Finding the source of this noise in this Bosch dryer was tricky. Judging by the sound, the noise had to originate from either the motor or the blower wheel. The problem turned out to be the blower wheel. The noise was only heard in a heated dryer cycle. Apparently the heated air would deform the plastic blower wheel just enough to make it contact the blower housing while rotating.
Here are the part links to the drum rollers and blower wheel that I used to fix this dryer:
This customer called in saying his washer was leaking but it was from somewhere up top. He had even put the washer on blocks and knew for sure that the leak was not from the bottom. This service call is a great illustration of the Golden Rule of Appliance Repair: Never, ever trust customer diagnostics. This customer has a PhD in mechanical engineering. If you were ever going to trust customer diagnostics, this may have been one of those times. Watch as I show the customer that the leak originates from the same exact place as do most leaks in this washer: from the pump down below in front.
The door on this dishwasher has a couple things going on with it: it falls down heavily when it's opened and the front panel is separating from the rest of the door. The customer called me in to assess the problems and give an estimate for the repairs so they could decide whether to repair or replace the dishwasher. Watch with shock and awe as The Appliance Guru immediately hones in on the problems with the accuracy and precision that only his calibrated eyeballs can bring to the job!

This customer contacted me at 2AM Saturday morning of Memorial Day Weekend via the Service Call Request form at the homepage of my website, www.ApplianceGuru.com, and I was there in just a few hours. That's SOP for The Appliance Guru!
The customer was at his condo by the golf course for the weekend and the washer in his Frigidaire stacked laundry unit wouldn't pump out. That can really put a wet towel on a vacation! I disassembled the pump and found a golf tee jamming the impeller. In the video, I described it as "foreign object" because the customer didn't me want to say it was a golf tee in front of his wife and get him trouble. Vacation and marital harmony both saved by The Appliance Guru!
Customer called with a complaint that her 7-year old Maytag Neptune MDE9700AYW dryer would hum when started then click off. Also said the drum would not turn by hand. What could the problem be? The answer may surprise you!
Epilogue: Turns out this is not covered under warranty. The failure occurred right at the seam where the drum was welded together. Total fee to replace this drum, part and labor, is over $400. I recommended that the customer purchase a new Whirlpool dryer with a lint filter on the top panel and no electronic controls, just knobs and switches, available at Sears for less than $500. She's going to go that route.
