Question about Kenmore 72982 Gas Dryer
Dryer runs for a few minutes squeals a little and cuts off. The drum turns freely, the idler and belt look ok and the venting is clear.
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.
