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.
