Dryer seems to work fine, but has started an intermittent loud noise, sounds like a bearing going out but all seemed to spin freely and quietly. You just stop the dryer and immediately restart it and it goes away completely for a short period of time(anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes).

I have taken apart and check the following and all seems well.

1. checked drum rollers 2 front, 2 back
2. tension idler pulley
3. motor spins freely
4. exhaust fan spins freely
5. checked drum and exhaust fan belts
6. cleaned all lint out of machine including screen slot and exhaust fan and ports.

Is it a grinding noise or a squeaking noise? It it fast or slow? Got a model number ?
