Loud continous noise when drying

What type of noise exactly? Does it sounds like a thumping/whining/whistling or cracking noise? Have you tried to see if the tub/drum is not balanced any more?

Error code warning my load is out of balance

If the drum spin noise is loud your bearings need replacing.
If the bowl(drum)goes out of balance with nothing in it your bowl needs to be replaced.

Yes I have 6 units of the DLE5955W dryer and one of the units vibrates when the unit is on. I thougth at first maybe it had a loose foundation or something wasn't lock do correctly, but all those...

Hey Ryan,,, did you just buy these for commercial use? Sounds like one of them missed the "balance drum" operation..or the "balancer guy" goofed the set-up..
Warranty should cover it!! .. Don't tell where you bought it its a commercial usage.

Maytag gas dryer makes loud rattling noise. Not a squeaking noise, but something between a rattle and a fast, rhythmic knocking. Tumbler works, heat works, but insane noise.

sounds like the drum isnt balanced. either make sure appliance is properly balanced on the floor or make sure you are not overfilling the tub.

Washer is out of balance. it just leans to the left side and makes loud noise like metal on metal.

It sounds like your drum support, and/or balance mechanism inside the washing machine has broken. You will need to open your Washing machine and inspect the Drum Support, and the balance mechanism. Hook it back up or replace it if it is broken.

Making a loud noise when on the spin cycle and not balanced

It could be a drum spring has broken or stretched too far, there is too much of a heavy load in the drum, or the bearing needs replacing.

Machine drum makes loud noice in the spin cycle. Makes the same sound that a top-loading machine makes when it goes out of balance. Help.

  • Try these:
  1. Balance the load

Loud banging noise when machine goes into spin mode. sounds like it is banging on the side. Please help !

Usually this is an out-of-balance condition caused by too much weight on one side of the tub, move the clothes around and try again.

WF865 noise when spinning

Washers have to be balanced. Some have balance adjusters either inside the dryer as explianed above or on the bottom to level the washer. try to balance it by turning the bolts slightly or the bottom portion of the washer to level it. Or else they want to shake apart. Also by distributing the clothes evenly so it won';t be all to one side can help. do not tighten the screws all the way. Just tighten them to the point of getting the right balance.
