Question about Dryers
This is a GE electric dryer, 2yr. old. Recently started a scraping sound when rotating. Sounds like something got between the tub and cabinet, like possibly gravel or metal. Don't know the Model but it is a single front load. The instrument panel at top & back reads left to right: START....FABRIC CARE.....WRINKLE CARE......SIGNAL......and round dial reading: COTTONS....EASY CARE...DELICATES....TIMED DRY.
Is there a way to view the area around the outside of tub for inspection?
Thanks for your help
The motor turning the drum may be bad OR the spindle or axle the drum turns on may be bad as well. The belt turning the drum may have been to tight thus putting too much pressure on the drum which eventually would wear it out then causing the noise which will only get louder as time goes on.
You will need to take off the back of the dryer and possibly the top to gain proper access to the drum and motor.
