OK, not too sure about this, but...about the only thing that will make a dryer make the sound you describe is a diconnected vent pipe or a problem with the vent fan. Check to see if the vent pipe is connected first.

We have a Frigidaire FER211AS2 dryer that started making a loud humming/roaring noise. Hubs replaced the bearing and drum belt. The noise isn't quite as bad but it still makes the same noise. What could it...


Check the alignment of the belt. Humming/roaring noise usually comes from a bearing, so your husband got it right to change the bearing and belt.
Now, he just needs to make sure that the belt is aligned right and the bearing is properly seated. Also check for rubbing marks around the travel area of the drum.

Hi, my GE model DBXR463ED1WW dryer is LOUD!


Roaring could be an over firing burner or fan related. Squeak or rumbles are bearings. Is the noise all the time or only when the burner is on? Eric

Kenmore dryer makes roaring oise when the drum turns


I have the same problem. I thought originally it was the seal around the drum but we pinpointed it to the fan motor. We think there is something wrapped around the fan motor or the bearings is going out.We would have to take everything out the drum and belt and motor to get to the problem. If you take the back panel off and take the lint trap off you can turn the fan and you can hear the loud noise. We tried spraying wd-40 around the fan pin but don't get any on the motor. It will burn it up if you do that. But it didn't work so you will have to take everything out.

Roaring Sound During Operation of Dryer


Does the roaring sound occur after the machine warms up? If so, it could be a bad drum bearing. the heat from the dryer causes it to expand in its housing and, since it may been defective, could start "roaring". If so, The dryer drum shaft/bearing assembly will need to be replaced

If however, the roaring is immediate upon start up then u may have a bearing in your dryer motor. The entire motor may have to be replaced.
