First time on this beast. Dryer starts tumble and heat cycle. Short period after start weird noise starts and increases in intensity as unit runs. Owner says the dryer completes cycle and clothes are dry but the noise is aggravating. Suspect blower motor since it is DC and variable speed. Idler pulley is also suspect. Anyone had similar experience with this unit?

If the noise only occurs in a heat cycle but not an air dry cycle, replace the blower wheel, common cause for this symptom:  http://www.repaircli...6X10002/1089097

 

If the noise occurs in both heated and non-heated cycle, then it may be a motor issue but can be tricky to parse out.  In which case, I would replace both the motor and blower as a set:  http://www.repaircli...7X10008/1089101
