Mailbag: Whirlpool Dryer Noise

Richard wrote:
I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer #LGR4634E00 that is only 2 years old. The stupid thing is making a grinding noise that sounds as if it is coming from the bottom/back of the drum . I removed the back and top and couldn't see anything. With the dryer running I can pull the drum toward the door and the noise stops. Could this be the rollers? I have tried to find a drawing of this model to what type of rollers or bearing it has but to no avail. I need this fixed so my wife can get back to work!! Cna you give me some advice, I heard you were pretty good at this stuff!!!!!!

First problem is that you wrote down the model number wrong. Read The Ten Commandments for Reading Appliance Model Numbers. I believe you mistook a 'Q' or a '0' when you wrote down your model number--the correct number for your dryer is LGR4634EQ0. With a good model number, you can easily find a parts breakdown diagram for your dryer.

Based on your problem description, the problem could be the drum rollers, a worn plastic bearing ring at the front of the dryer drum, or something caught in the blower chute . You'll need to remove the drum to check all these things out. A genuine Whirlpool dryer repair manual is definitely worth a few shekels and will pay for itself over and over again.

Awwite, go whup-up on that bad boy.
