Last week, I started the dryer and as the drum turned, the dryer made a shrieking sound as loud as a fire engine siren. The noise has now changed to a loud rumbling, like a truck engine, whenever we turn...


What is the make and model? This could be the belt slipping, the idler pulley worn out, the fan may have come off the shaft to the motor, something stuck between the drum and the housing or the bearing on the drum. To check these things, lift the top off after you unplug it. The top clips onto the sides and the front and you have to lift hard to get it loose. If you pry on it be careful not to damage the paint.

Hi Willie Bolden
Sounds like your problem is drum rollers are in need of lubrication or replacement.
Go to the following webpage for a schematic of your dryer and parts.

Ge dptg750ec make loud rumbling noise after replacing blower


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Loud rumble sound, Vent hose vibration


That model of neptune dryer had a problem with the blower housings cracking. When the housing cracks, it binds forward into the blower wheel making a loud "rumble" noise and vibration. If you open the door and manually turn the drum and you hear a rubbing noise and feel alot of resistance, then you have a cracked blower housing and need to replace it. It is not an easy job to replace, so if your not familiar with dryers, you should have a technician replace it. Let me know if you have any further questions. shane

Loud rumbling noise with slight vibration


Normally the noise you hear is caused by the drum rollers having flat spots on them or needing lubricant.
If this is what is wrong It will make a kind of thumping noise.
When they need lubricant they will normally make a squealing noise also. You would lube the shaft and bearing area of the roller, using a good machine oil...something like "3 in One" oil.
