Maytag drum grumbling noise
« on: January 18, 2017, 04:09:14 PM »
It's about 10 years old, I don't know the model, but I think the problem is generic.

When I turn it on, the drum starts rolling with a loud series of thuds. The thuds get quieter, but I still hear them throughout the cycle.

I have a YouTube video so you can hear the sound.

Any ideas?

Sounds like the blower wheel.

I watched a video that had examples of dryer problems and four or five sounds. One sound was also similar to mine. The suggestion was replacing the Tumbler Bearings. You think that's what it could be? Or could it be both?

The Tumbler Bearing sound is at 1:07 and the blower is at 3:07
