Neptune Dryer rumbling/rubbing noise
« on: August 11, 2009, 11:23:17 AM »
  I have a Neptune Drying Center that suddenly started a rumbling/rubbing sound when the dryer is running.  Seems to be consistent with the drum rotating.
  I have read about the Maytag Blower problems and that sounds like it may be it.  It was suggested that the sound is worse at start up and when it is stopping.  Mine is quite consistent.
  Anyone else with experience with these Drying Centers?

Model MCE8000AYW

  I took the bottom apart tonight an found a bunch of heavy lint near the blower.  Cleaned it all out and everything else looked fine, so I put it back together and the noise is gone.

Be sure the genius who installed this drying cabinet did not use foil duct on back.  Bad ju-ju..

I still have all of my hair and most of my teeth, so maybe not so much :)

Bad Ju-Ju-
