Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

The tub is scraping against the side of the unit when turning.

It sounds as if the noise is on the backside of one of the plastic dividers inside.

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

Grinding noise


Must look underneath machine and verify nut holding up belt pulley has not loosened, if nut is loose, the noise you are hearing is the pulley scraping against plastic cover. if nut loose, unplug unit and remove 2 5/16in screws from plastic cover, remove nut and add loctite to threads, re-install nut tightly, re-install cover and all is fixed.

Why does my sylvania electric fireplace Model S211 squeal


I had the same problem. If you remove the top row of screws on the backside of the unit, you'll see that the flame effect is created by a series of reflectors attached to a rod. Turning on the unit activates a motor that turns the rod. You'll see that the other end of the rod is just a loose end that is allowed to turn inside a plastic holder. Unfortunately, the rod rubbing against the plastic as it turns causes the annoying squealing sound. I solved the problem by wrapping a small amount of paper towel around the rod, pushing the PT into place inside that plastic rod-holder, and spraying it with a little bit of WD-40. I had to remove the entire back panel to get proper access. No more squealing noise (for now)! Time will tell if I need to reapply the WD-40.

The drum seems to have become detached from the inside and has been scrapping against some plastic


The support bracket on your inner tub has probably broken. It involves replacement of the inner tub (drum) and probably the outer tub depending on the extent of the scraping. The parts will have a 5 year warranty, but the labor/service charge is your responsibility. Labor can be a bit pricey because of the extensive labor involved.

Bra wire stuck between the drums in hotpoint WD440 Aquarius washer dryer


Look all around the inner tub with a torch , if you spot the wire sticking through grasp it firmly with pliers and pull out , dont let it go , if it slips completely between drums it is more difficult to get to.

DRUM MAKES NOISE WHEN TURNING ALMOST LIKE IT'S RUBBING AGAINST SOMETHING INSIDE THE MACHINE. SOUNDS LIKE DRUM IS TRYING TO STICK AT SOME POINT OF ROTATION.


check that all the support springs are connected and one is not broken. It is also possible that something is between the drum and the frame.

My GE Profile DPSE810 Electic Dryer has started making a scraping noise when the drum rotates. What could be causing the scraping? It makes the noise even if I take out all the clothes and there is nothing...


Told by several GE Service Techs that the noise is normal metal expansion & nothing can be done. Anyone else have this issue?
First dryer in over 40 years we ever heard this type of noise.

Maytag Washer Noise While Spinning


Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back. Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.) Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.

Terrible scraping noise from drum,what is it?


more likely there is a bra wire caught between the inner drum and outer tub, possibly wrapping itself around the element in the bottom.
