Hi,

This dryer is only a few months old - GE 7.5 cu. ft. Capacity Front Load Gas Dryer with Steam.
Yesterday morning I noticed a buzzing sound from the dry that occurs every now and then. Here is a video / audio of the sound in progress and then turning off. The buzzing is a bit loud.
Is this noise normal or is something struggling inside the dryer?

Thanks!

Hi,

I don't hear any buzzing, it sounds normal to me.

Am I hearing stuff... :) probably cause my ears are tuned to the buzz...

The video / audio file is about 25 seconds long - in the first 11 seconds the buzzing sound is present, then at about 12 or 13 seconds the buzzing stops (and sounds like some relay or actuator toggles within the dryer.

LOL, I may not be the best person to listen, I have Tinnitus, I always hear buzzing in my ears.

Hopefully another tech can listen to it and see what they think.
