Kenmore 90 Series Dryer started to operate very loudly. The noise sounds like it normally does while drying, just much, much louder than usual.

I just replaced the motor in my Kenmore Series 90 dryer, When I'm running the dryer with no heat it runs as quite as could be expected for a ten year old dryer, When I run with heat the dryer starts making...


It could be possibly your rear roller bearings expanding with heat causing them to not spin as freely? Im not really too sure but its an idea you dont have many moving parts on the unit. Just your idler pulley, blower wheel, and rollers. Hope this helps.

Repeat banging noise in dryer


Sounds as if the drum supports are bad. Replace the rollers that the drum glides on and should be good to go.

Kenmore 600 Dryer- suddenly stopped working


can you hear the motor running, if so then more than likely the belt broke, you need to unplug it ,remove the front cover, then top cover, then remove drum and you can start to restring the new belt

Have a constant noise when dryer is running. Best description of the noise sound is, it is a similiar sound like the washing machine is in agitation mode....any ideas what the problem might be??


your felt pads front and rear are worn out these dryers do not use bearings instead they use a strip of felt for the drum to ride on replace these and the noise will go away

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
