Hello! Thanks for being here!!! When I turn the dryer on, it rotates, but makes a weird noise. When I open the door, it stops, but it sounds like there is another barrel around the barrel I can see that doesn't stop.

I need more info about the dryer. Does you dryer make any noise when the start button is pressed, if you can hear the motor turning then more than likely your belt is either after slipping off the drum or breaking. you should be able to access the belt either by the back of the macine or the top to see if the belt is broke or just after slipping. Another problem it could be is that the capacitor in your dryer could have blown. To test this you press start, open the door of the machine, spin the drum by hand and close the door before the drum comes to a stop, if the drum continues to rotate after you close the door then you know it is the capacitor that is blown, this needs to be replaced either by an electrician or a specialist as it is possibe to connect the capacitor wrong and the result would be the capacitor exploding damaging your hand. Always plug out the machine before opening the top or back of the machine....
When your bosh dryer stops working and the lint light filter turns on ,close door and start again.This time push door and hold so that the door is closed more tightly.This time dryer should work. To fix this ,remove the door then remove hinge bracket .Under the bottom part of the bracket insert plumbing ruber gasket.This will adjust the dryer door,it should close more tightly. Lint light should not turn on again and dryer should work fine.
Please let me know is this works for you. Since the adjustments of my dryer door, I have not had any problems. If you have any questions, just ask.
P.S- I know it may sound weird to do this, but since I had adjusted the door this way, the dryer does not turn off during drying sessions.
if you can open the door,grab the inner basket at 9 and 3 o'clock and see if you can move it sideways,then again at 6 and 12 o'clock and move it up and down,if you can do this,then the drum spider trunnion is broken in behind the tub and the tub is loose which will require a new tub and trunnion as they are not sold separately at about $400.00
Loud noises coming from a Washing Machines are most often caused by looseobjects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The Washing Machines beltallows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditionsmay cause the belt to dry out, eventually Washing Machines cracking and thensnapping. This will cause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix thedryer belt of a Washing Machines to get rid of loud noises.
Instructions And Things You'll Needed to solve the problem.
Screwdriver ,Replacement Washing Machines belt
1 Stop the Washing Machines and look inside the dryer's drum for any looseobjects such as coins, pens or anything else that may have been in a pocket ofclothing. Remove the object and restart the dyer to determine if the noise hasstopped. 2 Unplug the Washing Machines from the wall outlet to disconnect all power tothe unit.
3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment on the top of the dryer.
4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel in place. Pull the panel off toaccess the dryer belt. 5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum to remove the belt. Check theWashing Machines belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split or broken will causeloud noises.
6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it out to remove it. Take noteon how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel away from the Washing Machines andslip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of the old belt and slipthe new belt following the old belt's position ensuring the grooved side of thebelt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor to allow you to slipand loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Washing Machines and screw it in place.
9 Open the Washing Machines door and use your hand to rotate the drumcounterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the Washing Machines into the wall unit and begin use .
richy wilson, the motor may be burned out. I think that the lid/door switch isnt the problem. If it is faulty, the dryer shouldnt do anything at all when started. The first thing I would do would be to gain access into the dryer by removing the top panel and then the front panel. Check to see if the belt is still in one piece or severely worn. You will probably need to test the motor. You can do this several ways; 1. remove the belt if it is in good shape. 2. check for obstructions in the blower fan housing (usually in the lower left corner. looks like a circle with fan blades throughout) 3.manually rotate the shaft of the motor, if it is stiff then you'll probably have to replace it. 4. if the motor rotates freely, try to run it momentarily with the belt removed. if it does rotate fine, then there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the drum itself. the idler pulley is usually a little wheel that holds the tension of the belt onto the drum. 5. try to rotate the drum by hand. if it is difficult to move, try to correct any problems with the rollers or idler pulley. 6. If motor hums but doesnt rotate on its own, even with the belt removed, yet you can turn it freely by hand, you usually will need to replace the MOTOR, or MOTOR START CAPACITOR.
If you have any further question, feel free to email me. If you do, try to include the model number of the dryer.
I have a Kenmore Stacked Washer/Dryer (Model 417.91702000) that has had the same thing happen. I have replace mine twice . . .It is the rear dryer bearing.
You can purchase a kit that contains everything to replace it.
You have to work from the front, all the way to the back.
Make sure that you also check the felt pad glide on the front door panel (the drum rotates on this). You may need to replace it also, it should have teflon pads built into the felt that the drum rests on . . .
This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.
