The dryer is making a knocking sound when running. The sound has increased lately. What may be the cause of the noise?


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to repla

Start button does not kick the dryer on


Looks like your drive motor is locked up. It has an internal overload switch which cuts power off when motor gets too hot...Replacement of the motor on a used dryer is probably not the best choice as it can be quite pricey..

When the dryer is running it is really noisey. We should have returned it but didn't


Sounds like something is caught between the drum and dryer (inside) or the drum bearings are going bad. Normally sounds like a squeaking then get to a grinding noise (not good)

Hi,
This could be caused by an internal thermal overload switch. These usually have a limited life span in any appliance that uses heating elements. Try to locate the overload switch which usually looks like a small diode or resistor. You can determine if this is the cause by bridging the switch with a piece of wire, then trying the dryer once more.

Hi,
Appliances which use heating elements almost always have an internal overload protection switch. This overload usually looks like a small diode or resistor somewhere on your incomming power inside the machine. Try to find this overload and bridge it out and try the machine again. These overloads usually have a rather limited life span and are most often the cause of a "dead" machine.
