Question about Dryers
When I start my dryer it makes a loud noise and the will run (still making the noise) after a while the noise will get louder and the unit will shut down. If I wait a few minutes I can start it again with the same results.. The unit also has a burning electrical smell. It is strongest in the back right corner. I did all the basic lint cleaning stuff. any ideas? is it the motor?
It is most likely the belt. the squealing noise is because the motor is turning, but the belt is not. a replacement belt is not too expensive and it is fairly easy to replace. if you need directions how to replace it, let me know
