I have an Ariston Margherita (secondhand) washer/dryer, probably some 14 years old. It washes fine, but the dryer tries to work, but the drum no longer rotates. Is it worth trying to fix it, or shou


Given the age of the unit, I'd price newer ones, both at stores and secondhand on Craigslist, then go to Google Shopping or your local appliance-repair place and get a cost estimate for the drum belt and the motor. Whichever costs less, that's your best option. (It'll probably be a secondhand-but-still-newish one on Craigslist, as Ariston parts are getting really pricy nowadays.)

Very noisy, getting extremely hot on top--will burn skin


If it is able to burn skin DO NOT use it!!! It can easily start a fire.
With the added noise symptom, i am guessing something broke loose and is either rubbing or conducting electricity. Either way, it should be opened up and serviced.

Asko t701 dryer makes exsessive noise and drum rotates slowly


Mine was very noisy. Then I found the impeller clogged with lint. I cleaned it and now the noise is gone.

Remove the lower panel (2 Torx T20 screws).
Remove the impeller cover (1 Torx T10 screw and 4 snaps).
Clean impeller.
Reinstall covers. Don't overtighten screws.

DRYER IS MAKING A CONSISTENT BANGING NOISE WHEN RUNNING. DRUM IS TURNING AND DRYER DOES DRY OK.


Hi,

There are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations when worn out. Many times a dryer will squeak just a little bit as it first starts. This should go away in just a few seconds. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks. The blower wheel is always moving and lint is constantly going by it. If it’s noisy, it may have gotten clogged with lint, or it may be worn and need to be replaced. Clean out the area around the blower. If it’s still noisy, replace it.
Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out. Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If the glides are worn, replace them as a set.
Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.
The gas valve solenoid will make a buzz type of sound as it opens. The valve itself will give a little click as it starts the heat cycle, when ignition begins, and when the burner is turning off. The burner flame itself makes kind of a low-pitched roaring wind sound.

Thanks for using Fixya.
