Hello. From what I’ve read this could be many things but in this case a part is most likely worn out. Im in the Jenkintown, PA area. Any recommendations for a repair person?

thanks,
joe

Hi Joe,

You don't want to fix it yourself?

You replaced the timer in it two years ago:

Thanks for the response Jake. This repair seems like it is more involved. I'd be good with taking the front panel off and inspecting but not sure if I want to get into removing the drum. Are there any videos available for my model for this type of repair?

Yes, there are videos that show you how in the part links below.

These parts below are most common to fail for this problem you're having. I've replaced many of these same parts for this noise problem.

Here's the rear bearing sleeve for your model you can order here(Video Included):
WE1M462 Rear Drum Bearing Sleeve


Here's the front bearing/glide assembly for your model you can order here(Video Included):
WE3M26 Dryer Drum Front Support Bearing


You would need to order the slides for it as well, as they don't come with the bearing assembly.

Order 2 of these: WE1M504 Bearing Slide

Order 2 of these: WE1M1067 Bearing Slide

Here's the front bearing kit(comes with the slides and belt and front bearing):
WE49X20697 Dryer Bearing Kit


Let us know how it goes if you decide to do it yourself, if still don't want to do it, possibly a family member of friend can help you do it.
