Kenmore dryer making excessive noise

Dryer started making screeching noises over the weekend. You'll hear it for a while and then it goes away. Now it won't turn on. I think it's only 4 years old. Could the motor bearings be shot. I am going to take it apart in the morning and check it out.

    My dryer (110.62612101 in which I couldn't find on here; 5 years old) did the same thing yesterday and completely conked out after about an hour of doing so. Prior to that, I have been having to manually turn the dryer off for about 2 years now because it would not turn off or advance towards off on its own. Other than that it worked fine, which is why I'm trying to see if it will be cheaper to figure out what is wrong with both problems and fix or get a new dryer.

    Thought it was the bearings but it was the rollers. Everything new inside so it should last a while longer.

Likely the main drum bearing in the back. I have seen these go bad, and loud squeaky noise tells you. You can get a new main bearing and replace. It is in the center of the back of the drum, accessee through back panel of dryer usually.

My Kenmore Dryer, Mdl #86681800 won't start when hot


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.

The dryer makes a scraping noise when it has a full wet load. if you lighten the load by about half the noise goes away, except when it first starts up.

My kenmore elite HE4 electric dryer is making a screeching/high pitched noise. It would dry the clothes, but I can't stand the noise. Before the noise started the dryer would occassionally not start if...


Hi- The bearing(s) might be worn or the drum wheels sticking but if it is not starting sometimes you most likely have a motor issue. You'll need someone to come out and take a look at it.
