Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Loud noise when dryer is running.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 is about 4 years old. Lately, over the past month it has started making a loud noise when it is running. It sort of sounds like a vibration noise except nothing is sitting on it to cause this, it is pretty loud.

    My dryer makes an awful noise when running. Sometimes it does not make the noise at all and other times it gets really loud. If I put my weight on the top of the machine the noise quiets down but who wants to stand at the dryer the whole time?

    How do we get the noise to stop without calling Sears to make a house call?

My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.

I have a kenmore elite 3 dryer, model #110.87872601 that squeaks while running. Is it the drum rollers, idler pulley?


This dryers drum rolls on two or four wheels. As these wheels wear after time they tend to start making noise. You can change or have them changed if they are very loud. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
