When pressing start on the machine, the drum wouldn't move & the motor would only hum loudly. When I opened it up, I found that one of the supply wheels was sticking and the idler pulley was worn.

The motor easily turns manually but the bearings squeal. Is it even worth trying to oil or lubricate the motor bearings, or should I just get a new motor?
