ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

How do I disassemble my Maytag dryer


Depends on the model, most of them you take a putty knife and disengage the clips to lift the top located between the top and front panel, then you can remove the screw on each side and lift the front off, If it is old you then have to remove the drum support frame and the remove the belt from the motor and idler pulley and then lift the drum out. You did not leave a model so this is kind of in general. Good luck and always unplug before servicing.

How to remove drum unit from hp 2840 laser printer


Push the scanner release button(top front right side)
That opens the scanner assembly.(it lifts up)
Grab the drum handle and rotate the drum so that the handle is at the top
Lift drum straight up and out of the printer.
If you are installing a replacement, the animated directions are on the CD that came with the printer and I believe instructions come with the replacement drum.

Cracked drum lg tromm dle2512w dryer. is it worth replacing? dryer is about 3 yrs old


I'd say yes, especially if you replace it yourself to avoid a service call. Top needs to come off (screws at back, then push top back 2 inches and lift off), remove front, remove 4 screws holding front bulk head / front rollers, slip belt off tension pulley, remove drum, reverse to install.

Inside the drum, one of the metal things is loose. It appears that it is held on with screws, so they are probably loose. Could you tell me teh easiest way to access the outside of the drum so I can...


The top cover needs to be lifted to the rear of the dryer to access the outside of the drum and tighten the baffle screws. But before the top cove can be lifted, the front panel must be removed first. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the baffle screws are on top to tighten it. Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

Need a diagram of how to take the drum off of a Crosley electric dryer


Unplug or de-energize unit.

Getting the top off

Use a putty knife between the top and front about 3 inches in from either side as you pull up on the top. Taking the front loose to remove from dryer. There are 2 screws inside at each edge near the top to get the front loose after getting the top up. Pull the top of the front forward and lift it off the clips it sits on. Swing it out of the way for drum removal being careful not to pull on the wiring.

To remove the drum from here, take the belt loose from the idler pulley and lift the drum off the 2 rollers on the rear bulkhead. It will just lift out of the dryer. Good Luck

LEAKS AND SQUEAKS


If you suspect the leak is from the main drum seal.
To remove the agitator, remove the softener cap by pulling, look inside the agitator, undo the bolt (4) with long socket extension and then lift out.
5e90500.jpg Not sure if you can see the seal ("O" ring at this point, you may need to remove the inner drum.
Isolate the supply.
Lift the top cover by inserting a flat blade approx 4" in at each side at the front to release the two top clips, top cover will lift and hinge backwards out of the way.
To remove the top ring (13) from the drum, unclip each clip around the top untill released, then remove.
to remove the inner drum (10) , unbolt (7) from the inside, lift out inner drum.

Seal (1) should be visible.
