When it is like that you usually need to replace the drum bearing.

If the tub recently started making a lot of noise, and you can feel that the bearing had too much play when spinning by hand, that means that the drum bearing needed to be replaced.

You can find drawings and the schematics entering model number here.

My dryer is a model number GLER341AS2 and when I turn it on it makes a sreeching noise. Now the screeching has turned into a louder noise almost like a rubbing thud.


The symptoms you describe indicate that your dryer drum bearings are faulty: there is usually a large 'felt' bearing around the opening which support the drum and prevent metal to metal contact (screeching noises)- The drum must be removed to get to this front bearing (which is normally glue to the dryer front panel at the drum opening): it is not a trivial job and is not normally replaceable by end-users.

Hope the explanation helps.

You are referring to the rear drum bearing that has worn away..
It means replacing the rear bearing and drum shaft.
It comes in a repair kit which you can obtain from Hotpoint.

Hi, My Hotpoint CTD00 Condenser Tumble dryer makes a thudding sound with every revolution, sometimes it sounds like a pair of trainers are in there! What could be the problem?


Could be a worn drive belt, or more likely to be a worn rear drum bearing, common prob with dryers, you need to remove top cover, and look for anything obvious.
Please rate my solution.
Thganks.

LG DLE2514w electric dryer has loud thud every turn


Hi,
Most model dryers are supported at thge rear of the drum with a bearing configuration, but usually the front of the drum is supported by some lining pads or guides. These help hold the rotation of the drum concentric. It sounds like your drum is not spinning concentric. My guess would be that some new guides might need to be installed.
Hope this helps...

I am hearing a very loud chirping noise as my dryer works. I have disassembled the dryer in an effort to find the source of the noise. I found no obvious breakage. I intend on replacing the tub drive belt...


The rear drum bearing is the most common place I see noise on this unit. You will also won't to check the front pads the drum rides on and the idler pully for the belt. GE parts can get expensive so I would look it over good before buying anything.
