Question about Dryers
Of clothing and turning back on. I basically took it apart and removed all lint even around the motor. It will run for about 2-3 minutes then quit again and will not restart untill it has sat for a little while. Also it now squeaks loudly when first starting back up. Please help.
This puppy needs help. You're going to have to take it all apart. Check all roller wheels, find heat resistant grease. Maybe graphite will do. With the belt off, spin the motor by hand, it should roll freely. If not, first feel for worn bearings by trying to move the motor shaft up and down. I've never lubed a dryer motor. Replace it if you can! These motors are very generic, keep your eyes open for replacements by the road if that's your thing. Sure works for me. When re-assembling check the front sliders for damage or misplaced felt, if your unit doesn't have wheels there. The drum should not rub stuff it's not supposed to. Make sure you are putting the belt on right. And of course check the fan area for loose stuff.
