Maytag neptune dryer makes loud noise on the right side when top dryer is on

The belt tensioner bushing could be shot or there may be a piece missing from the belt. Did you check the back for a removable observation cover?

My whirpool makes loud flapping noise

Really sounds like the drive belt is coming apart.
If that is so, the belt is just about to break, but may run for a day or a week more yet.
Be blessed.

Hoover Maxi 6 TC50 Tumble Dryer making squealing noise

Have you fixed this problem? I also have a Hoover condenser dryer, only a few months old, and has started to make a squeal/whistle. I'm thinking it might be the front fan needing some WD40, OR too much water vapour around the belt that moves the drum causing the sounds.

If it's the fan, lubricating the shaft and its components should fix the problem, if a wet fan then I'd think maybe fully cleaning the condenser filter, reservoir ect will fix the problem.

The problem seems to go away though "mostly" 15 or so minutes after you start the dryer, so that makes me think ones it gets warm something is expanding to allow more "give" so maybe the belt.

My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start button. If you hold it in, the dryer will start but makes a noise, almost like a bad belt. After a few minutes the dryer will shut itself off and will not...

Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

Front loading kenmore 86983110 makes loud noise when turned on. Think that there is a problem with the belt. I am tryng to take it apart now and do not know how to find the belt

The belt is located at the back of the appliance.

To remove belt you have to remove a panel at the back, on some model you remove top panel first.

The belt does not make loud noise. Loud noise when spinning is usually caused by bad drum bearing, located at the back of the drum.

Dryer squeaking & Clunking noise

Your particular unit has quite a few things that could be making a real loud noise.....The idler pulley, blower wheel, rear drum rollers, front drum glides. Bottomline is you have to get in there and take the unit apart..vacuuming while there and if the unit is making such a noise, it will be obvious where the problem is.....If I can help further, I am here.......

Maytag atlantis dryer squeals very loudly when running

you have answered your own question! The belt will have become loose due to age/stretching. You hear cars making the same squealing noise when thgey rev up. Its a real squeal/screech. It may possibly be the drum rubbing on the chassis due to beariing failure, but doubtful.
So on some machines the motor is on adjustable brackets that let you move the motor away from the drum pully by loosening the bolts/nuts and then re-tighten. Don't leaver the motor down and then lock off the nut/bolt as this will make the belt too tight, and cause the belt to fail or the bearing to fail over time Take the back cover off the machine and all will be revealed.
best of luck it's a simple fix if your diagnosis is correct

Kenmore dryer making excessive noise

Likely the main drum bearing in the back. I have seen these go bad, and loud squeaky noise tells you. You can get a new main bearing and replace. It is in the center of the back of the drum, accessee through back panel of dryer usually.
