Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

3 Answers

Dryer making very loud noise.

Our dryer is only a year and a half old. I put in a medium load of towels and after about 25 minutes I heard a very loud thump noise and the dryer turned off. I re-started it and immediately it started making a constant, very loud rattling kind of noise. But it almost sounds like something is off track. It is still drying really good but the noise is very loud and annoying and I'm sure the sound can't mean anything good. Any suggestions?
It is a 400 series Kenmore electric dryer. And the model number is 110.
I couldn't find that in the part where it asks for Product so I just put the kenmore 63942 dryer.

    What do you look for and how do you fix it?  I have an older Whilrlpool Large Capacity Dryer (LE5320XT) - I think the drum is loose...and what's the easiest way to get the front off?

We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.

If you want the best solution just buy a new dryer.

Take the front off and then use a light to look at the belt that goes around the drum of the dryer. It will be that or one of the rollers or the drum may be loose - The drum rides on rollers at the back and it slides around on the front.

Hotpoint WD 865- washes ok, dryer won't work makes loud popping


sounds like the dryer heater element has worked loose perhaps and shorted out against the metal dryer box which sits on top of the drum.
best to get an engineer out i'd say.

Clunking whirlpool drier


rollers and or felts are cheap,
much cheaper than a new dryer,
and nobody now makes a dryer that will last 25 years.
I have maytags 1972, 1974, kenmore 1968, speed queen 1980,
in each apartment building used by 11 families, to keep them running costs peanuts

new dryers?, - 3 years is all you get before the $$$ starts

Loud noise


Got tipped sideways or other in move and the drum is not on the runners.(Felt front and Bogey/rear)... (Some of these you can reposition buy lifting the drum up from the inside and adjust realigning)..

They can make a racket!
