Question about Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

When operating, dryer makes sound like metallic rubbing

Dryer works OK but the rotating drum seems to be making sound like it is rubbing against something metallic. Sound seems to abate after dryer has warmed up.
Don't have manual and would like to know how to get at the inside of machine to see the belts, etc.
Have taken the back off and cleaned wiring area of dust, etc. Nothing appears wrong here?
Thanks

    gasket/seal that appears to keep drum from rubbing against frame/housing. Drum belt is fine and motor is fine. Just seems like drum is binding up against frame/ housing, like it needs lubricant or something around the outer rim of drum. Drum moves up and down side to side, loose like something is worn that should keep it stable.?????

    On my bicycle, the back tire has a rubbing sound only when I move tire forward. It sounds like it is coming from the metal piece in center of tire.

Bosch WTA 3510 uc/13 FD 8203 compact dryer is very loud. Motor is okay. Just changed the main pully. Belts are okay. Still is a loud rumble when operating. Any ideas? Rear bearing appears to be ok


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

Some unkpwn blackness appeared all over the inside of the dryer, it looks permanant. How can I remove this blackness?


That black stuff you see is probably from metal rubbing against metal. Check the front of the drum and make sure it rides on either thick felt, or nylon slides. Let me know, Ok?

When it rotates it gives metal banging sound what is the reason?


Hi,

Make sure dryer is level on the floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.
Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight.

Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)


Good Luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated

DRUM MAKES NOISE WHEN TURNING ALMOST LIKE IT'S RUBBING AGAINST SOMETHING INSIDE THE MACHINE. SOUNDS LIKE DRUM IS TRYING TO STICK AT SOME POINT OF ROTATION.


check that all the support springs are connected and one is not broken. It is also possible that something is between the drum and the frame.

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing


Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.

My GE Profile DPSE810 Electic Dryer has started making a scraping noise when the drum rotates. What could be causing the scraping? It makes the noise even if I take out all the clothes and there is nothing...


Told by several GE Service Techs that the noise is normal metal expansion & nothing can be done. Anyone else have this issue?
First dryer in over 40 years we ever heard this type of noise.

Makes loud sound when spinning - seems like off track


The bearing is worn and now the drum support is rubbing against the metal mount. I do not know what type of dryer you have but my web page covers a lot of material. The dryer that is easiest is mentioned here, plus I have pages on your dryer as well.

GE GAS DRYER DDE7500G


Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing
