The noise coming from the front is from the drums seal that meshes to the front panel. Either it has a fold in it or it has simply worn out in some spots

The back of dryer drum rubs on the gas diffuser lip


You did get the right replacement bearing assembly; did you also replace the bearing retainer and ground strap to the gas diffuser?
I'm sure you followed the repair procedures as described in this video http://youtu.be/MPXu-Ya8CBY
And if you did double check everything I suggested- then the next thing I would have to ask, is the noise you are hearing only happening when the dryer is full of clothes or does it also occur when the drum is empty?
If the noise occurs only when the dryer has clothes in it, you may be overloading the dryer.
If the dryer is making the noise whether the drum is loaded or unloaded, then the next logical step is to check for level.
Place a carpenter's level on top of the dryer; check it side to side; and front to back; adjust the leveling legs if necessary.
From my experience, a scraping sound could be caused by metal or hard plastic objects getting caught between the cabinet and front seal of the drum. And you already had it apart to replace the front bearing and slides; and I'm sure you inspected the diffuser for any damage or being out of round when you installed the rear bearing...at this point, predicated you did replace the bearing retainer and ground strap- the only 3 things you didn't replace is the gas diffuser, the drum, and diffuser- not to suggest that you do :) Please keep me posted. Best regards.

I have a creda tvr2 tumble dryer. The fan belt has snapped but i I have purchased a new one. I want to know the easiest way to replace it. Cheers


Not totally clear on the particular model, but generally the belt is the same on most dryers.
Definitely do not mess with that thing in the middle there, that is the pivot point for the drum, and the place where the delicate heating elements usually are.

The belt will go all the way around the drum (tumbler); around the motor pully there you see in the opening there, and then arround another pully that is spring loaded to keep the tention on the belt.

It will probably take a tool to pry the spring loaded pully back so you can get the belt on.
Usually too, the machine pops apart with some force if you pry between the seams on the front, either the top pops up, or the front pops forward, then screws inside lead to the rest of the way.

Over all, the front casing will have to move forward so you can get the belt arround the drum, then move back to keep everything from falling in every direction. Once the belt is around the drum, it's just a matter of weaving it around the other two pullies.
It is not an easy task.

Drum squeaks, squeals, have taken it apart. belt still has print and is not worn.unbelievably loud. how to get rid of 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.
Once you have taken the dryer apart and you will now remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
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.

My Maytag Dryer Model #LDE5004ACW is noisy when drying. The dryer is still working but it sounds like the thing is ready to blow up. What could be wrong?


Generally it means the FELT seal on the front is wearing out and/or the rear wheels holding the drum up are wearing out. They are very cheap to buy and about a 1 hour job to take the back of the dryer off and replace them. I would recommend you buy and new belt also and replace it too while you have it apart. With a new belt, wheels, and felt seal, your pretty much making a new machine with the exception of replacing the heating element. I would not replace that right now. If it goes out later, it is easy to get to and replace and is resonably cheap too... On a scale of 1-10, to do this your mechanical ability should be about a 5 or 6, 10 being a Rocket Scientist... Go for it, be patient, take a couple pictures of it as you take it apart so you can see how it goes BACK together in reverse. Don't get in a hurry, drink your coffee, answer the phone and it should be done in about a hour and half or so. 3dd9331.gif

Grinding noise from under tumbler


One of the retaining rings on the motor clamp/drum bearing assembly had probably broken, the machine must be taken apart to access to the motor/bearing assembly and fix the part.
The job should be done by a technician.

Using the machine in this condition can cause more damage to motor/ drum bearings.

Here is the diagram.

here you can buy the parts.

Open dryer door, and reach up to the top of drum and push on it very gently. If it moves more than 1/4 inch or more, the dryer guides needs to be replaced. Sadly the guides are for front and rear so that means the drum has to be removed and the guides in the rear has to be changed first.

It will involve some time so be very careful! Another thing is to check for the dryer idler arm pully. if this pully is squealing/worn out, it will also need to be replaced at the same time you replace the guides.

My suggestion is to call your contractor and make them come out to see if they damaged it. Your local appliance repair store can also sometimes help.
