Dryer repair man

So I become a dryer repair man last night. My wife's dryer started squeaking real bad. Took it out to the garage and disassembled the entire thing. I can't believe the dryer lint that was built up! There are not to much to them. Pulled the drum out and all. Tonight I will take it outside and blow the rest out with an air compressor and get it nice and clean. Going to replace the belt, along with lubricating the drum attachment and idler pulley. I was originally just going to toss it, but just a little maintenance and she will be as good as new. Anyone else ever taken one apart? There is not much to them.

All cleaned out, blew everything out today, everything lubed back up. Just waiting for the belt Monday and good to go.

So thought I had this all fixed, I guess not though. Had to order another part. Hoping it's not the motor.

Well it ended up actually being the motor, but we were able to fix it. We had to disassemble the entire thing again, but she is all put back together and whisper quiet. Saved quite a bit of money by doing it ourselves.
