How to replace a broken drum baffle in a Whirlpool / Kenmore dryer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 12 January 2012 · 2,067 views

The drum baffles in a dryer are those plastic ridges that stick out in the drum. They look like this:

Without those drum baffles, the clothes would get wadded up into a tangled ball that wouldn't dry werf a shi'ite. If one of the baffles is broken off inside your dryer, it's an easy and inexpensive repair. Here's the part link to the baffle ==> Dryer Drum Baffle

And here's how to install it:

Simple Solution for Poor Drying Complaints in Dryers With Moisture Sensors

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 10 January 2012 · 1,274 views

I've been reading the previous 50 or so posts tonight---and noticed several visitors to the forum had a common "problem" with their dryer---which uses a MOISTURE SENSOR.

The complaint was identical:

"Laundry doesn't always dry" (and the vent system was ruled-out)

The responses were similar:

"Avoid small loads in dryers that have/use MOISTURE SENSORS"

or...

"For small loads---use the TIME DRY cycle"




There is a solution---and it's a very simple one.

Some years back---I had an older lady (widow)---that contacted us regarding her LG dryer.
Her complaint was that the laundry was not dry at the end of the cycle.
Also---the cycle run time/duration was rather short (cycle ended far earlier than initial time displayed).

In her case---she does not wash/dry large loads at all---and rarely does she even have medium sized loads to wash.

On LG dryers---the MOISTURE SENSOR ("bars") are located at the front of the dryer---on the LINT FILTER HOUSING.

If the dryer is dead-level---which hers was---a small load of laundry will tumble in the GIANT DRUM and very erratically come into contact with the MOISTURE SENSOR.

By raising the REAR LEVELING LEGS about an inch---this forced the tumbling small load of laundry to remain at the *front* of the dryer---continually falling/contacting the MOISTURE SENSOR.

On dryers (other brands) in which the sensors are positioned at the rear/back of the drum---simply raise the *front* leveling legs to get the same result.

Technicians can demonstrate to the customer by running the dryer with 2 or 3 small pieces of clothing---laundry will either tumble at the rear of the drum or near the center (in an LG dryer--for example).

Explain to the customer---the MOISTURE SENSORs function and that wet/damp laundry *must* continually come into contact with the sensor (show the customer the location of the sensor).

After adjusting the legs---the customer/owner will notice the laundry moving toward the SENSOR location with 30 seconds of starting the cycle---and remain at that location in the drum for the duration of the cycle.

Dry laundry.

Problem solved :)
