My whirlpool duet dryer makes a roaring/vibrating noise when it heats up.

Model #GEW9200LW1

I have replaced the drive belt & all 3 drum rollers.

It looks like the only thing left if the motor?
Before going to the motor, make sure the blower wheel is free of obstructions and lint! I have seen this do exactly this type of noise. I have seen defective or not tight blower wheels do this too!

Russ, I have vacuumed the blower wheel & housing, but the dryer still vibrates.
I assume the wheel is affixed to the shaft properly? If so the motor bearings may be going bad and the motor will have to be replaced. There is nothing else there to cause this. SORRY

Replacing the motor was my last step. Thanks for the info.
