Question about Washing Machines
Hi, You did not mention a model number so I am having to wing it here. I could be of much greater assistance with a Make and Model number.
Generally speaking on most stand alone dryers there is a large felt on the front and back of the drum assy that over time wears out. When that happens you start to get some metal to metal drum to chassis chaffing which is most likely what your hearing.
An upper front seal would look like this:
A lower front seal would look like this:
and the rear cylinder seal would look like this
all of the above require high temp adhesive
It is usally the lower front and rear cyl. seal that cause the symptom you describe.
If your going to have this repair done I would also order and belt and roller kit as preventative manitenance due to the fact that you already will have access to those componets and it will extend the working life of your dryer substantially.
