I have a LG Dryer, DLG2102W. It is about 2yrs old and is making rumbling and screeching noises when on. I am thinking is is a belt or roller


The problem (noise)can be from both side or area !

However, Loud noises coming from a Whirlpool dryer are most oftencaused by loose objects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The dryerbelt allows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditionsmay cause the belt to dry out, eventually cracking and then snapping. This willcause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix the dryer belt of aWhirlpool dryer to get rid of loud noises. Instructions And Things You'll Neededto solve the problem.

Screwdriver ,Replacement dryer belt 1 Stop the Whirlpool dryer and look inside thedryer's drum for any loose objects such as coins, pens or anything else thatmay have been in a pocket of clothing. Remove the object and restart the dyerto determine if the noise has stopped.
2 Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet todisconnect all power to the unit. 3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment onthe top of the dryer. 4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel inplace. Pull the panel off to access the
dryer belt.
5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum toremove the belt. Check the dryer's belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split orbroken will cause loud noises. 6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it outto remove it. Take note on how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel awayfrom the dryer and slip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of theold belt and slip the new belt following the old belt's position ensuring thegrooved side of the belt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor toallow you to slip and loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Whirlpool dryer andscrew it in place.
9 Open the dryer door and use your hand to rotatethe drum counterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the dryer into the wall unit and begin use.If the noise still exists, you'll want to call a professional repairtechnician. Thanks for using fixya.

I get a loud scraping noise when I first start up the dryer

It sounds like the drum is off balance, the drum could be scrapping along the side of the dryer. Check for a loose bolt on the drum assembly. Once it starts running the drum levels out and the scrapping noise goes away

Severe noise - drum is jammed and won't turn - LG DLE-5977 dryer

A piece of clothing is probably caught in the blower wheel.
Remove lint filter.
Use flashlight to look into filter housing to the lower left.
You may be able to retrive the item if you can see it.
Try rotating the drum in both directions while looking.

Drum turns when dryers not running

Does the drum just constantly turn and never stops or does it just take a really long time to stop? If it just takes a long time to stop it sounds like a loose belt. If it just turns and turns and turns something in the control panel isn't telling the motor shut off but with the clunking sound you're hearing I'd guess its the belt.

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.

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing

Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.

Dryer won't spin, but heats up - belt is okay

the motor may have seized up, or the drum bearings are shot.

My dryer is sqeaking loudly when running

Squeaking usually comes from drum roller supports and/or the belt idler pulley needing lubricated. If the drum does not have drum roller supports under the drum, it will be equipped with a plastic drum glide the is located around the perimeter of the front drum facing. If this plastic wears down it will cause the drum to scrape against the metal bulkhead and make noise. If equipped, you need to replace the drum glide

The drum rollers (if equipped) can be lubricated with a light weight turbine oil (like the kind you would lubricate some ceiling fan motors with). Lubricate the roller wheels at the axle ONLY. Do not lubricate the wheels. The same is true for the idler pulley. Make sure you don't get any oil on the belt, or it will slip.

If you need instructions on how to reinstall the drive belt, has dryer belt diagram illustrations under their "Repair Help" section. Look for the "Dryer Belt Diagram" link on the left hand side of the page. If your dryer is a GE model, you would use diagram M, D, or L (depending on the age of the dryer).

If you have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.
