Screw fell out of pocket between drum and inerds...

I apparently had a deck screw in my pocket that made it through the washer and fell out in the dryer. (when I heard the noise I stopped the dryer and found another screw in the vent opening) it somehow got sucked into the space between the drum and the surrounding space of the dryer...and now (depending on the weight of the load in the dryer) scrapes as the drum turns.

Is there a manual on how to take the front of the dryer off to get to that space to retrieve the screw? anyone ever do this before with success?

thanks.

Dnkmett, the dryer actually comes apart from the rear. Remove the rear top section, remove the 28 screws holding the rear panel, unhook the belt and remove the assy. When putting it back together be sure to reset the broken belt switch after putting the belt back on. That switch is on the motor beside the idler pulley.

Whirlpool cabrio dryers makes loud squealing noises and I replaced rollers. What else could this be please?


Did you replace the belt tensioner wheel? That's what it usually is. The only other place is where the front of the drum sits on some nylon bushings or ring. Make sure nothing has come out of pockets like a screw or coin and stuck there, or nylon bushing missing. The back of the drum also has a felt that items can stick to.

Dryer is making a thumping noise


Next time you install the screw use some "Locktite" screw lock compound on the screw and it will not fall out again.

As for problem with the noise this could be your problem:
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

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. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

One of the 3 wings fell off inside dryer drum.


unplug the dryer,open the door,remove the two phillips screws that hold the door on,the screws are in the middle of the hidges,look at the other side and remove the two screws that are there,pull off the front panel grabbing it at the top where the top screws were and pull forward the bottom of panel is on clips,just slide the panel up off the clips,now spin the drum until the baffle that you need to repair is in the lower right hand corner and you can get to it there.if the holes are to big for the screws add a washer to stop the screws from falling through the holes,sometimes the screws get ripped through the holes making the holes to big for the screw heads and a washer needs to be added,let me know how you make out

Hello, My DLE3777W is making the Tennis Shoe sound. Also one of the plastic agitators from the dryer drum fell off. Could someone outline the steps how to fix it? The drum appears fine (minus the plastic...


I hired a guy to come over..was astounded by a few things:

1) LG has entrusted their service to idiots..not surprising. If they insist on raiding the 7/11's of the world for staff..this is what you get. Here in Canada it really is a joke. I had to give the service desk a Geography lesson for BC..( I live in Vancouver)

2) These machines are so simple. After watching the Monkey take it apart (I helped him) I realized he had already served his purpose and cut him loose. The Drum just needed re-aligning and clean up the dust bunnies and re=attach the plastic bit to the now exposed drum.(but I used washers ) as the screw holes had "grown" larger on the drum.

3) The image of the nice Maytag repairman is long dead. It's got that "used car salesman" feel to it now. ..at least in this town. What an assortment of Jokers. I called at least 5 places with all insisting on $80 just for driving over..then around 85$ per hour plus parts ..Jesus. One clown less than half a mile insisted he needed $60 for the drive. Then $79 per hour labor.

Maytag dryer how do I fix a baffle that fell off


You need to access the drum from its exterior. Then you can screw the baffle back on from the outside of the drum. Please post m/n for access instructions.

Inside paddle fell off


Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top.Rotate the drum around and reach inside the drum. Re-attach that baffle.
