Remove the lin filter. remove the 2 screws at the lint filter area. next put a smal screw driver or butter knife in the seam between top panel and front panel. push down or pull up on the tool to release the left and the right sides.

On spin cycle sounds like change or rocks spinning around in drum.


Could be a bad bearing or something loose on the drum that doesn't rattle until you get up to spin speed. Look for something like pins, nails or screws stuck in the holes of the drum, or possibly under the protuberances (fins) inside the drum. Does the sound occur all through the spin cycle or only at top speed?

What could be the cause of my Samsung electric dryer DV5451A tearing towels when drying?


Most likely one of the vanes in the drum has got a gap that is catching it, or perhaps a fastener has worked it's way loose and is hooking the towels.

Making thumping noise and burning clothes


You list no brand or model so an answer must be somewhat vague. A loose drum causes the noise described while it also allows air to leak from outside the normal air flow path causing erratic high/low temperatures contributing to burning. Sometimes clothes can also get caught in the gaps caused by the tub moving excessively which causes tears, pinches and rips in clothing. Most dryers will have rollers and/or glides to carry the weight at the front of the drum. Check to determine if these are worn, loose or broken. A few models carry all the weight at the rear of the drum (Frigidaire and some GE) so check the rear bearing for excess wear and replace as needed. It's always a good idea to also clean debris and lint from inside the cabinet while the dryer is disassembled for repairs.

Fin on gas dryer loose.


The model number is generally inside the door or door jamb area. The top must be removed to access the drum to tighten the screws to the fin

Fins inside drumare loose


Open the top ... held down with spring clips ... remove the front panel ... probably 2 to 4 screws ... be careful of the wires ... unplug the machine of course. Remove the drum ... but first observe the belt arrangement so you can reinstall. Tighten the 'fins'. Reverse the procedure.

You can use a pry or large screw driver to pop the top. Be careful of the finish.

Hi, We have a Neptune dryer that has lost all of its 3 fins.


yes this is to me, you have to take off the door, and panel, loose bolt that holds top to front panel and you will be able to turn the drum and reinstall baffles with screws, you may need to add a flat washer if the holes have stretched.

thanks

Sheets literally get burn marks


Look for a loose Tub Fin and tighten it if its loose.Also,If the dryer has bad drum supports than it will allow this problem to occur.Other than that visually inspect the inside area in dryer to see if there is some thing sticking up that is catching the item.
