Hello

Any help gratefully received on this

I have a ten year old Bosch Classixx tumble dryer. Working fine until this morning when it started making some nasty noises. It sounds like the drum is scraping on something at the front, like either something is caught behind the drum and scraping all the way round when it turns, or the drum isn't sitting right on the bearing and is scraping on the way round. A guess, mind you. Its making a swishing sound as it goes round

I would like to try and fix this myself, any help as to what it might be and how I might go about fixing it would be much appreciated

Sounds like either the rollers or rear bearing. If the rollers wear out the drum will drop down a little and make a scraping noise. You'll just need to take it apart and check them.
