Kenmore dryer will not heat, will run but makes a scrubbing noise when the drum is turned. it was working great until my daughter dried a pair of tennis shoes. any help is welcome
For the issue of the scrubbing noise you will want to check the glide and rear bearing for damage. For the issue of the unit not heating you will want to check the hi limit thermostat, heater and thermal fuse for continuity. If any of the parts do not have continuity then you will need to replace that part.
I am replacing the heater in my dryer and would like to do some PM as well. I thought I saw a kit that contained the belt, rear bearing kit and felts but I have not been able to locate. Also, does this dryer have the glides?
Answer Nancy, the dryer maintenance kit used on your model LEQ332DS0 is part number 5304457724. The kit includes the rear bearing, front felt seals, belt, and idler pulley. Your unit uses the drum glide 137513300, however, it is is not included the the maintenance kit. Thanks!
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
I am trying to replace the dryer drum glides, and it appears that some of the clips on the back of the glides "lock-in' nicely to the drum, however the ones at the beginning and end of the glides, seem to fit very loosely in the holes. Is it supposed to be this way? I am concerned that the loose fit will allow the leading edge of the glide to snag the felt joints. Should all of the clips on the back of the glides "click" into place, or are some of the holes a in the drum slightly larger than the others? Thanks!
Answer Hello James,
This sounds like the glides may be malformed. I've never had this particular issue, but I would re-order the glides to make sure I was starting with good parts. If they do the same, as long as they have pressure against the inner rim of the drum, I would install them and run the dryer. If they are not "raised" from the drums' inner edge, there should be no problem.
