Dryer squeeks. Is there a repair kit to get or just the belt?
Answer Hello Curt! Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not offer a repair kit for your model MDE5500AYW. If a repair kit were offered the kit would usually consist of the belt part number 33002535, roller part number 12001541 and belt tension pulley part number 6-3700340. I'd also check the tumber bearings 306508. Hope this helps, thanks!
We are replacing the dryer drum belt, also drum support rollers and tumbler bearing kit, do we also need the drum roller axle?
Answer Debbie, As long as there are no major wear marks or scratches, on the axles 6-3129480, you can usually clean the axle and "buff" them with emory cloth. Then lube the shafts and roller bearing (center opening) 12001541 with a couple of drops of turbine oil TJ93240. You'll also want to repeat the procedure on the idler pulley assembly 6-3037050.
