Remove the front panel on the dryer there should be screws that hold it on at the bottom and clips at the top lay the unit down on its back and after screws are removed you lift the front up and the clips on the top of the front cover will come out then you can get to the belt

I have a LG Dryer, DLG2102W. It is about 2yrs old and is making rumbling and screeching noises when on. I am thinking is is a belt or roller


Hello,

The problem (noise)can be from both side or area !

However, Loud noises coming from a Whirlpool dryer are most oftencaused by loose objects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The dryerbelt allows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditionsmay cause the belt to dry out, eventually cracking and then snapping. This willcause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix the dryer belt of aWhirlpool dryer to get rid of loud noises. Instructions And Things You'll Neededto solve the problem.

Screwdriver ,Replacement dryer belt 1 Stop the Whirlpool dryer and look inside thedryer's drum for any loose objects such as coins, pens or anything else thatmay have been in a pocket of clothing. Remove the object and restart the dyerto determine if the noise has stopped.
2 Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet todisconnect all power to the unit. 3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment onthe top of the dryer. 4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel inplace. Pull the panel off to access the
dryer belt.
5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum toremove the belt. Check the dryer's belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split orbroken will cause loud noises. 6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it outto remove it. Take note on how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel awayfrom the dryer and slip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of theold belt and slip the new belt following the old belt's position ensuring thegrooved side of the belt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor toallow you to slip and loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Whirlpool dryer andscrew it in place.
9 Open the dryer door and use your hand to rotatethe drum counterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the dryer into the wall unit and begin use.If the noise still exists, you'll want to call a professional repairtechnician. Thanks for using fixya.

Dryer will not spin. Its a propane dryer and the heat is fine...just wont spin. I assume there is a belt somewhere?


Belt is on the inside. It wraps around the motor pulley and the drum. Opening the dryer is required. Make sure unit is unpluged 1st. Very easy repair. Belt can be ordered online and shipped to you. Model and serial number will be required. Probably about a $15 - $30 repair. Should take about 30 -45 minutes on the long side. Instruction to open your dryer should be here: http://www.partselect.com/dryer+open-cabinet+repair.htm

Maytag dryer model#PYE2300AYW turns on but makes loud noise when tumbling. whats wrong with it?


If it is a metallic noise, it can either be a pulley with bad bearings, or possibly the rear drum support/ bearing. If squeeling noise, possile belt. I would open the unit and check it out. Keep in mind that, in many cases, the repair can be more than buying a new unit. I bought a good, new dryer from Lowes for around $200. It would be hard to get a repair guy to come out and do the repair for that amount. Choose wisely grasshopper.
