    Thanks for the advice. However, I have already done that and the coin was not there. I guess it is stuck at the front of the drum or somewhere out of sight (and out of reach of a bent coar hanger).

    Thanks again

Could be something stuck down the back of the drum. remove the hose at the rear rhs viewed from the back and you can see down the back of the drum.

Not that easy.
remove top. remove water hoses.remove rear half of cabinet. to do this, undo securing screws along top flange, remove two screws at bottom sides hidden behind plastic plugs and two screws at bottom back. rear half of cabinet will then pull off.
remove heater - this is held with a 10mm nut in the centre which loosen and prise heater out.
you canb then see into the gap between tub and drum ane remove coin or whatever

Load banging noise as drum goes round


Possible that the bearings have worn out or that the drum main spindle drive has gone faulty. Your observation to check is important.
Also it is important that you manually turn the drum after removing power to confirm.
Also check the suspension of the drum and the alignment.

When the dryer is running it makes squeaking noises. what is the problem. what can be done to fix it.


There could be something stuck between the inner and outer drums, or (more likely) the main drum bearing has worn out. A third possibility is that one of the motor or idler pulleys is making the noise, but in my experience this isn't extremely likely. The best approach would be to remove the rear panel (don't forget to unplug first) and turn a few things by hand to see if you can identify where the noise is coming from. Remove the back panel of the drum to clear anything stuck between the inner and the outer. If you find that the drum bearing is worn, you should be able to undo the bracket holding it and purchase a replacement from an engineering supplies store or specialised bearing retailer.

It sounds like Coins have found their way inside and tumble loud. Any way to get them out?


Yea ... but is it probably better to let them tumble until they work their way out of the drum.

You will have to take the machine apart and remove the drum to find the coins. Remove the bottom panel to get access to the screws that hold the upper front panel on. Remove it ... remove the drum. Take lots of pictures as you take it apart.

Like I said, it may be better to let them go.

Thanks for visiting today.

Electric Dryer Model DCSR473EVOWW has loud scraping sound when drum turning .... sounds like metal on metal


There is likely to be something stuck between the inner drum and the outer casing. In my experience this is most commonly the wire from an underwired bra! (belonging to my wife!)

If the inner drum has holes in it feel the surface carefully all over to try to detect a wire or other object protruding into the drum. If you find something it can often be pulled free with a pair of pliers or pincers.

Kenmore dryer keeps making a ringing sound when dryer is on.


If the nois is kind of rattling noise, then it is usually caused by objects (coins etc.) trapped between inner and outer drum. If instead is an high pitched noise that gets louder when the machine spins faster, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

Iam hearing scraping sounds from my dryer.


Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. You need to replace the front drum bearing and glider pads. It's actually pretty simple to do. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. After removal just look at backside of dryer front around the inner door. You will see where the dryer drum has turned and wore a hole in the plastic piece above the dryer door. This piece is called the front drum bearing. Just unsnap this piece and snap in a new one. Be sure to replace the little plastic glide pads onto the top of the drum bearing before re-installing the dryer cabinet front. The front drum bearing and glider pads are sold seperately so make sure you have everything you need before you begin. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim.

Kenmore Dryer Model 417.80042990 problem


Could be just that. Thin coins like that can get into the drum baffles (those 3 "vanes" inside the drum that lift the clothes). It's a simple matter to open the top, remove the baffle(s) and clean them out.
