My Repair & Advice
My 25 or 30 year old dryer was still making heat, and noise, but wasn't spinning, so I figured it was the belt, but never realized that the belt wrapped around the entire basin, like old-school engineering style. I was able to take it apart in a matter of minutes, being my first time doing repairs to a home appliance, but putting it back together was another story. I had to get a friend to help, use clay to hold some things in place, and use a creative method of getting the parts back together with long retainer bolts as guidance, while also finding the correct 3 screw-holes that hold the basin to the back of the dryer, using blind luck.
My dryer was older than ANY of the videos found on Youtube by at least 5 or 10 years, so I had to be creative and would not recommend doing the job alone unless you are comfortable repairing appliances.
