Kenmore Dryer makes Noise Model 86671100

I have a Kenmore dryer that rattles when in operation. It has done this since I've owned it. It still works, I just thought I should fix it to make it quieter... before it breaks. 
The 'rattle' is more like a banging that repeats about 6 times per second in even intervals as the drum spins. It gets a little louder and softer with each 6 beats I described above as a rattle. 

Anyway, if this sounds vaguely familiar to anyone, I would appreciate some insight into what it might be. Please suggest what part I can purchase to quiet this old laundry room soldier.

Very few of the tubs are true to round. You stated it has made the sound since you've owned it. Observe and listen to see if you can determine the closet area to the noise. Usually moveable parts get louder over time. Your problem could be a number of things. I would start by adjusting the bottom leveling feet and be sure it is level front to back as well as left to right. Other items could be drum seal gasket bearing, rear felt seal, rear drum support roller, belt tension pulley, blower wheel, blower wheel housing, front drum glide bearing, shaft drum support roller, bracket for drum support roller, front ring bearing kit, pully on the motor, or even lose cabinet housing bolts.

I have a kenmore electric dryer #86671100 it seems no air is exiting the dryer it gets warm, and the drum rolls just no air passing. I checked the screen it is clear what next?


Open the door, keep lid switch closed.
start dryer, does the drum roll? if so then
your fan on the motor may have broken
if drum does not roll you have a broken belt
either way you need a tech.

Noisy dryer......when engaged...making squeaking/squealing noise.


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Rattle Burning Smell


It appears your blower fan has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Level the drier, check the drum for foreing objects, check your belt and replace if need to. Check your rear drum seal, and your drier idler pulley, and replace if need to.
