The most likely cause is a slipping drive belt from the motor to the drum. Check the tension on the belt, but if the belt is worn, replace it. If the belt has been slipping for a period of time , it will probably be worn out.
Motor making a buzzing sound, is the motor actually turning? If so it is probably the belt.
If motor not turning, try taking the drive belt off and if the motor now runs, you may have seized drum bearings = expensive, buy a new dryer !
The most likely reason it that the electric motor is failing; the thermal protector on the motor is resetting after the motor cools down. The buzzing is due to a locked rotor in the motor while it is overheated.
Another much less likely possibility is that there is excessive drag on the drum causing the motor to overheat because it is working too hard spinning the drum. Excess drag is due to worn rollers, etc.
Try rotating the drum in the CORRECT direction by hand and see if it seems really hard to rotate. You can try this on a friend or relatives machine to see how much drag is normal.
To determine which way is the correct rotation, just start the dryer, open the door and look fast! To test, just turn it in the same direction as it was rotating before it stopped.
i had the same problem.it ended up being the bearing that holds the drum in place.it had worn that bad that the drum was rubbing the bottom of the dryer.the bearing is located on the back of the dryer if the bearing is worn there will be like black dust around the area.this does stain so be carefull
Sounds like you have a bad drum bearing. It's seems loud because the clothes drum aplifies the noise. Depending how old it is will determine if repairing is worth the cost. Once you have decided that, replace the drum belt and check all bearings including motor. Clean out all lint which can become a fire hazard.
window.google_render_ad();There are many places & parts that could be causing your Whirlpool
dryer to be noisy.
To find out what is causing the noises, you
need to find out where are the noises coming from.
Start the dryer and let it run for a while and listen to try to
pinpoint where in the dryer the noises is coming from. Once you have
an idea of the area, you will need to disconnect the dryer from the
wall outlet and take the dryer apart.
Below you will find the parts that you need to check when your
dryer is noisy. The drum baffles:
The drum baffles are use to tumble the clothes inside of
the drum, in other words, the baffles job is to separate the pieces
of laundry as the drum turns.
When the dryer is getting older and if you use the dryer a lot,
the drum baffles holding screws will become loose. Loose drum
baffles will cause noises. All you need to do, is to open the top
panel and tighten the drum baffles holding screws.
The drum support rollers:
These dryers uses four drum support rollers, tow on the
front and two on the rear. The job of the drum support rollers is to
keep the drum tumbling smooth.
When the grease on one of the rollers dry out, the roller start
to make squeaking noises and the roller bearing will start to wear
out until the bearing on the roller is gone. When the bearing on the
roller is gone, the noise will change from squeaking to a clanking
The blower wheel:
The blower wheel is use to circulate the air inside of
the dryer drum. The most common Whirlpool blower noises are cause by
something falling inside of the blower housing and hitting the
blower when the motor runs.
The Idler pulley:
The Idler pulley is use to apply the necessary tension on
the belt. There are two types of idler pulleys, the pulley with the
wheel and the pulley with the teflon slide. A bad idler pulley could
cause a Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
The drive motor:
Worn out bearings on the motor will cause the motor to
run kind of noisy. When the motor starts making noises, the solution
to this problem is to replace the motor.
The belt on most dryers is only about1/4 inch wide. These
belts work very hard making the drum tumble. When the belt stretch
just 1/2 inch more that it supposed to, the belt will start slipping
and that could cause your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
As you could see, there are a lot of parts that could become
noisy in your dryer. When your dryer starts making noises, make sure
to check it out before it gets worse.
you need to check the blower fan. the motor has a "D" shaped shaft. over time the blower wears, the motor will spin but the blower does not. the air flow stops and the drier over heats. replace the blower and it should be fine.
