My dryer keeps breaking the belts for no reason. I am going to take it outside and beat it with a 10 LB sledge hammer and set it on fire!

Kenmore dryers, are easy to work on, they all come apart from the front, so you dont even have to drag them out from the wall
most likely cause of no tumble is a broken belt, the belt costs $7 (or what the parts store guy thinks he can get away with) there are really only 5 belts among all the different brands and models of dryer so the parts guy will have one, even if it is labelled with a different manufacturer name it Will fit.

  • UNPLUG DRYER
  • remove lint filter
  • remove two screws in lint filter panel securing cabinet lid to filter frame
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, depress clips ~2inches in from the front corners of the lid to release cabinet lid
  • tilt lid up
  • remove 1 screw from each side 1/3 the way down
  • remove cabinet front and door
  • motor bearings tensioner are all visible

  • lift out drum forwards
  • check support rollers felts and nylon glide bearings for wear
    (worn bearing surfaces are the most common cause of belt breakage, and you dont want to do it again next month)
  • make sure tensioner is still installed in cabinet base, sometimes breaking belts pull them out
  • loop belt around drum at prior wear marks
  • reinsert drum
  • pull tensioner to end of travel against spring
  • loop belt around motor pully and tensioner
  • relax tensioner
  • rotate drum by hand to make sure belt wont jump off
reinstall cabinet front and lid in reverse order
~15 minutes, but I do 3-4 every day

It could be possibly your rear roller bearings expanding with heat causing them to not spin as freely? Im not really too sure but its an idea you dont have many moving parts on the unit. Just your idler pulley, blower wheel, and rollers. Hope this helps.
