No! Remove the screw holding the vane and slide it towards you. It will then come out.

How to remove Frigidaire water vane?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove the water vane on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# FAFW3801LW. I see that there is possibly a penny inside the vane that you can hear an feel as the drum rotates. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your particular appliance, and should be able to take the vane off and remove the penny with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Gltf530dso frigidaire washer
This is the part. You have to remove all the panels, The drum counter weights and finally the drum. Then you have to remove the inner drum from the plastic outer drum. Once removed you can get to the screws that hold the paddles in place. Then put it all back together. It may be easier to call a repair man in your area.

How to replace drum vane

I believe the vane needs to move forward to remove from tub, needs a lot of pressure to get it out. sometimes if you tap it with a hammer it will release. new one slides in pretty easy.

Need directions to remove broken drum vane in a Frigidaire Gallery Front loader washer (GLTF2940FS1).

Open the top of the machine (look behind the top for several screws to remove) and slide it back to release from the cabinet. This should give you access to the screws that hold the vane in place. Hope this helps!

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle

There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

One of the vanes inside my gas dryer is loose and makes a loud banging sound when the dryer runs. How can I tighten it?

depending on style dryer,you need to access drum.usually top will pop up and hinge back.rotate the drum by hand counter clockwise till your loose vane is on top,you should see screws or maybe a missing one .add flat washers to secure better.If the plastic threads are broken/stripped replace vane. Hope this helps ,Please rate my solution. :)

The computer is usually clogged with dust and other debris. See if the following instructions help.

compaq nc6220 disassembly instructions Compaq Manual

Goto page 107 and follow the instructions to page 108.
Goto page 118 and follow the instructions to page 121.
Goto page 126 and see below:

Be sure to have a duster can with a extender tube on hand now.

On Page 126 You will remove the fan. This and the next page are the purpose
of doing this work. Follow the fan removal instructions. Check that the fan
turns freely. Take the duster and the fan and carry it outside if it is very
dusty and clogged up. Now blow the dust and accumulated debris from the fan.
Set the fan aside.

On Page 127 You will only examine the heat sink, do NOT remove any screws here!!!
The heatsink is a copper or black colored assembly with heatpipes that curve to
the right into the cooling vanes. Look into the cooling vanes that are located
in the area where the fan was mounted. If there is blockage take you duster and
the extender tube. Insert the tube into the duster and try to hold the can
upright at all times. Now spray the gas into the cooling vanes with the tube
facing the side of the computer. This will be dusty. You may want to do it
outside if careful. Otherwise, wear a dust filter mask.

To re-assemble follow the instructions in reverse order.

If there was a blockage you will see a immediate improvement.
I hope that this helps.

Removing top from Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care Model GEQ8858KQ0 Dryer

Here is the answer to my own question and for anyone else who may have a similar noise problem with coins , metal objects, etc getting under the vanes or fins in the dryer drum. DISCONNECT OR UNPLUG DRYER-Remove 4 screws from the back edge of the control panel on the back of the dryer. Then lift up on the backside of the cover that also has the control unit attached to it. Slide the top cover towards the front of the dryer and then lift up on front and lay the entire cover and control panel towards the back of the dryer. A wall works great to hold this out of your way. The control panel remains on the cover and the drum will stay intact. Rotate the drum to locate which fin or vane the object is located. Move this vane to top and then remove three screws that is holding the vane. These are course threaded screws that screw into the plastic vanes. a nu6t driver was required. After removing the vane I found a quarter, and a few lint balls, There are only three vanes in the drum, so take about 10 more minutes and remove all three vanes to clean out the lint.To reinstall cover slide the cover back onto the two clips(one on each side) push towards back, checking to make sure front is held down by the clips, then replace the 4 screws on backside of dryer. If the lady of the house is around, it would now be a good time to clean out from behind and under the dryer to get up the rest of the dust, lint, and whatever remains or was lost.

I just had the same problem and fixed it. Hold down the blue "go" and red "job cancel" buttons at the same time for a few seconds. The printer churns into action and the green status light goes on. I was able then to print.
