I own an oversized LG dryer. The stainless steel tub cracks on the seam.
Opening it up, it is obvious that it is a poor design and will continue to crack. Is it really that difficult to add a couple of support brackets right on the seam so when it goes over the roller it won't break? Cheap, cheap cheap. I took the original drum out and had it welded for ~$80, but it broke again next to the weld.
I am debating whether to buy a new drum for $189, fix this one again, or just get a whole new dryer.
I'm very dissapointed in the quality as the unit is not that old.
Monetary Loss: $189.
