Lubrication
Instructions
Every Kenmore automatic dryer is thoroughly lubricated
at the time of assembly with lubricants designed to last
the normal life of the product. Under normal operating
conditions further lubrication should not be required.
In those instances where dryer operating time accumu-
lates rapidly, noise level may be reduced and bearing life
extended by proper lubrication. If repairs are performed
on the machine, then complete
lubrication of the
repaired assemblies is desirable.
Effective, long-lasting lubrication of a dryer requires
lubricants designed for the particular application. The
following chart lists the recommended
lubricant. This
lubricant is available from any Sears Parts Department.
