Unplug the dryer. Remove 3 small screws at the top back of the dryer that hold the lid on. Slide the lid back and you will have access to the drum from the exterior. Do this soon before the screws loosen completely and fall down into the bottom of the dryer.

How to tighten dryer baffle on HE5 electric dryer?


The dryer baffle mounting screws are located around the outside perimeter of the drum. You will need to remove the top panel of the dryer to access them. The panel comes off by locating and removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer prior to servicing. You should be able to manually rotate the drum to get to all the bolts you need to tighten.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Mod 110.67741600 ser mu2020976 dryer drum is makeing a lot of noise


Check the baffles in the dryer drum to see if any are loose. If they are not loose, spin the dryer by hand to see if noise is from inside the drum. Sometimes you will get coins caught in the baffles and all you have to do is loosen the screws, and rotate the drum a little so the coins will fall out. Then tighten the screws up and replace the cabinet. You may also have a bad drum roller inside the machine.
If you could describe the sound to me, I will be able to help you a little more.

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.

My kenmore elite HE3 elec dryer, model # 11082826101,has a loose piece in the dryer drum, how do I take the top off to fix it?


There are three screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the dryer. Remove these screws and the panel will slide back, then lift off. You should have access the outer perimeter of the drum, control board and control panel.

If you need to access the dryer bottom cabinet, remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the dryer up can offer better access to the toe panel screws ( a section of 2x4 works well for this).

There are some helpful exploded view diagrams you can use for reference at these following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com

Small items (like coins) can often get caught in the dryer drum baffles. They come off easily by removing the screws that hold them on place around the drum perimeter.

CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before servicing anything inside the cabinet. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

HE3 dryer drum metallic noise while spinning.


Hi,
The baffels are pretty easy to take out.
You will need a quarter inch nut driver.

First, you remove the top cover of the unit off by removing the 3 screws in the back. then each baffle will have 2 quarter inch screws and you can access them easily once the top cover is off.

Best of luck :)

Baffle is loose on drum. How do we get access to fix the baffle


The screws that hold the drum baffles in place are located along the outside of the drum. Usually, you need to lift the dryer top in order to access them, and they can be tightened without removing any components. However, all dryers are not contructed the same and access to the drum can vary. If you would please post a brand name and model number it would help in being able to determine exactly how your dryer is configured.
