I had a dryer that did this as well. I ignored it until it finally stopped running at all. Turned out the barrings that hold the drum up had warn out and there were metal filings all over the back of the dryer as well as a burn spot from all the friction.

Sadly I had to purchase a new dryer, however, you might be able to replace the barrings, but they look like it will take a repair man to do it as they are in a very hard to reach area. It might cost just as much to purchase a new dryer.

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.

Dryer is slow to dry clothes, takes 2-3 cycles of 45-50 mins.


Check to see if there is a built up of lint in the exhaust.
Keeping the correct temperature at all times inside the dryer ensures that the clothes will dry efficiently. If clothes are not drying then inspect the door seal for signs that it may be worn or damaged.

A blower wheel that is not firmly attached to the drive motor can slip and therefore not move air fast enough to properly dry clothes or even reduce airflow to the point where the high limit thermostat may trip and turn off the heat circuit. A loose blower wheel will usually make a rumbling noise as well. Inspect the blower wheel to make sure that it is tight to the motor shaft.

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Noisy dryer not drying clothes, water found in vent tube


You either have a restriction somewhere in the venting which you say you have already checked or maybe a bad blower (fan). it may be stripped off the shaft and not pulling any air through the machine. If you run the dryer with the hose removed at the back and it dries well you have a problem with your venting. If it still takes three cycles it's a problem with the dryer. Repair would probably run about $100-150

Rinse Cycle Finishes but Drying Cycle Doesn't Start


Does this unit run for hours with 1 min remaining? if so you need to replace the controll board. I have soldered some with sucess but it "Should be replaced" You also need to make sure you have just dry liquid in the unit and "Don't use soap tabs" 1 -3 tsp of soap that is all. If you are good with mech work I can walk you through the way to check ths unit out to tell what the problem is.....

Machine runs, but clothing won't dry


It sounds like your heating element is shot. The elements on this machine are very sensitive and if you use too much cleaning fluid the part will wear down after a while. You will need to get the part replaced (yuck) and start to use a little less washer fluid. Please let me know about your experience with the company (danfrogel@yahoo.com)
