GE Dryer DBVH512EF0WW drum appears loose and making scraping sound

2 posts in this topic

GE Dryer DBVH512EF0WW, the dryer drum appears to be loose, making loud scraping sounds when on and clothes are catching and getting ripped. The drum can be pulled forward about 1/2 and inch. Local technician telling us it will be about $400 to fix, and it is only 4 years old. I really don't want to get rid of it, it has been a great dryer otherwise and wonder if it can be fixed. There appears to be a ring around it that might be split as well.

If you open the door is there sharp metal at the top of the opening, if so the 400 dollar estimate is correct.

What happens is the slides wear away and start making noise and if you dont fix it right away the drum wears through the plastic bearing holder and starts making more noise, then if you dont fix it then the drum starts eating through the metal of the front panal.

I have actually seen people not call for service untill the drum starts wearing a hole into the door itself and eventualy jams the drum so the dryer finaly stops working. By that time its too late to save.
