I assumed the drum belt has broken so without looking and tearing into the dryer first. I looked at the model number on parts select and the belt was $43.00. However the maintenance kit wihich included the belt, 2 wheel guides and belt tensioner was only $25.00. go figure. Ordered it and within 3 days it was at my front door. After opening the dryer I noticed the belt was intact. After removing the drum I notice heavy resistance on the motor. Thinking motor bearings were out! The internal motor heaters would drop out and than reset. Opened the fan shroud and found that a sock had fallin into the top lint screen opening and locked up the fan wheel with out the persons knowledge when the screen was than pushed back into place. Alot of work to find out something so simple. hilarious actually. What a relief that it was not the motor and since I had it apart I went ahead and put in the entire maintenance kit anyway. The whole ordeal toless than 1 hr.
