Fisher Paykel DEGX2 dryer inlet bearing removal/installation
Posted 21 November 2010 - 05:54 AM
I am in the process of replacing the inlet bearing kit on my FP DEGX2 dryer, which by all accounts should be pretty simple. However, as I begin to remove the drum inlet cap screw (which should take about 10 turns) the screw continues to rotate without coming off. I fear that I am actually turning the entire inlet bearing assembly, which is giving me the sense that something is stripped as it has loosened some, but not enough to remove, and makes a lot of grating noise in the process.
Any help, manuals, etc, would be appreciated.
