Front loading dryer making a'sandy, grinding' sort of sound

I have one year old Kenmore front loading dryer.(well, really it's been almost 13 month.... of course :( ). It just started to make a funny sound. Like there is sand inside. the sound is more noticeable nearer the top front of the machine.

any ideas?

Check the tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is next to the motor and the bearing may be shot.

6 years old - probably the wash tub bearings gone. Does the wash tub lift up and down from the front? sure sign bearings have gone. Would you drive a car at 70mph if the wheels were loose and floppy?
Not really a viable repair due to cost, and throwing good money after bad sort of situation, especially if your machine has a sealed wash tub which doesn't come apart.(welded Tub).
Cost of parts in this case would equal cost of new machine. Also, suspension, motor and heater will all be worn too. That's about the life span of machines these days I'm afraid!

Kenmore dryer


It sounds to me like a problem with the timer. Timers do not get repaired...they get replaced.
I hope this helps you out ....it is not always the best news to find out it is going to cost money but if it is not under warranty we really have little choice in the matter....Thanks for choosing Fixya and a click on the yes bow with a rating would be great if you can remember to on your way out of our site.

THANKS AGAIN!

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
