Question about Whirlpool LEQ9858P Electric Dryer
Whirlpool model LEP 6848AW0 electric dryer, hear humming, heats up, doesn't tumble, was told it was the belt and was told its difficult to get to, was told entire drum had to be removed to check out the belt. Need to know if i'm getting ripped off or can I do this myself.
It is not hard to do at all. Start by yanking out the filter. Then remove those 2 phillips scews that hold down the top at the filter housing. Next use a putty knife to pop the top by pressing against the spring clips that hold the top down to the front. Next remove the 2 screws holding the front on. Raise up on the front to release the front from the case without breaking the el cheapo retainers. Once you have the front out your way get the drum out. Oil the wheels and idler using a high temp resistant quality turbine oil. Zoom spout oil is cheap and easy to find at any ace hardware. Rout the idler as pictured HERE using the whirlpool/kenmore pic. Piece of cake!

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...
