WBVH6240FWW loud bang

that would be the bearing and housing gone on the drum, if you can lift the drum with your fingers at the bottom of the drum in the door hatch even by putting lifting inside then the bearing has gone. the plastic is the drum.housing usually were the bearing housing is. if there is a lot of movement then the bearing has gone. usually the front bearing but you will need to remove the drum and separated the drum to remove the drum then the bearing, rust on clothing is the bearing as its the only part in the drum that is metal.

My dryer is making a really loud noise when the clothes are spinning in the dryer. There is a loud rumble and squealling noise.

The squealing noise coming from your dryer is caused by the front glides located on the top bearing, they act like a pad against the drum and when gone, will make an awful squealing. part number for the 4 glides that may be needed is WE3X87 this is a common problem as it is a wearable part. if you don`t replace these in time it will grind all the way through your top bearing and start to deteriorate your drum. if its been like this for a while you may also need a GE drum bearing they come in short and long sizes. and are relatively cheap to replace.hope this helps

The dryer makes a loud squealing noise when running most of the time. Think it is a belt or bearing but cannot figure how to get inside. Top has 2 screws that cannot be reached with standard straignt screw...

Normally you would remove the front of the dryer, then it makes for easy acess of the drum and rollers..
The noise is probably your rollers, either needs lube or replacement

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

Makes a loud clunk once per drum revolution. There is a mark on the outside of the drum and I think it's hitting the motor housing. Could this be the drum bearing? Is it worth repairing? It is a IS60V

Me GE elec. dryer is screeching, how do I solve this problem

First, stop using the dryer. It is telling you "I'm broken".

Several things can cause the noise you are describing:

1. Belt is slipping. Lost proper amount of tension on the tension pulley as spring has become weak.

2. Rear drum bearing has rubbed completely through and the drum is now riding on the metal support, This can cut into the drum support and trash it.

3. Tension pulley has got bearings that have gone dry (bad). Fix is to replace pulley.

4. Chance that the bearings in the motor itself have gone dry (Bad). Some you can oil and some are sealed. In either case, if they are making this noise, they are probably no good and motor needs replacing.

Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.
