After replacing valve coils it now makes thumping noise reassembled it twice


Thumping noise is usually something with the drum system. You didn't list make and model so I'll give a few suggestions. If its Whirlpool--- the drum rides on 2 rubber rollers at the back edge that wear and need replaces if the rubber gets too bad. The front edge of the drum has a 2 piece plastic bearing strip that snaps into square holes in the front drum edge. Those 2 strips sometimes break or chip and need replaced.

If its a Frigidaire dryer----the back drum bearing is a small round metal ball that looks like a small trailer hitch ball. If fits inside a slotted plastic retainer block. The plastic block wears and the ball sometimes gets grooved and needs replaced. It comes as a complete kit (ball and socket) for about $20. The front of the drum has a similar system plastic strip as the Whirlpool I described above. Hope this helps.

Model fde336resi loose drum


There are 2 areas to check for this dryer drum. The back center bearing looks like a small trailer hitch ball which is attached to the drum. It fits into a plastic socket on the back wall of the dryer. To remove the drum, you need to take the dryer front off and disconnect the belt that goes around the drum. Then use the belt as a handle and yank up the back of the drum to lift the ball of the drum out of the socket. The plastic socket is what usually wears but you can get a complete kit including the ball and socket for about $20. While the drum is out, look at the inside edge of the drum opening. Should be a white plastic bearing strip completely around the opening.If cracked or missing replace those also. Should be 2 strips. Thats all that supports the drum in the front.

When is on it makes a bird chirping noise that goes away after a while


Hello- Depending on the model you have it is most likely either the front or rear bearing. The front bearing on some GE's is actually a series of 3 teflon strips attached to a plastic support and the rear bearing is a ball and socket type. The teflon strips do wear down over time and then the drum starts to wear into the plastic support. The rear bearing "socket" also wears over time and can cause the drum to sit a few degrees lower in the back and cause squeaking. It may fade as the dryer heats-up because some metal parts are expanding and plastic parts wear in a certain grooves, so to speak, once they have been moving for awhile. Unfortunately you will probably need someone out to disassemble the dryer and find the specific cause. You may be ok to just live with it for awhile but it could be causing more damage to the parts as time goes on, meaning a higher repair cost. Hope this helps a little, best regards.

Dryer squeakes when it runs


This is most likely wear of the bearing strips at the front of the drum. There are also support wheels that may need cleaning and lubricating.
Nothing major - yet, but solve these problems before the wheels sieze up or the strips wear too far.

The dryer squeals (metallic sound) while drying clothes.


check wear pads around front of drum or rear depending on brand. Ge's are particularly prone to scraping sounds, but still one of my preferred brands. IF a ge, did it get any dents around the sides or back? The drum is close to the sides and a dent in right place will do it. Also the rear panel can push the drum forward rubbing in front.
Ge - wear strips in front, plastic bearing in rear center, replace both, inexpensive.
Whirlpool- felt pad and wear strip in front, felt seal in rear with roller support. check rear seal lube rollers
Maytag -roller in front and rear with front and rear felt seals. some designs have front drum support posts with wear pads. ck these.
Frigidaire (include some sold under GE name) rear bearing cup (plastic)-lube, front feltpad with wear plates if plates gone get new pad/wearplate asm.
Maytag and ge nomenclature tags are in rear .

The dryer makes a loud noise and also a rubber smell develops after a 1/2 hour of use


My dryer did the same thing. I had to replace the front support glide assembly and needed 4 teflon glides.
The front part of the dryer runs over this plastic piece seen here upside down.
00087335.jpg
this part is about $50 CAN there are 4 plastic or teflon glides that fit into this.
My dryer had worn through the teflon glides and start wearing away this piece.
My dryer is a GE front load dryer. And I did get a burning smell because the dryer was wearing away the plastic. After the teflon strips wore down.
Hope this helps

Clothes getting stuck in door seal when drying.


the plastic that you see overlapping the metal on the sides of the opening is in two parts, top and bottom, you can see the seem. the top is the smaller part, this plastic is also the drum support on the front. There are some glides on the top section that wear with time, after a few years they may need replacement. Perhaps these are worn out dropping the drum creating an uneven gap and catching. there is also a felt strip in there between the front of the dryer and the drum, keeping it back.
To view this remove the top by removing the 2 screws inside upper door opening holding top down. then lift top and if plastic console slide to left then pull away, metal -just pull straight. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet sides. pull front forward. glides are visible on top. if not there or worn thru plastic replace upper plastic support

A hard plastic liner from my front loader dryer has broken off and now the dryer makes a loud noise when drying.


This sounds like one of the drum front plastic bearings has come out or broken, there can be as many as 4 or more of these bearings depending on make, you would need to replace all bearings regardless off wear.
Again, depending on make, this can be quite a job to do ,and on some makes it involves a strip down.Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
