Most usually the bearings are bad in the fan motor if it is making excessive noise. Most of the time they are sleeve bearings and the motor would have to be replaced.

Rumbling noise from my dryer


That could be one of two things. Either the bearing on the back of the drum is bad or the fan is having issues. Either one is not bad to fix. You have to get it down on the floor to repair it. See if the drum can be moved up or down by pressing on it from the inside with your arm in the door. Then you can take the top off and see if the drum bearing is bad. If it is not. Then you have to remove the front of the unit to get to the fan and motor.

Very loud squeaking noise - like a noisy loose fan belt on a car.


The dryer needs to be rebuilt, new drum belt and drum rollers to cure this problem.

When we start our dryer it makes a loud noise as if it struggles to get the drum moving. Once the dryer is moving it has no trouble moving, but every time we start it, the noise happens again even if i was...


Is this noise like a loud buzz or hum? If it is it may be the motor draging
and can't quite get going. bearing getting worn.
Also check drum rollers or glides and the idler pully one of them may
be dragging if they are you might put a little high temp oil on it.
Hope this helps..

Drum not turning-very loud sound coming frm dryer when turned on


There could be multiple problems with you whirlpool dyer depending on the type of noise you are hearing. If the noise is a low grumble or loud buzzing sound this could indicate a bad motor. Which could explain you not hearing the drum turning. If however you hear a grating or grinding type noise but the drum is turning, this could indicate that something is rubbing or has become jammed inside the blower fan that circulates the air. if this is the case it too may have to be replaced. Also the drum can sometime come off the drum support rollers at the back of the dryer, but this is very uncommon, and only happens if they are very worn or broken. This can easily be diagnosed by a technician and if the motor is fine, will cost little to repair.Hope this helps.

Thanks

Makes loud noises


Although there may not be any gas parts involve you should have gas technician work on the unit. Depending on the noise your hearing it could be a number of things, if its making a scraping noise it could be that your front drum glides are gone allowing the drum to ride on the frame of the door. glide part numbers are 306508. if the noise you hear sounds like a grating sound it could be that your blower wheel has something caught in it and is now rubbing on all of the fan blades on the blower.blower part number is 33002797. if you hear a loud banging noise you could have a rear bearing issue. both roller bearing part numbers are y303373.hope this helps

Thanks

Loud squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

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.

Dryer making loud clunking noise


Make sure the drum is not catching the back panel, and that the fan is not loose on the motor.
