HELLO;

Please try to unplug the stuff to do resetting in its own in a while and then plug it again and switch on the dryer. If not work then you need to locate the loss connection inside the system you should refix if not maybe some parts in the circuit not function well, in this case you need the repairman to do repair if your afraid to do so.

May this help, melnavz

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.

SOURCE: Changing the drum rollers on a Maytag MDE4000AYW Neptune Dryer..

The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)

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.

Vent
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.

My stacked kenmore dryer is making a banging noise when its drying it just happened out of nowhere i know nothing about dryers can anyone help me out?


Sounds like your drum roller(s) is bad. Unplug you machine and remove the panel to gain access to your drum. You will see rollers that ride on your drum. One or more of them are bad, either broken or have a flat spot worn on them.

The dryer has been making a loud rumbling noise intermittently when operating. What parts do I need to replace?


It sounds like the "drum rollers" are worn. The drum rollers are accessed by dismantling the dryer from the front. Contact an appliance service company.

Two year old kenmore dryer has loose drum


Your problem sounds like drum rollers that are worn very badly.
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 to see if they are worn or the bearing area is worn or flat spots, if they are worn in the bearing area or have flat spots on them replace them.

UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
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.

Noise when dryer is spinning


The drum rides on some roller wheels to allow it to rotate and give it support. They have bearings in them that fail and begin to make noise. Replace the roller that is bad. You have to access the drum by removing the front of the machine, support the drum and find the noisy roller.
