Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
My 2003 Whirlpool Senson Dryer is making a loud roaring sound when it is operating. It still dries the clothes and otherwise operates normally. It just makes this roaring noise while it's on. Is this a maintenance problem? Could this lead to more problems?
Does the roaring sound occur after the machine warms up? If so, it could be a bad drum bearing. the heat from the dryer causes it to expand in its housing and, since it may been defective, could start "roaring". If so, The dryer drum shaft/bearing assembly will need to be replaced
If however, the roaring is immediate upon start up then u may have a bearing in your dryer motor. The entire motor may have to be replaced.
