Most likely the front drum supports (either rollers or slides) are worn out, forcing the drum to slide over an uneven surface. If the drum is supported in the rear on rollers, these could also be the problem. Rear axle/bearing mounted mechanisms can also cause this problem.

Less likely is a worn belt or worn idler pulley bearing. All these components can be replaced by a reasonably skilled homeowner, although the dryer will have to be disassembled to do so.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Why does my gas dryer make a loud vibration noise?


Hey friend, I appreciate your post!

I understand that your Electrolux gas dryer is making a loud vibration noise and is also loud while tumbling. There are several components in your dryer that could be causing this noise. Based off what you are describing it might be an issue with your suspension rollers, motor, or pulley. Since it could be any of these underlying issues I would suggest getting a technician out to diagnosis and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful. - Matt

Tumbles but dont dry


74632 is not a model number. But what you have stated the dryer probably has a bad thermal switch. Cost around $6-8. Unplug dryer, remove back, with a tester test everything that has wires hooked to it. Test from one side to the other to see if power goes through, if not replace that part. They are small round or small rectangle with two wires connected to them. Check the one one the duct first, this one usually goes bad. Vacuum out all lint out of dryer and hose to exterior, excess lint will cause dryer to heat up and blow this part.

Not drying clothes - have heat and tumble but probably not air Kenmore 80 series dryer.


Your vent is clogged. Remove hose from back of dryer and wall. vacuum out back of dryer, dryer hose an vent pipe in wall, if it goes out at roof you will need to clean out. Moisture from dryer is getting caught in excess lint trapped in vent causing dryer not to dry.

Sounds like solenoid is faulty


Yes, sounds like a faulty relay on the main bd. Could also be the motor is starting to seize up and drawing lots of current. I would suggest a technician look at the unit and test with an AMP probe to determine where and when the excessive power is being pulled.
