Fisher&Paykel DEGX1UD dryer
Hello all I am hoping member DADOES will see this call for help. Purchased this dryer 6-21-05 had motor replaced 9-19-08. The bearing was making a noise that sounded like a squeeky spring but the tech and I found it to be a motor bearing,according to tech no servicing is done on this motor by F&P dealers, this cost me $ 286.39 for a new motor installed. Now for a week or so same problem and as before in one dirrection only. I kept the old motor and pulled the bearing org SKF 6202-RSH/C3LHT23 my bearing had SKF 6202- 2RSJEM in stock which is the same but with a different lube. cost in 2008 $ 9.25 .Well I can handle the motor but can not remember exactly how to open the machine all I am positive about is you don't even have to moove the machines position or the duct work, I was impressed.
Please ,please can someone refresh my memory on this simple but a little risky to attempt without guideance.
Oh by the way I am a gentleman of 70 years of age and only do three light loads per week and I sleep on a single bed. I was the full size bed every three months or so to keep it fresh unless I have company.
DADOED I want to add that I enjoy reading you posts because I am a doityourselfer , I think the idea of hidden fasteners is so elegant but if you pry on the wrong thing can be expensive.
Thanks to all that contribute to these forums David
