Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
This is just a coincidence. There is a drum bearing that has worn down and needs to be replaced. Any local appliance parts house will have a kit to fix this that contains several wearable parts and there are many videos on youtube that show exactly how to take the dryer apart to do it. There is an axle screwed to the drum and it may or may not need to be replaced, so buy the kit that has all the parts that you may need to avoid wasting time once you take this apart.
