While cleaning the inside drum and turned the drum by hand. She heard a "loud noise" and will not turn. The control panel will come on andselect the mode, but when start is pushed nothing happens.


When you rotated to drum you caused to belt to pop off the pulley .it has a safety switch so it won't run if belt breaks . With unit unplugged remove top than control panel than front panel to access bottom to put belt back on just enough room for hands to fix inside

My whirlpool duet sport dryer made a loud bang then stopped working and now says its sensing,,what could be wrong


Try reaching inside the dryer and turn the drum by hand. There should be some resistance because of the belt going around the drum. If you can turn it freely my guess would be the bang you heard was the belt breaking and the idler pulley hitting the floor or the side of the dryer. Most dryers today will not run if the belt breaks because of a safety switch. Hope this helps.

Loud banging noise looks like the drum is off set and it damaged the rubber in the front


If the inner wash drum is sagging when it is empty, it probally means that the support arms that hold the drum has failed. If you turn the drum by hand and if you hear any kind of banging noise or the drum wobbles more that a fraction of an inch, then the support or spider arms are broken.

You can't buy the spider arms seperately and must buy a drum and spider as one unit. The cost to repair would be in the hundereds. See the following link to judge for yourself if you want to fix it yourself or have it fixed. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4267953-spiderarm

Drum not turning properly


Sounds serious! If the drum is floppy, it probably means bearings on rear shaft.Or there may be something caught between the tank and the wash basket.Check for wire or similar caught in holes in was basket. Try turning the was basket slowly by hand to see if the banging happens at the same place......Nomess

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

Drum will not move


Try to remove drum belt, and then turn drum by hand, if it does not turn , then you have either siezed drum bearigs, or some thing jammed between the inner and outer drum
If drum turns freely, then check motor to see if it is free to turn.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

My Eaton Viking Dryer Model # ED214W449 was running, I heard a loud bang and realized the drum had stopped turning and won't restart. Is this a drum belt issue? Is it hard to repair myself. Where can I get the part for this. Thank you.
