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?
