Kenmore 110 97282100 sounds like a Model T starting up
« on: October 09, 2020, 03:00:44 PM »

This happened suddenly, put a load in and started it up and it sounds like a Model T.  It doesn't shake or vibrate excessively.  My son cleaned the lint trap before starting and the top of the dryer gets a lot of junk stacked on it so it is not impossible that something fell in to the lint trap recess but that's just for informational purposes.  Any thoughts?  Here is a link to a video with the sound:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cYUHgZlwFHL7ZiSbbUjpWsn83ZV7Osou/view?usp=sharing  Thanks.

There is either debris in the blower or the blower wheel is broken. It sounds like the noise continues for a short period of time  after the drum has stopped moving, so I would guess that the blower wheel is broken or the blower hub is stripped.

Suggest you check to see if the drum moves up and down very much. If no excess movement then the blower wheel is likely the cause in that it is broken. Not too bad of a job to fix but more of a problem to get at it.
