Question about Estate TEDS840JQ Electric Dryer
You have two problems with your Dryer...
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
#1 Problem...A blocked vent will not allow the articles being dried to dry properly and cause them to wrinkle.
Check to make sure your vent hose is clean of lint and also that the machine is also clean of lint to prevent the heating coil from going faulty.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical consol with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
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.
