Re: Noisy dryer

It is probably a motor bearing. My Lavatherm had a constant noise while running. It had a clogged drainage in the fan, causing water in one of the motor bearing and after som time the bearing worn out.

Re: Noisy dryer

I don't know if it is necessary to replace both at the same time since the roller on the left, which is above the heat chamber, seems to go out twice as quick as the other one. On this dryer I've replace several rollers, the glides at the front, the tensioner pully, the motor....and today I replaced the plastic blower fan. The dryer is 7 years old and most of the parts I've had to replace are due to poor quality parts in my opinion. I think they design replacement items in appliances for job security reasons. :-(

Re: Noisy dryer

I have this dryer and have had the same problem TWICE. I would be willing to bet, based on my experience that the support roller(s) in the back that are under the drum are bad. The good news is they are simple to replace IF you are at all handy! Just carefully remove the hex screws starting at the bottom front and progressing the the ones holding the drum in place (10 all together). Be sure to mark which connector goes in which spot for the door closure and the light (oh, good idea to shut off the power!!)

Pullin the drum forward will get you access to the drum support roller and its bracket. They are sold as a set (arond $20) and the replcements are a FAR better quality than the original!! The original has a hardened nylon wheel riding on a steel shaft - did NO ONE see THIS as a major wear issue?? The replacemnt part has a steel sleeve in the roller, much better.

BIG FYI, if you are replacing one, you SHOULD replace them both, otherwise you WILL be doing this again (wish I had done THAT)

Re: Noisy dryer

Might be what is called a jockey wheel, which is fairly cheap to replace

Re: Noisy dryer

Get specific on the noise and potential related causes. Then tell how to repair. "It's best to call an appliance repair service" is not the caliber of advice people expect from the web.

Re: Noisy dryer

The dryer is 14 months old and when I use it, empty or full, sounds like a brick is tumbling inside

Re: Noisy dryer

Some noises are caused by objects bouncing around inside the drum, or by loose, vibrating dryer parts. Scour the interior of the drum for loose objects. If the noise is being caused by defective parts-- notably a worn or defective drum belt, idler pulley, support roller, or worn motor bearings-- it's best to call an appliance repair service. If your dryer runs but doesn't tumble, this situation indicates that something is wrong with the switch, motor, belt, or mechanism that turns the drum. Call a repair service.

The spa blower on my spa is extremely noisy it works fine but it is way to loud to use

If you can access the blower housing, check for an obstruction such as paper, leaves, etc. It could need lube in the bearings/bushings. Also check for cracks in the fan blades (usually plastic).

Hi martyski39...

Your dryer drum is mounted in the rear with a bearing, most likely the bearing is faulty and making the grinding noise, or maybe two conditions exist.
1...Bad drum bearing noisy
2...Bad drum bearing noisy, and with play in the bearing allowing the drum to rub the felt seal away at the door making metal to metal contact.Check your door for obvious rub signs...
I will include a parts house webpage link where you can look at you "exploded" view of your dryer and order parts also.

Very noisy, getting extremely hot on top--will burn skin

If it is able to burn skin DO NOT use it!!! It can easily start a fire.
With the added noise symptom, i am guessing something broke loose and is either rubbing or conducting electricity. Either way, it should be opened up and serviced.

Asko t701 dryer makes exsessive noise and drum rotates slowly

Mine was very noisy. Then I found the impeller clogged with lint. I cleaned it and now the noise is gone.

Remove the lower panel (2 Torx T20 screws).
Remove the impeller cover (1 Torx T10 screw and 4 snaps).
Clean impeller.
Reinstall covers. Don't overtighten screws.

Model no. LDE8506ACE has a noise when running seems like maybe drum rollers or belt. how do I get to drum?

This link is provided by and shows parts breakdown/disassembly procedures, etc.
A faulty blower could also cause a noise during operation and as the motor slow rpms on stopping.

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Idler pulley
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

There are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations when worn out. Many times a dryer will squeak just a little bit as it first starts. This should go away in just a few seconds. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks. The blower wheel is always moving and lint is constantly going by it. If it’s noisy, it may have gotten clogged with lint, or it may be worn and need to be replaced. Clean out the area around the blower. If it’s still noisy, replace it.
Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out. Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If the glides are worn, replace them as a set.
Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.
The gas valve solenoid will make a buzz type of sound as it opens. The valve itself will give a little click as it starts the heat cycle, when ignition begins, and when the burner is turning off. The burner flame itself makes kind of a low-pitched roaring wind sound.

Thanks for using Fixya.
