A scratching noise

My hotpoint nll113eyowo dryer makes a scraching noise when it is running, like the ones you hear when your brakes are old. Also there is some black rubber debris coming out from the center of the back of the dryer.

Re: a scratching noise

One, or both drum idler wheels has failed, the noise is the drum shaving rubber of the now stationary wheel.
Belts and Idlers are a standard item that fit many dryers, and your local parts guy has them on the shelf.
Replace both idlers and the belt at the same time, the other wheel and belt will fail soon cause of the extra load, and they are both as old as the first one, and you dont want to pull the dryer apart twice.

Re: a scratching noise

Just taking my best shot with the info....I would check the drum rollers and belt, either could leave black rubber powder as they wear.

My dryer is making a loud squeaking noise when it

All dryers have to have a way of allowing the tumbler (that's the thing you put the clothes in) to turn freely, not all of them are the same tho,some use bearings, some use slides,others use rollers. Over time these rollers will need to be oiled,the slides will get thin and start metal to metal contact causing a noise, The rear bearings will then start to make their way to china and cause the tumbler to rub into the heating element and OUCH! These things will cause the motor to prematurely DIE! Its best to examine the dryers, rollers, and slides when you first hear the noise, but who does?

Dryer doesn't want to run- makes grinding noise

its sounds like a worn bearing problem.with the m/c switch off ,turn drum by hand and see if it is hard to do so.if you get a gritty feeling in your hands or hear a grinding noise,then that is probably the bearing.

New Maytag dryer model mgdc400vw makes loud humming noise

Weird, try making sure it is level, and make sure your vent pipe aint too long. Tip the cabinet back while running if the noise goes away the damn metal vent pipe is too dang long.

Tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin

Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

My hotpoint vtd20 tumble dryer will not start. I was using it then when I put a second load in and pressed start - nothing happened. The power light is on but no tumbling!

If you can hear the motor running but no tumble action then belt has come off.
Make sure the door is shut properly..
If it gets hot at the back, then you are difinately getting power to everything.
If you can hear a slight buzzing noise, then the motor is failing to start, probably due to a faulty start capacitor.

Just buzzes

 the only thing you can do to possibly solve this problem without a professional is to:
  • tape down the door switch with strong tape, or have someone else hold it down.
  • physically turn the tub inside the dryer while pushing the start switch.
  • this will hopefully loosen whatever has the motor stuck.
if this does not work then the motor in the dryer might be bad or going bad, especially if a burning smell is present when you hear the humming sound.
