Although this is possible, usually one of the wheel bearings may have gotten dry or even is stuck. Inside there are wheels that the drum is steadied by and that rotate with the drum. If it's a year old it should be under warranty and a tech can fix it. If that is a problem, remove the back (after unplugging it) find the wheels and rotate the drum by hand. If a wheel is stuck or dry you will find it. I hope this helps.

When I turn on dryer I can hear a belt or something scraping for a while then it goes away. how can I fix this sound & what is happening?


The seal on the front of the drum could be rubbing against the inside of the cabinet. This often is a symptom of worn drum rollers.

Runs for about 5 minutes and then shuts off


You might have a motor failing. Before you order parts, you need to check some things. Disconnect the electrical power from the dryer. Two spring clips hold the top down on your dryer. Insert a putty knife or a small screwdriver into the crack between the cabinet and the top. About 2-3 inches in from each side is a spring clip. Push in on the clips and they will release the top from the cabinet. Lift the top and let it rest against the wall behind the dryer.

Rotate the drum slowly by hand and listen and feel for hard places. The drum should turn smoothly and fairly easily. You will be turning the motor and the blower wheel as you rotate the drum and if something is inside the blower housing you should hear it rubbing or moving around.

If nothing is wrong in the blower wheel or the drum bearings, the motor will be your problem.

The dryer drum will not turn, even manually with the belt removed


Sounds like something became wedged against the drum. Maybe a bearing?

Sounds like the tub is rubbing against something


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
When you have the drum out you can check for rub marks on the drum also.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

DRUM MAKES NOISE WHEN TURNING ALMOST LIKE IT'S RUBBING AGAINST SOMETHING INSIDE THE MACHINE. SOUNDS LIKE DRUM IS TRYING TO STICK AT SOME POINT OF ROTATION.


check that all the support springs are connected and one is not broken. It is also possible that something is between the drum and the frame.

The dryer makes a high pitched sound when running. It sounds like the drum is rubbing against something. What could this be and what's the best way of troubleshooting this?


the drum rides on a felt seal around the door opening it could be worn out or some thing could have gone through one of the holes or possibly the bearing
