This dryer was clunking. Two of the rollers were shot and the belt needed changing.

So I changed all 4 rollers and the belt, but still clunking.

It turns out the drum is separated about 2 inches on the seam.

Who would have figured this? I have never seen a drum that needed changing or repair.

It's way to expensive to lay on the customer now after the rollers and belt repair.

Does anyone know a way to solder or weld this tub??

Thanks,
Bruce

LG or Samsung built this dryer for GE and both LG and Samsung have been notorious for the problem of the drum coming apart at the seams.

Stupid Korean POS dryers that should never have been sold in the USA, let alone manufactured in the first place.

You can try to have it welded back together, but no guarantee that it won't happen again.
