It depends on the make and model of the unit. Each is different. Can you tell me a make and maybe a model #?

What do we do to address thumping noise in Kenmore Elite HE4 Dryer?


It is probably one of the idler wheels it rotates on. Look for a flat spot and if you didn't replace the drum your self ask for your money back.

Dryer very loud. Louder than normal rumbling noise underneath. Still dries clothes okay, yet will wake a person out of a dead sleep now.


Pull off the back or shell of the dryer. It is most likely the idler wheels or pully that the drum of the dryer rotates on as it spins. The drum has a belt that goes around it and a motor turns the belt. One of the wheels bearings may have gone bad.
Good luck...

Worn dryer belt tensioner


Good day,
For the cost, it isn't worth not changing. If it's down, remove the drum and check the rear wheels as well.
P.S. If you remove the drum, after re-installing make sure the felt on the back of the drum doesn't double over for you. If it does, assemble then take a small thin screw driver and as you rotate the drum, roll it back in place.

Ineed to put drum belt on can u tell me how


Unplug dryer and shut off gas. Disconnect gas line. Tip dryer onto its front. Remove back panel. Unscrew and remove inside back manifold. Place belt around drum and fit into pulley wheel(s) on motor shaft. (There may be a spring loaded tension arm on one of the wheels. Install the belt on it so that it pulls the belt tight around the drum and pulleys.) Check friction gasket (that the drum rotates on) on manifold and replace it if worn thin. Install manifold. Install back panel. Reconnect power and gas.

I have a Maytag DE50 dryer and the drum belt broke. Anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to put the new belt on?


Ignore gas references if electric dryer.

Maytag dryer won't rotate after blower wheel replacement


Check the drive belt and belt tensioner. From the way you describe it, the belt is loose and with a load in the drum, it will not rotate due to belt slipping.

Noisy, wobbly Asko dryer


This could be the front drum support wheels. They are made of rubber and I just replace one that had broken up, causing the machine not to spin at all. (I replaced both while I had the machine apart as I'm sure the other one is at the end of its life too).

To get at it, I had to take the top and the back off of the machine (removing all screws) and then unhook the belt so I could pull the drum out enough to see the wheels. The wheels are bolted to the front plastic with a nut situated inside of it, so you will have to loosen that to hold the nut in place.

You'll need some torx bits of various sizes to do this job and reassembly takes some jiggling to line everything up. Took me about 2 hours all together.

BTW - if it is the belt , it is virtually the same procedure, but if your drum is rotating at all, I doubt it is the belt.

Roper Dryer won't spin.


From what I understand, it sounds like the idler "pulley" is broken. Upon receiving power to the motor, the belt inter-connects and ultimately drives and rotates the pulley and drum. The pulley is designed to guide and give "tension" to the belt when connected to enable the drum to "rotate and tumble".

The pulley is relatively simple to replace and can be purchased from your local appliance dealer for about $10 - $15. Depending on your "handy" skills, I would take the following steps to check your belt and pulley;

1. Disconnect the Dryer
2. Access the dryer cabinet/pulley by removing the front door (If your pull and clean fileter from top, remove 2 screws near filter. You may need a putty type knife to "slide and pop" the dryer open)

3. You may see the dryer belt already broken or disconnected, but take a look at the pulley and check for broken wheel, metal, chips/cracks, etc. Sometimes you may need to replace the pulley all together, but you may only need to replace the wheel part depending on the model of your dryer.
