Could be felt pads and nylon glides on the front drum support are deteriorated.
Could be a sticky build up on the rear drum rollers.
Could be a worn belt tension roller.

Unplug the dryer.
Remove the front panel.
Remove the front drum support.
Remove the belt and drum
Inspect the items listed above.
Replace as needed.

Dyer makes a grinding noise when drying?


This is usually a sign of worn drum slides or drum rollers. Also, possibly the drum bearing.

The dyer still works but it makes a loud noise and doesnt produce the same amount of heat as before


LOUD CLUNKING NOISE WHEN THE DRUM TURNS? IF SO, YOUR ROLLER BEARING IS BAD. AS FOR THE LESS HEAT, YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR VENT, MAKE SURE IT'S CLEARED. IF SO, YOU HAVE BAD COILS

I have a LG dlg5988w drying that just started making a banging sound. Are there rollers that need replaced?


yes the belt has a tensioner with a bearing and a roller surrounding the bearing
the bearing can be locked up which will put flat spots in the roller m,aking the banging noise
Sound horrifying at times doesn't it?

When the dryer runs even with nothing in it it , makes a thumping


check the inside of the drumm make sure none of the fins are loose,
but sounds more like the wheel rollers are bad, sometimes is loud when it starts then seems to go away a little after the dyer get hotter, is the heat that makes the metal bearings make less noise. u can replace the wheels,the belt an tensioner at the same time is cheaper to pruchase the kit an have it all done the first time! bad wheels put more stress on belt an eventually will break apart so just order the entire kit

My dryer is making a really loud noise when the clothes are spinning in the dryer. There is a loud rumble and squealling noise.


The squealing noise coming from your dryer is caused by the front glides located on the top bearing, they act like a pad against the drum and when gone, will make an awful squealing. part number for the 4 glides that may be needed is WE3X87 this is a common problem as it is a wearable part. if you don`t replace these in time it will grind all the way through your top bearing and start to deteriorate your drum. if its been like this for a while you may also need a GE drum bearing they come in short and long sizes. and are relatively cheap to replace.hope this helps

Thanks

Loud noise


could be that one of the bearings that the tub rolls on is wearing out and needs to be replaced or the belt pulley running to the motor is worn and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps
