The usual cost is about $500 - $600 if you call A&E FACTORY SERVICE

$700 - 1.000.00 if you call Appliance Unlimited

I thank you should get a all new unit instead of fixing it

My dryer WGD96HEAW1 makes vibrating and grinding noise after heats up, not in the beginning when turned on.


DRYER MAKES NOISES.

A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises
Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.

The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.
The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.

CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum

Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

The blower:

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.

The bearings:
The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.
The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.

The drum rollers or castors:

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.
Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

My dryer makes a weird noise when running, kinda like the drum is rubbing against something, could that be a worn belt?


depending on the make and model of the machine the drum glides or rollers need replacing,to accomplish this you need to remove the front cover by removing toe kick panel screws and lifting up on cover,you get instructions with the glides or rollers on replacement when you buy them

I have a 99 dodge durango 5.2. I was told my fuel pump is on the drivers side of the truck near the second door. I was told it is too loud and is beginning to go out. When I drive the truck it does not...


if it's making noise then it's going out, try keeping the tank at least half full at all times until u change it to relieve stress that much gas causes it's own pressure so the pump won't have to work as hard. Yes u can reuse the housing IF the housing is not the problem in the first place.

My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying


Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.
