Your motor that turns the drum could be going bad or the drum might be slowing down due to the axle it turns on might be "locking up". My bet first guess would be the motor.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell

Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

1999 4X4 Timberwolf 250 Front end nosie

YES!! I figured it out! The drive shaft connecting the front wheel drive to the center drive has two U-Joints. The front U-Joint is blown big time, ready to fall off kinda blown. Note: Find your front differential, remove the dust cover that is attached to the front diff (3 bolts), under that is your front drive shaft. Grab it and pull on it in all directions if there is any loose play its 1 or both of your U-Joints.

if you are mechanicaly inclined it is not to difficult
can't tell by looking for noise - to confined of space
have to take the drum out first then get at the rollers one at a time
If one is noisy (just turn by hand and apply side pressure)
might as well replace both
if not rollers than look at the pressure idler that sits against the motor
and look at the plastic bushings that the drum travels on they are probably worn out
have fun

My dryer heats and dries, but when i open the door the drum doesn't stop nor does the light come on. We've changed the bulb...not the problem with the light. Also was squeekin quite a

as far as the drum not stopping when door is opened that will be a bad door switch
the noise could be anything from a drum support roller to a blower wheel,the bearing on the motor,the rear drum bearing or even something such asa coin caught between the drum felt seal and the drum
nosies a hard to diagnose online since they dont sound the same in written form

My beko wm6123s is washing and spining but is making very loaud nosies please can you tell me the prom and how to fix it?

It the fault is only about noise then it is important that you need to get a good look at the moving parts when the machine works.
Once you have some idea of the area of noise then shut down and remove the mains plug. Now manually turn the washer drum or the motor to confirm the place of noise. It can be poor bearings, displacement of the drum rubbling against the washer body or even faulty motor bearings.
Sometimes a drop of oil or grease ont he moving part will remove the noise.

The washeers drum sounds a bit nosy I think smething might be stuck inside the inner drum. How do I get to check the inner drum?

the inside of the drum makes a clicking sound, and I located the noise at the back of the drum and the noise seem's to be in the central part where the bearings is located.

The drum is not spinning during washing or rinsing

Idler pully is the usual problem. The two tub roller will usualy make knocking sounds but can make squeling nosis.

My manual 5 speeds only makes bearing noise when at highway speeds . repairman says it is a bearing but i thought a throw out bearing only makes noise when pushed in ,

Are you sure hes not talking about a wheel bearing for your front wheels. A throwout bearing will sometimes make nosie like a rattleing if it is not engaged. When engaged it will sound like a roaring nosie. I would check in to were this nosie is coming from first.

Dryer makes a loud nosie when running

Have the same problem. on a DNXR473EW0WW. Probably the brake is dragging. Am convinced that the centrfiical force which releases the brake is being impeded by lint build-up or the motor has lost torque.
