Normally bad drum wheels,
if you need to replace them, is cheaper and better if you get the kit,

Dryer Repair Squeaks, Grinding, Clicking and Knocking Noise


Your dryer has started making noises. The common noises that can happen are squeaks, grinding, bumping, clicking, or knocking. I will give some of the common reasons why your clothes dryer could be making these noises.

Loud noise from your dryer often is the result of excessive wear of the parts inside of the clothing dryer.

Many dryers use a type of glides or slide for the drum of the dryer to ride on. As the dryer heats then up they wear away. The heat from the inside of the dryer and the friction heat will eventually wear them down. When the glide material is worn away the metal of the drum will start to rub against the metal support behind the glide. Metal on metal will make a very irritating squeaking noise, or grinding noise. If this happens, replace the glides.

Other dryers use a type of wheel or roller to support the rotating drum. These rollers turn on a sort of bearing that in often no more then a pin through a bushing. After a period of time the lubrication will dry up or otherwise go away and the assembly will quickly wear out and start to make a clicking noise, or a knocking noise, or even a grinding noise. In any case these often make a loud noise that can be very annoying. If you have a wheel or roller that is making noises then replace all of them, because the others are soon going to go bad also.

On some dryers there is a rear drum bearing. This center spindle supports the drum instead of rollers, wheels, or glides. This spindle will have a bearing assembly of some type that it spins on. This bearing also may start to squeak, grind, or make a loud noise.
If you have this type of dryer then you can replace this when it goes bad.

Another source of dryer noise is the belt. The belt often will make a different noise that will be more of a knocking or thumping noise. Pieces of the belt may come out of the belt and it still is not broken. As the gaps in the belt run over the idler pulley or the drive pulley the belt will make a thumping or knocking noise.

The idler pulley can also be a source of noise. This also has a bearing in it that will wear out. The noises made from this are similar to the rollers or wheels. If you have these kinds of noises coming from your dryer, you need to figure out what the exact cause of the problem is so that you know you are changing the right parts. Or you can just change all of the rotating parts to make sure that you get the problem fixed. The parts involved are not that expensive to replace.

Finally the blower wheel that moves air through your dryer can become clogged with dirt and lint or just plain wear out. If it is loose or out of balance it will make all kinds of funny noises. Cleaning it may help but replacement is probably the best fix. If it is still noisy after cleaning, then replace it.

This should give you a good overview of the possible causes for noise from your clothes dryer. As you can see there are numerous possibilities or causes for noise. Take your time and eliminate them one by one till the cause is found. Repairing them is not that hard and the parts are not that costly.

My frigidaire fer231cas2 makes a horrible loud GRINDING noise after its been running for 10 or so mins


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see that you have changed multiple parts within your Frigidaire dryer due to a grinding noise. Since you have changed the bearing cup, felt, pulley, and belt I would recommend having a technician come out to diagnose your appliance to avoid any further unnecessary part purchases. You could be seeing an issue within the drum or motor. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Dyer was grinding, then won't run


Sounds to me like you motor has froze up. Is there any smell coming from the dryer? The fuse would not cause this. A fuse would make the dryer do nothing when you hit the start button.
