Default Re: whine/groan from new AC Compressor

I thought it was customary to replace the receiver drier / accumulator when installing a new compressor- in an AC system? I've seen no mention of it being replaced...

Since it's there to pull any moisture out,, and the system was open/leaking prior to, wouldn't it be a good assumption that it's not "dry" anymore and would risk contaminating the new refurbished AC system with moisture?
