It is makeing a lot of noise


Hello. You didn't provide a brand/model number or the type of noise the unit is making. If the dryer is making a screeching noise, it's probably the idler pulley(spring-loaded tensioner pulley that keeps the drum belt tight so the electric motor can turn the drum properly) being worn out or binding up due to lint build-up in the dryer. However, if the dryer is "thumping" loudly, most likely it's a worn out support roller either on the front or rear bulkhead. They're made of hard rubber and can become malformed due to wear/age causing a rough movement of the drum as it spins.

I HAD MY DC17 VAC FOR 3 YRS NOW NO PROBLEMS AT ALL, I REGULARLY CLEAN THE FILTER LIKE IT SAYS BUT LATELY I'VE NOTICE THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT MORE COLLECTION ON THE TOP OF THE FILTER WHEN I'M DONE...


The vac is over heating. First, you should try a new filter. Also, keep in mind that after cleaning the filter, make sure that it fully dries. Using a wet or damp filter clogs it quickly. Second, turn the vac upside down and make sure that the roller is fully cleaned and free of hairs and strings. Afterwards, with the vac upside down, quickly power on and make sure that the roller spins and listen carefully for noise at the roller. There may be something stuck inside. If it doesn't spin, verify that the belt has not slipped off or broken.
Good luck.

Roller does not turn


Hello,

When a Dyson DC07 makes this horrible grinding noise, it can only mean one of three things.

The Dyson DC07 uprights use a clutch mechanism to control the brush spinning when you change the floor / carpet switch. When you hear this grinding noise, it's actually the clutch slipping because it can not spin the roller brush. Most other uprights use a belt to spin the roller brush, and if something is stuck in the roller brush it will cause the belt to break. Dyson's however will make that awful grinding noise rather then breaking the belt, and will only make that noise if the roller brush can not spin.

When you hear this noise on a Dyson, it can only be 1 of 3 things. Either your clutch mechanism itself has gone bad, or the roller brush itself was not properly put back into the vacuum, or the brush itself has gone bad.

I'll be happy to walk you through step by step on how to diagnosis this problem and find out which one of these two parts is bad on your vacuum2_bing.gif.

Step 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Then turn the vacuum upside down so that the brushes are facing up. It's easiest if you put the head of the vacuum on top of a bench, or counter top. This is how the vacuum should look:

b45ef25.jpg
Step 2. You see on the bottom of the vacuum 3 plastic screws that are usually the same color as the vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif. If you're vacuum is purple, the screws will also be purple. Use a flat head screwdriver, and turn each of the 3 screws a half of a turn, counter clockwise to loosen then. After each screw has been turned (you don't need to remove the completely, just a half of a turn is all), simply pull upwards on the bottom plate to remove it.

Step 3. You should now be able to see the roller brush exposed. You'll now need to remove the roller brush. This will take some patience, and some work in order to get this brush out of the vacuum. There is a special tool that has been designed to help you get the brush out easier. I would try getting the brush out first before buying this special tool. The easiest way is to use a flat head screw driver and pry the belt up while pulling up and out on the brush. With some patience and some maneuvering, you'll be able to get the brush out of the vacuum. Here's where you should put the flat head screw driver on the brush:

Step 4. Once you get the belt out of the vacuum cleaner, it's time to test it. Use your finger tips to hold just the end caps on the very end of the roller brush. While holding just the end caps, use your thumbs to try and spin the roller brush. Does the brush spin freely? It should rotate completely several times on each spin. If the brush doesn't spin, or you feel some kind of resistance to the brush spinning, then this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad. Here's a picture of how to test the brush:

If the roller brush went bad, then you'll need to purchase a new one. Here's a direct link to the roller brush your machine uses on our website GoVacuum:
http://www.govacuum.com/dysondc07.html


If the brush however was able to spin freely, and it spun multiple times, this indicates that most likely the brush was not put back in properly, or it could be a little more serious of problem in the clutch itself has gone bad. The clutch replacement repair is a much longer, more challenging repair to do. There is a very helpful video on how to replace the clutch below so that you may follow step by step instructions on how to change it. It was really helpful for me the first time I did this repair.

I think more likely however it's probably that the brush was not put back in properly, and this caused the brushes not to be able to spin, which would cause the clutch to make that horrible noise. Make sure that the roller brush is pictured like the brush above, you may also want to make sure that the bottom plate is put on correctly, this could also prevent the brush from spinning:

Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:

Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:

If you need to replace the clutch, here's a direct link to the clutch your Dyson DC07 uses on our website:

Here's the video on how to replace the clutch:


When you hear that grinding noise, it can only be one of these three problems. This clutch mechanism was so problematic that Dyson removed it on the second series of the DC07 models. I hope that this repair was helpful in diagnosing your problem. If you have any questions about the diagnosing, or the clutch change, please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on the Fixya repair page.

LG DLG2526W it just started to make a weird noise unitl it wouldnt spin anymore. unplugged it but still wont spin


The belt for the drum has a tensioner to keep the belt snug while running. The tensioner has a roller that incorporates a bearing to make it run smoothly. When the bearing goes bad the roller binds receiving a flat spot on it so when it turns it makes the belt snap very quickly making the belt to slap the drum everytime. It does make a lot of noise I know for I heard a lot of them with this problem. No since it does not turn the belt has finally broke so you need a tensioner roller and a belt which are sold together by most manufacturers

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This...


Greetings from GoVacuum,

If you have replaced the clutch already, then this can really only be one other problem, and that is the roller brush. If the roller brush's bearing have locked up, and the brush is no longer spinning, this is going to cause the clutch to make that horrible grinding noise, and a lot of people incorrectly think automatically that the clutch needs to be replaced.

Here's a very easy way that you can test the roller brush on your Dyson to see if it may have gone bad. In 10 years of fixing and selling vacuum cleaners, I have never seen such a cheap roller brush that's in the Dyson DC07 models with clutches, unfortunately this is notorious problem we see on this particular model.

Ok, so to test out the brush, make sure the vacuum is unplugged, and turn it upside down. Remove the 3 plastic screws on the bottom plate, and remove the bottom plate to expose the brush completely.

You may then simply pull upwards on the roller brush, and take the brush out of the belt that is wrapped around it. After the brush has been completely removed from the vacuum cleaner, hold the brush with only your pointer fingers in each hand, and only put your pointer fingers on the outside of the bearing caps on each side of the roller brush.

While holding only the bearing caps with your fingers, try to spin the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin freely in your fingers, and you should get a good 5 or 6 rotations with each spin.

If the brush doesn't spin, then your roller brush has gone bad. Espcecially with home that have long haired pets, or females, the hair gets between the bearing cap and the bearing inside and causes the plastic caps that are covering the bearings to heat up, ultimately causing the bearing caps to melt, and finally the bearings sieze, and the brush will no longer spin freely which is why the clutch makes that awful noise.

Good news is that the roller brush is not as expensive or as difficult to replace as the clutch was. You may purchase the DC07 roller brush here;
Genuine Dyson DC-07 Roller Brush for Models That Use a Clutch Part # 904174-01

If your roller brush does spin, then I'm baffled as to what could be causing the clutch to make noise, but I'd like to try and help you figure this out.

Please send me an email to chris.jones@govacuum.com, or just request a clarification request here on Fixya, and I'd be more then happy to try and diagnosis this Dyson further for you.

Thank you so much, I hope that this helps you.

Noise when dryer is spinning


The drum rides on some roller wheels to allow it to rotate and give it support. They have bearings in them that fail and begin to make noise. Replace the roller that is bad. You have to access the drum by removing the front of the machine, support the drum and find the noisy roller.

Whirlpool dryer drum making noise




window.google_render_ad();There are many places & parts that could be causing your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy. To find out what is causing the noises, you need to find out where are the noises coming from.
Start the dryer and let it run for a while and listen to try to pinpoint where in the dryer the noises is coming from. Once you have an idea of the area, you will need to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet and take the dryer apart.
Below you will find the parts that you need to check when your dryer is noisy.
The drum baffles:

The drum baffles are use to tumble the clothes inside of the drum, in other words, the baffles job is to separate the pieces of laundry as the drum turns.
When the dryer is getting older and if you use the dryer a lot, the drum baffles holding screws will become loose. Loose drum baffles will cause noises. All you need to do, is to open the top panel and tighten the drum baffles holding screws.
The drum support rollers:

These dryers uses four drum support rollers, tow on the front and two on the rear. The job of the drum support rollers is to keep the drum tumbling smooth.
When the grease on one of the rollers dry out, the roller start to make squeaking noises and the roller bearing will start to wear out until the bearing on the roller is gone. When the bearing on the roller is gone, the noise will change from squeaking to a clanking noise.
The blower wheel:

The blower wheel is use to circulate the air inside of the dryer drum. The most common Whirlpool blower noises are cause by something falling inside of the blower housing and hitting the blower when the motor runs.
The Idler pulley:

The Idler pulley is use to apply the necessary tension on the belt. There are two types of idler pulleys, the pulley with the wheel and the pulley with the teflon slide. A bad idler pulley could cause a Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
The drive motor:

Worn out bearings on the motor will cause the motor to run kind of noisy. When the motor starts making noises, the solution to this problem is to replace the motor.
The belt:

The belt on most dryers is only about1/4 inch wide. These belts work very hard making the drum tumble. When the belt stretch just 1/2 inch more that it supposed to, the belt will start slipping and that could cause your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
As you could see, there are a lot of parts that could become noisy in your dryer. When your dryer starts making noises, make sure to check it out before it gets worse.

Noisy drier


I had the same problem with my dryer. The large cloths drum rides on two wheel bearing rollers that are mounted behind the drum. If one of those bearings to the rollers wears out, it will make a loud racket. If you want to repair it your self, purchase a repair manual for your model dryer. Then Disessemble the front of the dryer to expose the large drum. Remove the belt that goes around the drum. Then remove the drum. You will then be able to see the two rollers that the drum rides on. Go to your nearest parts store and replace both of them. Good luck.

Vacuum Roller making a loud noise


Your roller brush is starting to fail. If you unscrew the ends, you will find a lot of hair wound around the stem. You probably have a warped plastic end the holds the bearing. This is my problem now.... I am looking for a new roller brush as I write this. I found one for $30. Good Luck.
