The dryer drum is making a noise like it's loaded with bricks
I took perfectly working dryer from shed, and put it back in garage to use. Plugged it in and started it. Forgot to check inside dryer for empty jaegermeister bottles and crown royal bottles. After removing broken glass and still intact bottles, when running dryer it sounds like the drum is out of kilter or off balance or something. I removed the back panel to expose the drum but it exposed nothing. Do i need to get to the drum through the front and top of dryer! If so, how do i go about it.

I surely do hope this fixes it all. The pulley that fell apart is supposed to. Well, not quite. It is not fastened inside the machine, and comes off easily. It is the belt tensioner. It fits into 2 slots on the bottom steel panel of the machine (The base) You will be finding it is a pain in the neck to put back on, but you can do so. The belt goes with the grooves toward the drum, not away from it. The belt goes in a S shape around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley. One you put the tensioner back in it's place nin the two slots, you will push (or pull) on it against the spring arm to "bend" it so as to get the belt back on. Be blessed.
try and turn the drum by hand at the same time you are trying to start the dryer if it runs then you have a problem with you motor it may be dirty with lint and needs to be cleaned or the start windings have gone bad and needs to be replaced
when you pulled the drum on this dryer, everything has to go back exzactly as it came out, make sue you set the drum back rt and did not leave any screws out, and or the bracing not right if you changed the belts it will probally be the way you put it back the drum check your work youll find it
It Is fixable.All you need to is try to balance the load or a perfect concrete flat surface for the machine. If
the problem still persists, then during the previous vibrations, the
shocks or the drum bearings might have been damaged, you might have well replace them to
avoid further problems.good luck.and please post your comments.
