My dryer recently is making a horrendous noise whenever we try to run it. It's even worse because I'm in apartments and so I don't want to run it because I know my neighbors can hear it. Through some simple online research it seems that the problem could either be with my support rollers or my idler pulley? I'd really like to get some feedback on if these parts are available to be able to get it shipped and fixed ASAP.

Hi JC,

Its either the rollers, idler pulley, belt, or possibly the front pads. It wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the rollers, idler pulley, and belt while you have it apart.

When you click the link to each part below, there are HOW TO videos to replace the parts.

Here's the dryer drum roller for your model(order 2):

Here's the idler pulley for your model:

Here's the belt for your model:

Here's the bearing pad kit for your model you can order:
