Kenmore dryer making rattling noise

Recently I noticed my dryer was making a lot of noise. I opened the lower panel and cleaned out all the debris. I started the dryer up, but the noise continued. When I put my foot against the lower panel, the noise seemed to stop. I am wondering if there is something in the drum, or if the panel is loose and rattling. The drum is very close to the lower panel.

Any suggestions?

    I taped the lower panel of the dryer with duct tape and now my dryer is much quieter. Thank you for the help. You saved me some money.

If the panel's clamps are broken it will rattle,for a quick fix i would use duck tape on both sides.

could be coins in the baffles, sometimes coins make it into your dryer, and they slide under the baffles, remove or open the top of your unit and you will see the screws that hold on each baffle, remove the screws and the baffle will come off inside the dryer with whatever is in there. then re-secure the baffles..

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
