I have just replaced the drum belt on the above F&P dryer. The dryer now sounds like it is rubbing/grinding. When I move the drum by hand it can be heard too.
When I pulled the machine apart, the front bearings (6) look a little worn, but not too bad.
On the ground I was able to house the drum so it was not rubbing, but when I carried it inside it was rubbing again. It appears worse when the drum goes counter clockwise.
Can anyone please confirm if I need to replace the front bearings - part number 460286P? Or could anything else cause it to grind?
