Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

Rumbling in dryer

There is a low rumbling sound in the dryer that starts when you start the dryer and then it continues momentarily after you stop it. It is as if a wheel is loose or still spinning after the dryer stops (disengaged somehow) How do I get in there to see what it is... I removed the bottom panel but I can't see the problem from there...

Replace your blower wheel. (This is fairly common repair for some Maytag dryers) It is not too hard to do. If you can confirm your model number I can give you a part number and tell you how to get to it if needed.

I have a kitchen aid khms 1850 microwave. When setting idle it continues to make a small rumbling sound and after 30 minutes it smells like something is overheated. I'll unplug it after a day and will...


That is the sound of the magnetron failing. The large capacitor inside may also be drying up and causing the sound. When the capacitor dries up further it will start blowing fuses.

I have a stackable washer/dryer gas maytag. Purchased around 17 years ago. The dryer is not drying clothes. Gas is powered fine and it is heating up. The cycle seems shorter than normal


Hello,
The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.

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.

Dryer is making a rumbling sound and has gotten louder in recent weeks.


If thenoise continues for a few seconds after the dryer stops it is most likely the blower wheel. Minor repair but requires removing the front of the dryer and the duct cover.

Very low rumble when oven is on, more noticable as oven warms up.


Sounds like an built-in exhaust fan going bad. Bearings most likely.

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.

Dryer makes rumbling sound when starting


If you remove the front cover and access the blower fan and see if it is still tight on the shaft. if it isn't it makes a rumble sound when started due to vibrating and after a while it makes more noise as it goes. Now I removed the fan and placed a shim in the flat area and matched the flat area of the shaft and replace it back on the shaft and it should solve it.
