Sounds as if the drum supports are bad. Replace the rollers that the drum glides on and should be good to go.

Problem with tumble dryer that has started making loud noise.


Dryers are designed to operate in one direction. Some models turn clockwise and some turn counter-clockwise. Do not run it backwards. The direction of air flow will be impeded or reversed.

I think a sensor is being faulty when you load and go to use the unit. Also might want someone to check out the timer on the unit just in case it is going out on you.

Maybe the heat in your dryer over time has melted weak glue and loose components are hitting against the drum

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Kenmore 110.86980800 Dryer making loud banging noise but works


Try this link: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/11086980800/0582/0151200.html?searchType=modelSearch&q=110.86980800&searchTerm=110.86980800. Under Troubleshooting, click on "Making noise or vibrating". Most likely one of the dryer drum support rollers is bad. The parts bag will have two rollers so you can replace both of them while you have your machine apart. You will find the instructions on how to replace a roller by following the link on that page. Not a very difficult job. I didn't even have to pull the dryer out of the utility closet. Most time consuming part was vacuuming and wiping off everything inside. Went thru a lot of paper towels. The triangular retainers where a bit of a challenge to remove. I recommend some small needle nose pliers and don't worry about damaging these retainers since you get four new ones in the parts bag with the two rollers. The retainers go on both sides of the rollers and fit in a groove on the shaft. When putting the new retainers back on I used a 3/8 nut driver to initially push them on. A small regular screwdriver might also come in handy in getting the triangular retainers past the first groove. Only other surprise for me was the roller on the left side required the removal of a bracket held on by a type of washer retainer which worked on the pinching concept to remain in place. I ended up getting behind it with a small regular screwdriver, then moved it a little ways down the shaft. Then I grabbed it with some pliers and pulled it off. Wonder what engineer figured that one out. A new retainer comes in the parts package. Your dryer might vary a little bit (mine is a Kenmore 110.86873100 electric model) so take pics if you want. One other thing. I supported the front of the dryer drum with my dust buster while I took pics of the motor and pulley system before removing the belt from the motor shaft and pulley tensioner. I also used the dust buster as support when reinstalling the dryer drum. Good luck with the heating element. I haven't had to deal with that problem yet.

Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator- compressor makes a loud noise


The compressor is that black casing you see at the bottom of your refrigerator - inside this sealed case is the motor assembly which stits on 3 or 4 springs that act like a cushion - you have a little gap at the bottom where the lubricating oil is present. Your springs have likely worn out and when the compressor shuts off the assembly is banging against the rigid casing make that loud "klonk" or bang noise. It IS normal for compressor to make some faint "tick-tick-tick...tick.....tick" when shutting off, but loud banging, bell sounds, etc, means the assembly is banging on the case from the inside - you can indeed live with the noise, your compressor will function normally, probably for months, or even years - it can also keep wearing out and one day the noise might get very loud (like a very high humming noise) - There is NOTHING that can be fixed, you either pay $400+ to change the compressor or buy a new refrigerator - If you DO replace a compressor usually the replacement will be noisier - Keep a thermostat inside your refrigerator at all time to make sure your compressor is still keeping your refrigerator and freezer cool.
