I have a Whirlpool electric dryer (SEDS800MQO) that I have had since 2003. It is located in a sheltered outside area which is subjected to outside temperatures here in western Washington state. I do 3 loads of wash once a week.
About a year ago, the dryer began to exhibit problems. When I start the dryer it will do 1 of 4 things.
1. Runs normally (usual result)
2. Starts but makes a whining sound for a few seconds, then runs normally (occasional)
3. Starts and makes a few loud thumps, then runs normally (occasional)
4. Drum does not turn, but can hear motor (seldom)
(Note: 2,3,& 4 are more likely when it has been colder outside)
This past summer I had the machine apart to clean lint. I did not see anything that looked broken so put it back together. We are now in our colder months and I am again getting the conditions noted above.

Because of the machine’s physical location, it is not a simple task to relocate it for disassembly, etc. So I would prefer to do it once.

Now finally to my question:
If I replace the Dryer Belt, Idler Pulley, and Rear Drum Support Rollers – will that solve the conditions noted above? My Maytag DIY Repair Manual indicates that it should.

Is there anything else that might need replacing?

Thank you all for your time,
