Can I fix this myself or this it time for a new dryer? Also can I use it until it quits running or is there a safety risk.

The spindle or shaft turning the drum may be bad. The motor as well could be slowly but surely grinding to a halt.

I get a rather loud rumbling sound when I first start up the dryer the drum is turning but still getting the rumbling sound but not as loud.


Sounds like you need rear rollers or you have a bad blower wheel. If you turn the dryer off and still hear the rumble for a few seconds its the blower wheel. If the rumbling stops instantly then you have bad rear rollers. Hope this helps.

Makes a horrible noise. Seems to dry fine but before its done it sound like it going to explode.


The blower wheel may be stripped out or broken.
This will cause a loud rumble noise while operating.

Loud rumble sound, Vent hose vibration


That model of neptune dryer had a problem with the blower housings cracking. When the housing cracks, it binds forward into the blower wheel making a loud "rumble" noise and vibration. If you open the door and manually turn the drum and you hear a rubbing noise and feel alot of resistance, then you have a cracked blower housing and need to replace it. It is not an easy job to replace, so if your not familiar with dryers, you should have a technician replace it. Let me know if you have any further questions. shane

Very Loud Dryer


squeeling hi pitch is usually the drum support roller above the heater. if you take the machine apart and turn all moving parts by hand you should be able to find the problem...if its a rumbling noise then it may be the blower wheel. UNPLUG FIRST..good luck :)

Dryer makes rumbling noise intermittently


It sounds like a faulty roller under the drum. Need to pop the top of the dryer, then remove the front -- you'll probably easily spot the faulty part.
