Dryer making a grinding noise when turned on. How do you get the top off to check the barrel motor?


Clanging Sound
1. If the noise coming from your dryer can be described as a clanging sound, the solution is probably well within your grasp. This common sound is typically the result of loose debris accidentally put in with the load of laundry. Change may be left in pockets of pants or other objects may be dropped in the laundry basket by children --- perhaps a toy car. The objects may not be noticed when put into the wash, and the water in the washer may have dampened the sound. Simply remove these items, and restart the dryer to resolve the issue.
Sometimes the clanging is from snaps or buttons that are actually part of the clothing. If you are drying a jacket with metal snaps or another garment with metal attached, you should expect this clanging sound as they tumble and strike the inside of the dryer tub.
Humming or Whistling
2. Many Roper dryer models are equipped with a safety feature known as a lint signal, which is usually a light that often accompanies a warning signal, telling the machine owner that the lint trap has become clogged. When the dryer cannot pull adequate air through the lint filter, it can overheat and become a fire hazard. The warning alarm may sound like a hum or whistle to get your attention. Look at the lint signal light, clean out the trap and the noise should stop.
Thumping or Grinding
3. If the noise you are hearing can be described as a thumping sound or a metal grinding sound, the device that turns the dryer drum, known as the drum rollers or glides, can be worn out. As the drum turns, there may be a constant and rhythmic thump each time the drum rotates. A severely worn or broken roller could cause the metal of the drum to rub against the metal housing of the machine, causing a louder grinding noise. The rollers will need to be replaced to remedy the problem.
Squeaking or Squealing
4. Most dryers work by using belts to turn the rollers, which in turn make the drum rotate and tumble the clothes dry. When these belts get loose, a worn belt or a malfunctioning tensioner spring may keep the belt tight. In either case, belt slippage may occur and will produce a squeaking or squealing sound that is easily recognized. The problem is likely to be the tension on the belt since most belts will break before wearing out to this degree.

I have a Neptune electric dryer model MDE4000ayw. The clothes keep getting stuck around the barrel as the dryer is operating. What is the problem? It also makes a very loud noise as it operates.


You need to disconnect the dryer from power source, open the unit, it sound like the drum has holes on it that stucked your clothes when turning. this problem common to all maytag dryers. The front support glide had chop up . You might likely change the drum or tumbler.

My dryer is making loud screaching noises. Everytime I turn it on to dry clothes is makes very loud screaching noises.


Sounds like it needs what are called glides or felt. This is what keeps the metal drum from contacting the metal housing. If this is let go too long the drum can be ruined

The dryer makes a loud grinding clattering noice when its on. We just moved it across the country. It was working fine before we left. The one that was here is squeaking and can run for several cycles...


try opening the door and seeing if the drum has shifted and is rubbing on the frt panel somewhere,it may have just shifted off the drum glides or bearing seat/the other one sounds as if the element is open(bad)if the other one heats fine,if both take long periods to dry clothes,ckeck for 120/240 at the main house panel and again same at dryer outlet plug-in receptacle

Whirlpool Dryer not spinning.


Sounds like the motor is not getting to proper speed. As long as you check for things in the blower housing and bad idler and support bearings before buying a motor. It could be motor bearings or weak windings. Replacing the motor is not a simple task and involves removing the front and the blower. Make sure it is the motor as most places will not take returns for electrical components.

Clothes get stuck between dryer and barrel


If your clothes get stuck, marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

The air is not getting out of the dryer. Your vent hose is crimped or cloged or the flapper outside the house is stuck.. Air is not getting out of the dryer thru the vent for what ever reason.
