Need to remove shipping bolts--where?

Ariston ASL65VXS front-loading vented electric dryer, brand new, makes awful metallic grinding noise when turned on. Sounds like shipping bolts not removed, but where are they?

SOURCE: ariston front loading washing washing

Believe it or not.....its almost always the cloths ( heavy blankets) that one places inside.
TRY:: In the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced the TUB will rock and make that "loose drum out of alignment" noise. STOP the machine and open the door ( IF IT IS A TOP LOADER ) realign the cloths (heavy or more then one blanket) so that it is EVENLY spaced through out the tub.Start the machine again.If it does it again, stop the machine and REALIGN the cloths (blanket !!) again.
p.s. there is a simpler way of doing it but I don't want you to loose your hand in the process.

SOURCE: ariston al1256t bearing replacement

Lay the washing machine on its front & remove the back cover. Loosen the motor mount bolts (2 only) to allow the drive belt to slacken. Sit the drive belt aside. You will notice that the belt goes back into the clean shiny grooves in the motor pulley - be sure to put into the correct grooves when reassembling.

The drum pulley centre bolt is a normal right hand thread ie clockwise to undo. The pulley is then easily removed with a bearing puller.

Loosen the three bolts on the end of the 3 pronged mount, noting which is at the top of the machine - it only goes in the one way. Remove the three pronged mount from the machine. It will withdraw fron the drum shaft easily - worst case use the bearing puller again.

Next knock each bearing out of the three pronged mount with a drift, being careful to not damage the seal on one side. Put new bearings in (with 2RS seals are ok instead of 2Z type ie plastic seal is ok in place of metal seal for these bearings). Refit the seal last of all.

Put all back together & retighten the bolts firmly. Fit the drive belt (in the motor pulley shiny grooves) and retension the belt with the motor mount bolts (2 only) back in the original position.

Don't forget to put the machine back upright before test running!

I have also rebuilt a motor in one of these for about $100 if anybody needs to know how. Much better value than replacing one at $375+.

Dryer is making a grinding sound once ever rotation.

Your problem sounds like drum rollers is in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

MY washer starts grinding when it starts a cycle

OK, are you certain that the shipping bolts were removed when the washer was delivered and installed? I've had folks that complained after 3-4 years that they're front loading washer was now making all sorts of strange noises when their kids came home from college and really stuffed the washer with clothes, etc.

Check the installation and owners manual for the diagram that shows the shipping bolts that should have been removed from the rear of the washer when it was installed in your home. There are usually 2-4 of these, depending on the brand/model of washer.

If the shipping bolts have been removed (all of them!) then you can pull the washer out from the wall and see if there is something that might be hitting the drive belt/motor underneath the washer. It's possible that a tub suspension spring(s) and/or pulley(s) may have come off their mount causing the noise.

Another thing to look at is to see if the pulley on the motor shaft has come loose and might be causing the noise, as it might have worked loose but still catches on the keyway in the shaft enough to still function.

I usually pull the unit away from the wall with the hoses hooked up so I can remove the rear cover and watch everything while I run the unit through a short wash cycle. That is a quick and easy way to see what might be causing the noise. From there, you can start to focus in on different areas to verify or eliminate them as the noise source. Of course, it goes without saying, be very careful not to get your hands caught while the machine is running and unplug it before you reach in and start feeling around the unit.

Ginding noise during agitation

From the GE site.....

Front load washers and some compact model washers do not come with a shipping rod. According to the Installation Instructions for these machines there are 4 bolts, 4 yellow plastic spacers, and 4 metal "p" clamps that need to be saved and reinstalled before moving the washer to prevent any damage to the machine.
