    Samsung Dryer

    My dryer started making rubbing and high pitched squeaking noises this morning. Then it quit.

    Well there's a repair video for just about everything online these days. Which is helpful, cause there's almost no room to work inside a dryer cabinet.

    I knew what the problem had to be even before I tried to get inside--a failed idler pulley.

    But Samsung must have at least 30 different dryer cabinets. And each one comes apart differently. After watching 4 or 5 videos, I thought I was ready to tackle it. Mine was different yet.

    But the main reason I'm writing is to say that I was astounded how much lint was inside the dryer cabinet. Just about the entire inside was covered. The lint trap housing itself, had enough to make a softball sized lump. No wonder these things catch fire.

    I'd recommend that as part of the yearly exhaust hose clean out, the lint trap housing is removed and cleaned out also. You could get in there with a dryer vent brush and a crevice tool on a shop vac.

    Sorry no pics. Couldn't get a good angle for a shot.

    10.00 part It'll be here Sunday. 5 minute install and 30 min to put back together, then we'll see.

    I do that to my 13 year old gas dryer, vacuum out all lint! And oil take up bearing.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    I repaired my GE a couple of times. Eventually the plastic parts holding the rub strips began breaking off. The lint trap section had big piece break out of it too. Some of the issues may not be all of GE though. The missus likes to dry things like jackets with tennis balls in there. I imaging that is part of the problem. The cat would not make near as much noise....

    I have a Samsung dryer also and had to replace the belt a couple of weeks ago. Is a pain to take the front apart all the way to get the belt on the drum. I also found a lot of lent inside the dryer. Be careful as I was pulling the tension pulley back with my arm stuck through the small access hole with the belt my hand slipped off and I hit my arm on the side if the sheet metal. 7 stitches later I got the belt on. Wear a thick long shirt reaching through that stuff. No reason for them not to make the back of the dryer removable but they don't. You take the front off to get the belt on then take a small panel off the back and reach through to put it on the pulley.
