In Topic: LG DLE0442W Dryer making noise

22 May 2013 - 08:09 AM

Get a good flashlight and start the dryer with no cloths inside......................Look towards the rear and watch the cylinder rotate.......Top and bottom, near the rollers................is it round or is it out-of-round?????...........The cylinder is thin stainless steel.....warps easily......



Good tip, CTG!  I forgot about those waffa-thin dryer drums in the LG and Samsung dryers.  

Yes it is our of round, but that looks like it is because the seal is bad and the rollers are bad.  How do I know from looking at it if it will need a drum as well?

In Topic: LG WM0532HW Washing machine

I received a comment that my washer making noise could be a bad drum bearing or bad drum support spider.  I tugged on the inner drum and it does move up and to the right but not down or to the left.  The bolt on the back is tight and the splines are not stripped.  How do I go about a tear down of the unit and any idea on what these parts can cost?


If I decide to replace rather than fix can it still be run until the new one arrives?
