    The axel or shaft is solid and goes thru the roller on both ends. It appears to me that one of the welds broke at the point where it goes thru the roller, which would cause it to leak. I would take off roller handle, remove a hub if you have one , just grind tack welds off that hub that covers where axel goes thru hub, don't over grind as rollers are usually made of thin gauge material. Once you expose axel where it comes thru roller you'll be able to see most likely a broken weld. Center axel if weld is completely broken to the drum. Use low heat ( amps ) when welding or you will make a bigger hole. I've fixed many of these rollers over the yrs and when they make these at the manufacturing plant, welders sometimes are in a hurry and results in a poor incomplete weld. If your not that good of a welder, take it to a weld shop.

True prep table leaking water.


The drain tube that drains out the water is plugged. It runs from inside the cabinet to under the refrigeration unit outside the cabinet. Try to clean it out with a can of compressed air used to clean keyboards and see of that works.

Hello,
I have a good idea that it may be the following;

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.
You can check out other possibilities and order parts here using the following link;

Good Luck!

Drive Belt


If the dryer makes noise, the belt may be frayed or damaged. If the belt is damaged, it will make noise every time it travels around the pulleys. The drive belt is a long, narrow band that wraps around the entire drum, then around a tension pulley and the motor pulley.

Drum Roller

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers. If one is worn out replace all of them at the same time as a preventative measure.





Drum Roller Axle

Over time the drum roller axles can wear out, causing the rollers to wobble. If this happens the dryer makes noise. If the dryer is making a rumbling noise, check the rollers and axles. If any are worn out, replace them all at the same time.





Blower Wheel

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.





Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.





Drum Support Roller & Axle

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers or axles may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers and axles. If one is worn out replace all of them at the same time as a preventative measure.





Drum Support Bearing

The drum support bearing is at the rear of the drum. If the dryer makes noise check this bearing. If it is worn out, replace the entire bearing.





Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.





Drive Motor

Although not very common, if the dryer makes noise the drive motor may be worn out and the motor bearings can become noisy. If this happens the drive motor must be replaced. The bearings are permanently sealed and cannot be lubricated.

Lg dryer replace drum rollers


never lubricate a drum roller ,it will attract lint and hold it like a magnet possibly making your problem worse. graphite lube possibly - as used in door locks.but this will be only a temporary fix. replacement is the only way to go.

Upper rack roller axles are brittle and 1 has


Our upper wheel failed. It is part of the huge assembly called the "Rack Adjust" on our model # PLD4460REC Frigidaire Dishwasher and cost $88 to $120. Hey.. thanks to the guy above I was able to fix my machine without spending to much!! for a huge part when all I needed was the upper wheel. the part # for the upper wheels is = PS976006 and is for another model dishwasher (Sears located it for me first.. without trying to make me buy the huge assembly) but might work... I will order and give them a try. The model # referenced about seems to be incorrect... We used model # PLD2855RFC1... as google helped us fill in the missing part# letters. I asked frigidaire... why they encouraged customers to borrow this small part from the store display.. why not just sell it!! .;)

Water dispensing but also leaking from the back


Pull the fridge out and remove the back panel . Have someone press the water dispensor and watch for the leak . Usually , the plastic line at the water valve breaks off , and removing the broken piece and reinserting the line , fixes it . You may have to remove the 1 screw holding the water valve on , to gain access to remove the broken piece of line . The water valve itself , could also have a hole in it , spraying , due to long period of water pressure . Just replace the water valve , if this is the problem .

1993 Ford F-150 drum brake problem


It appears the rear axle shaft seal is leaking. You will need to pull the axle and replace the seal. Then check the rear end for adequate gear oil. The iron filings I am not to sure about. It sounds as if something came loose from the brakes or brake hardware and got chewed up in the drum. You will need to replace the brake shoes and maybe the brake hardware kit. Always change the shoes or pads on both sides when working on brakes, rear or front. If the inside of the drum is not perfectly smooth it will need to be turned or replaced. If this were brake fluid leaking from the wheel cylinder the master cylinder would be low on fluid and your brake pedal would go down much further than normal.

Leak in formed pond


It worked for one season on mine. As the crack got older it became longer and wider. Mine was due to not sinking the pond all the way into the ground which caused stress from the weight of the water causing it to crack more. The second season I used a water epoxy putty I bought at home depot in the glue dept. It is greenish blue and turns white after mixing and can be used underwater if necessary. I filled the gap and then placed the repair liner like you are showing over the top and sealed the edges with a black waterproof silicone. This also worked for a season. Now the crack is even larger and wider and nothing I am doing this year is holding! I can't seem to find one the same size and shape or I would replace it. My next attempt is going to be a plastic welding kit, but I haven't tried it yet. Good luck.
