Question about LG DLE3777 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

GE Dryer DPSR483GA2WW too noisy

The dryer is 8 years old. It started getting noisy about 1 month ago. It is a vibrating type noise. It is not a squeeking noise as someone else had reported. I checked all the things that cause a squeeking noise and they seem to be ok. I asked a tech repairman to look at it. He said he thought it was the motor. The motor bearings. He quoted me $300 to repair it. For that price I thought I could buy a new one! If it is the motor I would like to change the motor myself but I do not know how to get into the motor area. Any suggestions on the cause and how to get into the motor area?

Remove the rear panel from the unit. This should expose the motor, drive belts, and the drum bearings. Now turn on the unit and your may be able to determine where the noise is coming from. Keep your hands away from moving parts and electrical connections!!

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

Dryer vibrates with exhaust hose attached


Doubt this has anything to do with the drum replacement. Your model has an independent variable speed blower motor (not linked to the motor which turns the drum) and speeds up when it senses a vent restriction. You may have a problem with the vent motor or blower wheel, or just a vent restriction issue.

Noisy dryer


i had same problem with washing machine. i found out it was the stone inside which holds it down while it spins. The screws or nuts or what ever is holding the stone could be loose.

Or it could be the nuts or screws of the actual drum that spins that got loose when you moved the machine
