Dryer suddenly very noisy and vibrating/rumbling
My 8-month-old Maytag dryer model # MGD5500FW0 suddenly became much noisier than usual and was vibrating perceptibly. It’s somewhat rumbly and raspy sounding. It suddenly stopped about 10 days (probably a dozen cycles) later.
I took a video while it was doing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmFfmjOA...
I had scheduled service for it, since it’s under warranty, and of course the problem went away the day before the tech was supposed to come. The tech didn’t show up for the scheduled appointment anyway (sigh). They haven’t contacted me at all, and I’m trying to decide if I should reschedule. If there’s something that should be fixed, I definitely want to do it under the remaining few months of my warranty, but I’m not sure what they would do if they come when it’s not manifesting the problem. Given that it takes almost two weeks to get an appointment, and it seems to fix itself after a while, I’m not sure how much luck I’ll have getting a tech here at the same time it’s doing it, should it happen again.
I’m pretty handy and don’t mind taking it apart, but I have no idea what I might look for since there’s nothing happening right now. Or maybe I shouldn’t even worry, but in my experience there aren’t many mechanical problems that just appear once and go away forever.
So - is anyone able to identify what might have been wrong from the video, and why it might have “fixed itself”?
