You meas that EHT leaking. The EHT cap must be replced and final anode portion should be cleaned well.

I have 3-year-old Kitchenaid Blender, model KSB1575CCUO. The motor started occasionally making a grinding sound, especially on high speeds, but blades still turn. Does the motor need oiling?

it could be failing bushes for the motor
take it to an appliance repair shop for an inspection of the motor to check for bush/bearing problems

I have a loud grinding noise on the undercarriage of my car and I have discovered that the noise is coming from the bushings that hold the frame under the engine and transmission. What is that part...

Sub frame bushings. Call your local GM dealer. They will know exactly what you need and I believe have everything you need to replace in a kit.

There are rollers and bushings that sometimes have to be replaced the bushings are metal pegs in brass bushings they usually grind when they are worn out . the rollers in the front under the drum can be sprayed with lube spray but not to much

My Maytag dryer (model # MDE4806AYW) makes a grinding sound all of the sudden. Sounds like the cylinder drum is scraping on something. The dryer is only a couple of years old. What do you think needs to be...

Could be your front glides on your drum housing. They are just Teflon pads that the front of the drum rides on. If they wear down you will get a metal on metal rubbing. The part number is 40116501. The other possibility could be your rear rollers going bad but they usually will make almost a squeak usually. They are what support the rear end of the drum.
Hope this helps _MJ_

I have a DPSR473GWOWW Profile gas dryer. It sounds as if the drum is off axis and is griding, or if some debris got inside. The drum is turning, but does not sound healthy.

If you remove the front panel, there is a plastic housing they call a bearing that the drum rides on. There are 4 slippery plastic pads (slides) mounted to the so called bearing. These will wear out and the drum will wear through the housing, or "bearing". It is a poor, cheap setup, but common. It also could be the rear bearing which is just a cheap nylon bushing. It can wear out and start grinding metal on metal. A repair kit is available for the rear bearing, and the "bearing" and slides for the front are available too. Chances are the felt pad on the duct portion that connects to the bearing is worn too. The prices add up on all this stuff. You may want to order a spare timer knob too, as they are not designed to last and crack and turn on the timer shaft making you think the timer is bad.

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"

Drum noise

The problem sounds like the drum wheels. Your drum sits atop wheels that support it and help it turn. As these age they will loose their grease or lint will build up on them. The result is a horrible grinding noise that gets louder and louder. It is a cheap repair but it is a pain to do. You will need to remove the drum and belt in order to get the wheels off. The wheels are held up by a simple pin. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.

Xbox 360 grinding sound

Sounds like a wire hitting one of the fans inside. It could also be the hard drive if you have one. Try to change the way the console is standing and see if the sound gets worse or better to try and narrow down the issue.
