Question about Dryers
Hello gary. If the bearings in the pulley are worn, this will cause too much tension for the motor to turn the drum. Lint builds up between the shaft and the wheel and takes away the grease. After the pulley runs for a while without the grease it can start to squeak. That's usually when belts start breaking. Replacing the pulley will take care of this.
I repair lots of dryers and I make it a standing practice to replace the idler pulley along with the belt. This saves me lots of return trips. Joe
