SOURCE: LG dryer DLE2101W stacked on

Hello welcome to FixYa. The service of LG dryers is mostly from the front, with some at top, but you may have an easier time by taking it off the washer, its your call. How is the dryer mounted/secured to the washer ? Have you ruled out it isn't simply "bouncing" thus creating a tapping noise on the washer top ? If you have and the noise is from the front left, it is either a leveling leg, component of the drive assembly, or the blower/exhaust housing, you'll need to get inside to investigate. As far as tear-down/repairing most LG dryers is essentially the same. If you hang tight I will put together a generic LG step by step "how to" with pictures that will guide you through it. It is all from the front...virtually nothing is done from the back anymore. I'll wait for you reply to see if you're OK hanging tight since I won't have access to my PC until morning ( approx 8am mtn time ). Regards, Macmarkus :)

Lg dle2101w is making a loug hum and rattle but works fine

the hum is usually a bad motor? perhaps u hear what u think is a hum? the rattle can be due to bad bearings, for example transmission spin bearings, tub thrust washer bearing, loose belt or worn belt.

My LG Wahining machine is making a rattling noise and will not spin or drain.

For the washer to spin, it must first drain the water out of the tub. Since you are hearing a rattling noise, and your washer will not drain, most likely the problem is the drain motor itself. The impeller wears out on the shaft, and start to wobble, and make a vibrating/rattling noise.

How to change a belt on a LG Dryer - DLE2101W

UNPLUG the dryer. Take the front kick panel off. Take the door off. Lift the top and rest it on something. Remove whatever is in front of the drum. Remove the drum. While you have everything apart check for worn pulleys and rollers. Place new belt around drum, and replace drum. Make sure belt is around the tension pulley. Replace everything in reverse order. Plug the dryer in and you should be ready to go.

My LG over the range microwave makes a rattling noise when I am cooking. The sound is not there is the item I am microwaving is heavy.

This may sound a bit nuts, but remove the glass tray and support ring. Clean the wheels and ring. Also clean the glass and microwave surface where the wheels run. Any tiny bit of debris will stop the wheels from turning, and make a rattling noise.
If that doesn't help, you may need a new turntable motor.

Dryer is making a rattling noise when in operation. Dryer is eight years old of so. Never heard this noise before.

Rattling could be anything from a bad idler or support pulley or coins in the vanes. If you can hear it you can find it pretty easily.
