When I start the bottom drawer there is a noise that sound almost like something is hitting a spinning wheel. I have taken out the filters and the center sprayer part, but nothing is there. It got a little better at first, but noise increased w/in a minute. Same type noise as when I attached a piece of plastic to my bicycle as a kid.

Re: noise while running in bottom drawer
Check and see if the sprayer is clogged, check very carefully underneath and make sure all water is out, you could have a broken piece of glass under there if not it could be that it is not in the right position when put back on

The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on the upper hose hitting the top cover ir a plastic injector mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing, also a flat spot in the belt could cause a tapping noise. Something between the outer tub and wash basket. I have had to remove items lodged in the drain tube between the pump and tub, like bra under wires. Sometimes you can squeeze the tube and feel objects the ate lodged. I always take the tube off the tub side and run my finger all the way down to the pump impeller to make sure. I also check the I can spin the impeller and the nothing is in the pump. Hard to say with out being there. Where do you think the noise is coming from top , bottom , left , or right side?
Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.
whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps
bottom end noise usualy the knock of death for most engines
tap noises are lifters knock is crank or rod bearings. driving will only spin a bearing or weld it to the crank
if the truck worth it...used engine from auto wrecker
or spend that money on new ride
First check to see if its the belt. It may have separated. Then check the tensioner pulley, it may have a bad bearing. Pop your hood before you start the engine & run out to see right after u start it. have a flashlight with you... Its a good starting point
For me it was easy to fix. Ice had built up around the fan. I removed the bottom drawer. And remove the plate over the fan. That's the one in the back. 2 screws. remove the ice. Like new.
The reason noise stops when you open the drawer is that the fan stops when you open it.
I don't know that I can help you in any way other than to say that you are probably right. But some times the blower wheels do come loose and spin somewhat freely on the shaft and make a similar noise. But when that happens, you will usually notice a vibrating sound right after the drum stops spinning. Because the blower wheel continues to spin for a second or two. But I have seen, popsicle sticks, jewelry, bobby pins,those plastic white things that are under the collar in shirts and all sorts of other things in those blower wheels making noise.
IS THE NOISE SOMETHING HITTING THE FAN BLADE?
CHECK THE FAN ASSEMBLY BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.
NORMAL NOISES IN THE UNIT ARE A GURGLING NOISE OR THE SOUND OF RUNNING WATER OR HISSING. THIS IS DUE TO THE FREON BEING PUSHED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AS THE COMPRESSOR RUNS. POPPING OR SNAPPING CAN OCCUR WHEN THE COILS IN THE FREEZER MOVE DUE TO A CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE.
Usually this is caused by a long spoon or something similar being hit with water and slapping the inside of the dishwasher. Also, it could be the rinse arm spinning around and hitting a tall dish or utensil in the basket below. Check to see if the arm spins all the way around before you start your load. Also, make sure all dishes can't easily move and hit the inside of the washer.
