Hi! Newbie here with a dryer question.
I have a Hotpoint 5 cycle electric dryer that I've had for about 15 years. It's always worked great for me, but in the last couple of months it has been making this loud squealing noise. Even with the noise though, it still did a good job drying the clothes. I had a bushing replaced on it which helped with the noise for a very short time.
Today, I was drying a load and after 2 hours, the indicator said that it was only a quarter of the way done but the clothes were actually dried. The dryer is still very warm to touch on the outside after 9 hours of sitting. Any ideas on what is wrong? Also, do you think it's worth putting the money into to fix or should I just look at getting something new? Thanks in advance!
