Check for metal shavings under the unit pull off the back cover. It seems like this can be one of a couple things. Bad main bearing, your clutch is not fully disengaging or the brake is not disengaging

I have a whirlpool dryer mod #LER5620KQ1 that suddenly went dead. Any ideas on what I need to do?


First thing yall do is check for reasons why the dryer would quit. The most common being air restrictions. themobilian_2155.jpg
Your dryer has a fuse right there beside the filter housing. When the drum temp exceeds 350f rapidly this fuse melts and kills power to the door switch. themobilian_2156.jpg
If the fuse is fine then check the door switch

Dryer doesn't want to run- makes grinding noise


its sounds like a worn bearing problem.with the m/c switch off ,turn drum by hand and see if it is hard to do so.if you get a gritty feeling in your hands or hear a grinding noise,then that is probably the bearing.

Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer


Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

Grinding noise


In my humble opinion, a dryer making a grinding noise is worth repairing. Possible Problems:

Worn Drum Rollers (Very Likely): More of a thumping / grinding sound. Replacing drum roller supports is considered to be a routine "normal ware & tear" repair with parts costing about $15 - $20 or so. Its' kinda like a tune-up for a vehicle. The rollers can be located in a couple places, but are typically located on the inside rear of the drum; upon dis-assembling the dryer.

Broken/Loose Blower Fan Wheel (Likely): The blower wheel can become loose or brake off the motor shaft and can make a "rumbling / grinding sound and can run about $15 - $25 for the part. The degree is difficulty when repairing a little high, but is commonly performed.

* Note: Removing and threading the blower wheel is reverse to prevent the fan blower from natually spinning/coming-off "Righty loosey, lefty tighty"

I HAVE DRYER GE MOD #DWSR488EB2WW SER#ZG743601A ***HAVE GRINDING NOISE. RELPACED THE BEARING IN THE BACK. BELT SEEMS OK. PUT BACK TOGETHER NOISE CONTINUED. THE NOISE HAS A SLIGHT GRIND/SCRAPE IN ONLY PART...


The most likely cause is the front drum supports. There are 3 or 4 teflon strips (about a half inch wide and 2 inches long) on the top of the front panel that the dryer drum glides on. When these wear down, the drum can scrape on the plastic that holds them or on the metal frame around the door frame. Another possibility is if the drum touches the dryer exhaust vent pipe, most often only if the dryer is vented out the bottom of the dryer and the vent pipe has shifted up just a bit, allowing it to contact a spot on the drum with each revolution.
