I had a service call on the dryer last evening, the belt came off the motor drive pulley.

 

The dryer is a copy of a FD dryer with the center rear drum bearing. The machine is much larger in capacity than a FD. 

 

Overall it is a cheap copy of a crappy FD dryer to start with, the tenant said this is the 3rd problem in the 3 years they have lived there, He said the matching washer has worked fine.

 

I would guess that these are 5-6 years old.

I remembered we had a thread about these. It appears that was already in 2012!

www.automaticwasher.org/c...

IIRC these were available with a pulsator or an agitator. What did that washer have?

Only Haier set I recall seeing in a residence was in 2011 when we fetched the Whirlpool Catalyst set.  They had replaced the WPs with a Haier pair.

Haier W&D

Thanks for the link Louis 

 

The dryer is diffidently a copy of a FD but is diffidently not built by FD, not one part is interchangeable with FD dryer parts [ except maybe a few screws, LOL ]

 

The washer looks like they borrowed a few things from F&P but again is very different, the washer does not have a lid lock and has a tub brake.

Actually I have seen a set like these at our local Ollies closeout store a few years ago.

Haier is notorious for copying other companies designs.
I had a Haier dishwasher in a college apt.
It was a horrible Frankenstein of GE and WP copies.
Copied WP upper rack, GE lower rack. WP thunderbolt arm with a GE wash tower.
The copied wash arm had the jets so aggressively angled (vs the subtle angling of the true WP thunderbolt arm) that it did a horrible wash job on the lower rack.
It had a crude copy of the GE hrz pump…. Oddly enough with a real, Siemens GE motor….

I guess it’s fitting they bought GE. They don’t have to copy anymore. They have all the IP.

The washer is junk

I had the washer. I bought it from a local overstock place. The tub drain pump is poorly designed and I had to replace it twice and it would have been a 3rd time but I scrapped it. Lucky I only paid $200 for the machine. I mean it cleaned decently enough but for as nice as outward appearances are (stainless tub) it was so cheaply designed. I still am unsure if I got my true money’s worth out of it at $200. I had it 3 or 4 years.
