It's somewhat difficult to determine the cause of this problem, but from the information you provided, it sounds as though a potential cause could be the exhaust blower.

The reason it may not make the sound when the dryer is set to air only with no heat is that when the heat cyle is on, the blower wheel, cage and shaft gets much warmer and the heat from expansion may be causing one or both of the fan bearings to expand, causing more friction that results in the sound you hear.

Since you said it only makes noise when in the air-only mode, it doesn't sound like a drum support roller, belt or the main drive motor.

    i think i found the problem, it seams the noise is coming from the belt tensioner seams to be vibrating and that is the noise

It could be possibly your rear roller bearings expanding with heat causing them to not spin as freely? Im not really too sure but its an idea you dont have many moving parts on the unit. Just your idler pulley, blower wheel, and rollers. Hope this helps.

Gas dryer makes loud hum


Sounds like you may have a motor issue, they can get lint trapped inside, and it causes the motor to overheat, and eventually go out. You can remove the top, then the front, and see if thats the problem. Usually, once the motor starts making noise, its time to replace. Right now, the packings in the motor are cold, and once they heat up, they stop making noise, so it could last quite a while.

Kenmore gas dryer runs but not heating


Try replacing the valve coils first, then the valve if the prior doesn't work. If there is a buzzing noise, I believe it's more likely the valve. I'm replacing both on mine to be sure.

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.

Loud noise when dryer is running.


My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.
