Broken abs plastic vent


Heating the plastic with a hair dryer may make it piable enough to straighten the deformed area but be vary careful not to overheat the area because you may make the deformation worse. If it is ABS plastic you should be able to use abs cement for plumbing piping to glue any pieces back together. Best of luck on your project.

Hi there, I have a washer/dryer which does not dry properly any more. After a full drying cycle the clothes will be hot but still quite damp. After another full cycle they will be slightly less damp but...


Hello,

The washing machine Dryer is very similar to many other dryer models, with the main difference being the two front panels on the dryer cabinet.


Taking the dryer apart is a job that can be done in about 30 minutes. Occasionally, the interior parts of the dryer, such as the motor or belt, may require maintenance or replacement.


You can take the dryer apart yourself, allowing access to the interior without spending the time or money to call a professional to do the work.

Instructions

  • Screwdriver
  • Putty knife

  1. Unplug the electrical cord of the Kenmore 90 Series dryer from the electrical outlet before attempting to take the dryer apart.
  2. Locate the lower front panel of the dryer and slide a screwdriver along both ends between the panel and the dryer cabinet, prying away from the cabinet with the screwdriver to detach the panel from the plastic clips holding it in place.
  3. Slide a putty knife between the top lid and the dryer cabinet on both sides, lifting up to detach the top from the plastic clips and flip the top back so it rests against the wall on the rear hinges.
  4. Locate the screws on the bottom of the upper front panel, unfastening them with a screwdriver and lifting the panel off the metal clips at the top of the cabinet.
  5. Tilt the panel away from the dryer and unplug the door switch connector on the back of the front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way.
Thanks and thanks for using fixya.

How hot is the Vent temp of my new Duet?


It's not the temperature of the air that is the problem. The air is seldom over 160 Deg F. If you have a vent fire the piping needs to last long enough without melting to starve the fire of oxygen in the hopes of extinguishing. Rigid aluminum piping is best suited for this, Rigid flexible is next. The tin foil and white plastic offer little resistance to melting if a fire should begin. The melting would allow the fire to replenish oxygen and support the burning process. The main caution here is to keep your dryer and vent clean...at least annually.

If the duct inside your wall is rigid metal all the way from the dryer to the house exit you need to do nothing to it . Replace the vent between the dryer and the wall with rigid metal 4" piping or hard flexible aluminum piping. If the duct inside your wall is either of the least effective types you need a new run of vent for the dryer to avoid a fire.

You can't use white plastic or flimsy flexible aluminum that feels like aluminum foil when you touch it.

I want to know how to remove the lint trap (not just the screen but the entire assembly) from a Maytag Performa PYET344AZW front loading electric dryer. The lint screen will not even properly slide back...


Besides drying clothes, dryers also remove lint. This fine, fuzzy material can cause trouble because it blocks dryer lint traps, clogs vents, and fills blowers. Lint can also gather around and in the tracks of the drum rollers, or in and under the pulleys and the drive belt. The result is poor clothes drying or -- sometimes -- no drying. To avoid lint problems, clean out the dryer's lint trap system every time you use the dryer.
To clean the lint screen, remove it from the unit. The screen may be located near or under the door sill, or in the top of the dryer near the control panel. It can usually be removed by pulling it up and out of its housing. Remove the accumulated lint to clear the screen; then replace the screen.
The exhaust vent also collects lint. Vent maintenance involves cleaning the lint from a screen in the dryer's vent exhaust collar and/or at the end of the exhaust vent where it sticks out through a basement window or through an exterior wall. To clean the screen, remove the clamp that holds the vent to the collar, or back out the screws that hold the vent to the collar, or pull the vent straight off an extended collar. Clean the screen thoroughly and replace it in the vent assembly.
To clean the vent itself, use a vent-cleaning brush (available at hardware stores) to pull out any lint deposits. Also check the vent run to make sure that the vent piping or tubing isn't loose at the joints, or -- in the case of flexible plastic venting -- isn't sagging between hanging brackets. Breaks or sags cause undue strain on the dryer's blower system, and can cause drying problems. If the vent pipe or tubing has become clogged with lint, remove the lint by pushing a garden hose or a drain-and-trap auger through the vent to a convenient joint. Disassemble the joint to remove the debris. With this procedure, it isn't necessary to disassemble the entire vent to find the blockage.You can head off problems before they become too serious by providing routine maintenance for your dryer's door gasket, thermostat, timer, and other frequently used parts. Let's discuss how to service these important components in the next section.

Probably a thermal fuse. You'll need a continuity meter to check it, though. Once you get one, unplug it. Remove the lower panel on the front. Beneath where the lint filter sits is your lint duct. Remove it (screws at top left and right and clip at botom center) Behind it is a white peice of plastic with 2 blue wires. Unplug them and check across the two prongs on the white thermal fuse to see if it is good. Replace if nessciary. If it is bad check your vent (dryer to wall and wall to outside) for restrictions or blockages.

Sencing light on the dryer


The thermal fuse is the most common problem that can cause this. If you remove your bottom panel (2 1/4 inch screws) and then your lint duct (the area where your lint screen sits) you will see a white peice of plastic with 2 blue wires going to it behind the lint duct. That is your thermal fuse. A continuity meter can quickly be used to check to see if it is bad. If it is bad, replace it and re-install your lint duct then run you dryer on air dry (if you run it with heat, you could burn your replacment fuse out). Then go to the vent on the outside of your house. You should be able to feel a good deal of air pressure on your hand. If not, check the hose behind your dryer for kinks or being crushed (not uncommon even on "professional" instalations. If that is ok, you will need a cleaning for the house part of your vent.

Dryer installation


whether it is a plastic vent or an aluminum vent hose - you don't need to worry about heat. you do have a problem if it is really, really bent at an angle. the overall inside diameter is substantially reduced. lint that comes out of the dryer will catch at the ninety angle and clog. how obtrusive would it be if you maintain a four inch clearance at the rear of the dryer?
