DPGT750EC GE Harmony Dryer, as it heats up it starts getting really loud, like a sheet metal rattling sound coming from what sounds like the the rear right side of the unit. If I flex the the dryer cabinet by trying to lift the unit up it quiets down a lot.

I took the front panel off and from what I can see from playing with stuff, when I tap on the metal shield over the heating elements, it makes the elements shake and it sounds like the rattle I have. When I spin the blower motor I can see that the blower wheel wobbles a bit. Could that be off balance and causing a vibration thoughout the unit making tha rattle?

could be the blower wheel full of lint or perhaps rattling from the heating element... i would take off the drum and check rollers and idler etc first... if you can post a video to youtube it would be easier for me to give you an idea...

When the dryer first turns on, not hot, it is almost silent. As it heats up is when the noise starts quietly and gets louder and louder until it reaches full temp.

There was some lint in the blower wheel but didn't look too bad for being 5 years old. Cleaned all that out, haven't put back together yet to test. Was thinking of putting some sound deadening material around to help isolate the noise.

How hot does the shielding around the heating element get? Would it be possible to put sound deadening material on it, like the stuff used in cars to isolate noise and vibration?
