Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
If your clothes dryer has any sort of uncommon noises coming from it they are fairly easy to repair. The drum turns with the help of a belt with a belt tensioner. The tensioner keeps the belt tight. The tensioner also has a roller with a bearing. If the bearing goes dry it will squeak. If the bearing locks up the belt will burn and you will smell burning rubber. Eventually the belt will break off. The roller can be ordered from most companies with the belt. It is advisable to replace the drums front seal that rides along the front panel. These will wear and squeak too in time. To service these parts the front panel must be removed to gain access. All parts are fairly easy to repplace with someone helping you to hold the drum up when re assembly come up. You can also ask me more questions if needed.
