Question about Dryers
Posted by Anonymous on
The drum has three parts (depending on your dryer) all of which you can check. Under the drum to the front there are two felt pads that the drum rides on check to see if they are bad, although this more than likely will not make the drum loose. Next I would check your drive belt, if it is stretched the drum may be loose. There is also a bearing behind your drum, you may have to remove your drum to get to this and it is usually screwed in from the inside of your drum. If you can get the upper deck of your dryer off (for regular dryers if you remove two screws on the inside of the door the deck will tilt back on hinges) you should be able to view the top of your drum with the belt over it. Grab the back of the drum and try to move it left and right, if the bearings are bad enough there will be a lot of play in it.
