My dryer was making a loud squeeking noise while drying, now it won't start, I can hear it trying purring but than it does not start, help!


if you can hear the motor running,and if this unit does not have a belt shut off switch,the motor will run even if the belt is broken,the squeaking noise earlier was probably the belt starting to slip on the drum,replace the belt and drum glides when repairing,they are relatively inexpensive and as long as its torn down replace these too

Dryer is making a loud rattling sound when it is turned on


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication. If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear. 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. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Loud squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Loud Rattling Noise While Running


That's the blower fan blade loose on the motor shaft making the noise. Once you replace that the noise should clear up. You don't provide the make and model so I can't give you a part number, but you can Google search for "replacement fan" for your specific model. Sears' parts site (www.searspartsdirect.com) is a good place to start. Enter your model number and they have exploded views and parts information for most models. Then you can use the information to shop around. There are many online vendors for appliance parts.

There are also several websites showing the steps for getting into the dryer to replace the part. Replacing the fan blade is not a difficult job to do yourself if you are comfortable with a screwdriver and have a little mechanical aptitude. Otherwise an appliance technician could repair this for probably an hour labor charge plus parts ad trip fee. Certainly less than a new dryer would cost.

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.
