Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I changed the belt on my Whirlpool dryer, Model #LER5620KQ1 after the drum stopped turning. Now, the drum will turn when empty, but it makes an awful loud noise. If I fill it with clothes, the drum doesn't turn or barely turns, and I get a burning smell like the belt is burning up. Did I do something wrong when I changed the belt?
Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.
