Question about Magic Chef CYE4000AWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise then quits working.

I have taken it apart twice and there's some kind if metal piece at the back of the motor around the shaft -when I move it, it snaps into place and the dryer will work again- but it still makes the loud buzzing noise with an occasional loud click and then after awhile stops completely. When I try to start it again, it makes a humming noise but the motor doesn't turn over.

Sounds like the motor's done. That thing is probably the start-run switch. Not worth trying to fix on an old motor. I've found dryer motors to be fairly generic, you should be able to find a replacement. I use Repairclinic.com when I can't get parts locally.

Kenmore Dryer 110 is making a loud squeaking noise.


Only a few things will make that noise. The squeaking is caused by a moving part having trouble turning while rubbing against a fixed part.
  1. The idler pulley is worn
  2. The drum support rollers are hard turning on their shafts
  3. The felt seals at the front or back of the drum is worn allowing metal to metal contact while turning
  4. An article has fallen into the housing around the blower wheel and the wheel is rubbing on it.
Listen for the frequency of the sound. The drum rollers and drum felts will squeak at the frequency of the tub turning. The idler pulley turns much faster as does the blower wheel. Knowing this will help pin down the cause.

My Kenmore 80 series quit working suddenly after removing a piece


This puppy needs help. You're going to have to take it all apart. Check all roller wheels, find heat resistant grease. Maybe graphite will do. With the belt off, spin the motor by hand, it should roll freely. If not, first feel for worn bearings by trying to move the motor shaft up and down. I've never lubed a dryer motor. Replace it if you can! These motors are very generic, keep your eyes open for replacements by the road if that's your thing. Sure works for me. When re-assembling check the front sliders for damage or misplaced felt, if your unit doesn't have wheels there. The drum should not rub stuff it's not supposed to. Make sure you are putting the belt on right. And of course check the fan area for loose stuff.

Loud Squeaking Noise kenmore gas dryer 80 series


You need to change your drum rollers. To get to them you take the dryer apart from the front not the back. There are 2 screws where the filter goes in on top. Then pull the top toward you and up. Then remove the 2 - 5/16 inch screws on each side of the front panel about 2 to 3 inches down. Then pull the front up and out. Then you will see everything. Replace the belt, drum rollers, and idler making sure to oil each as you re-install them. Then put back together and your on your way.
