SOURCE: loud noise when dryer runs

I agree with the reply where it could be a bearing or the belt tensioner pulley. Although typically the rear bearing will make a squealing or squeaking sound. There isn't too much that can cause noise in the drum itself. I have seen dryers where the belt was frayed or about to go make the noise you describe. I don't think it is the rear bearing, but the front glides, or bearings could be going out causing the dryer to run unbalanced.

SOURCE: loud noise while running

you are gonna have to get inside the unit to determine whats defective...

if you want a parts breakdown i would recomend going to sears. com clicking on the section parts and service usually upper right corner, then click parts, u should be in their parts direct section enter you model number which u can find when u open ur dryer door their should be a sticker or tag somewhere that will list it.. find ur model or sometin similiar uually last digits designate color so it doesnt matter. you can see how the unit comes apart or get prices or part numbers on specific parts.

I would personally check the operation for defectiveness on your belt,rollers, idler pully, and possibly a seal if yor dryer has sometype of glides or seal.. hope this helps

Loud noise when the dryer turns on

Well, sir, it is metal on metal, and you did well to stop it. Someone will be needing to take the whole thing apart and find the problem. It may be easy because the metal should show where it was rubbing because it will be shiny bright.
Be blessed.

The problem I am having with my Amana model NED7800AYW makes a loud noise when running

Without knowing what you mean by "a loud noise", I am going to say it sounds like the blower wheel has come loose and might need replaced.

Really loud whirring/squealing noise

Yes, It is still safe but very annoying...
The source is probably the guide rollers for the drum or the belt tensioner pulley. To know for sure you will need to pull the dryer apart and turn it by hand slowly and see where the noise is coming from...

Is this a good dryer?

I bought this dryer from Lowe's May '08. No problems until today. Made a loud squeeking noise at first, now more of a ball bearing-grinding noise. Service man coming out tomorrow morning. Out of warranty, of course, paid $900.00 and not even 2 years old.

Loud noise when dryer is running.

My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.
