Question about Kenmore 62872 Electric Dryer
Yes there is you'll have to get high temp lubricant or grease. Here is how to get to it. first check this site out to help you see and recognize the parts www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-41780042990-%3d%3d&z=100 Check out items 1851 and 774936. This is were you need to get to. First remove small access panel on rear after unplugging from power source of course. Reach in and undo belt. Then look at the very bottom of your front panel if you see two screws lay the dryer down on it's back and remove the screws. Lift the bottom a bit to see door switch wires undo them and remove front panel it will hook in at the top under the main top. Then unscrew the 3 screws inside the drum in the middle and pull drum out. note the 2 items I have given you item 1851 slides out of the cup(774936) apply high temp grease and replace item 1851 and put it back together. If you don't have the 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel for removing then the other way to open it is by prying the main top up with a wide flat screw driver toward edges between main top and front panel then removing 2 screws on the inside of the front panel toward top then unhooking at bottom. To facilitate belt replacement I use small scotch tape pieces to tape the belt to the drum so that when you have it back together and you re-stand the dryer you can reach in from the rear access panel to re-attach belt to motor and tensioner. If this scares you too much you may call me and i would be glad to walk you through it. My name is James 417-926-0106. I hope these directions help and you have a successful fix. This type of problem is very simple. Do not forget to re-connect your door switch wires or it won't run at all. Good Luck

Look at back and get model number and search google how to replace bearing. Go to utube and search replace dryer bearings on different models. Very easy to take apart, if you use dolly and cart it into a large room. Anyways, take apart and GREASE bearing. Use high temp grease if you can, maybe the car break grease would be acceptable, small pack very cheap. Should not need to replace bearing but if you do, order part online, not much $$. Ask your neighbor to do this for you, if you can not. Not need a special repair person for this task, beleive me.
