Re: whirlpool dryer making noise and shaking! The bin
The dryer has "rollers" underneath the dryer drum that support and allow the drum to roll smoothly when drying.
I believe one or both of your rollers are worn out. In either case, make sure you replace them all or you will be doing this again in the near future when the other one decides to fail.
Below is a diagram of the rollers ( #44 ) that need to be checked and replaced.

Something must be inside the blower wheel. I cannot imagine why it would shake like that. This dryer has 4 wheels instead of 2 so it oughta be stable. The only thing to do is get inside the machine and see what is causing it. The dryer with a filter inside is also sometimes known as a series 90 dryer. Look for some series 90 dryer videos on youtube. Like this crappy one I made:
1 Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing. 2 Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.
3 Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly. 4 Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable. 5 Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues. 6 Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position. 7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet. 8 inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp
Hello. Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator. 1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded. 2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle. 3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes. 4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle. Thanks.
If the machine shakes or makes a lot of noise, make sure the
dryer is level. Some shaking is normal, but it shouldn't bounce around
like it's itching to go somewhere. Adjust the leveling legs. They just
screw and unscrew. Check to make sure the load inside the dryer is
properly distributed and is not all clumped together.
Match the control settings to the type of load, and make sure you're not overloading the dryer.
Check that the ducts aren't blocked if the clothes
take too long to dry. Look for lint or missing socks. Check to make
sure the ducting isn't kinked, and make sure the outside dryer vent flap
moves freely and isn't blocked---by snow, for example.
Sort your clothes by weight if they aren't drying properly. Lightweight clothes should be dried separately from items like comforters.
Make sure the lint drawer is empty.
Press the "Stop" button or press the "Lock" button for three
seconds if the controls don't work. Press the "Power" button to wake the
dryer up if it won't start. Make sure the "Delay Start" button isn't
flashing if the machine fails to start. Press "Start" again.
If you see only lights displayed on the screen and no
numbers, it's normal. The dryer has detected a low level of moisture.
Other normal behavior is when the time remaining jumps to a lower
number---it's revising its estimated time remaining. When you can't make
a selection and the dryer beeps twice, the dryness setting is
incompatible with the chosen dry cycle hope this helps please tell me if it does
You have a motor that has a thermal overload built into it. This is for the dryer's protection. My best guess is to replace the motor. But before you do all that, make sure the wiring is good from the receptacle to the controls in the back of the dryer. It could not have a good connection thus causing this noise.
