Whirlpool Duet Dryer Idler Pulley

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Not all will apply to every dryer. Check our video page for more style dryers.


Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. You will need to disassemble the dryer to check these. Some dryers use rollers in both the front and rear. Check our videos for other style dryers.


The Belt should be replaced if you hear any noise coming from it or if there is any cracking, glazing, or grooves worn out. Replace the Belt along with the idler pulley.

Idler pulley

Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.


Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace the glides and bearing housing if necessary. Put hand inside drum near front and push up there should be no play.

Rear drum bearing

Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace the rear bearing when they're worn. Put hand inside drum near rear and push up there should be no play. This video walks thru another type.

Blower wheel

Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermosta ts, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace the blower wheel. Many times the blower wheel is making the noise and it is commonly mistaken for the motor.


The motor may be making noise. The easy way to check is to remove the belt and turn the dryer on if it is noisy replace the motor.

Dryer is getting very noisy. Does this mean there is a problem ?

The most common reason for the dryer drum to stop spinning is if your drum belt has snapped or has been worn down completely. This is an easy fix and simply involves buying a replacement belt and feeding it through the pulleys and on the roller and then back around the middle of the drum.

The rollers could have worm out causing the drum to spin in a bumpy and noisy manner , these are the little circle shaped objects your dryer actually sites and can usually be replaced depending on how old your dryer is. The pulleys could also be broken causing problems.

The motor could have died after many years of use if the drum is not moving at all and if it is moving the motor bearing could be off causing to spin around very roughly and sometimes scratch against the sides of the dryer compartment.

Noises coming from the dryer when its plugged in and spinning could also be due to a huge amount of dust built up around the dryer drum. Sometimes cleaning out the inside of your dryer and returning the drum to the correct position can fix this problem.

Screeching noises are not a good sign and sometimes its a sign that you drum is slowly cutting into the sides of your dryer which could permanently put your dryer out of use if its continues.i think i will work out

Dryer has started to be very loud.

Check ease of drum moving that it moved freely. Remove panels Is motor noisy? Check belt. Is movement of drum noisy? Make sure exhaust is not clogged. Can the air move freely to the outside. Make sure there are no kinks in exhaust line. Determine cause of noise then you have a few choices. Repair, lubricate replace parts or replace dryer. Sometime you just need to use it until it doesn't work anymore and then buy a new one depending on the cost of repairs vs. replacement.

There are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations when worn out. Many times a dryer will squeak just a little bit as it first starts. This should go away in just a few seconds. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks. The blower wheel is always moving and lint is constantly going by it. If it’s noisy, it may have gotten clogged with lint, or it may be worn and need to be replaced. Clean out the area around the blower. If it’s still noisy, replace it.
Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out. Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If the glides are worn, replace them as a set.
Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.
The gas valve solenoid will make a buzz type of sound as it opens. The valve itself will give a little click as it starts the heat cycle, when ignition begins, and when the burner is turning off. The burner flame itself makes kind of a low-pitched roaring wind sound.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hotpoint CDT00G Very Noisy

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.

GE Dryer DPSR483GA2WW too noisy

Remove the rear panel from the unit. This should expose the motor, drive belts, and the drum bearings. Now turn on the unit and your may be able to determine where the noise is coming from. Keep your hands away from moving parts and electrical connections!!

Kenmore Dryer Drum is very loose and noisy.

It sounds like one of the rollers has a bad bearing. You will need to take the front off the dryer, unhook the belt, and remove the drum to check the rollers.
