Default Dryer Drum Support rollers and lubricant?
Model Number: MDE8000AYQ   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello.

I ordered 2 dryer drum support rollers and axles to replace a squeaky one (replacing everything while in there). In the Q&A part attached to the part, a technician responded to one of the questions (5th question) stating to use SBL lubricant on the roller axle (see WHIRLPOOL Drum Support Roller, part number: AP4008534). I spoke to a couple parts place locally trying to find this lubricant and they stated that they've never sold lubricant with the rollers and that the rollers don't need lubricant. I need confirmation one way or the other so that I do it right the 1st time.

Is it really necessary to use this lubricant on the roller axle or does the axle already come with some sort of lubricant on it?

Thanks...Al

In most cases, you don't need to replace the roller shafts, either. I have seen only one case in the last 5 years, where the shaft on one dryer was worn flat in a few places.

A lot of repair pros recommend using a lubricant on these; I don't use anthing that the lint will stick to. Just wipe the axles clean and you shouldn't have any problems.

Thanks for the reply. On Monday, I went inside to inspect for the squeal and found the right side roller was all rusted like. Also, I noticed the right side roller had some sort of sticky stuff on the shaft (seemed like some kind of lubricant). I cleaned both shafts and rollers and it runs well, but there's still a slight squeak every so often, so I ordered new rollers and the shaft. I don't know if the roller metal bearing is out of round or the shaft and that's why I am replacing them both since it's an inexpensive fix.

You said you don't use any lubricant that lint will stick to - which lubricant do you use?

Thanks...Al

I don't use any lubricant inside a dryer.

So I should be ok with just replacing the rollers and axles and not using any lubricant of any kind?

Thanks...Al

As long as the shafts are clean, and the rollers spin without dragging, you should be fine. If you feel you need to lubricate them, make sure you don't use any petroleum-based lubricants.

Thanks. I installed the axles and rollers and used some graphite on the axles. I don't know why I did not think of this before; used graphite for the little derby cars wheel axles to reduce friction.
