Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my dryer making a ton of noise and eating my clothes, and, how much will it cost to fix?

A:

Hello Brian.  I can fully appreciate your practical question and the economic considerations involved.   Black marks are usually caused by the clothes going through the opening between the front of the inner tub and the door bellows. This can be caused by overloading the washer or wear in the tub bearings.  With the noise you're describing it might be a bearing issue.   I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail.

the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.Keep in mind that an expert will be

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. From what you are describing it sounds like either the drum is out of alignment, the drum seals are worn or something you are putting in the dryer is causing this issue. Be sure to remove all objects from pockets and do not overload the dryer. Look inside the drum and inspect the front and rear drum seals, they should be glued to the outer perimeter of the drum. If you see a gap between the drum and supports this could indicate worn drum rollers. In order to get an estimate on the repair you will need to schedule service, but there is a service fee for this. The service fee will range between $65 - $75 depending on the area you live in. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Anne, thank you for taking the time to respond! My wife is pretty good about getting things out of our pockets, so I don't think what we put in there is likely the issue. It does appear that there is a gap in the front of the dryer, and from what my novice eyes can read and see, it sounds like we need to replace the upper part of the ring around the opening of the front panel. Also, it is likely that the drum is out of alignment, as you mentioned. Would you mind answering a couple of additional questions? 1) From what I can tell the parts may be around $75-$100. From your experience, using a professional is it likely that I can get it fixed for $200 or under? 2) As an 11 year old dryer, is it usually worth repairing or replacing? Is something else likely to go wrong? Thanks again!

Brian, I double checked the part prices for your model and you are correct, they will run between the $75- $100. Now on the service you have the service fee, the parts and the labor that will be included. The maximum price for the service fee and the parts is $175, so at most the service will run between $200- $300 (including labor). What I would suggest you do is schedule service. When the tech comes out, you will have to pay the service fee, but you an ask for a voucher for the $75 towards a new dryer. It's like a $75 off coupon for a new one. This way you get an exact estimate and then you can decide if you want to fix it. Everything I have found on this model indicates it's a really good model to have. There were very few repairs listed for it. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
