wheel noise. need help please

Front wheel noise sound like knives scraping together. Its weight and speed related meaning. Jacked up w wheels off spinning rotors no noise. Also goes away when turning right. Has new rotors / pads but noise began about a week before doing the breaks. Been about a month now

You sure it's from the front? Since you did try to replicate the sound by turning it yourself and it didnt happen maybe it's in the rear or on the other side? Sounds almost like a problem I was having and it ended up being something in the rear break drum. But could be any of the other suggestions that where mentioned

Mine definitely seems to be coming from the front passenger side wheel. The noise seems very effected by the steering (when turning right it goes away) which makes me think it isnt coming from the rear. I also have disc brakes in the rear.
