our little short stubby

I’m going to be explaining you how to replace the felt drum seal in your dryer the reason why you might have to do this is because your dryer is noisy when running or because your getting damaged clothing out of the dryer.For this repair we will be using a short phillips head screw driver and regular sized phillips head screwdriver a 5/16th inch nut driver and a flat head screwdriver. WARNING before doing any repairs please disconnect your power source.
So this is our dryer that we’re going to be using for this demonstration its a Maytag keep in mind your dryer might be a little bit different than what we’ve got here but the same technique should still apply.

First thing you wanna do is make sure you turn your gas off. So I’ll be using a phillips head screwdriver and it’s our little short stubby guy because we’re dealing with an awkward angle and not a lot of space. Now that we’ve got those screws off we can tilt the front panel forward and those clips will come right out and now we’re going to carefully set this down we’ve still got wires connecting the front bulkhead so now all we’re going to do is just unplug these two wires here and we can set this bulkhead off to the side.
Now we’re just going to pull out the lint filter set that off to the side for now and now we’ve gotta get to a couple more screws and unscrew them they’re going to be on the inside of the dryer though and there just on this side of the lint filter.

And now we’ve just got one more screw in the middle which is a phillips head screw and now we’re got one more screw that’s holding this on so we’re just going to remove these two screws here and the whole entire piece should just come right off so now we’re going to remove the screws off of this side and we’re just holding this in place so it doesn’t fall down and now you also want to remove this blue wire here and with all that off you should be able to remove the front bulkhead and we can just set that down off to the side so this is our felt seal we’ve got two felt seals in here this is on the front of the dryer so back here this is our other felt seal right in here that’s on the back of the dryer so we’re going to be replacing the one on the front so the felt seal is held on by these little metal tabs we’re going to use a flat head screw driver to pry each one up slightly and that way we’ll be able to remove the felt seal now that I have all the tabs undone I can just simply pull out the old felt seal there we go now you can grab your new OEM replacement dryer felt seal if you don’t have one already you can find one on our online store so now to put this back in all we’re going to do is line up the felt seal put it underneath the tab and work it all the way around and you’ll see here that this just overlaps the first one again and you push that tab down try it out and the felt seal should be securely in place so you can line up your duct assembly with the blower here and that plastic will actually go on the inside that’ll help you with lining everything up and once you do that lift up on the tub a little bit and everything else should line up nicely for you so we’ve got these little tabs here and that’ll help you with the lining everything up you’re just going to want to slide the tabs into that bigger holes here and once we do that we’ll screw it back on and now we’ll plug the blue wire back in here and now we’ll screw these screws back in on the inside of the duct assembly now I can put the filter back in and now we can hook the wires back up so we’re just going to make sure that we’ve got the wires in the same arrangement that they were before yellow goes on this side and the blue one goes on this side now go back to the front and now we’re going to want to put the front panel back in place to do that we’re going to do the opposite of what we did to take it off we’re going to pick it up and angle it a bit and just tilt it back until you hear both of those clips snap into place then you should be able to close it up and now we can screw the bottom back in so you’re just going to want to make sure your panel is pushed in all the way and once you do that you should be able to get your screw started in the hole and now we can just screw it back in and once that’s screwed in you can plug everything else back in and your repair is complete now we can turn our gas back on Finally don’t forget to plug in your appliance If you need to replace any parts for your appliances you can find an OEM replacement part on our website winnipeg-appliance-repair.ca Thanks for reading and please don’t forget to like comment and share our article also don’t forget to subscribe to our website your support helps us make more articles just like these for you to read for free.
