Kenmore Dryer Debris?
Posted 02 June 2005 - 05:38 PM
Well, I found this site and in 10 minutes had the "top popped", the drum out, and a broken belt in my had grinning like a possum eatin briars at my wife as if I knew what I was doing. heh
My question is, when I removed the drum with my expert hands :) I noticed a lot of black, greasy lint right under the pulley where the idler pulley was (in the center). The idler pulley had fallen off, but my wife said it was "making a racket" just before it quit.
When I spin the motor, it is not quiet. It turns easily and it is not a loud grind, but rather a slight hiss when it turns. I
I have ordered a new belt and idler pulley, but I would appreciate any guesses on the source of this black lint? It did not smell burned, and it was spread consistent with the spinning of the main shaft at the pulley.
Thanks all in advance.
