Our dryer is making a whining sound (almost like metal on metal) when the dry cycle first starts out. It goes away after a few minutes. Any ideas as to what's going wrong with it?

Nissan pathfinder 1995 model SUV, when i try to start it its making a whinning noise then i hear a hard clucking sound and the whinning goes away without the car starting


Does the engine crank at all ?
The low whine could be the starter turning but not engaging the flywheel.
The clunk could be when the bendix gear on the starter makes contact with the flywheel.
If the starter does not have enough voltage, the solenoid or bendix may not engage. Even tho you replaced both the starter and battery, there could be a problem with the cables or the ground connection.

Hi bojanhadziki...
You could have a couple of problems..
1...The door seal may need replacing, making metal to metal contact
2...The drum rollers may need lubrication or replacement
3...The back bearing may need replacement or lubrication.

My dryer is squeeking and grinding, but not all the time. What could be wrong? When it first starts, it sounds like it is grinding, but continues to work. After a few minutes, it stops. Then it will start...


One of two issues is going on, or maybe both. The first cause for the grinding noise is going to be the main bearing that is bad, and needs to be replaced. The squeaking is actually coming from the belt. So I would check under the unit and make sure that you do not have any metal shavings under the unit. Then also check the belt

your whining noise might be comming from dry belts in order to pinpoint your problem have a jug of water ready before startup open the bonnet then startup if the noise appears pour water over the belts if noise goes away replace v belts
