New Drum, Rollers Too?
« on: September 08, 2009, 11:27:51 PM »
LG DLE9577 Dryer - We've been running her with a crack in the rear seam for about six thumping months
I need to get this done with one shot - get parts 1st, in and out
I've seen other posts that suggest "Repair Guy" protocall is to replace rollers w/ the drum
But I consider this may be a pad the bill story
Should I expect that the rollers will need to be replaced too?

Would you put new tires on your car without having them balanced?
Get the rollers.

Mission complete & Mama's happy again - just stopped back to say, THANKS

I did not make clear, this was a DIY job

I did not spend the extra $80 and replace the rollers but did oil them & the tensioner - good tip

Based on all the lint build-up that was cleaned from the inside of the unit & vent, I set a clean schedule every 3 years.  WOW, what a fire hazzard.

Thanks again, Boys
