Loud Noise While Drying

My Kenmore 70 Series Dryer makes a loud noise while drying. The heater in the dryer still works, but the dryer makes a loud noise the entire time the clothes are drying. What could be the problem?

I've got the same problem, but it's not really bad. It's just a rattle now and then. I just wonder how to get the Kenmore 70 dryer apart, but I'll Google it. Somewhere I read a dryer sheet or something else could be stuck in there, oh yeah and the dryer should be level. lol

Kenmore gas dryer 97273100 was drying, but making a loud noise


You need a belt. Here's a link to a site with a good set of instructions if you want to try repairing it yourself. (You should DIY. You can save a bunch on the service call and the belt is only about $20.)
