GE Gas Dryer making rattling noise
I have a GE gas dryer that is about 5 years old. I began noticing a rattle when there was a heavy load in the dryer. Got worse as time went by, so I investigated on the web, and made the following repairs in this order: 1) replaced slides and front assembly that the drum sits on (still rattled), 2) replaced the rear hub assembly (still rattled), 3) took off the tension arm, cleaned up, sanded down, re-greased, and put back (still rattled, but much less), 4) bougnt new tension arm, pulley and belt, greased and installed (now it rattles more than ever!!) Any idea if there is an adustment that I need to make, this looks like a pretty simple repair (and I am getting really good at taking my dryer apart and putting back together, I'm sure the rattling is coming from the tension arm, but not sure what specific parts may be makeing the noise, Any help is appreciated.
