Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Our heavy duty Inglis dryer (maybe 4 or 5 years old) is making a loud noise. The drum still turns. The heat still comes on and the clothes will dry. But the noise......Any ideas?

My dryer is an Inglis, heavy duty 6 cycle, 4 temp, autocycle that is about 7 years old. Recently it just heats up but does not dry the clothes. They are steamy hot but wet. I checked the vent, it is not...


It sounds like the blower is not forcing air through the dryer. I would start by turning the dryer on and checking the vent exhaust to see if there is a good healthy air flow where it vents to the outside. If there is not good air flow, start back tracking the air flow for obstructions or other problems. Check the lint filter to be clean, check the air piping to be clear, check the blower to be clear and functioning.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Dryer thumps when running, clothes get stuck...


It always helps if you list the brand and model number in your post. I would look at the seam on the drum to see if the weld has cracked. (right at the front and / or rear of the seam.)

Dryer drum catching clothes in gap


most driers are now smaller in overall size and have ratings as to their capacity
many are more energy efficient , drying quicker than the older models
check the spares availability at an authorized repair agent spares for a new drum as fixing it would be the last option

Have to dry close twice on automatic, or once on timed. Random triple beeps.


Sounds like the drum belt has broken. It's connected around the drum and motor pulley. Without the belt turning the drum it will be near to impossible to dry the clothes, Hope this helps, Sea Breeze
