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.

Dryer screeches than stops cycle. Now doesnt work


I would bug them until they fixed it. You got sold a bill of goods. In other words avpiececof junk. Your bearings are burned up. You should ask for your money back if that is in the clause. Hold on to your paperwork and get copies made. I hope you didn't pay but 50-75 dollars.

Grinding Noise


Hi,

Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Hope this helps.

God Bless.
