Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a kenmore 70 series dryer and it has been making a metal on metal sound as it turns for the past couple of days. Do I change bearings or rollers or what? It is heating up fine and was working perfectly for the past 6 years.

What's wrong with my dryer & how do I fix it? Kenmore 70 series dryer won't shut off!! It stops when the door is open but won't shut off on it's own.


If the timer just keeps going past the next off and never shuts off then it could be one of two things. First, is the heating still on when door is opened? If it is then the electric heating element is broken in half and one half is getting neutral by laying against the metal heater case which will cause this problem. (assuming a electric dryer). If not then the timer is the culprit and check fleabay for NOS.

The bearing or spindle the drum rotates on is probably bad or worn out. You can get to the back and turn it by hand and feel it when you turn it. You can tell if it is metal rubbing. If so, you can replace it.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
