Dryer drum

7 posts in this topic

I own a used Whirlpool Duet gas dryer. When we first got it I noticed a clicking and clinking noise when it ran. I thought it was from my sons overalls. Later I noticed the same noise when there were only towels inside. I looked inside the drum and one of the fins is loose, and when I turn the drum that is exactly where the noise is coming from. I'm assuming that there is just some loose change or buttons in there. Is there a way to remove the fin without taking the drum out?

I believe the top of the Duet dryer will come off by removing a few screws in back or if back looks like it is on hinges then use a putty knife in front about 1-2" in from each side to release top.

After top if removed or raised you can very easily access the screws that attach the drum baffles and remove them to clean the junk and coins that are traped in the baffle fins.

Willie's right, the top panel does come off.  More info on a peek inside the Duet dryer here.

Thank you so much for your help! It only took me 15 minutes (not bad for a girl! ;)) and I made 80 cents in the process! Now to just get to the 1/4 inch wrench I dropped! :D That shouldn't be a problem though, I've taken the panel off the bottom of the washer before, so I'm sure it's the same on the dryer.
