My dryer is making a terrible thumping noise. Prior to this, the kids complained about a high pitched squeak while it was running. Do I need to replace the rollers? Should I also replace the belt and pulley assembly while I'm at it? Is this something a guy with a modest amount of mechanical ability can handle?
ANSWER Hi Charlie, it could be that your rollers 4581EL2002C have failed. You have 2 in the front and 2 in back on your model. Check your drum seal 4036EL3001A and it's always a good idea to check your belt 4400EL2001A, idler pulley 4561EL3002A, and blower wheel 5835EL1002A while your in there. Most of those parts are inexpensive and can save you from having to go into it again for a similar repair. It's not a tough repair job and if you look at the diagrams on our website, they may help you figure it out as you go along. By the way, it's also a good time to look at your lint screen 5231EL1003B to see if it needs replacing and take advantage of our flat rate shipping. Hope this helps!
