GE Dryer DHDSR46EE1WW Grinding Noise
Posted 04 June 2011 - 09:32 AM
The video above shows my GE electric dryer making this noise. I have pulled it apart and put it back together. One of the glides on top of the door is cracked, but stays in place. The belt is intact, though has a slight bit of fraying on on side edge. I checked the blower wheel and it spins freely when the belt is disconnected but does not hang and does not rattle. The plastic on the bearing on the back of the drum does move back and forth if I move it. I can attached a different video if someone needs to see that. The drum does still turn but the noise is quite loud as you will see. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? Thank you in advance for your help!!
The model number is DHDSR46EE1WW. Thanks again!

Thank you for your reply! The above link shows the drum spinning without the belt. The knock at the very end is my hand slipping inside the drum Is the motor still likely the culprit then I take? If so, I will buy from your site!
This dryer was $350 that I bought 5 yrs ago. Do you think it is wise to spend a little over $100 to repair this one, or should I try to find a dryer on sale that is brand new? Just wasn't sure if you thought it would be worth putting this money back into it. Thank you so much for all your help!

Use the time-dry without heat to do so.
From your 2nd video there are two long marks on the drum. This seems that the drum has been touching something while rotating.

It is most probable that you either have a faulty motor or the blower wheel is loosened.
