Question about Dryers
My dryer was making a loud squeaking sound and now the drum doesn't turn and it is still making that squeaking sound. What parts are likely damaged and should be replaced (so I can order them and fix it)? Thank you for the help.
The problem is most likely your drum belt. Most run all the way around the outside of the drum, across a tensioner pulley, and around the motor.
This could be easy, or it could be a nightmare. Disassembly of the outer cabinet can be tricky. Some drums ride on pullies, while others slide on drum felts.
Your local appliance parts store can give you some guidance, and probably a few cards of qualified service guys. If you're mechanically inclined, and have a history of being able to take machines apart, AND reassemble without extra parts laying around, then give it a shoy. Otherwise, pay a pro, and save your Saturday.
