Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
Don't oil anything...it makes a mess and if you get it on the belt you'll be replacing it and doing a lot of cleanup.
Replace the idler pulley and drum support rollers. This will likely stop the squeaking.
Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.
Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.
Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16” hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior.
Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing drum. Draw a diagram of its travel. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor on the gas valve or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle. After drum removal you will see the two drum roller attached to the rear wall. Replace them along with the idler pulley for the belt.
Grasp front edge of dryer drum and rotate counterclockwise slowly to align idler and motor pulley and to remove any twists in the belt.
Check the rear seal of the dryer drum to be sure it's flat and not curled under. Use your fingers to uncurl it all the way around.
Reverse process to re-assemble.
Motor and idler pulley for dyer will be on right. Gas components will be on left
