  • Information for swapping away my fuel dryer myself

    Раздел: XCheaters mobile Просмотров: Комментрариев: 0 Дата: 30 Март, 2021 в 9:09

    My (instead old) washer blew through to me a few weeks hence (evidently this has been unbalanced for some time. Was included with the accepted spot and I never thought an excessive amount of the vibration until it absolutely was far too late.) and am getting a brandname new set delivered back at my brand new set (Washer HERE, GAS Dryer HERE) from Sears on Thursday.

    They desired about $80 plus parts to install them (I forget I declined having just disconnected everything myself, I figured it would be easy enough to set up the new ones if it was each or for both) and. I am maybe not especially handy but I am at about replace-my-own-ceiling-fan, remove-and-reinstall-my-own-garbage-disposal level.

    I am maybe perhaps not overly worried about the washer, but I became reviewing the manual for the dryer on the internet and it’s me only a little nervous. It discusses the need to purge the fuel type of air twice, utilizing teflon tape (i did not see any proof of that from the old install), etc.

    Therefore I wanted to pose the question- is it something which somebody inside my degree are capable of myself or is there enough gotchas that i ought to cough up the cash?

    EDIT: I succeeded today thanks in big part to your solution here- many thanks.

    I finished up buying ‘yellow’ gas-approved teflon tape and a brand new versatile gasoline line (become safe. It absolutely was $30 though!). And a dryer that is new hose (also pricey) since evidently we required a steel one as well as the existing one had been foil.

    It had been about as simple as We hoped.

    1. I connected the (new) exhaust vent hose utilizing the force coupling bands ( not certain the most suitable term) that came with it on both sides- wall surface and appliance. The manual demanded to not make use of a foil vent, therefore a metal was used by me one. (regrettably, the essential versatile steel one I found pushes the dryer away too much through the wall for my requirements- i can not shut the entranceway to my washing case now. Topic of another post i assume. I will take to a «periscope» dryer vent.)
    2. I connected the gas that is new into the valve in the wall surface, employing a layer of yellow teflon tape on the threads (even though Home Depot man did actually think I would just want it in the appliance side)
    3. We connected one of several couplings that are removable the fuel line into the straight straight back associated with dryer (again, utilized tape and even though maybe not necessary)
    4. Switched on the fuel for the brief minute to purge the line
    5. Loosely threaded the gas line into this coupling, additionally utilizing tape as suggested; naviidte to the site purged once more
    6. Tightened with a (newly bought) pipeline wrench.
    7. Switched on the fuel and listened & smelled for fuel at both connections — quiet and odorless :)

    Took possibly half an hour, almost all of that time was spent wrestling the stress couplings and hoping to get the threads to take- ended up being wanting to be extremely mild.

    Dryer began right up no issues also it (and now we!) survived two test lots.

    Therefore, went well, i came across it not too difficult and would repeat. Thank you for helping me build my skillset!

    (Including the requested photo right here even though it’s a little belated. Note on/around the valve so you can’t see it, but it’s there that I covered the hard-gas-line’s opening with painter’s tape and stuck it. Wished to protect it from most of the dust and lint going swimming down there.)
