796.80272900 Kenmore Dryer Noisy When Running

The customer complaint was the dryer was very noisy, I ran the dryer and did confirm it was extremely loud when the drum was turning. I unplugged the dryer and disassembled it and found two of the drum rollers were bad and worn out, wobbling on the roller shaft. The roller shaft also had metal shavings on the dryer base.

I replaced all four rollers and roller shafts, it’s always best to replace all four at once. After I replaced them it sounded like a normal dryer running.

Here’s the roller and shaft assembly for this model:

Samsung Dryer DV42H5200EW/A3 Not Heating

I found the customers dryer vent clogged on the outside of their house, which caused the thermal cut-off, which is located on the heating element housing, to go bad.

I cleaned their outside exhaust vent, and cleaned their entire vent hose exhaust in the back of the dryer of all lint.

I unplugged the dryer, then disassembled the dryer and removed the drum to get better access to it, then I ohm tested the thermal cut-off and I got no continuity on my multimeter. I also ohm tested the heating element and the high-limit thermostat and both ohm tested good.

I replaced the thermal cut-off, reassembled the dryer, plugged it in, and it started heating normally again.

Here’s the thermal cut-off(also called a thermal fuse) for this model:
DC96-00887C
DC96-00887C Thermal cut-off

Hotpoint Refrigerator HTS22GBPBRCC Not Cooling

I went out to see why this refrigerator wasn’t cooling. I found that the condenser fan motor, that’s located in the very back of the refrigerator, wasn’t running and blowing air. It had stopped running and I was getting 120 volts to it.

Also due to the condenser fan motor not running it overheated the compressor start relay and made that go bad too. So I replaced both parts and it worked great!

Here’s the condenser fan motor for this model:
WR60X10220 Condenser Fan Motor
WR60X10220 Condenser Fan Motor

Here’s the compressor start relay for this model:
