Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
We overloaded the dryer and now the dryer is making a very sharp lloud noise when running. Im wondering if the belt is torn. Im not sure if i should look in to a repair person or if i should do it myself. Please let me know what part is damaged if you know and i will see if its worth my while to do it myself. thanks
The rear drum bushing or the front drum slides (or both) are probably worn out. You can view the rear drum bushing by removing the small plate in the center of the rear panel. Check if the center pin on the drum is touching the rear drum bushing housing. The rear bushing is made of plastic and is only about 1/16" thick, so look closely. If the loud noise is metal on metal at the rear drum bushing, replace the whole rear bushing assembly (drum center pin, bushing, and housing). Often, the front drum slides also need to be replaced. Check them before you buy the rear bushing. There are two at the bottom front of the drum and four more at the top front of the drum. You'll have to remove the front panel to check them.

Hey friend, I appreciate your post!
I understand that your Electrolux gas dryer is making a loud vibration noise and is also loud while tumbling. There are several components in your dryer that could be causing this noise. Based off what you are describing it might be an issue with your suspension rollers, motor, or pulley. Since it could be any of these underlying issues I would suggest getting a technician out to diagnosis and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful. - Matt
