Our Whirlpool Duet dryer was working fine up until we moved it from or old house to our new house. Now it makes a grinding noise when it spins. Is this something I might be able to fix myself?

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Open the door on the dryer and look on the frame of the dryer for a tag that has the model and serial number listed on it and send me that model number so I can give you model specific instructions, thanks.

You probably just knocked the drum off track when you moved it, below is a video that shows how to take the unit apart so that you can look and see whats going on. You may need to replace the drum support rollers as shown in the video or the belt tensioner pulley, you will just have to tear it apart and look and see whats going on, but the video below will show how to do that.
