Front drum has two rollers, left roller has come off and drum is resting on fan housing. Fan housing is plastic and will warp causing side to touch fan. Take apart and put rollers back on track.

Unlikely- it is possible for the front of the drum to collapse
Take off the top, two screws at the back, and inspect the front of the drum. To dismantle further remove the back.

Drum Noise and not drying proerly


a dryer drum usually rides on rollers. when center of roller wears out then they start to get noisy

The dryer is making a knocking sound when running. The sound has increased lately. What may be the cause of the noise?


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rollers 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. 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. Glides 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 them. 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 them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, 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 repla

Black marks gets on clothes as if they're getting caught in something.


Our Hotpoint DLL2650 has the same symptom. A bearing has been squeaking for over a year. Now one of the drum rollers makes a grinding sound against the drum. I suspect the drum roller has come apart.

Dryer heats intermittently. timer does not advance on sensor side. noisy operation


Sounds like you have a timer switch problem if the timer is not advancing.
The noisy operation sounds like a drum roller problem.
If you have a front loading machine:
Unplug the power cord, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check the rollers for flat spots on them, if they are flat spots on them they need to be replaced. If there are no flat spots on the rollers then you may get by with just lubrication on the shafts of the rollers. Use a good grade of machine oil on the shafts of the rollers such as 3 in one Oil.
I hope this helps.

Very noisy vibrating sound when dryer is turned on.


You problem sounds to be noisy drum rollers.
Drum rollers will get flat spots on them and over time they will need lubrication.
If you have a front load machine, then you would normally remove the front and this will expose the drum...remove the drum and this will expose the drum rollers.
If you have flat spots on the rollers replace them...if they are in need of lubrication you can use a good grade of machine oil...such as 3 in one oil. You would oil the shaft of the drum roller.
If this does not solve the problem, then you may have to replace the drum rollers
I hope this helps.

When the dryer is running it is really noisey. We should have returned it but didn't


Sounds like something is caught between the drum and dryer (inside) or the drum bearings are going bad. Normally sounds like a squeaking then get to a grinding noise (not good)

Loud rattling noise, but dries ok


The drum of a dryer is supported b the front and back of the unit, spins on a felt gasket. Noise is coming from rollers or their is something stuck between drum and the felts. The pulley is a piece of springy metal with a plastic wheel on it, could also be worn. If you take off front of dryer, drum will come loose, check to see if something is stuck. Common for loose change to get jambed in felts. Also spin rollers and pulley to see if need to be replaced. I still think something is caught in felt.

Dryer makes noise when turning like bearings going or belt squeek


Hi,
check the following -
It's noisy
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel

Rollers
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. 


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. 


Glides
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 them. 


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 them when they're worn.


Blower wheel
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, 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 it.

good luck.....

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.
