Finished restoring the Frigidaire 1-18ís today. Dryer got new rollers. Felt seals new power cord. A huge thank you to Rich (Trainguy) for all the help today with the dryer. The washer got all cleaned out and touched up her undercarriage.
Now to find a new project.

Congratulations! How did you end up fixing the chewed up rear drum bulkhead and drum?

We actually weíre able to pull a lot of the bent metal back out and used this silly puddy stuff that turns into super hard as steel by JB weld. It made a great seal and bonded really good.
The back part had so much lint stuck inside. Iím surprised it didnít catch on fire over the years. It was fun learning about this and fixing her back up.
Iím so thankful for all the help and advise from everyone here. And Rich for spending the entire day at my house helping me with this project.
