It runs fine and there is no noise when there is no weight in the drum... wet clothes. Once I put more than a few items of clothing the drum just doesn't rotate but no noise.

I replaced both drum rollers because they were really stiff. Replaced the belt because there was a slight tear in it. Replaced the front felt seal because it was chewed up in one section.

Dryer runs great and quiet with nothing it is. Drum will not move at all once I add the weight of wet clothes. Any ideas??

oops . I meant runs great when there is nothing in it

The motor and blower are moving freely and together so I don't think that's the problem. The pulley mechanism also looks good and moves freely. The rollers seem a bit stiff and the felt seal on the inside of bulkhead was chewed to bits. Glides look a bit worn.

OK. I've taken the front panel and bulkhead off. The felt around the top inside of the bulkhead is all chewed up. The glides show some wear. Should they?

How would I recognize if the blower has stripped off from the motor shaft?
