Question about Samsung Dryers

1 Answer

Samsung Dryer only 16 months old. Making a terrible loud noise. We had a repair man out who said the seal around the motor was weak and about to tear making the motor rub against the drum. He said to replace the motor it will cost 389 (this is after the $150 service call just to come out!). REALLY??? It is just out of warranty and this is happening? Anyone else with this issue?

Without being there to see this it's hard for me to say what's happening but if the drum is somehow hitting or rubbing down on the motor the drum had to have dropped maybe from a bad roller or something like that,the motor is screwed to the floor of the dryer so if the drum is somehow down that low i would say the drum has dropped down somehow.if you send the model number it would help but like i say if you had a tech out there he could be right but i've never heard of this.

SOURCE: dryer makes squeaking noise

If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, open dryer door, remove screws going up into top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side.

Pool filter making a loud noise


The sound you are hearing is most likely rust forming on the inside of the motor. It tends to happen when a pump seal starts to fail. Water travels up the spining shaft from behind the impeller into the motor. The high pitch is a direct result.
Solution. Replace the pump seal, and find a motor repair shop/ Pool pump repair shop to take a look at the motor. Have them check the brushes and bearings. Once clean of rust the motor should be quiet once again.

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
