Have a Whirlpool Electric Dryer, Model LER5620KQ1 which stopped spinning. Watched some You Tube videos, opened it up and the belt is broken. Have ordered the whole repair kit.
But when I opened it up, I found a small piece of metal laying on the bottom left side, which I identified from the Bulkhead schematic as part #24, the Drum Hole Plug.
Where does this little metal "clip" go? In the schematic, it's just up there in the air, with no indication of where it hooks into. And I can't find anything about drum hole plugs anywhere on the internet.
Can you tell me where this plug goes? Because if I can't find out, when the repair kit arrives, I'll be leaving it out. If I do that, will it cause any problems?
Thanks for your help! I've never repaired an appliance before!
