Growling from dryer GE DSRP513EA2WW

5 posts in this topic

Wife says the dryer is starting to periodically make a moaning/growling sound while drum turns.  Is this the bearing?

Your correct model number is DPSR513EA2WW

 

 

The noise will be one of the following:

 

- boogared up front drum glide pad

 

 

- worn drum rear bearing bushing

 

 

- or a loose/shifted blower wheel

My bet is the blower wheel is loose or cracked.

I think I found the problem.  I'm surprised the drum turned.
