The bearings in the motor have probably worn out. Disconnect the motor and take it out of the dryer. See if it turns roughly or not at all by hand. Also try and move the post left to right and up and down and see if there is play in it. It should move very little if at all in those directions and should spin freely if it's good.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer Belt Keeps Breaking


A few things to check. Make sure that the idler pulley is turning freely without any signs of distress from the bearings. Make sure that when the belt is installed that all drum, motor and pulleys are perfectly in line. Even a small amount of misalignment will cause premature failure. Turn the drum by hand and make sure is turns fairly freely. There will be some drag from the drum supports, but it should turn readily with one hand, if it is any stiffer then the drum supports may be badly worn and will need to be replaced. Make sure that the pulleys on the motor and idler are in good condition and not damaging the belt. There are basically only three main reason for a premature failure, misalignment, pulley damage and overloading. It has to be pone of those.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

My kenmore 70 series dryer won't run. when I push the button, it makes a sound [like it did when it would run], but the dryer doesn't catch or start running...it seems like it is trying to, but it won't...


Reach in and turn the drum. It should be very easy to turn. If it is hard to turn you need to determine if it is :
The rollers 1a29d3b.gif
The idler 181f336.jpg
If you have this crappy idler db00084.jpgchunk it in favor of the one above with a wheel. The glide band and feltd4503ef.jpg
The motor.e526c9d.jpg I have a manual

My dryer has a high pitch squeal when starting up. It would go away after a few minutes when it warmed up but now the squeal is getting worse and lasting longer


Kevlar 'slip strip' on which the front of the drum runs may need to be replaced. Try turning drum gently by hand to guage whether or not it is turning freely.

Past few days, dryer got very noisy. Then drum


The noise is coming from a moving part. There are only a few that normally cause a problem. Also the dryer drum not turning freely is what broke your belt. Here is what I would replace. Drum rollers, Drum slides and idler pulley. You can check these parts before you replace them. If the drum rollers don't spin real easy, replace. If the idler pulley does not turn easy, replace. If the drum slides are worn, replace. Your model may be one with a front drum bearing. If it looks worn, replace.
You may be able to take dryer apart, try turning drum. Listen for the noise and notice if the drum is hard to turn. If so, you may be able to determine if the problem is in the front or back of drum. Keep on mind that the noise might have been the belt slipping due to the drum being hard to turn. Either way, when you have it repaired, it should run with the noise. Good luck.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
