Whirlpool WGD4800XQ  Just thought I would update you since I am sure you lose sleep at night wondering...   ;)

 

I called the store and told them it didn't work.  The hum remains.  I was in the basement while talking to thim and the guy said he could hear it over the phone.  He assured me this is a fluke and this should not happen again and this is very rare.... and they swapped the dryer today....  Same dryer/model.....

 

.....Same noise

 

GRRRRRR #&!&!$**^!!!

 

And not only does it make the same noise, but there is a dull *thud* on each revolution ANNND... a consistant little squeak noise that does not match cadence with the revolution of the drum

 

Maybe I will try the Speed Queen that I was origianally going to get.  Just confused now.

 

 :(

I have found the old Amana style dryers to make these noises.

I should have came back and posted.  We had them come and get the 2nd dryer.  This time, I went back to the store and looked at a few others.  Ended up with a GE dryer.  Same money, a few more options and NO HUM!!  This one is serving us well and is whisper quiet.

Is whirlpool playing dumb on this one? The humming resonates through the whole house and even into the neighbors house. It's been over a year since this topic was started and they are still selling these hummers.
