Just to be sure, try spraying some WD40 or similar grease on the shaft of the rollers. I noise goes away, place heavier grease or replace the rollers.

SOURCE: LG DLE3777W dryer thumps when running

Probable cause is the bearing on the wheel that turns the drum is worn out. They are easy to replace and should cost less than $25. for the part.
Remove the front of the dryer and turn the drum by hand, you should be able to tell which side is worn.
Be sure and unplug first.

SOURCE: cracked drum on the DLE3777W model

The drum is a part number 3045EL1002F which will set you back at least $135. Still well worth the repair, especially if you can install it yourself. You have to remove the top by removing 3 screws in back and sliding top back about 2 inches and lifting off. Then, remove front panel. Remove 4 screws holding the front bulkhead. Remove belt from drum. Remove drum. First time might take a hour, second one you do will take about 15 minutes.
Now, don't rate me down because you don't like having to repair your dryer. I didn't manufacture it. I'm just giving you a bunch of free advise.

LG Dryer 3828el3003b. Very squeeky noise when dryer is running. Could it be the drum rollers and how can I fix them?


Place heave grease on shaft of roller wheeles or replace the rollers.
There might also be bearings at the back of the drums. If they are there they will also leak. Spray grease on theses roller shafts to see if the noise go away.

LG dle3777w emitting a high-pitched squeal


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
If your dryer is making a squealing sound or a high pitch noise please look at the following
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

LG dryer Model DLE3777W Very loud & rumbling, Drying times longer and not spinning as fast


Loud and rumbling usually means that at least one of the drum support rollers is not turning freely. It is a bit of work to replace them.
1. disconnect power to machine. 2. remove top by taking 3 phillips head screws out of back edge of top, then standing in front of machine, use palms of hands to sharply push top back about 2 inches and lift off. 4. remove control panel (you do not have to disconnect wires to it, just lay it on top of machine.) 5. remove screws at 4 and 8 O'clock positions behind door, screws along top edge of front panel, electrical plugs to light and door switch, and by tilting panel forward, the plug near the bottom for the sensor, allowing the front panel to be removed and set aside. 6. remove 2 phillips head screws from each side of drum support, allowing support to be lifted up about a half inch and removed, giving access to the front support rollers. 7. Release belt and remove drum to access rear drum rollers. 8. replace offending rollers and re-assemble.
I've skipped over a few minor steps which should be obvious as you go.

My roper dryer is squeaking. how do i stop this


you would have to see if the motor or something else is squeeking. remove front panel, take belt off motor, use a no heat cycle, and turn on machine. any squeeking? yes? then you need a motor...no? then you need a repair/maintnance kit for you dryer. it comes with new rollers, belt and tension pulley and this should get rid of all potentall squeeky parts. if you give me a model number then maybe i can get you the part number you need.

Dryer makes noise when i put clothes in. rubbing squeeky noise


Hello there
the dryer drum rests on rollers that keep it aglinged and straight
if one of these rollers start to wear out this will make the dryer drum misalign which in turn will make the dryer squeel also if the belt is starting to wear this will make it make noises too so i would suggest first opening up the back ofthe dryer and looking at the rollers and seeing if their is any wear from the belt or the rollers and if they are in need of replace ment replace the worn out part ok
Best regards richard
