No, I can not rotate the drum.
Yes, I can get behind it.
hello, are you there?
Did you get my Answer as I have not seen a rating yet. Thanks
yes, I got your answer but I'd like to fix it first before I apply my rating. I'm having a hard time removing the panel. Do you have any tutorials with a stackable machine?
I think the lint trap is in the way of removing the panel. Do I remove the silver metal piece that was behind the font cover? It seams as though the drum is attached to the front panel. Is the drum attached to the front panel? I can see clips of some sort that coming from the panel rim and through the drum rim, is that right? How do I remove it?
I finally got it off but the font panel had a plastic rim that had clips attached to the drum. It broke, that's how I was able to get it off. I unscrewed the bearing hitch before I removed the drum. It's hard to lift it off the bearing support. Can I use a rubber mallet to help jolt it loose?
Thank you Appliance Guru! It tumbles but now it only heats very hot. The other settings do not work. What do I do now? I can see the coil burning hot red through the back of the drum which I never seen before. I'm afraid something can catch on fire. Please help.
I found out that the heater coil was touching the metal housing causing it to ground and run hot. After I fixed that problem, it did not heat. I opened it again saw that the coil was broken so I replaced it. Now it is running hot again even though I know it is not grounding.
I noticed that the plastic insulation on some of the wires grouped together melted. I looks like it may be touching each other. Could that be the problem?
There is no restriction of air flow.
None of the other settings such as "Air Dry" is not working. There is only one temperature, hot.
It melted so much when it was grounding that I cannot separate it. They are definitely fused together. They must sell these wires in groups with plug terminals, right? I can't imagine re-doing each wire individually then trying to establish a good connection at the terminal plugs. What are your thoughts?
