Sounds like the motor is seizing up from dry bearings and dragging enough to trip the breaker from excess current,open up the unit and remove belt off motor pulley and spin motor shaft,it should free wheel and coast to a stop,if not its getting bad

SOURCE: terrible noise coming from tumble dryer when drum

Is this a second "terrible noise question" in 12 hours or did I already answer this?

Check the front bearing surface of the drum, which rides on the inside of the front panel of the drier (It rides on a ring around the door).

If there are screws in the top, rmove them then pop it up - gently (so you dont damage the finish) pry the top up from the front panel. Remove the front panel (screws or spring clips or both) remove the front. The drum is now free to come out. check the surface that runs on the door. becareful you dont pull any wires off the door switch.

maybe you can fix it - maybe you should replace it. get parts ar local appliance parts store, FixYa.com advertiser or www.repairclinic.com

Hoover Tumble Dryer trips out


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Whenever this fuse goes bad it'll either trip the circuit breaker or the dryer wont heat. You can also check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means the fuse is bad and you need to replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Does the Bosch Tumble Dryer WTA3003GB/01 have a trip reset button


YOUR DRYER HAS A FUSE AND NEEDS TO BE CHECKED. SEE IF IT IS LOCATED SOMEWHERE WHERE THE POWER CORD COMES IN AT. IT SHOULD BE CLOSE TO THE MAIN POWER COMING IN OR MAYBE EVEN IN THE CONTROL PANEL AREA.

GE Profile Harmony Dryer DPGT750EC Drum won't turn & no heat


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
