My Amana home dryer LE8317W2 is working but once it gets going for about 5 min it starts making a really loud kinda growling/droning noise. Any thoughts on where I should start first if I attempt to repair it myself? I've attached a video I hope the sound comes through.

Hi,

Unplug your dryer, then take the belt off the drum and remove the drum then check all these parts below to see which is making that noise. When you click the link to each part you will see a video on how to access them.

Also after you unplug the dryer, you can remove the belt from the motor pulley and plug the dryer back in and start the dryer, that will run the motor and blower wheel only, and see if it makes that same noise, if NOT then your motor and blower wheel are NOT the culprit.:)

Drum Glide Pad WP37001298

Drive Belt WP40111201


Blower Wheel 56000
