SOURCE: how to repair paddle inside drum paddle that fell

To replace this "paddle" (It's callde a baffle), you'll need to access the outside of the tumbler (drum), by lifting the top.

Begin by removing the door. Remove the two hinge screws. You will then be able to rock the door and hinge out of the slot in the front panel. Next, remove the cover plates just opposite the hinges.

Now you can pull the front panel off the retaining clips and rock it downward, away from the rest of the cabinet. Once it clears the top, you can lift it off the bottom hooks. Just set it aside.

You will now see two screws (hex-head, 5/16 inch), just under the corners of the dryer top. Remove them and rotate the brackets that hook into the top. Removing the brackets will allow you to now swing the top upwards to expose the tumbler.

Just turn the tumbler until you can see the screw holes for the babble holding screws. You may get lucky and find the three baffle screws in the bottom of the cabinet. Re-install, check the others, and re-assemble the dryer in reverse order, and you're done!

How do I clean the lint from the dryer drum paddles?


They are connected to the drum which means you have to disassemble down to the drum and remove and clean. Its a major job so not sure you would want to tackle.

Coins inside Kennmor dryer drum paddles


You will need a thin putty knife. Run the drier to get it warm inside. Use the putty knife to slip under the paddles and lift them just enough to let the coins drop out when you rotate and raise the drum on that side.

Change has gotten in the drum and is making noise as it spins. How do I get to it?


Take the top off the dryer and remove (or loosen) the screws that hold the paddles in the drum
The change will slide out of the paddles inside the drum as you revolve the tub.

Why do sheets ball up and not get dry


Make sure there is a paddle inside the drum, the paddle is a baffle plate on the inside of the drum that helps to avoid this.

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.

My kenmore series dryer is making noise as it runs. It heats but makes a noise as if coins are in the dryer. I cannot see anything from inside the dryer, is there a way to remove the front face of the...


there's 2 basic ways to removing the front panel. First is 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel, when removed the panel can be lifted and un-hinged from the top. The other is by using a flat screw driver and prying the top up at the edges on the front side the removing 2 screws or hex screws located inside the front panel toward the top. make sure you undo door swich wires before completely removing the front panel. then in the middle of the drum on the inside of it either 1-3 screws hold the drum to the back. Remove belt first then screws then pull drum straight out. The noise may be from your rear drum bearing or coins have gotten in the paddles of the drum(inside) paddles can be removed. I had coins in one of my paddles, made 60some cents lol at same time found perfctly round lint balls. Good Luck
