Hi Kelly,

There are two things that will typically cause a Whirlpool dryer to become noisy. One thing is the drum-rollers. This will typically be a roaring/rough noise but sometimes it will be squealing. You will have to remove the drum to access the rollers.

The idler pulley is the other thing that will cause a Whirlpool dryer to become noisy. Typically it will make a squealing noise. Depending on the model you may only have to take off the front but on some models you will have to remove the drum as well.
