The drum is belt driven, there is a belt tensioner on it too. You need to replace the belt.

What do we do to address thumping noise in Kenmore Elite HE4 Dryer?


It is probably one of the idler wheels it rotates on. Look for a flat spot and if you didn't replace the drum your self ask for your money back.

Dryer turns on but drum will not spin


Sounds like the belt is bad or the motor needs to be replaced. Unplug unit. When you open it up get a block of wood (a piece of 2x4 works) if your units are stacked on top of each other, pull the dryer towards you approx 2inches. You are going to push on the top of the dryer and insert the board underneath the dryer. The reason you pulled the dryer forward was to keep the dryer from slipping backwards while working on it. Now check the two bottom corners on the front of they dryer.occasionally there are screws holding the kick plate. Take these off, pull out and down and look for broken belts. Be sure to vacuum any loose lint while you have the unit open. Good luck.

My Kenmore Elite dryer has begun to squeal VERY loudly when started as of last night! I stopped using it. We have owned it from brand new for four years. Any ideas? My husband is very handy. Thank...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
Check the belt condition for wear also.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Replacing dryer drum Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer


Usually from the front. Lift top and remove front. I can't image it would be worth replacing the drum. What is wrong with the drum? or do you mean the belt to drive the drum.

Trying to replace motor need to know if drum has to come out.


yes it will,the belt needs to come off the drum to replace the motor anyway and this will make replacing the motor much easier,besides that then you can give the entire lower area a complete cleaning of lint,if your going to put that much money into a dryer then you might just as well replace the drum belt and drum glides while its apart
