Question about Dryers
Hotpoint WD61 8 years old. Tumble drys OK, but makes a very loud buzzing noise while it does it. What might be wrong?
There are a few things that could cause that...
First, make sure that you do not have a loose electrical connection. Make sure that you remove ALL power to the dyer and check the connection at the power cord in the back, that everything is tight. If the connections are overheated and burnt you will need to replace them.
Next, make sure that there is nothing stuck in the blower/fan part of the dryer. It is possible for somethings to get through the lint screen and flapp against the blower wheel and cause a buzz. The dryer may have to be dissasembled quite a bit to get to the blower.
Finally it may be a symptom of the motor going bad. Usually if that is happening the motor will pull high amps. also. To check this turn your dryer on at a fan only or no heat setting and check the amp draw. Check the name plate rating on the motor to see if the current draw is hgiher than it should be.
