My Profile dryer is...

My Profile dryer is making a constant noise. It sounds like metals rubbing together - almost a squeaky sound. I am afraid that something is going to burn out. As I have a very sick person in house and need to use dryer a lot I am hopeful you can help. Thanks

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Model #WPDH8866JOMV

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
