My dryer stopped working. It has power, lights, etc. but won't spin. It was squealing for a while, so I assume the belt broke. It is a couple of years old and gets alot of use. Would you recommend replacing the idler and rollers as well?

Dawson for Model Number WED9200SQ0

ANSWER Hello Dawson, A belt 661570 normally won't just break. A dryer belt breaks because the drum opposes rotation and the motor slips in the belt, wearing it out. You don't have to replace all of the parts in there, but you do have to spin the wheels, (idler wheel 279640 and drum rollers W10314173), and any of them that oppose rotation have to be replaced to prevent the belt from breaking again.
