My dryer is running very loud. I have it apart and do not see anything broken or worn out. What should I be looking for?

Clay for Model Number 087572601

ANSWER Hello Clay, Spin all of the rollers and make sure they spin freely. Make sure nothing is in the blower wheel. Make sure the belt has no obvious wear such as being frayed or thin areas where a pulley may have spun in it. Look around the outside of the drum for evidence of anything contacting the drum during operation. Spin the motor to check for a bad motor bearing which you can feel in the pulley when spinning it by hand. Otherwise, just look for anything that looks to be out of the ordinary, (discoloration, wear fragments on the main base, etc.).
