There are 2 screws holding the loewr panel on the unut, you can remove the panel and watch it operate to pinpoin the"noise" most likely cause is a roller on rear wall, or perhaps a faulty front set of glides( the drum sits onthem)

What do we do to address thumping noise in Kenmore Elite HE4 Dryer?


It is probably one of the idler wheels it rotates on. Look for a flat spot and if you didn't replace the drum your self ask for your money back.

Loud grinding noises and black streaks on clothes


Your drum rollers may be going bad (grinding noise) which will sometimes cause the drum to drop slightly, creating a gap where the clothes get caught as the drum rotates. (black streaks)

MAKING NOISE


The bogey wheels when worn will cause noise as the drum rotates. This assumes the drum gasket is properly in place.

Creda simplicity TVU1 tumble dryer is making a thumping noise while drying


Hi dave hemming.
I do not believe it is a bearing that is causing your thumping noise
*****************************************************************************
No...you do not need a new drum...all you need is new drum rollers
You probably have a flat spot on one of the rollers, it will make the thumping sound when the drum rotates.
Go to the following webpage and get your drum rollers and install them and that should take care of the noise you are hearing

Hi I have a Miele T250C and its jut stared making a clicking noise, could you help?? thanks


Hi the is a set of carbon brushes mounted on top of drum which measure the resistance of the clothes . The noise is most probably the brushes worn down and catching on drum as it rotates.if you remove the lid they are situated on the right hand side, gently lift arm and noise should disappear. If so you will require Part No. 5153702

I have an admiral dryer and its making lots of noise.


The drum might be the problem. It rotates on nylon
slides or rubber wheels. If the slides are worn down,
replace them. My Kenmore rotates on two rubber
wheels and is 1985 vintage with some noise.

I cleaned out my lint tray and after I put it back in, the dryer started making a grinding noise?


Hi,
Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a squeak.
Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)
May be loose drum slides can cause a metal scraping noise as the drum rotates. For that you'll need to contact Crosley Service Center.

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My GE Profile Dryer is still operating but produces loud intermitent noise as the drum rotates. What can I do to eliminate the noise?


It sounds like you may have a bad bearing in the back of the drum. That model rotates on a sort of ball and socket type mechanism. You may be able to lubricate it if the noise is just squealing/squeaking. If it is more than that, you'll probably need to replace the bearing mechanism. If you lube it, use a heavy weight lube that is rated for high heat (I've used brake caliper grease.)

When turned on, the drum makes a grinding noise as


The main bearing may be worn out at the back of the drum allowing the drum to wobble.Reach inside the drum and lift upward. If you can move it up and down this is probably the problem.
