If the tumbler is loose and you can move it from side to side the bearings in the rear of the drum may be going bad. The bearings aren't an expensive part, the job is just time consuming because you need to remove the outer casing of the dryer and take the drum out. The sides of the dryer stay together the front should come straight off and if the top doesn't come straight off it will tip back on hinges so the wires stay intact. You may need two people to replace the bearings once you get the drum off because they are generally screwed in from inside the drum.

Inside the drum one of the tumblers is loose how do you tighten it up?


Hello,
You can tighten those baffles by getting to outside of drum to thighten the screws that hold them to drum. to get access to outside of drum;
Remove screws from door hinge

remove screws from other side of inside door as they are exaclty opposite the ones for hinges

pull off from panel by putting putty knife/screwdriver in seam between front panel/cabinet just below the sloped part of the top and pop off front panel

in the upper corners of the top/front panel is a clip that looks likea inverted "7" or if ya will a up side down "L" remove screws from the clips and remove the clip

now ya can raise top to get to outside of drum

rotate drum by hand in CLOCKWISE direction to turn drum so ya can get to each baffle

Thanks for using FixYa.com,
Gene

Fin that tumbles clothing inside dryer coming loose, how can I tighten it?


These fins are usually screwed on from the outside of the drum. If you're up to it this is a simple but time consuming fix. Take the cabinet off the front of the dryer, the top will come off as well. be careful of the wires from the control console, they will stay attached to the dryer. Tighten the tumbler fins on the drum and then re-assemble the cabinet. Typically the screws you need to access are the same used for the door latch and hinges. They go back together easy ........

I have a Kenmore dryer. The fins are real loose, make alot of noise, catch socks, etc. How can I fix it.?


If the first three digits of the model number are "110." remove the lint filter from the top and remove the two exposed screws. Then you can insert a putty knife or similar tool into the gap between the front panel and top, about 2-1/2 inches in from the sides, and push in on the retaining clips. While pushing on a clip, simultaneously lift on that corresponding top corner, and the top will release to swing up.

This will expose the outside of the tumbler. As you spin the tumbler, each spot where a baffle is attached will come into view. After making sure there are no items inside the baffles (coins, pins, etc.), tighten the holding screws.

Short baffle is loose


You can pop the top with a drywall putty knife there is two tabs on each side. This will allow you to access the drum. Then tighten the screws holding the baffle in place.

A tumbler fin


This isn't much help, but those fins will break off. I have had them break off. I am ordering some new ones, called "baffles" and will be installing them. I hope I can the top open on the machine.
