Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
The problem sounds like the drum wheels. Your drum sits atop wheels that support it and help it turn. As these age they will loose their grease or lint will build up on them. The result is a horrible grinding noise that gets louder and louder. It is a cheap repair but it is a pain to do. You will need to remove the drum and belt in order to get the wheels off. The wheels are held up by a simple pin. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.
