If the drum is actually turning, the noise is from the fan unit that blows the air in the unit. It could also be caused by lint caught in the belt drive or the exhaust hose...

    Thank you Leigh. You were correct. We found that the lint hose out the back was not attached and, we cleaned out all the lint and no further problem with the fan noise. Thanks very much! Ken Stevens

SOURCE: 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.

It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.

Our Whirlpool Cabrio used to make a knocking sound during the wash cycle, never figured out what it was, then it stopped and now it's so loud, especially during a spin cycle. Sounds like it's going to...


First, have you replaced any carpeted surfaces in your home? If so that will make a big difference noise wise. If not-
Let me guess, the washer is a few years old. When the Cabrio first came out I sold them and I bought one. As long as you can stand the noise use it for as long as you can. The problem is the drive shaft wasn't made sturdy enough to handle the load at such a high spin. If you look underneath the washer you will probably find a oily substance, if not you still may have some time left. Take an old piece of carpet or throw rug and slide it underneath that may mellow out the '757 jet' noise a little bit. The parts and tools to repair the drive shaft only runs around a $100, but the labor takes 2 men and is super intensive. The repair bill more than likely will run between $450-$550. If you love your Cabrio as much as I did, the good news is Whirlpool has remedied the problem on MOST of their newer models (do some research). I haven't worked in the appliance business for a few years, but would I buy another Cabrio? I already have.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6700TW1 that is making a banging noise


The Cabrio unfortunately has many problems. Your problem however is the four suspension rods. If you know someone who is handy it's not that bad to do yourself. Just need a little patience. There are two clips just between the top panel and the front panel. Use a screw driver and a flashlight to see the clips. Then using the screw driver, push in on the clips to lift the entire top panel. This can be difficult. Once open you should be able to see the four rods that support the tub. That's what you need. Hope this helps...

Loud dry sounding spin cycle


cabrio and calypso have some issues with either main bearing problems or brake drive issues, either or this is an expensive fix, so if you have an extended wty, call your service provider, if not, just replace it, repair most likely in excess of 600.
