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.

How stop front loading electric dryer vibration while drum is rotating clothes.


110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.

Noisy vibration when drying


Your dryers uses 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 your dryer has 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. Rear drum bearing assembly does not fail often in this type of dryer. Here is a video of the testing and replacing dryer drum rollers this will walk you thru the troubleshooting and replacement of these parts. 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. This brings us to the last problem could be the blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time.To check this grab the wheel and see if theres any play . 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 need to replace it. If you need diagrams or illustrations of your specific model you can also enter your model # there. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

We have a front loading dryer that is noisy and vibrates a bit when the drum turns during use. Everything else works fine. Thank you for this service!


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

The dryer is making a rumbling sound when in use. It has some vibration but not like it is out of balance. When you open the door the drum stops immediately. Upon restart it makes a more mechanical sound...

DRYER IS MAKING A CONSISTENT BANGING NOISE WHEN RUNNING. DRUM IS TURNING AND DRYER DOES DRY OK.


Hi,

There are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations when worn out. Many times a dryer will squeak just a little bit as it first starts. This should go away in just a few seconds. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks. The blower wheel is always moving and lint is constantly going by it. If it’s noisy, it may have gotten clogged with lint, or it may be worn and need to be replaced. Clean out the area around the blower. If it’s still noisy, replace it.
Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out. Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If the glides are worn, replace them as a set.
Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.
The gas valve solenoid will make a buzz type of sound as it opens. The valve itself will give a little click as it starts the heat cycle, when ignition begins, and when the burner is turning off. The burner flame itself makes kind of a low-pitched roaring wind sound.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dryer rumbles and vibrates like a bering going out or something, it will still dry a load. the noise comes and goes.


Hi

If your dryer is making noises and vibrates then you'll need to check for the following--

  • 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.

Please do rate this solution as Fixya if found helpful and revert for any assistance.

Thanks
