Question about Inglis 6.5 Cu Ft Super Capacity Gas Dryer
This inglis gas dryer is from 1993 (Model #IA72100)... I hope to repair this myself. No problem with coil valve or heating. All vents and areas internally are lint free. A part of a jacket caught in the drum's crease and pulled out the felt ring around the dryer. I replaced it. But then the dryer had developed a grinding noise under heavier loads such as jeans or towels. I continued to use the dryer for months with regular weighted loads. Now I hear a low humming noise when pressing the start button, (like a distant jet engine warming up) the drum begins to turn but shuts off in 1-3 turns, it will start again but only if start button is held down. Drum is stiff and hard to turn by hand. The belt seems fine? What other steps could I make to elimate the problem? I hold a grudge againgst the last serviceman that charged me full price after I assisted him thoughout the removal and return of the drum... and provided him with 3 much needed glasses of icewater on a hot summer's day. Perhaps it was the toy rubber garter snake that startled him out of the basement that detered him from giving me a fair price!!! I'd like to tackle the current problems on my own if I can get a few suggestions...
Is it possible to check the bearing or oil the centre of rotation?

Testimonial: "I've oiled the shaft to the drive motor which moves more freely now but the slow, load grinding noise is worse... it sounds like it's coming from the blower wheel area but everything seeems to be clear there? Perhaps it's the best place to start replacing parts!"
