Entered Model # and problem into search engine on internet.Luckily i found your site.I entered my model#,brand,etc and your site was great with common causes. I watched repair video on your site.Video was excellent.I took off the front panel and one other panel,pulled out the drum and inspected the rollers.I also inspected the belt.Belt and rollers were fine. Noice was coming from blower motor area.I removed the blower motor cover and found that the blower wheel (squirrel cage) was hitting against the blower motor cover.Blower wheel was worn where it slides onto the blower motor shaft.Blower wheel should be D shaped and tight fit on shaft when new.Ordered part.Was able to track delivery and when it was arriving at my house.Installation went great. Problem Solved.I will definitely keep PartSelect on my favoites e-mail sites. I would recommend them to any friends.Excellent service from beginning to end. Thanks Again !!!!!
