It should not be a difficult operation, contact a seller here and order a replacement for your model. You will be asked for model number.

After replacing valve coils it now makes thumping noise reassembled it twice


Thumping noise is usually something with the drum system. You didn't list make and model so I'll give a few suggestions. If its Whirlpool--- the drum rides on 2 rubber rollers at the back edge that wear and need replaces if the rubber gets too bad. The front edge of the drum has a 2 piece plastic bearing strip that snaps into square holes in the front drum edge. Those 2 strips sometimes break or chip and need replaced.

If its a Frigidaire dryer----the back drum bearing is a small round metal ball that looks like a small trailer hitch ball. If fits inside a slotted plastic retainer block. The plastic block wears and the ball sometimes gets grooved and needs replaced. It comes as a complete kit (ball and socket) for about $20. The front of the drum has a similar system plastic strip as the Whirlpool I described above. Hope this helps.

I have a whirlpool RM278BXS microwave oven. Inside the microwave oven along the rear bottom is a thin strip of sealant. The sealant is melted/burned in the middle section for about 1-inch long. I can...


Your best bet is to pull out all the old seal you can, and to trim what's firm with a razor blade.

Sand it smooth if necessary, then clean it squeaky and apply new caulk / silicone sealant.

Leave the door open to allow it to dry out overnight.

If it's not repaired, moisture can cause rust, which will lead eventually disintegrate the metal and lead to to arcing and possible fire in time.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Model fde336resi loose drum


There are 2 areas to check for this dryer drum. The back center bearing looks like a small trailer hitch ball which is attached to the drum. It fits into a plastic socket on the back wall of the dryer. To remove the drum, you need to take the dryer front off and disconnect the belt that goes around the drum. Then use the belt as a handle and yank up the back of the drum to lift the ball of the drum out of the socket. The plastic socket is what usually wears but you can get a complete kit including the ball and socket for about $20. While the drum is out, look at the inside edge of the drum opening. Should be a white plastic bearing strip completely around the opening.If cracked or missing replace those also. Should be 2 strips. Thats all that supports the drum in the front.

I have a whirlpool inglis dryer that is about 5 years older and I have a 3 prong electrical cord, in the back of the dry were the electrical cable connects into the dryer (There is 3 connection locations)...


Hi johnebrenner...
Most likely cause of the wire being burned is a loose and arching connection.
I would recommend that you replace your existing cord and wire with new ones and make sure to tighten your connections very tight, but do not strip the screws by over tighting..

Dryer works but has no heat. Voltage is good. Could it be the TCO?


I suspect that your heater strips in the dryer have burned out. Just to give you an idea, I have replaced my heater strips in my 40+ year Whirlpool dryer two additional times over the years. You will have to take the back off of the dryer after disconnection the 220V plug and examine the heater strips.

Dryer - high current has caused the red wire in the 220


The problem is usually caused by a bad connection, or loose wire.
Strip back wire, and remake connection, if the terminal is burnt, it may be neccessery to replace the connector or box.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
