Today I did the deed, dryer is fixed! Left the dryer in top of the washer for the repair. Rick's description was the best, big ball mounted on the rear of the drum, rides in a plastic cup mounted on the rear wall of the dryer. I bought the kit from appliance parts pro's, $24 delivered. I also replaced the water lines to the washer while I had the stack pulled away from the wall.
Top of the dryer has spring clips at the front edge, hinge at the rear, YouTube videos show the way. Looks like this particular Kenmore was made by Frigidaire. Really a pretty easy job, but took about half a day because I spent a lot of time cleaning up 17 years of accumulated lint and dust. I did not (yet) replace the nylon strips that the front of the drum rides on, that'll be next. -- Max Dillon Charleston SC '87 300TD '95 E300 _______________________________________ http://www.okiebenz.com To search list archives http://www.okiebenz.com/archive/ To Unsubscribe or change delivery options go to: http://mail.okiebenz.com/mailman/listinfo/mercedes_okiebenz.com
