Dryer drum spins too fast, causing clothes to cling to the inside surface of the drum rather than tumble, resulting in wrinkling and inadequate drying.

Thought I would post the problem and then the solution because I searched for hours looking for a solution to this problem without success.

Loss of most of the motor pulley grooves allowed the hex end of the pulley to further tighten on the motor shaft resulting in the drive belt riding on a larger diameter, higher on the belt restrainer.

I had the exact same problem with my Kenmore 110.68832700, replacing the motor pulley fixed the issue too. Thanks a bunch for your post! It was the only thing helpful I could find online.

I had this very same problem on a Kenmore 500 series gas dryer due to the high speed of the drum and the result being uneven drying I had a heck of a time getting to the right answer. It turned out to be the pulley on the end of the motor shaft had failed where the belt attaches to it. You could not tell unless you took the belt off and removed the pulley, in my case the pulley came off in 2 pieces. Replacing the pulley solved the problem, the drum speed returned to normal. This is after spending hundreds of hours researching the issue and trying every suggestion out there when they were all wrong.
