakdown of the dryer will show, multiple diagrams. And look for the glides that are supposed to go there...hopefully this helps
