Dryer makes grinding noise after a few seconds of spinning. Doesn't happen at start, and burning smell is coming out. Help?


Not sure what brand dryer you are talking about but it sounds like it could be your drum bearings in the back of the drum or it could be the plastic bearings in the front of the drum or it could be the rollers or at least one of them may be bad.

All the clothes in my dryer dry at a normal time, but the smell burnt! After a dry cycle, the inside of the dryer smells like something is melting, but everything seems to be working correctly. We have had...


Remove the vent duct at the back and clean out all of the lint. Next, find the air inlet to the heater elements and make sure there is no lint accumulated there. Inspect the back of the drum (inside) for any plastic debris (something left in a pocket?) that might have melted and stuck on there. Last resort: remove the dryer cabinet and drum, and inspect the heater and its wiring. If the insulation on the wires appears burned or is broken off, cut off the damaged part of the wiring and replace its terminals, then polish the heater terminals before reattaching the wires (a tarnished connection will cause the wire to overheat). Clean out the heater if necessary, but be careful not to stress the heater element. Used heater wire is brittle and cracks or breaks easily.

My dryer stop working, it made a big noise and is not spining anymore, ts sounds as if it is out of place or something, and after 3 minutes it starts smelling like burn My dryer is a Maytag...


TRY SPINNING THE DRUM BY HAND. IF IT SPINS EASY, YOU HAVE A BELT BROKEN.
MOST LIKELY THE BANG WAS WHEN THE BELT BROKE. YOU NEED TO PULL THE DRYER OUT, OPEN IT UP AND REPLACE THE BELT. A SERVICE APPLIANCE REPAIR WILL NEED TO BE CALLED. - - SORRY

MY DRYER VIBRATES VERY BADLY, THE CLOTHES STILL SPIN BUT THE WHOLE UNIT MOVES ALOT AND AFTER A FEW MINUTS IT STARTS TO SMELL LIKE SOMETHING IS BURNING.


This sounds like the rubbing strips at the front of the dryer are badly worn and/or the rear bearing is worn. From your description - the drum is sticking - causing the motor to slip on the belt - causing the burning smell.
Replace worn parts including the drive belt.

My maytag dryer is making a very loud noise near the area where the belts are, the belts seem to be working and the drum is turing, however after a while there is a burning smell.


Is the burning smell like plastic? If so read on. The belt runs on a spring steel plat tensioner with platic wheels of course. Plastic is on everything these days, huh? Well anyways the wheels the belt rides against has bushings inside them to make them last a long time which they do. It seems the plastic wheel will melt down in some spots and when rotating it makes the drum of the clothes dryer make a rumbling sound. I know you did not mention that problem although if the wheels keep on melting down the smell will subside but the noise will get loader as time goes on.

Dryer stoped running


Your drive belt may have broken if it smelled like rubber burning. If that is the case then your motor bearing are worn out or something has been lodged between your dryer drum and the dryer housing. If the smell was the odor of burning plastic, then your motor is probably burned up.
