Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I have a whirlpool dryer and there is a rubbing/knocking sound when the drum turns. What can I check ?
The sound is most likely from one of the wheels the drum rotates on ( usually the lower one ). The bearings wear and sometimes break and completely fall out from center of wheel. I replaced one on mine at a cost of $5.00 from a local repair shop. Just provide brand and model number when calling to see if they have the part in stock. You should be able to access this wheel by removing lower front panel and reaching. Please note I only had to remove the ring pin ( not the bolt ) to remove the wheel. It will be really tight when putting in new one but with a little force you should be able to manage. Before starting you will definitely want to unplug the dryer and still don't touch the electrical wiring or components. Hope this helps as it saved me money.
