Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
Started by replacing dryer belt. the drum turns but dryer only runs while i hold start button. there had been a sqeaking before but now it has become a squealing and scratching.
Sounds like two problems.
First, the screeching noises are probably from your belt tensioner wearing out and needing replacement. Or the belt is not properly seated on the tensioner and needs readjustment. No biggie there.
If you have to keep the start button pressed for the dryer to keep spinning, you may have bad centrifugal switch. That switch is built into your dryer motor. Therefore, the motor will have to be replaced... BIGGIE!
