T2130, T4130, T5130 Dryers with drum support rollers worn.
Here is a tip on diagnosis and repair for the prevention of the drum failure. We have been coming across a large amount of drum failures on the above models. The drum splits at the front where the support rollers run on the front drum lip. It has come to our attention, that if the cause is spotted early enough it can be prevented.
If you notice that the front drum seal has been pulled out and ends up in a load of drying, don’t ignore this! This is the first sign that you have probably got a worn out drum support roller and the drum has dropped slightly causing more pressure on the drum glides and the front drum seal. If you put your hand inside at the bottom of the drum, and feel between the bottom of the white plastic flange and the drum lip you will notice an uneven gap, most likely on the left hand side. This is a sign that a drum support roller has failed. At this point if the drum rollers, glides and seal are replaced, you will more than likely stop the failure of the inner drum and therefore extend the life of your dryer.
Drum support rollers two required, part number 487174912.
Drum seal one required, part number 128000060.
Drum glides two required, part number 125869201.
These are not to difficult to fit, although the drum must be removed from the back of the machine to allow access to these parts. All of these parts are available in the spare parts shop on this website.
I hope this is of use to you and more tips to follow soon.
