My husband took the lower right panel in the back of the dryer off to check to see if the barings in the motor were worn out making the loud noise. the shaft of the motor spun without a loud noise as he turned it by hand but from the front of the dryer could hear a rattle of something loose. He slid his hand into the exhaust vent from the back and reached all the way through to the front where he could feel that the fan(blower wheel) was loose and turning free from the motor shaft (which revealed itself to be the source of the loud noise) got the part number and ordered the part from you and using the snap ring pliers to remove the old blower wheel put the new one on and now our dryer runs great and quiet. one web site that was helpful was fixitnow.com thanks for all your help
