Question about Dryers
There is a squeeking noise coming from my dryer it is not a constant noise. I think i just need to lub the gears and pulleys but cant find access.
You have a whirlpool made kenmore dryer , there are 3 moving parts that can be making this noise , the belt tensioner and 2 wheels that the drum rolls on .
to get to these parts you go into the front of the unit. start by removing the 2 screws on the top where the lint screen inserts. then get a flat screwdriver to pry the top of the dryer away from the door panel it should have clips holding it down on both sides of the front.
after that you can see the drum with the top open like a hood of a car , look inside there are 2 screws holding each corner of the front of the dryer , they are 5/16 hex heads , remove these screws and the entire front door panel will come loose , pull the panel upward to release the lower clips holding it.
Now that this panel is removed look under the drum to see how the belt is held so you can put it back correctly , after removing the belt pull the dr om out and you will see the wheels , you can use motor oil to oil the center of the wheels and the belt tensioner. to get the drum back in set it on the wheels and roll it untill it falls into place and reassemble the rest if you have any other questions let me know and tell me how it works out.
