There is a bearing on the drum and guides at the front of the drum. You will have to remove the top of the machine to see the drum parts. Unplug it first. The top then pops off. Look at the back of the drum to see if the bearing is bad.

It is caused by three possible candidates:

Have these devices checked out and replace the faulty part.

Dryer not heating

Hello Krazy

If your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat. You need to check this following:
Check for proper air flow
Test the safety fuse
Test the thermostats
Test the centrifugal switch
Test the timer motor
Test the heating element

Best Regards

Hello, I have an LG DLE0442W electric dryer. It is about 2 years old. It started to take a long time to dry so I checked the venting and it seems fine. I also checked the breaker and it had not tripped....

Hello Mrs. Noble- I would ask if you have gone to the outside of the house and felt the air flow out of the dryer vent where it exits the exterior wall, if you have, and it is blowing strong then you may have a problem with a thermostat or thermal fuse. You should probably have an LG Tech out to diagnose the issue if the venting is not an issue. Good luck and best regards.

Fisher and paykel dryer works but very noisy

If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.
