When the dryer is turned on and has run for a short time you can start to smell a rubber smell. I was wondering if the belt is in need of replacement.
ANSWER Hello Charlene,
When the belt starts slipping it is because something in the unit is opposing the turning of the drum. This is either the idler pulley WE12X83, the rear bearing kit WE25M40, or the front slides WE1M504 two of these, and WE1M1067 two of these. The front drum bearing support WE3M26 may require replacement if the clips that hold the slides in place are worn off. The belt WE12M29 will only require replacement if the unit is run too long with the opposition to the drum rotation occurring. As a note. the two green slides go to the middle and the white ones go on either side of the two green ones.
These part numbers are for model number DCXR463GA1WW. The model number you had listed came up as invalid.
