Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Husband took off top and front - took out drum - motor is still making awful rattling noise. He thinks the shaft where the belt attaches looks wobbly - could that be a bearing going out?
It could be a worn motor bearing, but they usually last for 20 years, i would guess that you have a worn drum roller, the thing that holds up the drum and looks like a wheel.
if your sure the motor has a worn bearing then replacing the motor is not easy as you have to unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft.
it also may be that you are talking about the idler pulley being worn. it is the device that holds tension against the belt and they also will wear out and be "wobbly"
