    Dryer makes a scratching or grinding sound when running. I took it apart and can,t find anything. I think it is either the tension wheel or belt. Any suggestions would be great.

    mine makes an awful grinding/screeching noise! It also (I'm not sure if this is totally unrelated) gets clothes caught in the front between the part that turns and the part that stays stationary... Crazy!

TAKE THE DRYER APART USE A LITTLE MOTOR OIL TO GREASE ALL SHAFTS ON IDLER PULLEY AND USE A BIT OF VASALINE ON THE REAR BEARING ON THE BACK OF THE DRUM THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE GRINDING NOISE

Dryer Problem


Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.

This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).

This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.

If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.

Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.
