    check inside for anything that may have caught between drum and outside wall

    How do I do that? I have something bouncing between the drum and the plastc housing. It will keep the drum from turning. Probably a sock

There is something stuck in between the drum and the drum cover how do I get into it thx

Disconnect the machine. If you can get hold of a wire and put it in between the drum and the cover. If that does not work get out the manual, and look for how to open the drum. If the manual does not help you, try screwing the back off and lift the drum and put a wire in between the drum and the cove. I hope you can loosen what seems to be stuck. Kolbrun

Clothes stuck in drum

You might have a drum glide, felt piece, that has come off or unaligned itself from the drum. Contact Frigidaire for one and replace it. You have too much of a gap in the front and that is why your clothing material gets caught.

The washeers drum sounds a bit nosy I think smething might be stuck inside the inner drum. How do I get to check the inner drum?

the inside of the drum makes a clicking sound, and I located the noise at the back of the drum and the noise seem's to be in the central part where the bearings is located.

Belt seems to tight cant attach drom to moter

To check to see if the drum is free, spin the drum by hand, there should be no resistane at all.
If there is, then it could be the drum bearings are siezed, or there could be something stuck between the inner and outer drum.
If drum is free, then try again, they are tight to fit, I assume you have right size belt?

Bosch condenser dryer drum has stopped turning it seems to be stuck

if the drum will not turn by hand and the motor hums the fan is probably stuck on something. My fan broke into pieces and some of the parts got stuck stopping the drum. Pull the back off and replace the fan.

Drum stuck fast

sounds like the drum bearings may have seized, or they are worn and the belt has come off and wrapped around the drum pulley. a few things you can check are:-

does the inner drum have any up and down movement to it?

does the belt appear to be on ok? (you will need to remove the lid to see)

have you noticed any black marks on the clothes recently?

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfuness of this reply, thanks kj

I want to replace the toner unit.

Release lever is for releasing TONER out of drum not for releasing drum... drum should pull out slightly up and forward with toner attached fully. If it is stuck then their may check if a  sheet of a4 is stuck and holding it in.
