Question about Dryers

How do I use the drying rack for my Whirlpool duet dryer? I know how to insert the rack in the drum. The problem comes when I turn the dryer on and the rack starts tumbling. Should the drum be revolving around the rack?

I don't know if you have figured it out but it took me awhile ha ha ha yes the positioning is important but before you add the wire to the plastic rack if you look on the sides there is more than just one hole you can adjust the length that is needed for the size of her dryer

Yes - drum revolves around rack. Shouldn't tumble! Insert the dryer rack inside the dryer drum. You must line up the wire on the back of the rack with the ledge of the inner dryer panel. Front of rack tucks into or above lint trap

Hi dear.Here is some help from the user manual.I hope that helps.Thanks. DryingRack
To use the drying rack
Do not remove the lint screen.
1. Open dryer door.
2.
Place drying rack inside dryer drum, positioning the back wire
on the ledge of the inner dryer back panel. Push down on
front edge of drying rack to secure over the lint screen.
3.
Put the wet items on top of the rack. Leave space between
the items so air can reach all the surfaces.
NOTE: Do not allow items to hang over the edge of the rack.
4.
Close the door.
5. Select a timed drying cycle and temperature, or an air cycle
(see following chart). Items containing foam, rubber, or plastic
must be dried on a clothesline or by using the Air Only
temperature setting.
6. You must select a time by pressing MORE TIME or LESS
TIME. Reset time as needed to complete drying. Refer to the
following table.
7. Press (and hold) HOLD TO START button (about 1 second).
NOTE: You must remove rack for normal tumbling. Do not use
automatic cycles with the drying rack.
This chart shows examples of items that can be rack dried and
the suggested cycle, temperature setting and drying time. Actual

How to use the dryer rack in dryer ??? how to set up so doesnt spin.


The dryer rack should hook to the bottom of the door opening(using the lip of the door). If the rack is properly placed the drum should be able to turn without touching the dryer rack. Some dryers have the option of turning off the drum. If your dryer does not have this button or a dryer rack position on the timer dial then you cannot turn off the drum.

Whirlpool duet dryer felt seal replacement


The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.
