My Frigidaire Gallery Dryer works perfectly, just makes this teakettle whistling sound whenever the heating element kicks in. The sound is very constant and consistent when the heating element is on. I've never had the machine apart and not familiar with where everything is. Any thoughts??

Can you please make a video of it with your iphone or android and upload it here so we can hear it?

Thanks!

The high-pitched noise, kinda in the background. Thanks for the help!

Interesting, I don't think I've heard that before on any dryer.

Take the clothes out of the dryer, then pull the dryer out from the wall, then remove the exhaust hose from the back of the dryer, then start the dryer and see if that whistling is still there.
