The tumble wrungs on the inside of my dryer are falling off

One of the wrungs inside my dryer fell off, I didn't know how to get it back on and don't have the money to call a professional. Then a second one fell off, there's only one left, and my clothes take forever to dry because I have to seperate them and put them through 2 or 3 times. Help!!

Tools needed
phillips scre driver
paint scraper
insert the scraper between top and front
slide to the sides till you feel the clips
push each one in till it releases
top should now flip up
you will need the screws but if you dont have then they are at the bottom of the machine
replacements are 2'' long 5/16 head wood srews
you should be able to see where the tumblers(wrungs) fit they only fit one direction front to back
if the holes are stripped or broken you may need to order new ones part number on the bottom
but i have found a lil gorrila glue in the hole and then screwwing them in usually works

sears parts 02100002 subs to y02100002
5 bucks a peice

I wonder if Gorilla Glue or Mighty Mend It might work, not sure about the heat. There are also these spiked balls that you can put in your dryer that help to separate and soften clothes. If nothing else, buy 2 sets of these.

Anyone have a picture of connections for a indesit idv65 tumble dryer,changed my belt and they fell off before i could take a picture of them


undo all of front (leave wires attached),,,, undo sides (take screws out of left and right sides approx 10 screws at back),,,,place belt round drum near mark left by old one,,,, lean on front of drum to lower drum to the motor spindle,,,,,,pushing hard down on drum will bend the drum on the inside as it touches the motor housing (don't worry it bends back),,,,,,,you should then have the drum close enough to the spindle to lever the belt over by hand,,,,,pull drum back up,,,,,rotate by hand to let the belt self align,,,,shouldn't come off spindle if you put it on with 3-4 grooves spare,,,,,, do back up (10 screws),,,,put front back on and pull drum onto the lip on the front of the frame, the new belt may be squeaky until it is wore in, Hope this helped Tim

Inside the drum, there are three "panels" attached to to the wall of the drum. I guess they are used to tumble the clothes so the heat is evenly exchanged? One of the panels broke off. ...


It wont hurt anything to use it like that. The screws probably fell outside the drum when they came loose. You can look at the other two to see how they are fastened if you want to put it back on.

The plastic piece inside the dryer (about 18"


If you are referring to the "fins", there are 3 of them that tumble the clothes, you can refer to some previous questions. You will need to remove the top first and then tighten them up. I have to replace one of my "fins" because it broke off inside of the dryer.

Zanussi tc7103w condenser dryer-water tank light keeps coming on when tank is empty or nearly empty-have found small plastic float and spring on floor behind dryer-where do they fit?


I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this

I have a Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer, model 76712691. The dryer has 3 plastic ''tumblers'' inside the dryer, to help the clothes tumble. Two of the tumblers have fallen off inside, leaving big holes inside...


Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Good luck.
