<bow> Hello. My Whirpool dryer started sounding horrible today, and i ran to the parts place and was charged way to much for a drum kit with rollers, belt, and pulley, thinking this would fix my problem, but it's still making noise, albeit it sounds better than it did...
I want to say it sound like it's coming from the motor area, but of course i can't be too sure... I've posted a video of what it sounds like when i run it and when i turn it by hand.

On another thread, there was talk about running the dryer with out the drum to further problem solve, but that discussion did not go any further.
Please help... I've got 5 people i do laundry for everyday including two little ones that make a huge mess! :) Thank You!!!!!

Something could be rubbing on blowerwheel which is on opposite end of motor from belt pulley - if you Unplug and disassemble you can turn motor by hand to see if noise still exists - blower wheel accessed from back behind the box which houses lint filter

Yeppers...something is in the blower wheel...open the back and remove the filter chute as kdog said...prolly will only need to remove item to abate noise...
As every cockroach knows , thriving on poisons is the secret of success.

ok update... when i took off the lent trap i found a long lost earring, some bobbie pins, and couple of screws... nothing blocking the blower, but there was a screw at the bottom below... so that was probably the culprit... or the bobbie pins... anyways, all is cleaned out at it's quiet... thank you!
