Kenmore he2 it first was just sqeaking and now its starting to clang


The belt is attached to a belt tensioner which has a roller with a bearing on it. The bearing is dried up making the noise. If you disregards the noise for some time the noise will change as yours did. The roller freezes up causing the belt to wear a flay spot on the roller causing a thumping clanging noise. It is advisable to replace the belt and roller as a unit. Sears sells this as a kit form together. The top will have to come off first the the front panel to gain access to the drum

Noisy dryer


hi there,

the rattling and squeeling noise usually comes from the drum shocks. they do wear out due to use. i would recomend replacing them.
