Estate EGD4400wq0 dryer is starting with loud noise
« on: May 20, 2015, 08:15:43 AM »
This is a fairly new dryer that I bought a couple years ago.
Now, it is making loud noise as soon as press the start button. I even opened the covers to look it, did not find anything obviously wrong (belt is attached tightly, drum spins). could anyone help me to PD the issue?

Thanks,
Sam

  So, it does not start tumbling when you start it? Is the noise coming from the motor area (lower right side) or from the timer? Tape the door switch closed, start dryer and turn drum CCW by hand. Will it start? This dryer has one of those cheap junk timers that fail all the time so that is a good possibility.

Hi Eric,
The noise is unbearable, it sounds like things turning but scratching on something. I am able to turn the drum by hand, I will tape the door switch and turn it on again with a headphone on me LOL. and let you know the outcome (I bet it starts).
Why a timer could cause to make noise like that?

Might be some coins stuck between drum and front bearing that they say is no longer available that i find hard to believe.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-front-bearing-and-3406129-ap3131525.html Watch the video how it comes apart. That part changes to a # W10663510 if needed.

That makes lots of sense, when I first opened it up, did discover some coins on the bottom.
I tested it again by holding the door switch, the drum does spin but makes loud Grinding sound.
Should I take the drum completely out?

Run the dryer without the belt on it.This will eliminate,drum rollers,idler pulley and front bearing or something caught in there.Run without heat on for a short time anyway.If you still get noise something could of fell down lint chute after the filter was removed to clean.Very common on this dryer.To get to that its like in the video of changing blower wheel.The part # of that is 694089 and check all the rollers and idler pulley when you have it apart for noise.
