Unable to take drum out to inspect issue

Currently the drum rotates and heats with really loud noise that begs ya to turn off the appliance. I am struggling to get the drum out. I have unscrewed the lint filter, taken off the top screws that keep the front door near the drum. I am unable to get down to the bottom screws or hinge. Whatever is keeping the front bottom part of the unit near the drum is just beyond my reach. I'm guessing the belt needs replacing on the approximately 4 year old unit and possibly some other unit. I did notice that the drum shows some rubbing on one section of the outer portion of the drum.

Westinghouse LD 605E Sensor Dryer It makes a loud banging noise when turning. Drum seems to be loose. Any ideas?


According to your description listed your rollers to the drum have failed. Your rollers support the drum and weight of clothes during rotation. They are not difficult to replace if your mechanically inclined. The model number of the unit seems to be incorrect, I am unable to direct you with parts or directions without more information.

Good Luck

If you rotate the pulley on the back of the drum does it rotate the drum? i have seen these snap the back of the drum off. also they can have issues with the controller board for the motors which would require a technician to determine.

Kenmore electric dryer making loud noise when running


It sounds like the belt that goes around the drum. I have a similar Kenmore, and I get that same rotational thumping noise. The belt is probably about to break or come apart. If you take it off and run it trough your hands, I think that you'll find either belt separation, or a bad spot missing a chunk.
Fortunately the belt is a cheap item. I've kept my Kenmore dryer running over 20 years now.

Very loud metal on metal screeching noise maytag model LDE8414ACE


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Loud metal-metal "screeching" sounds will eminate from the front bearing glides, (click on link below), for a picture of the glides. Link provided by www.repairclinic.com, they provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams.
You may also want to inspect for foreign objects in the front and rear drum seals and in the blower.
Drum rollers may sometimes cause loud noises also.

Loud squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

Pounding noise after wash and final spin


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.
