My dryer started making loud vibrating noises after a load was started. I did initial investigations on here, took the written advice I saw and replaced the drum glides and the bearing. I started the it up after parts replaced no noise, added some clothes and about 2 mins into the dry cycle the noise started back up. The idler pulley is fairly new and spun freely; am looking for other possible cause and trouble shooting I can do. Thank you in advance.

With new glides and idler, that really only leaves the rear drum bearing by default ==> http://www.repaircli...mber=GLER642AS3

Good video! That loud hum sounds like either blower or motor noise to me.

thank you. I did look at the blower before i did the video and it is clear of obstructions, fins need a little cleaning (did it a couple of years ago) but nothing major. Well I was hoping it wasn't the motor but oh well. Thank you again .

Did you look really hard at the blower wheel? Sometimes there is a hairline fracture between fins that causes it to spin off balance once it runs for a short while. I've experienced that issue on a gallery just like yours, and also an older maytag. It is difficult to spot, so u may want to try pushing or pulling on the fins as you go around the wheel to pinpoint it. Good luck!

I looked harder at the blower pushed, tweaked, pulled found nothing. However I decided to remove the belt from the motor and start the dryer on air fluff/no heat. I ran it for about 5 mins no loud noises. I then put belt back on the motor and ran it again in the air fluff/no heat setting for 5 to 10 mins; again no noises. I turned the selector to the low heat setting and the noise started,........ I then switched it back to no heat and the noise continues. anyone have any thoughts, I am now assuming (bad habit) that the blower gets warm and that when my trouble starts.
