My dryer was making a noise
« on: January 18, 2011, 06:35:02 PM »
I was busy diagnosing my newest dryer. The wife told me it was making a weird noise. So I dragged it out into the daylight and did some checking. Click on the pictures to enlarge:

More from today:
The wheels were nice and the innards was clean I found 31 cents. So I opened the back side and found the problem: One of them wire thingys from a woman's undergarment of some sort.
Looks like I am gonna have ta discuss filter cleaning again.  :tickedoff:

She's sweet now! By the way I found a set of double ended bits for the Black and Decker electric screwdriver for $4. Got all kinds of bits all in a rubber sleeve. Way Cool.

jw
back in the day when i did appliance repairs the most exciting thing was to find coins in the dryer and give it to the kids that were standing there watching me fix their "mom" dryer.
what a great feeling
i hope you gave the 31 cents to your grandkids i know you did!
by the way in NY it was 22 degrees i'll take your 65 all's its been doing is snowing up here in the northeast

regards
