Question about Fisher and Paykel Dryers
Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.
This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).
This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.
If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.
Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.
