The drum on my Whirlpool LER3624JQ1 dryer stopped spinning, which is the first issue I’ve had in 16 years!
After turning the dryer off, I could hear the motor spin down, so I suspected there was an issue with the belt. The drum would easily spin by hand, which usually means the belt broke. It was really easy to get inside the unit by following some simple steps I found on repairclinic.com. Sure enough, the belt had snapped.
I picked up a new 92-1/4 inch belt for $8 at Lowes and I was back in business.
I love the feeling of fixing something on my own. Like my mom said, maybe I can get another 16 years out of it.
