Drum making noise


Hello Jodi Roberts. I want to help you with your problem but I will need a little more information please.

Can you describe the noise? Is it a vibrating type noise or Is it a squealing sound, as though the belt is slipping? Can you smell something from the dryer similar to the smell of burning rubber?

Dependent upon what you describe can tell me if it is the rollers or glides in the front of the drum support; OR rollers or bearings in the rear of the drum.

Or as I said before, a slipping belt from either a seized bearing on the drive pulley, or the idler tension pulley, or simply a worn & frayed belt that just needs to be replaced due normal wear & tear.

Thank-you.

Inglis dryer is squealing like a belt loose. it subsides during cycle but a burnt rubber smell is very prominent when finished


Replace the belt - it is old and worn out. The belt is made of rubber and is slipping, causing the smell and squeak. The belt heats up and becomes more flexible after the dryer runs a while; this is why the squealing stops.

Squealing noise on start up drying still works


This dryer needs to be taken apart to lubricate any and all moving parts. Idler pulley and rollers, if they are worn out in any way, replace them.
Also, consider a new belt.

It is making a horrible squealing nose when it runs and takes forever to dry. it is a maytag atlantis 7600 electric dryer.


The squealing noise you are describing sounds like the drum rollers in need of lubrication or replacement.
The problem with the drying could be a faulty heating coil and or faulty thermostats.
If your machine is a front loading machine:
Unplug the power cord to the dryer, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, then remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in one Oil. If the drum roller is worn or have flat spots on them, then you may need to replace them.
Remove the back of the machine and this will expose the air tube, find the air tube from the blower to the drum, normally inside this tube you will find the heating coil and thermostats.
Good luck, I hope this helps

We have a whirlpool duet washing machine that is about 7 years old. During trhe spin cycle it makes a loud noise. Not the typical "airplane noise." There is also an odor. A burning engine odor. If you...


The rubber belt is worn and slipping under load. (like a fan belt)
There could also be something caught in the belt or pulleys; clear it out and it should work.
If worn, replace belt soon...


Hope this helps!

Loud squeaky noise when dryer starts, noise stops after several minutes


I would replace the belt that turns the drum. It is probably wearing out and that is causing your noise.

Maytag gas dryer squealing


Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.
