On the whirlpool driers there are two support rollers that need to be replaced periodicly. the best thing to do is to get a repair kit or tune up kit. it comes with a new set of support rollers, an idler pulley and a new belt. If you are confident it is a fairly straight forward repair. ***ALWAYS UNPLUG THE DRIER BEFORE YOU DO ANY THING***

Spinning cycle sounds like it is rubbing against something


I take it there is a loud noise while in the spin mode.
That normally means your bearings x2 and seal need to be replaced. Truthfully it needs to be done by an appliance tech.

Sounds like you have a cv joint problem, or the front brake pads are worn down to metal and rubbing against the rotor, also could be the wheel bearing. Better have it checked.

Rubbing metal noise coming from timing chain.


Dear Rubbing Noise,
The correct and long term repair for this would be to replace the chain and timing chain tensioners.Only saying to replace the chain seeing as how it's been slapping on metal, where it's not supposed to.This will cure your problem and you will be a happy camper, HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

DRUM MAKES NOISE WHEN TURNING ALMOST LIKE IT'S RUBBING AGAINST SOMETHING INSIDE THE MACHINE. SOUNDS LIKE DRUM IS TRYING TO STICK AT SOME POINT OF ROTATION.


check that all the support springs are connected and one is not broken. It is also possible that something is between the drum and the frame.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

Lock light doesn't go on, won't fill, metal rubbing sound


thins sounds like a bad control board and wax motor issue, comon for this machine prbably about $300 for you to repair ,closer to $500 for aservice co. however, you say oyou hear a metal on metal rubbing thisi a sign of a more serious problem of rear bearing NOt worth cost of repair.. one way to tell the rear bearing is to open the washer door and grab the inner basket, try to lift it up you should have no movement iff correct. ifyour able to lift teh inner tuban inch or so, independently of the machine, i would venture to say oyou need a rear bearing// i mean new machine!!!!

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
