You probably have worn front bearing slides, 316 and 313 in the diagram. You may also have a worn rear bearing 3106 in diagram. Slide putting knife between front panel and top near edges to release clips to gain acess to internals.

Ge gas dryer making loud noise


what kind of loud noise ? is it a sqeaking/squealing noise ?

1 Answer

Loud rumbling noise with slight vibration


Normally the noise you hear is caused by the drum rollers having flat spots on them or needing lubricant.
If this is what is wrong It will make a kind of thumping noise.
When they need lubricant they will normally make a squealing noise also. You would lube the shaft and bearing area of the roller, using a good machine oil...something like "3 in One" oil.

The dryer makes a loud squealing noise when running most of the time. Think it is a belt or bearing but cannot figure how to get inside. Top has 2 screws that cannot be reached with standard straignt screw...


Normally you would remove the front of the dryer, then it makes for easy acess of the drum and rollers..
The noise is probably your rollers, either needs lube or replacement

Maytag gas dryer squealing


Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.

Loud squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

THE DRYER STARTED MAKING A SQUEALING NOISE AND THEN IT STOPPED AND WOULD START AGAIN AND SOMETIMES IT WOULDN'T MAKE A NOISE BUT NOW IT'S SO LOUD THAT YOU CAN'T STAND TO HAVE IT ON.


you may have to take it apart and check two things...
1. the motor on dryers can get pluged with dust and lint and dry out. the motor bearings may simply be dry. it might be too late for the motor, but you could try lubing the motor bearings and at least stop the squeal for a while.
2. remove the drum and lubricate the wheels or bearings that the drum rides on.
lubricate all rollers and belt guides as well.
hope this helps..........jay

Maytag atlantis dryer squeals very loudly when running


you have answered your own question! The belt will have become loose due to age/stretching. You hear cars making the same squealing noise when thgey rev up. Its a real squeal/screech. It may possibly be the drum rubbing on the chassis due to beariing failure, but doubtful.
So on some machines the motor is on adjustable brackets that let you move the motor away from the drum pully by loosening the bolts/nuts and then re-tighten. Don't leaver the motor down and then lock off the nut/bolt as this will make the belt too tight, and cause the belt to fail or the bearing to fail over time Take the back cover off the machine and all will be revealed.
best of luck it's a simple fix if your diagnosis is correct
