I beleive the start capacitor is faulty & it has dropped away from where it's supposed to mount inside,the capacitor is probably dangling down,hanging by it's wires & banging on the drum as it rotates.The start capasitor gives the motor it's first kick start to get goin & it's not working that's why you have to help by turning the drum.

My ED56 won't start unless you turn the drum by hand why?


If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Have f11 fault tried to reset and machine starts up, turns a few times, then gives a strange noise then f11 appears and pump starts draining, had f11 few years back and was fuse but remember at this time...


sounds like you've either got a stiff motor or gunk in the drum making it difficult for the motor to turn. When the fuse blows the drum won't turn at all but as yours is trying to turn then throwing the fault up it sounds like something is causing too much resistance

''thud'' sound when starting


Is the "thud" sound after start then put in gear or a "thud" just after starting. If "thud" after in gear, could be a CV joint wearing out

LG DLE2514w electric dryer has loud thud every turn


Hi,
Most model dryers are supported at thge rear of the drum with a bearing configuration, but usually the front of the drum is supported by some lining pads or guides. These help hold the rotation of the drum concentric. It sounds like your drum is not spinning concentric. My guess would be that some new guides might need to be installed.
Hope this helps...

WONT DRY,DRUM WONT TURN


This sounds like the motor that drive the drum has packed it in could be the capacitor or the centrifugal switch cant say with the amount of info given. I am quite sure it is with the motor as manually turning it is assisting with the start up of the motor

Check the battery connections and make sure contact surfaces are clean and hardware is tight.Unless the starter or starter relay is going bad on you, 9 of ten times this will get you going again.

Clicking Fridge


I used to have a whirlpool fridge, they are the ones who make kenmore too. It used to make a loud thud noise. It was the compressor turning off. sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night. It did this for years and I never had any problems with it. when I purchased a larger fridge I sold it to a friend and its still working today. If you can tolerate the noise I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts giving you trouble.
