I agree with the reply where it could be a bearing or the belt tensioner pulley. Although typically the rear bearing will make a squealing or squeaking sound. There isn't too much that can cause noise in the drum itself. I have seen dryers where the belt was frayed or about to go make the noise you describe. I don't think it is the rear bearing, but the front glides, or bearings could be going out causing the dryer to run unbalanced.

Two items on two different dryers can make this noise. One is the belt tensioner pulley and the other is the bearing on a Frigidaire dryer.

    This is so true thanks try for the info. We can never be a know it all and I will hone the blade every chance I can. As it was a generic issue I went with the common two, That sound can also be caused by rollers along the back of the dryer and making this sound from contact with the drum. Kenmore has a recall on these bad boys because they used nylon to make them.

SOURCE: loud noise while running

you are gonna have to get inside the unit to determine whats defective...

if you want a parts breakdown i would recomend going to sears. com clicking on the section parts and service usually upper right corner, then click parts, u should be in their parts direct section enter you model number which u can find when u open ur dryer door their should be a sticker or tag somewhere that will list it.. find ur model or sometin similiar uually last digits designate color so it doesnt matter. you can see how the unit comes apart or get prices or part numbers on specific parts.


I would personally check the operation for defectiveness on your belt,rollers, idler pully, and possibly a seal if yor dryer has sometype of glides or seal.. hope this helps

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Loud noise when dryer is running.


My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.
