When it reverses, why is there a loud squak/thud noise?

Loud


If the dryer is not sitting in all four corners and rocking back and forth, try adjusting the leveling feet to make it stable. Another cause of noise are worn idler wheels that have either buildup, or wear that makes a thumping noise. They would need to be replaced.

Gas Dryer makes a rumbling noise, and vibrates when running.


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
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 replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also 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 they will make a thumping type of noise or if there is too much 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 3inOne oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Dryer makes squealing noise when running. What's wrong?


the idler or tensioner wheel that your belt rides on has a bearing in the center of it. This bearing is going out causing the high pitched squeal your hearing

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes.


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

It taking too long to dry. I checked for blockage in the exhaust and lint and everything was ok.


Pop open the peep hole at the front bottom and watch the igniter glow until it ignites the gas. Are the burner flames a strong blue flame? Watch it for a little while. Does it stay lit for a few secs and shut down and then try to cycle back on? By the way, how old is this dryer?

Makes a squak noise


You need to replace the dryer belt.

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Screwdriver
  • Amana dryer belt
  1. Step 1 Disconnect the power source from the dryer. You can unplug from the wall outlet, remove the fuse from the fuse box or flip the breaker in the panel box.
  2. Step 2 Pull off the front panel of the dryer. Remove the screw in each corner at the bottom of the dryer's front panel. Lift up the front panel until the two clips at the top disengage. Remove the two screws that are found beneath it at the corners to remove the cabinet top.
  3. Step 3 Remove the belt by releasing the tension applied by the movable idler pulley wheel. The belt loops over the drum, under the idler pulley wheel and then around the motor's drive pulley.
  4. Step 4 Discard the used belt. It is fine to just throw it in the trash.
  5. Step 5 Install the new belt by pushing in on the idler pulley arm. Make sure the new belt is placed flat along the exterior of the drum.
  6. Step 6 Replace the screws back into the dryer's front panel. Screw them in tightly so that the panel will not fall off or jiggle loose.
  7. Step 7 Reconnect the power source back to your dryer. Either plug it back in or flip the switch in the breaker box.

Maytag gas Dryer is Noisy


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.
