Whirlpool Dryer, Model #LER4634JQ0

For some time, the dryer has been making what can best be described as a low-pitched rumbling/rubbing noise. It's not bad with small loads, but large loads drive me crazy. The rollers and idler pulley have been replaced, with no change. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? See the video below. Thanks!

Sounds like something is caught in the blower, Unplug the machine. Remove the lint filter and two screws. Remove the back panel and the lint filter housing over the blower Lift it up and slide it to the right. Be very careful. There's a lot of sharp edges. Look in the lint filter housing and in the blower housing.

Yes, I agree with Rick.

Here's the blower wheel for your model:
WP694089 Blower Wheel


When you click the part link to your blower wheel you will see a HOW TO video of how to access that blower wheel to check it.

Make sure you unplug your dryer first!

Let us know what you find.
