Hi g2n3ochaos

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

My kenmore electric dryer turns on and heats but the drum doesn't turn?


that would be a broken belt, or the motor, I say belt. You will need to open the top of the dryer and look in the middle of the drum for a belt, which is not there I am sure, here are some websites,Tim:

Belt repalcement proceedure


Pop the top, (use a screw driver) remove the front ... remove the drum ... clean the interior ... notice how the tensioner pulley works as you disassemble the machine. It does hook into the slots on the floor and the new belt will pull through the teensioner and around the motor pulley.

I have a Kenmore Dryer whick squeals, especially upon startup. I have the parts kit 4392065 from a neighbor who had the same problem with his dryer, but I have no instructions or schematics. I am looking...


remove 2 screws at filter. use a screw driver and pop hood from front. remove 2 screws at top front on inside and remove front of dryer. roller wheels are easy to repalce. place belt around drum. idler pully fits in slot just beloew moter pully. check its position while you have drum out, that way you know where it goes or you can actually put it in tis place bfore installing drum. helpful hint, after putting drum in place, reach your hand back to the right side roller wheel and pull it slightly forward. last put the belt on the idler pulley. go over the top of the pulley from right to left and then under and around motor pulley. it will only go on one way , the other will be obviously wrong. good luck.

My Dryer Starts, then stops as soon as I release the button.


Its possible the dryer heat selector is at fault. If the timer inside does not move to the end of the heat cycle you may have further problems. Depending on how old the dryer and how long it has taken to dry garments, you may want to check that the motor has not gone bad causing an electrical overload. Faulty timers will cause extended drying times eventually putting a strain on the motor's bearings and electrical windings. You may want to get a replacement or get a repair estimate to repalce the belt, motor, drum rollers and heating coil components.
