Possible problem with one of the roller guides supporting the drum. You will need someone to come out and disassemble the unit to see what the noise is. Have them check the 4 roller guides and the motor for any problems.

2001 Ford windstar has a rumble/vibration on left front when driving over speeds of 10 mph. Consstant and increases with speed.

It sounds like you have a bad spindle/hub. You will need to jack up the front left tire, remove the wheel and the brake caliper and pads. Now spin the hub by hand. If you hear a grinding like sounds or low rumble sound, or there is more resistance than normal, replace your hub/spindle assembly.

When I engage the mower blades it makes a nasty noise, like a bad bearing. I checked the brakes, belts, etc and all is well. Any thoughts?

hi there mrswp211

check out the pulleys from the pto to the deck for noise - if rumbly / noisy replace them , if not
remove pto to deck belt ( make note of belt routing 1st ) then rotate blades and spindles by hand give a good spin you should hear if noisy , grab blades and try to move them fore/ aft to see have movement if they do and they are not smooth and quite spindle bearings are the problem

generally if unit is noisy only when deck engaged bearings will cause this

but make sure pulleys on the top of eack spindle good to and everything is tight
a badly slipping vee belt will make a squeeling noise and somtimes will make the unit shudder

you will have to remove deck to replace bearing(s) , from experience replace mandrell/ spindle assys do both at same time because if one has gone the other wont be far behind - both do same milage and work and quite often if replace bearings only they dont go back in tight .

cheers hope it helps

The spindle or shaft turning the drum may be bad. The motor as well could be slowly but surely grinding to a halt.

Electric dryer makes a rumbling when tumbler is turning.

Check the drum bearing, a load noise, and often spinning problems are symptoms of a bad drum bearing.The bearing is at the base of the drum and accessing it is not easy.

You can find diagrams and replacement parts entering model number here.

Frigidaire dryer makes noise when it tumbles

"spindle" would seem to refer to the rear drum bearing but teflon would describe the front. Have they both been done? Usually when one is worn out the other isn't far behind. Check the idler arm/wheel for wear. Also motors make a sound when the bearings are bad
