My whirlpool thin twin ltg6234dq0 dryer does not start it makes a motor hum then shuts down. I opened it up and cleaned it out it was full of lint. I then sprayed some lubricant all around it and it started working again then i heard something sort of shoot out maybe a bearing then it worked again for a few loads now it keeps getting stuck. Is it the motor weakening or some kind of bearings that are warn? If I help it again it will probably start temporarily again. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Is there noise coming from the blower area? If so, see if the noise goes away when you push up slightly on the base where the idler pulley is screwed in. Check to see if the blower wheel is rubbing against the back of the housing.

Also check the motor mounts. The motor may be flexing the base while it runs making the blower wheel rub against it.

Could make a video of it running, upload to youtube then post then link here-- we could probably tell by listening.

If all that checks out, then you may just just have a bad motor. Part Link ==> Motor
