    Mine is a Inglis by Whirlpool model #IED4400SQO. I bought it new in 2006 but it is out of warranty. I have the same sound of rasping metal when it is running. The sound happens almost always for the last few weeks. Sometimes the sound is just for a minute during the startup. Sometimes it does not rasp at all. But generally it does this scraping metal sound until I turn it off. I have taken the entire machine apart. The idler pulley, belt, rollers, heating element are all brand new looking. There is nothing visually wrong. There was little to no lint trapped in the blower. The motor seems to rotate fine and the blower has no visible wear. I think it could be the blower because the attachment site from the blower onto the motor shaft seems to be rubbing against the galvanized metal on the interior cabinet. This seems odd to me. I cannot figure out how to removet the blower to see if it is worn or damaged further. I don't know what to do at this point. Did you figure out your problem??



    Thanks!

Dryer starts with heat. After 10-15 minutes, when dryer calls for more heat, here a metal clicking noise, flame does not ignite. When it's clicking, I can look down the back from the top and see a glow....


Your gas valve coils are defective. Part #694539 and 694540 are required. Once the coils get hot they collapse internally and the gas valve shuts off. This is a common problem when valve coils get weak from use.

Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...


It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.
