SOURCE: Kenmore 70 series dryer making loud rattling noise, drying ok

it could be a worn motor bearing, but they usually last for 20 years, i would guess that you have a worn drum roller, the thing that holds up the drum and looks like a wheel.
if your sure the motor has a worn bearing then replacing the motor is not easy as you have to unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft.
it also may be that you are talking about the idler pulley being worn. it is the device that holds tension against the belt and they also will wear out and be "wobbly"

SOURCE: How stop front loading electric dryer vibration while drum is rotating clothes.

110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.

Where is the lint filter on Speed Queen...


You didn't say if it was top or front loading and did not include a model number. The model number is usually on a tag that is covered by the lid or door.
As far as I know most washers do not filter out lint during the wash but rely on the lint being suspended in the wash water and expelled with the dirty and rinse waters. Many do have filters in the drain that do need to be cleaned at times but the symptom is usuall a slow drain or not draining.

I had this same problem 3 weeks ago, and here is what I found.
The dryer was so clogged with lint it could not dry the clothes. I had to take the whole machine apart and clean all the lint out. I found the felt around the drum was worn out, and that was allowing the lint to go everywhere it shouldn't. With the felt replaced and the lint gone, it worked well.
Be blessed.

No lint on filter? Where is it all going? Checked exhaust vent bought a vacuum attachment and there is no lint. Twice and sometimes triple the drying time! Help!


Instructions
  1. Dryer Does Not Run
    • 1 Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
    • 2 Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
    • 3 Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent" position.
    Long Drying Times
    • 4 Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
    • 5 Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 6 Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least 1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
    • 7 Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
    Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
    • 8 Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
    • 9 Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle. If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can leave stains on the clothing.
    • 10 Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
    Dryer is Noisy
    • 11 Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
    • 12 Separate items that are knotted together and restart the load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer vibrate.
    • 13 Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.

I dried one load and the clothes seemed to be a little damp but try enough, when my daughter put clothes in it and pressed the button, it made a humming sound and did not want to turn, I waited a while and...


when it hums and won't start that's usually the motor,when was the last time you took the dryer apart and cleaned it?alot of people don't know that the dryer should be unplugged,taken apart and cleaned out,the vent line too,i bet if you open it up your motor is covered in lint,if the vent line is a long run you can remove it from the back of dryer and stick a leaf blower in it and blow it out to the outside,if it hasn't been done in a long time after you blow it run the dryer on air fluff and go outside and check to make sure the air is blowing out,sometimes blowing it could push all the lint up to the opening and block it,if it does you have to pull it out or get a brush and stick it into the pipe and clean the opening out,but you could have something stuck in the blower wheel if the dryer was started with clothes in it without the lint filter in it and a piece of clothing went down into the blower wheel stopping the motor from turning or the motor is bad,the dryer should be cleaned out at least once a year.

We have a WHIRLPOOL dryer model # KGYE670BWH3 and the problem is that when switching from a high to low temperature it stays high at hot rather then low temperature. but then after awhile it will go low.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Lets talk about the physics of changing drying temps mid cycle. The dryer has built up an average temperature that is high when you had high selected. The clothes are hot. The drum is hot and the chassis / ducting is also hot. It can take almost 10 minutes for that residual heat to be removed before you notice that the drying temp has changed.

Having said that, there are a few things to check as to why it is taking an extended period to dry your clothes and why the dryer seems to be running hot.

1. Check the outside dryer vent flapper for lint build up.

2. Check the ducting for lint fromt he dryer exit to the outside vent flapper.

3. Remove the lint filter and look for lint build up around the lint filter ducting. (if it needs cleand do NOT use anything sharp to remove the lint.) A vacuume crevice tool and an old coat hanger folded in half works great.

After checking all of the above and making sure they are ALL clean, try your mid cycle change again an see if it takes less time to notice a difference.

If it is still taking a long time there may be a problem with the temp selector switch.

That is it for now.

Thanks for using FixYa.
