A loud clunking noise - the vent/filter check light came on plastic Looked in the vent and broken parts which looks like a fan or something. I cannot find online any pictures of parts to point to. The part is definitely broken. Where can I find/buy a new part and can you talk me through to replace the part?

    I believe it is the cooling fan at the back of the dryer that broke. Is this something I can fix even if I can find the part for it?

Yes, your right, it is the blower fan for the dryer, something may have gotten down the filter element housing and broke it, or just from heat and time.
Yes, you can fix it if your somewhat mechanically inclined.
It is not a hard job, but must be done correctly.
I will send you a webpage with some parts choices.
I do not know where you location is so I cannot send you to the direct webpage.
Please rate me

SOURCE: loud screeching. looks like drum bearing is broken

Welcome to the world of appliance repair. A dryer is a good place to start. Check for parts and help, it's a good site. You're going to have to take the dryer all apart. The trickiest part is the belt. Note how it goes, or you're doomed. While in there, vacuum all the lint, it's a fire hazard, and gets into places it doesn't belong. Use a high temp grease on the roller shafts, and replace the belt while you're at it, they are cheap. The glides and felt need to be in top shape, they keep the dryer from eating clothes. On some models you need to pop the top. Use a putty knife to push the spring catches at the front corners. Inspect all around for bearings and things that might wear out.

SOURCE: I have a loud squeaking noise from a GE electric dryer drum..

I am not sure what plastic part you have, but there should be no small plastic parts in your dryer drum or at least not the ones I have worked on before.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Hi My bissell proheat 2x 9500 is making a loud noise when the brushes are moving. I replace both belts and cleaned the brushes. Can you think of anything else it could be.

Hello there,
Try using other brush attachments, as broken bearings in a brush attachment will cause noise. If these troubleshooting techniques do not work, you may need to service the engine.
Remove the filter and bag of the machine and make sure that they are not clogged or full of debris. Clean any filters according to the instructions for your model or replace the bag. Excessive debris will make the engine run noisily.
Inspect the hose of the vacuum and remove any large debris that may be clogging the inside of the tube. Large amounts of dust, as well as stones or other hard materials that bounce, may cause a loud noise in the engine.
Remove the housing that conceals the engine of your machine and inspect the fan for damage or clogging. Remove any dirt or debris that may hinder the movement of the fan. Inspect the fan for any damage such as bent or excessively sharp blades. Replace the fan blades as needed; contact your vacuum manufacturer if the fan is damaged. The replacement part will include instructions.
Tighten the fan with a ratchet if it is loose on the assembly. A loose fan will make a rattling sound as the motor revs.
Wipe dirt and dust from the frame of the engine. Large quantities of dirt or dust around the motor can cause it to overheat, which can cause vibration and loud noise.
Look for corrosion around the engine. If the engine is corroded, it must be replaced.
Grease the bearings of the engine if you hear a grinding noise from the vacuum. Greasing is often performed through ports in the engine, or by removing the bearings. However, the actual greasing method is model-specific. Consult your owner's manual or send the vacuum to a service professional for this service.
Inspect the inside of the vacuum cleaner for other worn parts or broken pieces. Worn or broken pieces can cause loud noises to occur. Remove the broken part and order new materials from the vacuum manufacturer or take the machine in for service.
Hope this information was helpful to you. All the best. Elect_Comp

I think you should have reported the matter and got the replacement for the damage as it seems that the inner flow of the vent is choked.The vent could have alttered inside by the damage and so the misalignment has caused the aero dynamics to change resulting in the noise levels.
If you can track back the cold airflow vent and also the fan blowing through the cooling pipes , it will indicate the origin of the noise.
If the cooling fins are damaged or the vent blocked then decide if the warranty still holds, if so get the priviledge of the warranty.
Hope you decide on these views.
