LG TROMM Gas Dryer has intermittent rattle noise while turning

I have a LG TROMM Gas Dryer that was installed just over a year ago. Recently it has begun making an intermittent metallic rattle inside the unit (like a loose screw) while the drum is turning. No errors on the display, and it makes the noise whether on timed or sensing dry setting. But it doesn't seem to make the noise if there are no clothes in the dryer, as if weight has something to do with the noise. The unit is stacked on top of the washer.
Is there a way to open the unit to look inside, or any idea of what may be causing the noise?

Loud banding noise in my LG Tromm DLE7177


Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

Our two year old Maytag gas dryer is making a rattling noise. The noise is intermittent. Also, when the dryer turns off and the drum stops turning something else seems to "run on."


this is most likely a broken wheel which is a wheel that the bearings have worn out on.If it is a wheel you should replace the set because if you replace just the one the others will wear out faster than they should.
Ps if it is only two years old it may still be under warranty!

My LG tromm dryer wont heat and i don't know how ignite the pilot


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Dryer is making a rattling noise when in operation. Dryer is eight years old of so. Never heard this noise before.


Rattling could be anything from a bad idler or support pulley or coins in the vanes. If you can hear it you can find it pretty easily.
