My older dryer has been making a thumping noise when stopping after it runs for a while and is warm. It sounds like it might be a belt but since the drum is moving, I think it might be the felt seals. At least I think they are felt. When I first turn the dryer on and it is cold, it just sounds like it might be sliding on a felt pad and otherwise seems t be working fine.
1. Does it sound like I'm on the right track?
2. Is replacng the seals very difficlut? I'm fairly handy and sort of mechanical, plus I used to sell appliances and parts.
3. Is there something else I should be replacing while I have it taken apart?
Thanks for any assistance.
