Kenmore gas dryer 110.72942100 purchased 2001
I've heard the unit make a few squeeks and then within a few seconds watched the motor vibrate violently and stop. I have to unplug to reset the motor trip. I've watched this happen a few times.
Before this, the unit wouldn't even run. I placed a load in the dryer and in hummed like the motor was trying to run and then clicked off (on overload I believe). I tore it down and vacuumed it out including the blower wheel. Without the drum, the motor then was spinning freely. I ran it without the drum and it worked fine (Gas turned on). I put it back together. It then dried 1.75 loads of laundry before having the vibration.
Belt tensioner appears to be fine.
