You could have something in the blower wheel. We're the lint filter is. Sometimes things fall down there when filter is out.

Thank you.  I'll check that as well. But you don't think it is the cracked bell or the cushion that may be the problem?

It is very noisy when it runs.

Could you describe the noise for us?
Is it a thumping noise, rattle or grinding noise?

Could you post a video of it on youtube so we could hear the noise it's making?

If the drum support rollers or belt idler are bad they would be noisy when you spin them by hand and/or have a lot of play in them on the shaft.

If a chunk of the belt is missing it may make a thumping noise, but I don't see to many belts that do that.

If the felt seal is bad enough is can cause a lot of noise because the metal drum will be rubbing on the metal of the dryer.

Hope you find our website helpful.

It sounds like a training is running. I will check the blower wheel. I don't think it is metal against metal though.

Could very well be something in the blower then.

If there is a lot of lint build up stuck to the blower wheel it will throw it off balance causing it to make a lot of noise.

I checked the blower wheel and it looks fine.  There were no lint in the compartment.  There were two small metal pieces outside the blower wheel compartment where the connection with the tube is (the tube that leads the air to outside the house).  The two small metal pieces are sections of a pull tab of a zipper.

I also realized that both the front and back tri-rings of the left support roller were broken. It looks like that it needs replacement.  Do you think this is the cause of the noise? 

Many thanks.

Probably so, do the wheel turn free?

No it does not.  I'll replace the support rollers, the belt, and clean up the blower wheel compartment. Will see if this works. Thank you.
