The top of the drum is trapping items between the drum and frame, causing the items to remain snagged as the drum continues to turn, usually just twisting and leaving marks, but also tearing some holes in clothes.What to do?
For model number DCVH515EF0WW
PartSelect logo
Hello Brian, Thank you for your inquiry. We have researched your model and recommend the following parts to fix your issue: top bearing, the dryer drum glides, the drum seal felt seal and the duct trap assembly. Also check the belt to make sure the drum is rotating properly and not out of place. Hope this helps.

Dryer will turn on and run a few minutes and shut off. Have to unplug and wait a few minutes and it will turn back on and run a few minutes and shut off again. It does this in all modes (at least the few i tried)
For model number DCVH515EF0WW

Hello Linda, thank you for writing. There are a few options with this issue. First, please take off the back of the dryer and thoroughly vacuum the inside and inside the vent tubing. Second, it may be a faulty Door Latch PartSelect Number PS3502777 or Door Switch PartSelect Number PS2344321 that the motion of the laundry is popping the door open. If the Moisture Sensor PartSelect Number PS1021860 is defective or dirty, it may fail to detect moisture and inadvertently tell the dryer to shut off when the laundry is still wet. Good luck with your repair.

Hi Chris, thank you for the question. The interlock switch, part number PS1481922, is located down on the motor. When you look at your model diagrams on our site, it is underneath the blower and motor diagram. We hope this is helpful!

Due to over loading of the dryer the drum ruined the slides and was making a bad noise due to plastic rubbing plastic
It was pretty easy. After already taking apart the dryer to install a new belt I knew exactly my plan of action. I removed the two screws that hold the top panel of the dryer to the front panel. I then removed the top panel and removed the screws that hold the front to each side panel. I than pulled the front away from the cabinet and drum. I put the new slides in place and installed a new felt strip. I put it back together and that was that. Very easy.

Heater element went out
First of all, unplug the dryer. I removed the two screws on the front of the cabinet to remove the top. I then took out the screws to remove the dial panel. Release the belt for the drum through the access hole in the rear of the dryer. Remove the front cover and pull the drum assembly out.

Remove the element disc from the rear of the housing, take note of the the wireing placement. Replace disc and reverse order of disassembly.

This job was easy for me as I am a tinkerer by nature. The hardest part of the whole job was waiting on the part, which by the way was ordered on a Sunday evening and I had the replacement in my hands and back in the dryer running by 1:00 PM on the following Tuesday!

I book marked this website and WILL refer it to others who simply need a repair, not a costly new appliance!
