Drum Hole Plug - Whirlpool Electric Dryer
« on: June 05, 2013, 05:44:33 AM »
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!

It's what it says it is, a plug for the drum.  The hole for it is under one of the baffles.  It's probably there to help with airflow through the drum.
