This sounds like one of the drum front plastic bearings has come out or broken, there can be as many as 4 or more of these bearings depending on make, you would need to replace all bearings regardless off wear.
Again, depending on make, this can be quite a job to do ,and on some makes it involves a strip down.Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Dryer is making a noise that sounds like something is loose in the drum it is still drying very loud at first then gets quieter as it goes.


The dryer drum rides on a center bearing (plastic on metal mount). In time the plastic bearing disintegrates and the ball begins to rub the metal mount. If left like that after a while the ball will be cut in 2.

Another thing that goes south is the plastic slides that the drum rides on in front.

What is a glider? My dryer has started making some loud noises and the cloth like material that goes around it in the inside has ripped into shreds. Is this what is causing the loud noises? How and where...


The gliders are a piece of hard plastic that set on the frame, the peice that holds the drum, their is 4 of them and they are on top of the frame, the felt liner is what supports the bottom of the drum on the fram.

The dryer makes a loud noise and also a rubber smell develops after a 1/2 hour of use


My dryer did the same thing. I had to replace the front support glide assembly and needed 4 teflon glides.
The front part of the dryer runs over this plastic piece seen here upside down.
00087335.jpg
this part is about $50 CAN there are 4 plastic or teflon glides that fit into this.
My dryer had worn through the teflon glides and start wearing away this piece.
My dryer is a GE front load dryer. And I did get a burning smell because the dryer was wearing away the plastic. After the teflon strips wore down.
Hope this helps

Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE making horribly loud noise while drying


Solution for the Maytag model is most likely to replace the blower wheel. Remove the two screws on the front panel (just a couple inches off the floor) and swing the front panel up to allow you to unhook the top side of the panel from the clips at the very top of the front panel. You do not have to remove the wires, just set the front panel to the side. Blower wheel is at the lower left. The old wheel most likely no longer has a D shaped hole to match the motor shaft, and spins freely. Remove cover. Replace the wheel part number Y303836 for a LDG7304AAE which is held on the shaft with a spring type clamp. Reassemble. Not really very hard to do. On a difficulty scale or 1 - 10, I'd rate it a 3.

Try checking the back, there is a plastic tub that is connected to the drying system and it can get clogged with lint etc. It will also cause the unit to give you longer drying times. It is a poor design. You can also pop off the lid to get a better look but make sure you unplug the unit.
