    Hi - you mentioned the "right" roller. Does that mean there is a left roller, too? If so, how do you know the right roller is the bad one?

Whirlpool dryer leq8611lw0 shakes violently and makes loud noise


Something must be inside the blower wheel. I cannot imagine why it would shake like that. This dryer has 4 wheels instead of 2 so it oughta be stable. The only thing to do is get inside the machine and see what is causing it. The dryer with a filter inside is also sometimes known as a series 90 dryer. Look for some series 90 dryer videos on youtube. Like this crappy one I made:

The dryer works but makes a loud thumping noise model#GLEQ642AS2


All dryers have some type of roller system that supports the drum as it turns. It sounds like one of the rollers or roller bearings has worn and is making that thumping noise. If you have some basic skills and good general mechanical sense you could fix it yourself. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before you attempt anything.

New dryer makes a loud thumping full or


I hope he did nt charge you. Because of the seam in a dryer drum, they do make a slight thumping noise but it should not be real loud. I hope the tech took the dryer apart and checked the rollers. One of them may have a flat spot.
I would ask for a factory represent ive to come out and see if they think they would want a dryer in there home that make that much noise.
Please rate solution

Dryer makes a loud thumping noise when running


A thumping sound in your dryer could be caused by a flat spot on one of the drum support rollers. It can also be caused by a problem with the drum. An idler pulley on for the belt on the drive motor can also make a thumping noise when the dryer is running. Check to see if the cabinet is properly leveled with 4 feet firmly on the floor. Push down on opposing corners to check for play. Adjust the leveling legs if necessary.
Without a model number of your Whirlpool dryer, I am not able to provide much more help. If your dryer has the lint filter that pushes down into the top panel of the dryer, then here are a few tips for accessing the inside of the cabinet:
  • Unplug the dryer to disconnect electrical power.
  • Pull the lint screen out.
  • Remove the screws that secure the top panel to the lint screen housing.
  • Use a putty knife to release the clips on the front of the top panel (about 4" in from each side) that secure it to the dryer frame.
  • Hinge the top panel up and back.
This will provide to access to the inside of the dryer cabinet. Manually spin the drum in a counterclockwise direction and see if you can determine the source of the noise.If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Whirlpool dryer.

Loud squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
