    The felt inside the door feels fine. We had problems last week with our dryer not drying. So, we pulled it out, took apart the coil from the dryer and the wall and cleaned out the coil and the aluminum connecting to the outside. There was a lot of lint clogging it. We also cleaned the lint trap and used a large lint brush to clean the inside of the lint vent (where the line trap goes down into). Could any of this caused a problem with how the dryer now sounds. Could we have hit something or messed something up when cleaning the dryer vents (and lint trap area) with the large lint brush? The noise and heavy vibration didn't start until after we just did all of the above.

Run but makes a vibration noise ,leave off awhile noise goes away


Hey Steve, I appreciate your post!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer runs properly and makes a vibration noise. This could be due to leveling within the dryer and I would suggest checking to make sure the dryer is leveled. You can do that by using a leveling tool, these can be found at a local hardware store. If your dryer is leveled I would recommend having a technician out to make sure the motor or drum are operating properly. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLER642A, is making a thumping noise when running, and you want to know how to fix this. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician.

Makes a ticking or clicking noise when dryer is on. How can I fix it? The heat and tumbler still works though.


Hi Lisa, thank you for your post!

Based on the above-listed model number, FEX831CS it shows you have a Frigidaire laundry center. However, you mentioned that it is a gallery series. So do you have a laundry center or a Frigidaire gallery dryer? In order to better address the issue, what is your model number? You can typically locate the serial tag, which lists your model number, on the right or left edge on the inside of the door. How often do you hear the ticking or clicking noise? With this information I can better assist you. Thank you!

FWT445GES1 Washer makes loud banging noises like it's going to explode.


Washer- you need a complete tub and bearring kit. this is a common problem for people who have well water. (also just happens) the rear yoke has become corroded and broken. its a costly repair.

dryer - you would need a new front slider seal. very simple to install.
