GRINDING NOISE - Maytag Atlantis MDE6400AY Electric Dryer

    Kenmore Oasis model 110.67072600, ser MT1603681 makes loud grinding noise. Opened back and found an inch long, inch diameter, piece of metal (cylindrical), on the bottom of the dryer. Lots of black dust all around it (metal). Still runs and dries clothes, for now. A little help would be great since I had to just replace the control board a couple months ago.

Definitely need more info. However, probable causes:

1. Broken/worn drive belt - replace belt.
2. Loose piece of debris between the inner drum and outer shell. - remove any alien/non-standard part/s found.

Both require access to the back/top of the unit. Standard tools may be required.

CAUTION: Ensure unit is unplugged before opening any cover. Most appliances are mass produced. As such be aware, units tend to have sharp edges inside.

Loud grinding noise


These are the bearing that the drum rides on. There are bearings in the back and the front. Replace all of them where you hear the grinding, front or back.

The dryer (Bosch Nexxt 500) makes a loud grinding noise when rotating. Any idea what this may be?


The noise could be your drum rollers need lubricant or replacement.
When the drum rollers get flat spots on them they will make a bumping/thumping type of noise.
The grinding noise sounds to me like the drum rollers are in need of lubrication.

Dryer doesn't want to run- makes grinding noise


its sounds like a worn bearing problem.with the m/c switch off ,turn drum by hand and see if it is hard to do so.if you get a gritty feeling in your hands or hear a grinding noise,then that is probably the bearing.

Dryer Making a Grinding Noise


The grinding noise is probably a worn out roller or the central bearing in the back. The center of the drum in the back has a part called a bearing which screws onto the back of the drum and has a stub which sticks out. The stub then goes into a bearing hole in the back panel of the dryer. If you are handy, you could try to replace yourself. I did it once. While you are at it, check the drum belt which goes around the drum and makes it spin. Replace it if looks like it has wear.
