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.

MY FRIGIDAIRE MODEL FAQE770KW0 DRIER IS MAKING A LOUD NOISE AFTER IT GETS HOT


you might need a new roller on the back of the drum, As for being louder when warm it's the part getting hot from Friction that is wearing the roller or roller pin down.

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.

Drum makes noise when turning


You have 2 wheels the drum turns on replace these they look like small roller blade wheels they are located in behind the front door at the near bottom and it requires 2 of these rollers one on the left one on the right. Thanks they may cost 20 30 bucks for both. Remember to rate my solution and give testimonial this is how i earn my achievements here on FixYa Thanks in advance

SQUEAKING NOSIES


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 bit..now...


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

Maytag performa electric dyer makes dragging noise drum turns but acts like something catches and makes a dragging or scraping sound


assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.


The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

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.
