Cabrio Dryer making whirring sounds

That could be something in the blower. In the past I have found garment support wires. That could very well be it. The dryer is built quite well with 4 wheels instead of 2 wheels. You can drop the service panel in front and remove the filter housing very easily to inspect the blower and clean the filter chute. Here is my home movie on repairing one of these

Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer MOD WED5600XW0 making whirring noise

take the bottom panel off,you'll see a metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,there's a blower wheel behind the duct,if the wheel cracks or gets loose where it connects to the motor shaft it can make this sound,start the dryer and listen to see if the noise comes from there.if you can't tell unplug the dryer,pull out the lint filter and then take out the screws that hold the metal duct in place and remove it,now you can see the blower wheel,spin the drum by hand and see if the blower wheel moves with the drum and belt.if it looks fine stop spinning it and grab the wheel and see if it feels loose,if it is you will be able to tell.also while you have the duct off clean it out,you should take it off at least once a year and clean it out,then vac out the cabinet and blow out your vent line with a leaf blower if it's long,just remove it from the back of the dryer,stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.go outside first and make sure the outside duct is clear,no cage or anything that will block the lint from blowing outside.if the blower wheel is ok then the noise could be the belt roller or belt pulley,thety sell a kit with all the parts together but usually when someone says it's making a whirring sound it most likely is the blower wheel.hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool Calypso gas dryer, vented in the back. Can the venting be changed to vent out the side?

some dryers have a round "knockout" on either side which would allow for different venting options. You also need to check the ducting inside the machine to determine if it can be re routed without causing a sharp bend or kink that would cause over heating and lower efficiency.

Whirlpool Side by Side: Freezer freezes refrig doesn't cool.

check for a blockage. There is only one cooling section, divided by airflow for freezer / fridge.
Perhaps something sticky is in the vents, or the freezer section has poor airflow, resulting in ice formation.
Unplug the unit for several hours, clean out vents, and make sure freezer section has good airflow from the vents.

Whirlpool #ler5636ez2 need diagram for belt instalatiion

Unplug the dryer...
  • Remove the lint trap and the 2 screws holding the vent to the top panel (be careful not to drop them down the vent!).
  • Reach around the back and pull the top panel toward you. Insert a putty knife from the front on each side to release the top panel clips. Lift and flip the top panel back.
  • From the inside, remove the 2 screws holding the front panel to the cabinet. Lift the front panel straight up off the front panel clips (hooks) and swing it aside.
  • You should now have access to the belt.This diagram shows you how to loop the belt through the idler pulley.

To replace the belt...
  • Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum.The idler pulley fits into the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side and loop it around the motor pulley.
To reassemble, follow steps in reverse.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!

If this microwave has vented outside in the past then most likely a bird or something has built i nest in or on the vent blocking airflow. If its always been this way then in order for this model to vent though an exterior duct the blower motor has to be flipped so that it blows upwards and a vent connector needs to be installed. This is a fairly easy process once the microwave has been taken down but can be dangerous because there is a capacitor that holds 4000 volts that can discharge though the cabinet if you're not careful.

Whirlpool 3RLEQ8000 Electric Dryer

I'm not sure about this with your machine but look low on your front panal. Most have two screws holding front panal on. Usually hidden in the character line along the base.(Clips will hold the the upper under the top...just flip up the panal it will pop off.) I hope this helps.

Convett my whirlpool gas dryer to vent from the side

Whirlpool makes a kit for this, however since you have a gas dryer, you will not be able to vent out the side the gas heater is on.

Take the front panel off and look for the gas valve it should be on the left side, if you need to vent out on the left side you will not be able too.
