Question about KitchenAid KGYS850LT Gas Dryer
When I first turn on the dryer it has a loud hum, but then quiets down after running a few minutes. Why? It's a whirlpool about 10 years old.
Sounds like you may have a motor issue, they can get lint trapped inside, and it causes the motor to overheat, and eventually go out. You can remove the top, then the front, and see if thats the problem. Usually, once the motor starts making noise, its time to replace. Right now, the packings in the motor are cold, and once they heat up, they stop making noise, so it could last quite a while.
