Drum turns but sounds like a small metal object, possibly a screw, banging around inside . Continued to use and now sound is much louder and sounds like a bigger object.


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



The pulleys or rollers. Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density gear grease to re oil/grease them.



The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The belt loose or worn can make funny noises



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

Bosch Classixx 1400 Express - Drum not rotating.


Sounds like teh belt has either broken and come of of drum, or is simply lose. take the back off mchine; if broken buy a new one; if lose loosen motor bolts, press teh motor down until belt is taught and retighten. Check first to see if their is soap on the belt/pully/drum/motor carrying the belt as this could be causing it to slip

Water fills in drum but does not spin or move


You will have to open your Washing Machine to view the Drum Motor and Drum assembly. It sounds like your belt has broke or is worn out, or your Drum Motor is not turning. If the Drum Motor is not turning, you may have a bad Drum Motor or Motor Control Board. A trained professional should be contacted to perform these repairs if you are unsure about the repair process.

Dryer was moved to install new flooring and upon returning to original location is making very loud noise when drying. Sounds like the drum rumbling. It appears to be level.


The drum could have gotten out of position. Try turning the drum by hand listening for where the noise is coming from and also try repositioning it by pulling and pushing while turning by hand.

Frigidaire sensor gas dryer will not turn on, power supply and breakers ok, Makes a noise like it wants to turn on. Drum is free and moveable.


if you can move the drum by hand and it's humming it sounds like you have a bad motor or the belt broke and is jamming the motor and that's why the drum moves,you have to get in there and check it out,open the door and the model number should be there,next time send model number

Drum is stuck and does not move after a noiny spin. pls advice.thanks


Sounds like possibly the main drum bearings have seized.
To check, remove the rear panel of washer, remove the drum belt, and try to turn the drum by hand, if it is noisy or rumbling, or not turning at all, then likely the the drum bearings have seized.
This is a major repair, and could be expensive!!!

Frigidare ftw 647ghso thumping sound in one spot when i manually rotate drum sounds like its rubbing on something


Suspect a bad drum bearing or bent drum bearing shaft. When you rotate the drum, look for movement of the drum up or down while turning. If the drum moves suddenly, suspect the drum bearing. If it slowly moves up or down during turning, suspect a bent shaft on the drum. In either case, it is a major teardown to remove the drum from the outer drum case. If still under warranty, take advantage! Hope this helps!
