I'm getting a burning smell coming from the dyer. Would that be the dryer belt going bad?
ANSWER Wayne, Yes, a worn out drive belt could produce a burn odor, but that's not too common. You're going to need to remove the front panel and the drum, vacuum out any accumulated lint, dust and debris, then check, clean, and lube the front drum glide WE03X10007 and rear drum bearing, to remove any excess "drag" on the drive system, and replace the drive belt WE12X10009.
