Why does my gas dryer make a loud vibration noise?

Hey friend, I appreciate your post!

I understand that your Electrolux gas dryer is making a loud vibration noise and is also loud while tumbling. There are several components in your dryer that could be causing this noise. Based off what you are describing it might be an issue with your suspension rollers, motor, or pulley. Since it could be any of these underlying issues I would suggest getting a technician out to diagnosis and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful. - Matt

Screeching noise

Your car needs alignment. The screaming noise comes from tires being dragged over aspnalt. This wears tires very fast.

My maytag dryer is screaming at me!!

It could be the band slipping, depending on how handy you are, you can take out the back cover and check it out while it runs. I am assuming this is an electric dryer, so taking the back cover is not so difficult, just need to figure out what type of screws it has, find the corresponding tool and take it out (make sure power is unplugged while you do this) plug it back it and let it run, you can find where the noise is coming from. If you cannot figure it out, put everything back on and then it is best to call a technician.

My dryer

I have a WTL5400 screaming at me, so my Husband has taken the side and back panels off to investigate,and the noise was made by the air outlet plastic fan which spins when the tumble dryer is turning, this plastic fan thing was wibbly wobbly and the nut wouldn't tighten up. He has put in a couple of different size washers and tighten up the nut and hey presto no noise.
