I have read through several posts from people having problems with their dryers making this awful screeching noise, but I have not seen one yet that is my model #. I am wondering if you can possibly tell me what could possibly cause that? There have been times when I've noticed it makes the noise when the dryer is not perfectly level, but I've checked that and that doesn't seem to be the issue.
Also, is there a somewhat simple way to fix? I am a young(-ish) widow and I can probably take this dryer apart if I have detailed instructions? I would really like to not have to have someone come in and do something simple and yet charge me a crazy amount. You know?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
