I cleaned the rather large amount of lint that was located at the back of my dryer drum and also had accumulated around the drum roller. Screwed the large back panel back in place and started the load only to hear the clicking noise! Now however the clicking stops after the dryer has been on about 20 minutes.

It seems to dry well, but am somewhat worried about the clicking. Could it be the belt is going? The pulley? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am determined to do this myself.

Thanks

If you had the drum out of the rear sleeve bearing, did you replace the shaft spacer ?
See the destructions that were sent - try and narrow down where the sound is from, as the blower could be making noise etc.

No, I didn't replace anything, just removed about 2 socks worth of lint! I am a definite apprentice and will go back "in" my dryer this weekend. I feel much more confident however, due to the advice, posts I have read, and the instructions sent to me.

I will positively order from the repairclinic.com once I figure where the clicking is coming from....will update.
Thanks.
