This dryer was just moved from one garage where it was in storage to my basement. Dryer runs fine but the drum is difficult to turn and seems to be "off" a bit if I take my hand and push down and back a bit on the drum it becomes centered in back. could something have come loose during moving and where do I begin to fix this thing.... Thanks Bruce

Re: kenmore gas dryer 110.76662501
There are several possibilities. Your dryer drum may be off track with the rear drum support rollers. There is a groove that runs along the circumference of the drum that the rollers are supposed to ride it. Or, you may have roller that is binding up and not rolling freely. Lint can accumulate on them and causes them to stick. If you haven't cleaned the dryer interior lately, or lubricated the rollers, it may be time to do so. You could also have a rear drum seal that is worn and may be causing the drum not to stay seated properly. Please let me know if you have checked any of these possibilites. I can provide you instructions on how to replace any parts, if necessary.

the motor is cooked,i live in the boston area and we had some bad floods a few months ago,all i did for two weeks was change out dryer motors,you can try to spin the drum and hold in the door switch and have someone else hold in the start button to see if it will start but you have to change out the dryer or get a new one if it's in rough shape
I have a gas kenmore dryer... the drum runs- it blows air and for just a few minutes warm air but after a few minutes the air is cold. I have cleaned the vent checked it good. I didn't see the fuse on the back I have the bottom latch open and see several wires that can be disconnected; snap together.
I opened up the lower panel of my kenmore 90 and then removed the blower cover. I found two hair pins lodged in the blower and removed them. I tested the dryer with it open and the blower and drum began to turn again. I buttoned everything back up, and it is running fine now.
The bearings in the motor have probably worn out. Disconnect the motor and take it out of the dryer. See if it turns roughly or not at all by hand. Also try and move the post left to right and up and down and see if there is play in it. It should move very little if at all in those directions and should spin freely if it's good.
