Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Noisy dryer I have had model DLG330RAW gas dryer for five years. Two weeks ago it started making noise as if coins were tossing around in the drum. It has started getting worse. It isn't the clothing buttons or zippers as it still makes the noise when drying towels. Thank you, Libbey

Tis possible that cons have gotten stuck within the veins( tub paddles) of the dryer drum, if thats the case youlll be able to rotate the drum around by hand and actually hear them tumble around as you turn them around.if thats the case tou will need to unscrew the tub baffles from the outside of the drum remove debris and resecure.DISCONNECT POWER SUPPLY
first remove 2 5/16 screws holding the lower access panel. and behind that panel 2 more 5/16 screws. lift that panel foward and it will release from under the main lid(2 clips holdin it in). mark the 3 wiresd and disconnect the door switch.2 final 5/16 screws in either corner is holding the main lid assy down, remove them and your able to flip the main top back. you now have access to the outside of the drum all you need to do is rotate around find the screws holding baffles and clean them out

Noisy on spin cycle


It's very difficult to advise on a noisy washing machine because you can't describe noises accurately enough. People often describe the same noises quite differently.

Generally though, if a washing machine is rumbling, and noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings have probably gone.

Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure is a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust.

Other causes of a noisy washing machine are coins and other obstructions inside the water pump. This will cause noise when the washing machine is emptying the water. Coins or other obstructions can get trapped between the outer tub and the inner drum. This would produce a lot of noise on spin as they coins get tossed around inside. Usually, spinning the drum by hand will not reproduce the noise in the case of coins as the coins drop to the bottom of the tub when the washing machine isn't spinning.

A light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand is usually a bra wire trapped between the tub and drum.

A high pitched squealing or harsh noise can be motor bearing wear. This can also be checked for by taking the belt off and running the motor alone.

A knocking noise can be a loose tub weight. This would be worse with heavy loads and would not be present on spin with no washing in. This is because the knocking noise is caused when the tub (or outer drum) shakes about on spin. Without washing inside the drum the tub doesn't move. Another symptom of a loose tub weight is grey concrete dust under the washing machine.

It's very tempting to ignore noises while the washing machine is still otherwise working. Some noises can be ignored as they will not develop into serious faults. Other noises, if left, will cause extensive damage and can end up costing considerably more than if tackled early or these days writing the washing machine off. Of course the problem is that you can't tell which of the categories a noise falls into - so ignore them at your own risk.

The drum is sagging and making contact with the motor housing causing a loud screeching and cutting a line around the drum


you need to replace the felt runners on the inside they are about 2 inches wide and 3/4 tall there should be 4 of them

When the drum gros around, it sounds as if a coin


Hi The noise you are hearing is coming from the baffles inside the drum. These are attatched to the drum with screws from the outside of the drum. Something as gotten inside these baffles and causing the moise.
Remove the front ot top panel (Depending on what model) and take the screws out so the baffle releases.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

GE dry is making a noise like loose change is rolling around


There may be change rolling around in it.
Remove the top. Take the screws out of the drum baffles and remove the coins from inside the dryer drum baffles.
When replacing them, tighten them well to help prevent coins from getting in there.

Maytag gas Dryer is Noisy


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.
