Rubber tired drum support rollers or drum felts have worn

examine rollers. at rear of drum

My Indesit IDL40 dishwasher, loud bang with slight burning smell but still working?


Any burning smell is not good. Indicates that something in there is too hot and perhaps melting something. Could even catch fire......

Could very well be that whatever is responsible for the noise can be causing the problemo.

Loud noise while running


Hello. Did you get an answer to this inquiry. Mine is doing the same thing. Smell of burning plastic; continues to fill and drain at the same time?!! I have to manually shut of water to stop the water and then manually set to spin so it will drain!

Burning smell and loud grinding noise


If that grinding noise sounds a little like gargling into a coffee cup, that's a defective magnetron.

When Dryer is on it makes loud banging noises almost like the cylinder is hitting the sides. It also seems to be excessively hot even set on low heat, and has an almost burning smell inside after running.

Squeeky noise


I own a Frigidaire Heavy Duty Dryer The Model # is FDE436RES1. It is 10 years old. When running the dryer it makes a very loud squealing noise although the heat and the dryer still work. Is this a belt or roller problem or does it sound like something else. It is very high pitched and can be heard throughout the entire home. I do not know much about dryer troubleshooting so your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
