Scraping Sounds in the Dryer

Scraping sounds in your Whirlpool Dryer

Objects such as coins, paper clips, safety pins, screws, nails or other small hardware can get caught in the seam where the drum meets the front or rear. Turn off the dryer. Look inside the dryer along the front and rear edges of the drum. Remove any objects caught in the seam.

Always check your pocket before washing clothing, to avoid foreign objects in the washer and the dryer. See your Owner's Manual for more loading information.

Listen to the video sound clip below for how a paperclip sounds when stuck in your dryer drum seal:
