Question about LG DLE3777 Electric Dryer

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!!

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.

A new GE dryer

If the dryer is new, you can call for factory service. They will send a tech to your home at no cost. If the dryer is over one year old, you can try replacing the slides on the front of the dryer and the rear bearing, but if still in warranty any repair you attempt yourself will void your warranty. So let those factory trained people take care of that for you. Save your money and let GE pay. Call
1(800)GE-CARES. Funny number. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me.

Loud noise when dryer is running.

My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.

GE Profile Harmony dryer sounds like a jet plane about to take off


I too have a GE Profile Harmony (Gas) Dryer that had started vibrating and making a loud noise. I removed the screws that held the filter and grill to the inside of the door frame and placed a mirror inside so I could see down inside the fan. I found that a softner sheet had somehow gotten around the filter screen and had lodged in the blades of the fan and had collected a fairly large amount of fine lint. The combination of the dryer sheet and the lint had created an out of balance condition that caused the dryer to vibrate and make noise (the forward cabin door has been closed and we're ready for takeoff!) I used a bent coat hanger as a hook and using the mirror to aim the hanger, I hooked the dryer sheet and pulled it out through the hole for the filter.

I hope I'm not too late to help you if indeed this is your same problem.
