Question about Washing Machines
The noise is very loud and not normal. Is there anything to check or to clean to try to fix this problem?
I would try to remove the back cover (after unplugging it) and see if there is an accumulation of dust on the fan motor. I would also check other places, if it is like mine the motor also turns a belt and they tend to get difficult for the motor to turn when full of lint.

My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.

I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Put some lubricant, oil, WD40, etc. on shaft of fan. Spin the fan with your finger and work the oil into the shaft until the fan spins freely again. Reassemble and problem will be gone for 2-3 weeks. Repeat again until you want to replace the fan motor.
