Sounds like the support rollers are failing. There are 4 of them. Here is a link to the roller kit.

    Actually I tightened up all the screws on the machine after taking it apart first and now it is up off the blower house not scraping. But all of a sudden the heat is cycling on and off too much and clothes aren't getting dry. They were before I took it apart. Ideas?

    Check all the wiring connections in the area you were working. Also, check the thermostats for any lint that may have gotten on them.

SOURCE: Sears Kenmore elite quietheat front loading dryer not drying. Moisture builds up on the window inside.

It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Start switch buzzes and won't start the dryer

I had possibly a similar problem with a Kenmore 90 electric dryer. Sometimes pushing the start button would just make a buzzing sound, but the drum would not turn.
I ended up replacing the motor and so far it seems to start up smoother and quicker. In the process of taking it apart, there was a surprising amount of lint piled up in front of the blower intake. This is after the lint screen and not really possible to get to without taking off the lower front panel and then removing the duct to the blower. Perhaps it was dragging on the blower and causing the motor to overheat. Worth looking at first, perhaps.

Our 600 Kenmore Gas Dryer, makes a squeaking sound and the drum does not seem to turn freely!

Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Putty knife
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • WD 40
tyn-hp.gifGet what you need for every
project at
    • 1 Disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet or the breaker/fuse box. Be sure that the dryer is disconnected before you continue.
    • 2 Raise the top of the dryer. You will do this by inserting a putty knife into the crack between the top and front panel. Push against the spring clips to release. There will be one clip on each side of the dryer. Once the top has been released you can disconnect the wires to the door switch located on the right side on the backside of the front panel.
    • 3 Using a Phillips head screwdriver remove screws holding the front panel to the side panels. Pull the front panel away and lift off the bottom clips to remove it completely.
    • 4 Remove the belt from the idler pulley. The idler is located behind the blower/motor unit. When the belt is free you can slide the belt to the back edge of the drum. Lift it straight up to disengage the rear bearing from cradle.
    • 5 Pull the drum out through the front of the cabinet. You will be able to see the drum support ball on the back of the drum and the cradle holding the ball.
    • 6 Apply a generous portion of supplied grease or spray WD 40 into the cradle. In almost all cases, this will resolve your squeak. Once you have greased the drum to your satisfaction, you can reassemble the dryer.

Your dryer has a bad motor or something fell into blower wheel and not allowing motor to turn. The drum turns only one way because of locked motor. Will need to open top and then take front panel off to dismantle unit.

Hello there:
please use this troubleshooting list i have pprovided below to help troubleshoot the problem and let me know how this is going ok
If your dryer is noisy, check these: Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Rumbling noise in maytag gas dryer DG110 series 01

Unplug Dryer first: Page 3-11 of full service manual at link below will get front off. The most common solution for your problem is the blower wheel loose on the shaft. Hold drum and see if you can turn blower wheel (lower left plastic squirrel cage) separately. If you can turn the plastic wheel while you hold drum still, replace blower wheel.

Noisy dryer Kenmore Elite 70892 (gas-LP)..

OK, Kenmore,.... I don't work on many of them, but,....
Disconnect power. You have to lift the top to gain access to the screws near the top which hold the front panel to the sides. If it has a top lint filter, you will most likely have to remove the screws holding that to the top, then use a putty knife to release the spring clips at the top of the front panel. Sounds like the blower wheel is spinning freely on the motor shaft, requiring replacement of blower wheel.
