Question about Whirlpool Dryers
To open the dryer, remove screws under the lint filter door/ handle. Pull top towards you and lift on front, top should pop up and rotate back. There will be two sheet metal screws one on either side of the front door panel, remove them and pull front out and clear of the drum, an extra hand can really help with this. Lift on t he door panel and either disconnect the door switch connector or just turn it out of the way. Look under the drum, if the idler pulley does not have a roller on it, you should replace it. If it does have a roller, check for signs of wear and seizing, only then should that one be replaced. While you're in there it is always a good idea to clean out the lint and check the drum rollers. When putting back together, the drum may cause a problem seating on the front door seal. you may need to rotate the drum back and forth to work it into position.
