TUB ROLLERS

Tub rollers are the most common cause for a noisy Whirlpool dryer. Tub rollers are what the tub rolls on and when they are bad the dryer will make a roaring or squealing noise.

To check the tub rollers, first unplug the dryer then take the lint filter out and remove the two screws that are under the filter. Then pull the top forward and lift up on it. The top should lift up and once up remove the two screws inside the case that point forward the front. Then lift up on the front and move it to the side. Now remove the tub by unhooking the belt by pulling the idler pulley toward the, this should release the tension from the belt then you should be able remove it. Then the tub just slides out toward the front. Once the tub is out, you should see the two tub rollers then spin them fast by hand. If one of them doesn’t turn smoothly or is noisy when you spin it, replace both of them. Tub rollers can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.com.

IDLER PULLEY

The idler pulley is another cause for a noisy Whirlpool Dryer. This is the pulley that keeps spring tension on the belt.
