Question about Kenmore 62872 Electric Dryer
First off, let me say that I have no idea if my dryer is the one indicated - I just had to choose something to get this posted. Its a Kenmore 90 plus series electric dryer. Push button to start on the right.
Threw a load in the dryer and heard loud screaching noises - sounded like a belt or something. It kept drying clothes, so I kept it going. As the cycle went on, the sound lessened and stopped.
I did about 4 loads with the same scenario.
Then, I put in a 5th load and there was a loud screach/pop upon pushing the start button - but it worked - in the same manner as above. I think it may have stopped in the middle of the load though, (not sure) cause the blanket in there was still damp when I tried to restart the dryer. Upon attempting to restart the dryer I got the following results: when I pushed the start button, no sound, and no movement/drying - dead.
Anyone have any suggestions of what I might try to fix this?
Sounds like the belt has broken. You could probably also use new drum support rollers. Check out this site which shows how to change a dryer belt:
It's not a difficult job if you're comfortable working with hand tools.
