Frigidaire Dryer

Model # FDE336RES1

 

Hello,

 

I have an older Frigidaire dryer that started making noises. It squeaks and gets louder after running for about 20 minutes.

 

Recently my clothes are getting caught and stained in the edge of the drum.

 

Upon further inspection i noticed that the paint on the inner front of the drum is worn to a polished metal and there is about an inch of "play" when i push the durm "UP" inside the front of the unit, just inside the door.

 

Any suggestions or help concerning the problem(s) and what i should replace is greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Here in Philly

Thanks so much for the replies,

 

You guys are wonderful, thanks for the info. One last question... Which of the maintenance kits and the links you both provided is applicable for my machine? Which one should i go with? I forgot to include the serial # in my original post and i thought that might help identify the year of my dryer.  I am not sure what year it is. Sorry about that. If you could tell me which kit to go with would be great. Thanks so much for your time and help!!!

 

Grateful for your help,

The kit I posted is for your dryer. You don't need the serial number to look it up, just the model number. Try it yourself and see: paste your model number into one of the parts search boxes on this page and it will pull up the correct kit. The database is keyed to model number.

Oh, and all parts ordered through either the links or search boxes at this site come with a one year, no-hassle return policy, even on electrical and electronic parts that have been installed.

This repair is my most "favorite" to do. Takes a lot of shear force with a good sharp chisel to get that front bearing off.

1.Use a sharpie marker to mark where the two felt piece meet on top.
2. Clean off the front with a chisel
3. Once you get it clean apply a layer of the high temp adhesive on the felt with the plastics then apply to the section on too between the two marks you made earlier.
4. Let sit for 60 seconds to cure
5. Apply the felt to the metal with the plastic overhang facing away from the drum, aka towards the front.
6. Hold down the ends for 60 seconds, this portion is the weakest link and most likely to fail because of sloppy install. (This is why we apply two layers of adhesive, one on the felt and one on the front cover
7. Apply a layer of the high temp adhesive on the rest of the front cover. Let sit for 60 seconds.
8. Look at the long white felt piece and the portion with the beveled corner is facing up and towards the back of the drum. Make sure the beveled side is secured nicely against the metal lip.

Tips: don't get any adhesive on the top of the felt, the portion the drum rests on. If get any on your cloths, it will remain their untill you discard them

This job is my favorite, because I have made all these mistakes and had to fix them...
