Re: need help

Sounds like either the front or rear support bearings are worn. get a feel of the problem by moving the drum slowly with your hand and listening closely to it. noises are difficult to predict remotely let me know how you get on.

Dryer squeeks very loud. Still drys but noice is very schrill.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLER341A, is drying, but is making a very shrill and loud squeaking sound. There could be several possibilities that might be causing this sound. Please make sure your dryer is level. Check from side to side, front to back, and corner to corner. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How stop front loading electric dryer vibration while drum is rotating clothes.

110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.

My dryer makes a thump thump sound

  1. Thoroughly check the inside of the dryer for any foreign objects with hard surfaces. Sometimes items that fall out of pockets become stuck inside a dryer and make thumping noises.
  2. Check for level
  3. Make sure the dryer is level. A dryer that is out of level may not rotate properly. Banging or thumping noises from unleveled dryers are common, particularly if the dryer is resting against another metal object such as a washer.
  4. Check rollers
  5. If the thumping noises are present only for the first few minutes of the drying cycle the likely culprit is rollers. If the rollers are warped they will need to be replaced and a professional should be called in to help

I get a rather loud rumbling sound when I first start up the dryer the drum is turning but still getting the rumbling sound but not as loud.

Sounds like you need rear rollers or you have a bad blower wheel. If you turn the dryer off and still hear the rumble for a few seconds its the blower wheel. If the rumbling stops instantly then you have bad rear rollers. Hope this helps.

I have a matag performa model PYE2300AWY dryer that wont start. Jumped out the thermal fuse, and door switch still nothing. Whats next? Timmer?? HELP

Could be a burned lead, timer might be bad, or the water level switch could be bad. (Water level switch enables motor operation when the level is high enough.) Hope this gives you a good lead to check... Good luck.

Top loose, new dryer not level? rattle when start

No dryers are not self leveled. You may not have put the legs on ? they come in the box or if you have then you need to prop them up with a 1x4 or something.

Sounds like you have a bad magnatron tube, check your owners manual as most of them have a 10 year parts warranty.
