Drum Loose on Kenmore 70 electric dryer

My dryer was giving a buzzing noise and cutting off mid cycle. Following instructions from this forum (which were excellent by the way), I disassembled, cleaned the motor endbells, realigned the tensioner, and reassembled the dryer.

Everything seemed fine, but now it seems that the drum will come "off track" when I turn it manually from inside. The dryer will run fine.

I've double checked and everything seems to be reassembled correctly. But I'm pretty sure the drum shouldn't come "off track" like this.

What have I missed?

Kenmore 70 Series Electric Dryer will not start


It sounds like the hi-limit thermostate and/or the thermal cut-off is what is causing your dryer to shut down. Basically it's over heating. You should replace these two items togeather. Also the thermal cut-off will be triggered by a grounded out heating element. Here is a diagram of where these items are located. hope this helps

Whirlpool Supreme Dryer rumbles while turned on then stops mid cycle. When I push the start button I hear a buzzing noise, then a click and then silence. After the dryer sits for a while, it will start...


Chances are it's the drive that drives the belt around the drum, or the motor is on its way out. Have a technician inspect the belt/belt drive system as well as the motor.

Signal


Kenmore 70 series. Model/Stock 66702692 Serial MG2402832

Cycle Signal works but then won't shut off until I open up the dryer door - it just keeps buzzing for hours. Also the dryer will turn on if I close the door ( and arrow is within a number and not on off) without pressing the start button. So if door is closed - the dryer will run or buzz (depending on arrow). How do I fix this?

Thank you
