SOURCE: Dryer making rattling noise when tumbling.

You have a penny or a dime in one or more of the baffles. Open the door and remove the screws which hold down the top. raise up or remove the top depending on model. Now you can access the screws holding the drum baffles on (4 per baffle) remove the screws and get the objects out. Replace the baffles. Easy money! Pardon the pun. LOL

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.Also remove the screws holding the lint filter in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

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 squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.
