Drum is making alot of noise as it goes around . what do I look for?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

It may not be your motor that is whining, it may be the drum rollers in need of lubrication or maybe the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys.

My dryer is making alot of noise as if there is a bearing going out. When I open the door, the drum stops almost immediately. I have the back off so I can see the belt is still on and I can turn the belt...

Very noisey


the belt is wrapped through a belt tensioner with a roller. The bearing in the roller is bad causing the noise you hear. Sears sells the tensioner roller with the belt which is recommended to replace both at the same time
