From what you say, I would say that the front or rear drum bearings are worn, it is going to invvolve a strip down to determine which.

My dryer sounds like there are metal balls rolling around inside when clothes are drying


Sounds like the rollers are worn out. If they are fine then see if the dryer has glides on the drum.

It sounds like the spring which tensions the idler pulley has come off the bracket. You'll need to locate it and put it back on.

ED 56 Dryer Scrapping sound like metal on metal when the drum spins


Most dryers are supported by a bearing at the rear and teflon pads at the front. Sounds like one of the pads is worn out leaving the drum to ride on the metal frame. The bearing can also make that sound if it breaking down. Most dryers have enough play that you can lift the drum and turn it. If the noise stops then the pads are bad. You can usually find them at most dryer wholesale or online appliance part stores.

Dryer sounds like metal rubbing, drum in a bind. The drum is turning, but making a sound, like metal to metal, especially when it starts up.


You have a bad drum bearing. When it heats up the sound goes away slightly. When the drum bearing goes bad it tilts the drum in the front and it is rubbing on the metal front. Check the seal in the front. You could use lub spray but that is only preventing the inedible-replacement. Good luck.

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.

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
