It’s likely caused by a fan. Air circulation fans usually only run when the door is closed or the door switch is depressed. The fan blade could be hitting some built up ice or maybe it needs replacing.

You will need to check the tub roller wheels. This is a common noise when the wheel bearings start to ware down. They are not expensive, and you should be able to do this yourself. Good Luck Friend.

No the element is either good or bad,but did you check it for ground?if the element coil touches the outside metal box the heater will stay on all the time,this is why the high limit or thermal fuse will pop if the dryer is running to hot,could be heater is grounded,a blockage in the dryer or vent line or a bad cycling thermostat,the dryer is running to hot.just check the parts for continuity,remove at least one of the wires on the part you want to check,set the meter on 20k ohms,say you want to check the thermal fuse,pull at least one of the wires off of it,put your leads on it where the wires connect to it,if you see 1 on the meter the part is bad or open,if you see anything else but 1 the part is good or closed,this is the best way to check parts,there either good or there not,same with the element,it's good or it's bad doesn't matter what it reads unless it's a thermister or an oven sensor,then you need to go buy what it's reading at room temp.but like the element you either see 1 it's open or any other reading it's good that's it..then to check the heater for ground,pull off the wires to the element,touch one lead to one side of heater and touch the other to metal box if you get a reading it's grounded,check both sides of heater for ground

We had the same problem with the dryer a month ago. They had to replace the motherboard.

Call your service contractor.

You may have a faulty ground but that should have been caught by a good volt meter.
Depending on your supply issues, the board could have been damaged and replaced.
This link may help you out, if not ,contact your power co. or supplier.

Several things could cause that. Heating element, improper voltage, fuses and thermostats, timer, burnt wires, and motor are all possibilities.

breaker is tripping from faulty insulation allowing current to ground
breakers work on milliamp current so it requires a mega meter to check the insulation
call a qualified electrician to check the unit
