Question about LG Dryers

1 Answer

LG DLEO332W Dryer -- tub rubbing the sidewall. When running empty sounds like a coin in the tub. Popped the top. Belt is in place. In front of the belt circling the tub is a thin 3'' wide rubber/plastic strip(actually 3- 3x24''strips). To the back of the dryer the same set of strips has worn off against one sidewall and now the drum rubs the sidewall. Don't know if this took 4yrs of rubbing or dryer wall dented moving 6mo ago. What is function of strips? Part# since I cannot find strips in manual? Is it ok for tub to be shifting side to side slightly(1/4''?) as it rotates- or does this need an adjustment? Thanks, Mike A

Seems like you need new drum rollers. If one(or both) is bad, the drum will rub in the plastic.

SOURCE: Rubbing noise

Try checking the glide's under the front of the drum, the drum rest on the glide's to help it spin with little or no friction.

SOURCE: My dryer makes a weird noise when running, kinda

depending on the make and model of the machine the drum glides or rollers need replacing,to accomplish this you need to remove the front cover by removing toe kick panel screws and lifting up on cover,you get instructions with the glides or rollers on replacement when you buy them

I have an LG Electric Dryer Model No. DLEO332W. It runs fine on ultra low or low heat, but if in the middle of the cycle I turn it to medium, medium high or high heat it cuts off.

There is a hi-temperature limit switch in the heating area that may be the issue. It can be manually reset but hard to get to. Top off, control panel off, front off.

Check the tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is next to the motor and the bearing may be shot.

I have a LG Dryer, DLG2102W. It is about 2yrs old and is making rumbling and screeching noises when on. I am thinking is is a belt or roller


The problem (noise)can be from both side or area !

However, Loud noises coming from a Whirlpool dryer are most oftencaused by loose objects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The dryerbelt allows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditionsmay cause the belt to dry out, eventually cracking and then snapping. This willcause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix the dryer belt of aWhirlpool dryer to get rid of loud noises. Instructions And Things You'll Neededto solve the problem.

Screwdriver ,Replacement dryer belt 1 Stop the Whirlpool dryer and look inside thedryer's drum for any loose objects such as coins, pens or anything else thatmay have been in a pocket of clothing. Remove the object and restart the dyerto determine if the noise has stopped.
2 Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet todisconnect all power to the unit. 3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment onthe top of the dryer. 4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel inplace. Pull the panel off to access the
dryer belt.
5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum toremove the belt. Check the dryer's belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split orbroken will cause loud noises. 6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it outto remove it. Take note on how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel awayfrom the dryer and slip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of theold belt and slip the new belt following the old belt's position ensuring thegrooved side of the belt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor toallow you to slip and loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Whirlpool dryer andscrew it in place.
9 Open the dryer door and use your hand to rotatethe drum counterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the dryer into the wall unit and begin use.If the noise still exists, you'll want to call a professional repairtechnician. Thanks for using fixya.
