Ge Dryer making loud rumbling noise

My GE Dryer (4years old) makes a loud rumbling noise while drying. It dries clothes just fine and there are no other issues, but the noise is rather loud-the dryer doesn't move or **** at all it's just the really loud rumbling sound. Any ideas????

    I have the same problem. I have already taken it apart and replaced the front glides and bearing slides which were worn completely through and the rear bearing that goes behind the drum where the shaft connects to the back.

    Our GE dryer has just recently starting making a rumbling noise of unknown origin. Its 5 years old. It is still functioning, but something is not right. I was hoping it might be the rear bearing or glides and was unhappy to see that some else with similar problem replaced those with no success. My top is off and drum out, but I dont see any obvious problems and was looking here for possible solutions. If I find one, I will surely post.it. Very glad to see the information here that I am not the only one with the problem.

    I have the same problem. My dryer started making a loud rumbling noise a few days ago, and I opened it up. I could see that the glides were getting worn a little bit, but obviously not the problem. I was going to order the rear bearing kit until I saw this post. Is it the motor making the noise? Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

I would check your blower wheel. I went through a similar situation after replacing the belt. It would start up and the rumbling was terrible (though it worked). I fooled around with the rollers. Then ran without the belt..it was apparent it had nothing to do with the barrel. Checked the blower and a couple of blades had broken off. It was enough to throw it out of balance. Slapped on a new blower fan..all is well.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

I have a stackable washer/dryer gas maytag. Purchased around 17 years ago. The dryer is not drying clothes. Gas is powered fine and it is heating up. The cycle seems shorter than normal


Hello,
The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.

Dryer makes rumbling noise intermittently


It sounds like a faulty roller under the drum. Need to pop the top of the dryer, then remove the front -- you'll probably easily spot the faulty part.
