I have an eletrolux dryer that stopped heating. i opened the back and found a 1" rubber belt that was broken. the dryer drum sounded like it was bouncing off the tracks before it stopped working. it was almost like it was off the tracks or a gear broke. also there was a temp sensor that broke and fell into the drum about a year ago but it worked without that sensor being attached.

Yes you will need to install a new belt and a bearing kit on the unit. Can you do that?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I don't know where can I get a new belt bearing kit and how hard is it to replace that?
