It is difficult to assess without a visual check. Based on your description there is circulation pump (not drain pump) which can produce strong sounds when is defective or clogged and the like. So it should be open and visually check if is correct one.

My phone is on "vibrate." How do I get it to ring.


Try pressing and holding the volume UP button while the phone is idle (not in a call). Most phones will switch from completely silent, to vibrate, to low volume and gradually increase to full volume as long as your are pressing the volume UP button. Also, make sure your phone's "Airplane" mode is OFF.

Extreme rumbling,vibration have it apart whats the best way to tell if the drum is out of round or the rollers are shot have cleaned vent and motor. motor runs smoothly on its own


You rotate the drum rollers looking for an eliptical outer surface rubber of the rollers. Also make sure the rollers do not teeter fore and aft on the roller shaft.
Next grab the idler pulley for the belt and see if there is any play in the ldler.
Worn drum felts / gaskets or a front bearing glide can also contribute to the problem

See this link for parts:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=47834&diagram_id=28471897#d28471897

Item numbers you need to check are
6, (unusual wear)
14, drum gaskets {2 ea front and rear} (torn, worn or folded)
18. Just replace the belt if your into it this deep..... especially if the dryer is +5 years old
23, (roller Shaft for wear)
24, roller for wear center and outside surfaces
30. Drum glides (Kit)

A rumble is usually associated with a bad fan blade...as in the center of the fan blade hub is cracked or broken. Check the fan for play.. also hold the motor drive pulley and see if the fan rotates on the motor shaft. It should NOT rotate without turning the drive pulley
A squeal is associated with the belt or idler pulley
A thump is a drum/felt/roller/glide problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a vibration that gets worse as speed increases. ive had the tires balanced


Hi:
If your tires are good, the next likely suspect are the universal joints on your drive shaft. They tend to cause rumbles and vibration that varies with speed.

Loud rumble sound, Vent hose vibration


That model of neptune dryer had a problem with the blower housings cracking. When the housing cracks, it binds forward into the blower wheel making a loud "rumble" noise and vibration. If you open the door and manually turn the drum and you hear a rubbing noise and feel alot of resistance, then you have a cracked blower housing and need to replace it. It is not an easy job to replace, so if your not familiar with dryers, you should have a technician replace it. Let me know if you have any further questions. shane

Dryer makes rumbling sound when starting


If you remove the front cover and access the blower fan and see if it is still tight on the shaft. if it isn't it makes a rumble sound when started due to vibrating and after a while it makes more noise as it goes. Now I removed the fan and placed a shim in the flat area and matched the flat area of the shaft and replace it back on the shaft and it should solve it.
