WHEN CAROUSEL TURNS, IT TURNS JERKY


I think I can tell you why, but there may be no good fix.
The carousel is turned by a motor inside the right side of the machine, and that motor is hidden.
It often turns a wheel, and on the wheel is a rubber /plastic belt, that turns a wheel on the bottom of the plastic spider that holds your glass plate.
The belt gets worn out or old, and slips.
I seriously doubt you can get a replacement belt, unless you have ready access to a large assortment of various sizes of o-rings.
Then, you will need someone to replace it.
Many of these machines are really not repairable.
God bless your efforts.

When the dryer tumbles, it makes a loud noise. What could it be? How do I fix it?


Go to Sears and purchase a new belt & idler pulley wheel for yours. The bearing in the pulley has dried up bearing causing this noise. The belt will be stretched and replacing it the same time will save a future headache

Drum does not turn but does heat up


Usually this means the belt is broken,the belt may have just been old and worn out and it was time to replace it,or perhaps the wheels locked up or the idler and caused the belt to break. Look around for stiff wheels, bad bearings, glides and idlers. Its a good idea to oil the rollers with some temp resistant oil such as zoom oil. Dont use WD40 as this stuff is highly flammable and may cause a fire.

When it is cold or wet, I get a loud squealing noise from under the hood when I first turn the steering wheel. It doesn't matter if it is right or left. It does not happen in warm or dry weather.


HI, this is the result of a worn power steering belt. in this case, the pulley may be worn or, the entire serpentine belt may be worn altogether. have the power steering pump inspected for pulley and gear damage. inspect the serpentine belt for worn sections as well.

Most common issue will be a worn drive belt(serpentine)

Change the belt and check all of the bearings for play. If any have too much slack replace them.

If your dryer is noisy, check these: Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

THE BELT DRIVE HAS WORN INTO THE PLASTIC CASE TO THE POINT THAT IT RUBBED ON THE IMPELLER AND BROKE IT , WHAT CAN BE DONE TO REPAIR THIS


You would have to replace the bad parts along with the belt. But you did not give brand and model number info, so can't help more with that info.
