Why does it sound like a ball bearing rolling around?


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

Why does my Frigidare crown dryer runs smooth when starts up, but gets a noise that gets louder the longer it runs it runs


Either your drum bearing or drum felt kit is worn out. It is always better to put drum bearing along with new drum felt kit.

Hi Gene, I have an Electrolux FEX831C30 stacked washer and dryer. the drum in the dryer has completely come loose and has dropped to the bottom of the dryer cabinet. there were two screws in the drum. what...


Good Morning Brian,

The reason the drum has fallen free from the rear is a defective rear drum bearing and that drum bearing that has sheared itself off of the bearing support.to repair that dryer ya would need to replace the bearing kit its part number 5303281153 and would be in stock at your local applince parts store or online at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, apdepot.com, partselect.com, or apwagner.com

Before replacing the drum the drum bearing you should also inspect the heat element since when the bearing shears off its not that uncommon for the drum to fall onto the heater shroud and also break the heat element

While this Youtube video i have included the link to shows how to replace the drum bearing in a full siz e free standing (not stacked laundry center) dryer the process of how to replace the rear drum beaqring is exactly the same and that video should help ya http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=67hOqSFnX8g&feature=pyv&ad=9033434261&kw=drum%20bearing

Good luck,i hope ya find it very simple to replace that bearing,
GENE

Creda T520VW is very noisy when drum is turning and then it keeps tripping the fusebox. What can be causing this?


this sounds more like two faults,, a motor fault and a bearing fault
if the bearings on the dryer drum have worn out and the drum is draging the sides of the dryer the poor old motor is working its hart out trying to turn the drum this is putting a lot of load on the motor and the motor is pulling a lot more amps to do the work,, this trips the trip in the fusebox good job too or the motor would catch fire! ,,,yes i did say "catch fire!!!" to test the drum bearings,
open the dryer door and see if you can lift the drum up if you can the bearings have worn out,,there should only be a small amount of lift in the drum
as for the motor,,,its had it now? its been cooked!

Drum turns but makes a banging and metal grinding sound


The felt bearing on the front of the drum is worn out. Immediately stop running the dryer, and replace the plastic drum inserts and put in a new felt bearing before machine damage happens (if it hasn't already). While there, grease the rear bearing and the idler pulley bearing. Check the belt too. Good luck.

My dryer is destroying my clothes,


There is a gap between the lip of the drum, and the dryer housing. Usually the gap is not large enough for clothes to get caught up..
I think the drum should be removed, and the drum bearings checked for excessive wear. This can cause it. There are like 6 rubbing blocks at the front, that the lip of the dryer runs on. This is what I mean by bearings. There will also be a single drum bearing at the back of the drum, check this also for wear or damage.
Hope this helps.

Clothes get lodged between dryer barrel and dryer frame


you need a new rear bearing kit and a new top front felt yes this is something you cand yourself. Frist unplug the dryer, with a stiff putty knife releace the clips on each side of the top at front to pop open the top. next on the inside of the front cover on each side is a philips head screw remove both screws ( I find it easier to use a #2 square head for this ) now remove the front panell diconect the door switch.now reach under the dryer drum behind the motor and release the belt by removing the tention on the idler pulley and slipping the belt off the motor shaft (you may be able to do this better fromt the rear of the dryer. there is an access panell remove the two screws and you can see the belt and idler pulley ) now using the belt in one hand and the front of the drum in the other lift up on the rear of the drum ( you are lifting the bearing out of the scocket you will feel it pop out ) now slid the drum out of the cabnet. Now you can repace the bearing put a piece of duct tape over the clip on back center of the dryer ( on the outside ) now remove the two 5/16 screws holding the bearing cup on remove the tape from the clip put ne clip on tape in place set new steel ball in cup i put a dab of the greace supplyed in the kit to hold it in put cup on new bracket. set in place and put screws in you may have to reach around the back to line up the clip teghten screws snug. now in the center of the drum is the bearing on the inside are three philips head screws remove all three some timse you can use a #2 square headi lossen all the screws frist almost completly the remove them one at a time or you will have to hold the bearing with one hand to keep it from spinning. Putting the new bearing on you have to put the screw in one hole hold it with one hand and line the bearing up with the other or get some one to leand you a helping hand makes it alot easier.tighten all three screws good and tight now reinstall dryer drum besure to seat the bearing in the bearing cup again you will feel it pop in put the belt back around the drum. Now on the dryer front you will see the felt support the fron of the drum glides on pull it off just the top felt only with a putty knife clean off as much of the old felt as possable. Apply a genurious amount of the glue provided in the kit to the new felt i always put a good line of glue on the dryer front also press the new felt to the front (be sure if the new felt has plastic glides the overhang should be toward the front not the drum if the new felt does not have these glides you don't have to worrie) put dryer front back on when putting the drum back on the top felt you may need to hold the new felt to keep it from moving. reconect door switch put the two screws back in the front. now go back to the back and putthe belt back on the motor pull the idler to tighten the spring put belt around motor shaft and ease pulley back to belt. Put access cover back on and secure. close the top plug it and test don't let dryer run long just a few seconds I like to let the dryer set 24 hour befor putting back to use to give the glue time to set.
