Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...

My mother's duet dryer just started making a loud mechanical whining noise. It does not sound like a rubbing noise you would expect from a belt...the dryer is about 5 yrs old. I am just curious if anyone has experienced anything like this. It still heats like it should...just makes the noise. Thanks for any replies!!

It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.

My Whirlpool Duet dryer is making a loud squeeling noise when drying.


Hello, the squelling noise from your dryer may be coming from the drum rollers. May need to be opened up and lubed. It can also be the idler pulley, also can be lubed. Disconnect power, remove lower panel, and see if you can isolate the noise. Oil where necessary. If you can't get to it, the drum wil need to be removed. If something is locked up or damaged, it will need to be replaced. Caution: Don't stick fingers near moving parts when running :-> Hope this helps, Rich

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
