Dryer making a loud noise


the problem is either going to be the drum bearing or the front upper and lower felt and glides.I'll list a walk-through for you if your interested .
1)The first thing you need to do is unplug the dryer.
2) You will need to pop the top of the dryer. This can be done with a flat screwdriver. Place the driver between the top and the front of the dryer and basically just pry upwards.
3)Now, that you can see inside the dryer, the next thing is to remove the front of the machine. At the upper left and right sides you will find a screw that holds the front to the frame of the dryer.Remove these screws and you can take the front off.
4) The glides and felt are located on the inside of the front piece you just removed.The drum actually rest on these and if damaged will produce a metal on metal dragging sound. If these parts are good, continue to step 5)You now have access to the belt and idler pulley, which is good because the belt needs to taken loose .
6) WIth the belt off spin the drum and listen for the sound that has been bothering you, if any sound other than a smooth sound is emitted when turning the drum your rear bearing is out.
7)You can remove the drum by lifting the back end up and pulling it out. Once you have it out the bearing will be exposed and the rest is just swapping out the old bearing and putting it back together.

I have a GE profile Dryer DPSE810GOT and the dryer sounds like its running on metal to metal is the felt around the drum one piece or two and counld that cause it


The felt is two pieces. And, no, the problem is the drum support glides have worn through, allowing the drum to continue to wear into the front drum bearing. Replace the front drum bearing (WE3M26) and the drum slides (WE1M481) located at the top front of the drum.

My dryer is making a loud grating sound like metal on metal,its at the front of the dryer,is it the felt round the drum i think it has come out??


sounds like a seal, it must be replaced, in some instances if you hear a grinding noise the drum and the bulkhead must be replaced if this is an older dryer and there is no warranty you might have to pay alot for a new drum and bulkhead not to mention the labor. most new drums come with the felt seal,

Dryer sounds like there is change on the outside


i had the same problem last week on my dryer, turns out that the felt on the drum where its attached to the housing has worn off, my dryer is so old. i did do careful inspection, by sticking my head in the drum and turning it by hand and looking into the seam. it does sound like there was a coin in there, but it was just metal to metal scrapping. im off to my buddys used appliance store to look for a felt seal.plz rate-bozcro

Loud rattling noise, but dries ok


The drum of a dryer is supported b the front and back of the unit, spins on a felt gasket. Noise is coming from rollers or their is something stuck between drum and the felts. The pulley is a piece of springy metal with a plastic wheel on it, could also be worn. If you take off front of dryer, drum will come loose, check to see if something is stuck. Common for loose change to get jambed in felts. Also spin rollers and pulley to see if need to be replaced. I still think something is caught in felt.

Whirlpool duet dryer felt seal replacement


The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
