Recently the belt of my 8 year old electric dryer snapped due to wear. So I have opened up the dryer and while I am waiting for the replacement belt to arrive I was wondering if it makes sense to also lube up pulleys and/or other moving parts inside the dryer to extend lifetime of remaining parts? If yes, then what lube to use (teflon, lithium, graphite or some other)?
Following considerations came into my mind and I am somewhat overwhelmed with all the lubricant options available:
- pulleys are made from plastic. Hence lube must be plastic-friendly
- small lint will be inside dryer. Hence lube should not attract such particles.
- the temperatures can get quite high. Hence lube should not be flammable.
- any other considerations I may be missing?
