Question about Dryers
There is this un-Godly noise at the spin cycle. the machine still works but it is now this noise. please help!!!
There are a few things that it could be. The simplest is the fan which blows the air across the element is impinging on the back panel. This is relatively easy to fix, the fan is usually mounted directly driven from the back of the motor and held on by a spring washer or circlip.
Remove the back panel and rotate the drum by hand, you should be able to see the plastic fan catching on the metal of the back panel. A new fan costs very little and is very easy to replace with standard household tools.
Alternatively the motor bearings could be on their way out. This is more annoying to fix - get the engineer in for it. Again rotating the drum by hand, rock it back and forth you will feel a grinding transmitted through the belt (very worn bearings) or on the motor itself.
