Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Dryer #63841

One day our dryer just suddenly started making this loud knocking noise. It sounded like it could be out of balance or something. I pulled it apart and found a 1 inch part of the belt that had lost it's rubber. I thought maybe it was that so I ordered the replacement kit. It came with the new belt, both wheels that the drum rides on, and a new tensioner pully. I installed all of those and the sound was still there. Then I pulled the cover off the blower and found all kinds of stuff (combs, pencils, pens, nails, mass amounts of lint) so I thought that might have been it. It is still making the same original sound. Any help?

Check the tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is next to the motor and the bearing may be shot.

Maytag gas dryer makes loud rattling noise. Not a squeaking noise, but something between a rattle and a fast, rhythmic knocking. Tumbler works, heat works, but insane noise.


sounds like the drum isnt balanced. either make sure appliance is properly balanced on the floor or make sure you are not overfilling the tub.

Kenmore 600 Series Gas Dryer, about 2 years old. Makes a loud scraping or rumbling sound as drum turns, not constant but in a cycle, as if off balance. I checked to be sure it is level. What are the likely...


Hi,
It is normal for the dryer to make sound due to the high velocity of air moving through the dryer drum and exhaust system.
A clicking noise may be the timer advancing.
Check the load for objects such as coins, nails, etc. Remove promptly from dryer.
It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element cycle on and off during the drying cycle.
The dryer should be level and installed on a solid floor.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

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.

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
