Just joined and looking for some help. 

 

I have a 3 year old LG electric dryer and over the course of a week or so, has started making some noise and shaking and gotten progressively worse.  It still turns and dries (for now). 

 

Here's a clip to give a sense of the noise and shaking that's taking place: 

 

Here's another I took a couple of days ago: 

 

What are your thoughts?  Would like to get parts ordered tonight.  Thanks!

Does it make the same noise on both heated dry and air fluff cycles?

There seems to be no difference  no matter what setting I've tried.

Sure sounds like a loose or stripped blower wheel.  Might also check front and rear drum supports for binding.  Also check the drum for defects, particularly at the seam.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I'm letting my wife dry the last load before it's coming apart for possibly 2-3 days.  Wll open it up in a bit.  i

Alright, alright, so I was trying to finesse it too much by narrowing down the noise in heat vs. no heat a la Bosch dryers.

Finally got it disassembled to reveal the blower wheel and this is what I saw:

Cleaned it all out and put it back together and fired it up and this is the result (empty):

 

 

Thanks for the input.
