Hi, Thee dryer makes a loud noise during cycle. It starts low, but it seems after each rotation it get louder. Has anyone ever experienced this and are there any solutions. Thanks for any assistance.


Describe the noise. If its a rattling banging noise you could have a broken exhaust fan which is usually attached to the motor, a broken cylinder roller (if your dryer has them) or worn felts. Maybe a noisy pulley. If its more a high pitched squeek it could be your motor or the parts just mentioned. A metal scraping noise could be something like a bra wire caught by the cylinder but I don't see how that can get louder as the rotates. Make sure the belt isn't cracked all over. Worst case scenario is that your motor is on its way out...
Good luck

Dryer is making a rattling noise when in operation. Dryer is eight years old of so. Never heard this noise before.


Rattling could be anything from a bad idler or support pulley or coins in the vanes. If you can hear it you can find it pretty easily.

Rattling noise


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
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 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.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Hello
Some dryers use a motor driven drum.If there is a piece of belt missing this could cause a thud noise.

Also the drum rests in rollers,if a roller is missing or worn this could also be your noise.

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer - rattling noise


Your probably going to have to remove the rear panel and take a look to see what is causing the noise.
Disconnect the power cord and exhaust tube, remove the rear panel and check for anything loose.
You can also pop the lid and fold it back to inspect the top of the tub and belt. Roll the drum all the way around and inspect the belt for "chunks" missing.
If you include your model number, I can send you a web site that will show you an exploded view of the dryer.

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
