    found it folks, it is the motor, sounds like a bearing. Can the bearing be replaced or is it recommended to just replace the motor?

SOURCE: loud rattling noise, but dries ok

The drum of a dryer is supported b the front and back of the unit, spins on a felt gasket. Noise is coming from rollers or their is something stuck between drum and the felts. The pulley is a piece of springy metal with a plastic wheel on it, could also be worn. If you take off front of dryer, drum will come loose, check to see if something is stuck. Common for loose change to get jambed in felts. Also spin rollers and pulley to see if need to be replaced. I still think something is caught in felt.

What is causing rattling grinding noise at idle especially in my 89 4.5 DeVille?


The technique I always used to identify where such a noise was coming from was to use a very long screwdriver (2 feet long), while the engine is running. CAREFULLY touch the screwdriver end to each pulley or other object under the hood, and put your ear to the handle. The device making the noise will become very clear.

It could be AC pump/clutch, alternator, water pump, power steering pump, etc.

After changed a new water pump,timing belt,idler pully,tensioner for 2004 lexus ls 430, when start engine has a noise look like from pully


COULD BE A BAD BEARING IN THE IDLER PULLY OR THE TENSIONER ON THE TIMING BELT OR THE SERPENTINE BELT. IF ITS A SQUEEL IT MAY BE SOME COOLANT GOT ON THE SERPENTINE BELT. TRY TO WASH THE BELT WITH WATER AND LET DRY COMPLETELY. IF NOISE REMAINS RETURN TO THE SHOP THAT DID THE WORK.

Hello! I have an 06 Trailblazer and its making a loud whinning noise. It gets louder when i press the gas pedal. We have replaced the idler pulley along with the belts. We have also taken the alternator...


Have you tried running the engine for a minute with the belt removed? If the noise is still present when you do this, then it is not related to the belt or any of the pullies. I have seen "whining" noises coming from the air induction system - namely, vibrations set up by the idle air control and reverberating in the intake. This will not go away with the belt removed.

If the noise does go away with the belt removed, then the problem HAS to be one of the pullies or components that are driven by the belt. Power steering pump a little low on fluid maybe? Or possibly a rough bearing in an idler pulley? Spin each pulley by hand and see if it makes any noise. You should not be able to "hear" them spin. If you get any kind of rattle or roughness when spinning the pulley by hand, then this is most likely your problem-child.

I have a rattling sound up towards my belts. kinda sonds like a ceased barring. near my alternator


The best way to find the noise is to remove the belt
and check each pully by hand. If a pully locks up it
will make more of a screeching sound. A rattle sound makes me think your idler pully is loose.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Sounds like a bearing going bad where do i look first


a rod bearing makes noise when you are just barely pulling .. it likely will quiet down as you accelerate and decellerate .. you can rev the engine up a bit then let up on the gas just enough to keep that rpm ..a rod bearing will rattle a lot then ... if a thud like noise happens when you are accelerating . then it could be a main bearing .. if the noise is there all the time and sounds like a rattle then its more likely a valve problem .. old oil can cause the lifters to stick and rattle continuously .. if the noise you hear is a squeal then you could have a bad bearing in the idler pully (for fan belt) or alternator .. if thats the case you can put a drop of oil on the bearings one at a time until the squeal goes away .. that will identify which part is going bad .. there are other less likely bearings that can go bad .. like the cam, distributer, air compressor and water pump .. each have their own type noise ..

Rattle noise from tensioner and pullys aera when engine is idiling and warm


Take a candle and rub all belts, do NOT get your hands stuck between the belts BE CAREFULL or use silicone spray. Try this first, sometimes the belts dry out and make noise, other wise the idler pully bearing is at fault.

How do you check the idler pully to stop squealing?


NO ADJUSTMENT IS PROVIDED FOR, THE BLET NOISE MAY BE DUE TO A DEFECTIVE IDLER

BLADE DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENT


Well, most riding mowers have a "pully idler", meaning once you have the belt on there (and it is the RIGHT size), the idler automatically gives the belt tension when you engage it (in fact, the idler pully is what IS engaged when you engage the belly mower).

Couple things to check (super simple):

The Belt. Look to see if she is wore smooth out.
Sometimes....they WILL stretch on you, instead of busting/coming apart, and give you noise (when she is engaged, but wore out enough to flop around a little)

The Deck Blade Bearings. Straight away, that is what it sounds like, or bent blades.

Check your Blade Bearings (super simple):
1. Pick up your deck to the highest high setting (mower off, just sitting).
2. Reach under, and grab your mower blade (do this for both sides), and TILT your blade UP (meaning, don't LIFT the blade straight up).
Seriously, jiggle it at a TILT. If you feel some slack in the bearing, the bearing IS shot. Straight up and down is most of the time OK, IF it is VERY little play on your blade bearings. As you do it, look at your belt pulley directly on top, if you see that pully bobbing....

However, if you grab one side of the blade only, then tilt the blade up, and she moves.....
Bearings need replaced, both the upper AND lower bearings PER blade.

They are not hard to replace, and not expensive either! (Though unfortunately, most are "sealed" junk nowadays!)

Bad Bearings show up (make themselves known) in only a few ways: Tons of Noise (grinding, squealing) & Vibration.

Go check them thar Bearings!
