I have a Kenmore Stacked Washer/Dryer (Model 417.91702000) that has had the same thing happen. I have replace mine twice . . .It is the rear dryer bearing.

You can purchase a kit that contains everything to replace it.

You have to work from the front, all the way to the back.

Make sure that you also check the felt pad glide on the front door panel (the drum rotates on this). You may need to replace it also, it should have teflon pads built into the felt that the drum rests on . . .

There are three screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the dryer. Remove these screws and the panel will slide back, then lift off. You should have access the outer perimeter of the drum, control board and control panel.

If you need to access the dryer bottom cabinet, remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the dryer up can offer better access to the toe panel screws ( a section of 2x4 works well for this).

There are some helpful exploded view diagrams you can use for reference at these following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com

Small items (like coins) can often get caught in the dryer drum baffles. They come off easily by removing the screws that hold them on place around the drum perimeter.

CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before servicing anything inside the cabinet. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer drum or rollers or bearings are squeaking on my Kenmore 970-C69042-00 clothes dryer. How do I best trouble-shoot and repair it?


Instructions
    • 1 Turn off the gas to a gas dryer or unplug an electric one. Move the dryer from its position at least 3 feet from the wall. This will give you room to work. Pulling the dryer out into an even more open space may make this easier.
    • 2 Push the putty knife in between the top and main body of the dryer on the front of the dryer. Slide the putty knife near the corner closest to you. Push the knife and pull up to release the pins that hold the top onto the body.

    • 3 Lift the top off the body using a screwdriver as a lever.
    • 4 Label the wires that are connected to the front of the dryer. Make note of which wire goes where. Unclip the wires from the clip that holds them, remove the wires and place them to the side. You will be reattaching these wires later. Be sure to mark them so that you can place them back in order later.
    • 5 Remove the screws that hold the fount of the dryer onto the rest of it. There should be four on most models.
    • 6 Pull the front towards you until the drum inside comes loose from its bearing. Slide the front panel up to reveal the pulleys at the bottom of the machine.
    • 7 Grab the idler pulley. It is the one in front of the motor. Move it to the right to disengage the belt. Remove the belt. Do not remove the belt that goes to the drum.
    • 8 Put on your gloves and slide the drum out of the dryer. Be sure to use hand protection as the edges may be sharp.
    • 9 Inspect the two rollers. If they appear damaged, or you find metal dust under them, your rollers need replacing.
    • 10 Remove the plastic clip on the right hand side if the right roller needs replacing. Remove the metal friction plate, metal brace and plastic clip on the left hand side if the left roller needs replacing.
    • 11 Put on the new rollers and reattach the parts you removed.
    • 12 Slide the drum back in and grab the idler pulley. Pull the pulley to the left until the belt is tight.
    • 13 Slide and screw the front into place and reattach the top.

Hi huyghe234...
You have two problems
1...Felt seal is damaged or missing from the front of the drum causing the zipper feet to be snatched off and ripping and tearing clothes
2...Drum rollers have flat spots on them causing a thumping noise.
Here are a few things that may help you.
Please take time to rate me
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.

If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken or you forget how to route your beltof your dryer:
http://www.expertappliance.com/dryerbeltconfiguration.html

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Our 400 series electric dryer was making a really loude sound the day before it quit it'd bang against the washer as if the drum was loose the next day tried to use it the light comes on and stuff but...


You could have two problems.
1...Broken Belt, no allowing the drum to turn
2...Flat spots on your drum rollers are making your noise
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1....http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG

If you hear a loud bang while your dryer is working, and you notice that the
drum has stopped turning, chances are the drivebelt has snapped.
Fortunately, replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward operation that
can be handled with a few simple tools.
First, unplug the dryer. Lift the lint-screen cover and pull out the lint screen
If your dryer has a lint screen on the inside of the door, skip this step.
Then remove the two screws that are under the cover. To unlatch the dryer top,
insert a thin-blade putty knife between the top and front panel,
about 2 1/2 in. in from one corner. Push in on the knife to release the locking
clip, lift the corner, then release the clip on the other side. Swing the top
up and lean it against the wall.
Next, move to the lower toe panel. Slip the putty knife between the lower panel
and the door panel at one side and twist the knife to release the clip
Then release the opposite clip and lift the panel up and off the hinge springs.
To support the dryer drum while the belt is being replaced, place scrap wood
under the front of the drum.
Loosen the two screws at each side of the bottom of the front panel.
Move to the top of the panel and remove the screws from the inside of the
cabinet that hold the front panel to the sides.
Slide the old belt off the drum.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing the belt
Lean the front panel out slightly and allow the drum to rest on the scrap wood
support. Drop the new dryer belt between the front panel and the drum, and
loop it over the drum. Then, lift the drum slightly while pushing the front
panel back into position.
Replace the screws at the top inside of the front panel, tighten the lower panel
screws and remove the scrap wood from under the drum. Check to make sure that
the rear drum seal fits properly over the lip on the rear bulkhead.
Position the new belt where the old belt was, with the grooved side of the belt
facing down.
Now, move to the motor area and pull out the old belt. To route the new belt
around the idler and drive pulley, first pass the entire belt, doubled up,
under the idler pulley. Then, push the idler belt toward the motor, slip the
belt around the motor pulley and release the tension on the idler pulley.

Open the dryer door and rotate the drum counterclockwise a few times to make
sure the belt is tracking properly. Lower the top and press down at each
corner to engage the clips. Lift the lint-screen cover, replace the two screws
and reinstall the lint screen. Finally, secure the lower front panel and turn
on the dryer for a test.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2...ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Inside the dryer there are 3 bars that stick out to help tumble the clothes. One of them has come loose and I'm not sure how to tighten it. It appears to be attached with screws that come thru the drum...


With the front off look up in the top left and right corners for some screws that hold the top of the dryer to the side panels. Depending on your model, there can be different styles. The old maytags used 3/8 in screws up inside the corners and the newer models had 5/16 screws right up front.
Once you get the front of the top loose you will be able to lift it like the hood on a car to gain access to the drum.
Rotate the drum by hand to put your loose fin at the top and tighten up your screws. Sometimes the screws will round out the holes on the drum too much and you may want to put a washer on the screw to secure it better.
Good luck!

Not too bad. Unplug. Remove three screws along back, at top edge. Stand in front of dryer and, using the palms of your hands, push back sharply on the top (L & R sides) to slide it back about 2 inches, then lift top off. Remove 2 phillips head screws at 5 and 7 O'clock position behind door. Remove screws holding top control from top corners. Pull top of control panel loose from retaining clips along top. (watch for sharp edges) Set control panel on top of dryer. Remove 4 screws now accessable at top of front panel. Un-plug light, door switch, lift front panel off, and unplug sensor at bottom. Set front panel aside. Remove 4 screws at front of side panel holding front bulkhead (with drum rollers attached), lift up bulkhead and remove. Reach under drum to unhook belt. Remove drum. The hardest part is pobably hooking the belt back on with the tension pulley while reassembling. On a scale of 1 - 10, it rates about a 5.5. First one might take an hour and a half. If you've done a few, you can knock 'em out in about 20 minutes.

When dryer is running it makes a knocking noise


Remove 2 screws under lint screen, pry up the top, with thin blade screw driver, remove 2 screws on both sides inside the side walls,5/ 16 socket or nut driver, this releases the front of the dryer. Pull away at top and up to remove the front, 2 clips at the bottom hold it in place. Disconnect the belt from the idler and remove the drum. You will see 2 rollers at the rear bulkhead that supports the drum. Replace these rollers and also the belt idler if worn and the belt if it has heat cracks. Reverse all you have done to get it back together.

Grease type substance inside


Hello. I know exactly what is wrong with your dryer.

If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

My kenmore series dryer is making noise as it runs. It heats but makes a noise as if coins are in the dryer. I cannot see anything from inside the dryer, is there a way to remove the front face of the...


there's 2 basic ways to removing the front panel. First is 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel, when removed the panel can be lifted and un-hinged from the top. The other is by using a flat screw driver and prying the top up at the edges on the front side the removing 2 screws or hex screws located inside the front panel toward the top. make sure you undo door swich wires before completely removing the front panel. then in the middle of the drum on the inside of it either 1-3 screws hold the drum to the back. Remove belt first then screws then pull drum straight out. The noise may be from your rear drum bearing or coins have gotten in the paddles of the drum(inside) paddles can be removed. I had coins in one of my paddles, made 60some cents lol at same time found perfctly round lint balls. Good Luck

Back of dryer


Always disconnect power
  • Kenmore,
    the Front comes off, the back is fixed and rigid.
  1. remove the lint screen
  2. remove the screws that hold the lint screen holder to the lid
  3. there are spring clips at the front corners that can be pressed in with a putty knife or other blunt blade to unlock the top cover.
  4. raise the top
  5. there are screws either side of the front, inside the case points to the front heads to the rear, remove them,
  6. unplug the door switch, lift front off drum and supports and away.
reassemble in reverse

easy access to drum to remove it and replace felt ring, rollers belts.
When you replpace the belt, you should check the felt bearing around the open end of the drum, and the pully/idler wheels as well.
Often the cause of the belt breaking is the extra force needed to turn the drum when the felt or rollers are fubar.
