I feel like I have a moral responsibility to attempt to repair anything before making it waste. So I’m trying my hand at the dryer. Sadly I didnt’ realize that the whole tub joint pops upwards so I detached the tub from the join and then found the join comes off pretty easy anyways.

Anyhow, everything is made of garbage these days:

But I think I can replace that. But while I’m in there: any recommendations on how to lubricate the tub joint? Anything else I should be replacing while I’ve got it apart? I noticed the tape sealing up the exhauste has disintegrated so I figure I should replace that with a strip of aluminum duct tape.

    Not sure if there’s a specific grease to use, but I’d imagine any relatively high viscosity grease should suffice. Maybe someone else can recommend something more specific/appropriate than “axle grease”.

    Might as well replace the belt while you’ve got it apart. The way my luck goes, I’d get it all back in business and the belt would snap.
