The screws for the paddle can be accessed by removing the small back panel. If they are stripped out you will need a new paddle.

Dryer is "eating" clothes; how do we fix it?


I suggest you find someone to "get inside" the machine drum and find out what is damaging the clothes. I could not find the machine in "Sears Parts" to look at the drum. (They have pictures for most all US machines). I am not sure the drum might not need to be removed to repair it. There should be something there that is "snagging" the clothes and could be sanded down or smoothed somehow. If it has removable "paddles" to tumble the clothes, sometimes one could come loose and need tightening. I have seen heavy objects like large tennis shoes loosen a paddle.
Be blessed.

MY Estate TGDX640JQ Gas Dryer PROBLEM IS AS FOLLOWS ALL THE CLOTHING GOT BLACK SPOTS ALL OVER (DOESNT COME OUT ) SOMEONE SAID ITS FROM THE DRUM! ANY ADVICE?


It could be your washer leaking oil into the tub
Check paddles inside dryer drum for looseness if something oily got under
the paddles it will leak onto the clothes
Check felt strip at the back (and front) of the tub if it came off it could transmit junk into your dryer
if this was helpful please rate me.

When the drum gros around, it sounds as if a coin


Hi The noise you are hearing is coming from the baffles inside the drum. These are attatched to the drum with screws from the outside of the drum. Something as gotten inside these baffles and causing the moise.
Remove the front ot top panel (Depending on what model) and take the screws out so the baffle releases.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Fin / paddle has come loose in the drum.


Hi,


The paddles are the plastic things inside the metal drum. they are held in by tabs that slide into slots in the drum and a metal tab from the drum flips over a ledge underneath the paddle.
if its loose you may need to replace it, they are available as a spare part and come with instructions. you will need to varify which version you have by counting the bumps on the end of the padle, should be 2 or 3.
basically you put a small screwdriver down on of the holes in the top of the paddle, i think the 3rd one, to push the metal drum tab down enough to be able to pull the paddle towards you and out of it's slots. carefull not to push the tab down too far as it will bend inside the drum and isd pain to bend back again.

Any further help, Let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Excessive wear between paddle and panshaft?


You can drill and tap the paddle, where it faces the flat on the shaft, and install a small setscrew. Something like a 10-32. Make sure you use a nylok screw or use a thread locking compound (available @ auto parts stores) to prevent the screw from working loose and getting into your bread! Just tighten the screw enough for a snug fit so that it can be removed for cleaning.

Kneading blade will not cone out toastmaster 1171


I also had a breadmaker where the paddle didn't want to come out. (I acquired it that way.) After trying to take it apart, using a pliers (wrapped a cloth around the paddle), squirting WD-40, and a few other things, I finally had my male friend try getting it loose. He finally did, using the pliers with a cloth around the paddle. After that incident, I oil all of my paddles (cooking oil or butter). I buy and sell bread makers so I've had dozens but only one with that problem. Usually, soaking does the trick. Hope this helps.
