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.

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. :-(

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)

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

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.

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

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.

Why is my Frigidaire dryer model #FER86600ES0 getting extremely hot on the top and back?

Good afternoon friend, thanks for the post!

I see from your post that your Frigidaire dryer is getting extremely hot on the top and back. Have you checked to make sure that it is getting proper ventilation? I would verify nothing is blocking your dryer from ventilating which could be causing the appliance to heat up. If it continues to heat up I would reach out to a technician to come diagnose and repair your dryer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Heating extremely fast and smells like burning rubber

If it is a belt driven dryer the belt may be spinning on the motor shaft and it may be bad. Hence the burning rubber smell. Have it checked.

Washing machine makes a loud vibrating noise when spinning and sprays grease onto washing

It sounds like the main bearings have failed, try turning the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is niosy, then the bearings have failed.

The dryer quit running and became extremely hot

Hello DickandKendra! You've already done the difficult part, which was to find and locate the faulty thermal fuse (switch). Now you should be able to get a new one and replace it pretty easily, just be sure to unplug the dryer before you start taking it apart, etc., but you already knew that.

If you need to determine what the replacement part number is for your particular dryer is, please go to, since you didn't post your model number, I can't provide you with the part number directly. No problem, you can find it by entering in your Dryer model number and then click on the links that show up to locate the thermal switch. There will also be a line drawing of your Dryer, so you can search by the picture, etc.

I think that possibly that the dryer motor has failed and that is why the thermal fuse went out, but you should probably just replace the fuse 1st to see if that's the only issue. When you replace the fuse, just run a drying cycle without heat, (only air fluff, etc.) so you can see if the motor starts and runs. If it does, then the thermal fuse was the problem, if the motor doesn't run, you've got a faulty motor and it'll need replacement.

Of course, if you're comfortable with doing a temporary bypass of the thermal fuse, you can also check the motor function before you order and replace the thermal fuse, to determine if the motor is faulty. The temporary bypass is ONLY to be used to diagnois if the motor is good or bad - DO NOT leave the thermal fuse bypassed, as it's purpose is to prevent a dangerous overheating problem that can cause a fire. This is only to be done as a temporary measure to determine what caused the thermal fuse to blow!

This will allow you to determine if you want to spend the money and time needed to replace the motor and thermal fuse, or weigh those costs against purchasing a new dryer - your option. However, if the dryer is still in good condition, it will cost much less than buying a new one, even with the cost of these couple of parts.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Loud noise during tub draining

If it is only niosy when draining, then I would check the pump or filter for something caught in it.

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.
