Loud rumbling noise when clothes are added to samsung dryer


the problem can be found at the loading capacity of your dryer, too much load can result to dryer to sag thus the contact between the drum and the sides can cause the rumbling sound.

Noise in operation. A loud rumbling noise when


Any noise must be identified with a good observation of the point of noise source.
This can be done with a good view with all safety precaution while the unit moves. Use good lighting and make sure that you are not putting your hands into any moving parts while the set works.
Now disconnect after observation and manually turn the drum, the motor and the rotor to fix the point of noise. this can be a faulty bearing assembly or a faulty suspension all of which will require a resetting/reassembly.

I get a rather loud rumbling sound when I first start up the dryer the drum is turning but still getting the rumbling sound but not as loud.


Sounds like you need rear rollers or you have a bad blower wheel. If you turn the dryer off and still hear the rumble for a few seconds its the blower wheel. If the rumbling stops instantly then you have bad rear rollers. Hope this helps.

Ge dptg750ec make loud rumbling noise after replacing blower


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Loud rumble sound, Vent hose vibration


That model of neptune dryer had a problem with the blower housings cracking. When the housing cracks, it binds forward into the blower wheel making a loud "rumble" noise and vibration. If you open the door and manually turn the drum and you hear a rubbing noise and feel alot of resistance, then you have a cracked blower housing and need to replace it. It is not an easy job to replace, so if your not familiar with dryers, you should have a technician replace it. Let me know if you have any further questions. shane

Loud rumbling noise with slight vibration


Normally the noise you hear is caused by the drum rollers having flat spots on them or needing lubricant.
If this is what is wrong It will make a kind of thumping noise.
When they need lubricant they will normally make a squealing noise also. You would lube the shaft and bearing area of the roller, using a good machine oil...something like "3 in One" oil.
