Fisher and Paykel Dryer ED56 Noise

Hi was wondering if someone can help me, my dryer is making a rattling noise. I have taken the back off and if enough tension is put on the belt its possible to make the noise go away. It sounds like its coming from inside the drum but I'm reluctant to start taking it to bits without some idea of what I might find inside.. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. Thanks Callum

Your rear bearubg is mnost likely failed. and the back plaer is now hitting against the drum.
Part number (Fisher & Paykel Dryer Rear Drum Bearing Kit Part 479317)
you can replace this eazily by yourself.
check that the belt is over both rollers as well.. sometimes they slip off one of them.. especailly if moved around.
but this rear bearing is very bad. If you can find a skateboard bearing. it will fit nicely too. a much cheaper replacement and works fine. must get a good quility one lol (but any flate bearing is fine if you can find some in your workshop or neighbours lol

Dryer works but makes a rattling noise

check the pully wheels, the belt tensioner, and the drum housing as sometimes things can get caught in between drum and housing make the weirdest noises

Dryer rattle

I guess you have stumbled upon the resolution yourself.
The Tub ratlling could be because of three things.
1. The Belt itself , as it might have slacked after use. and needs replacement
2. The tumbler bearing, that would require you to open the tub
3. The holding bolts that connect both the inside and outside tubs of the dryer.

and do check the floor balance of the dryer.if the surface is not even the dryer can tumble and make noise.

Maytag neptune dryer belt off and loose

If belt is not broken, then the tensioner is not routed properly. Generally belt comes around drum, then around tensioner pulley then on motor pulley. Tensioner is spring loaded, so you need to pull up on tensioner to get belt around motor. Good luck.

It's like a rattling loud noise that comes out from the camshaft sprockets and timing belt on my 1998 dodge caravan 2.4 engine. it started while running on the road.

Could be the timing belt tensioner. They are known to make a rattling noise when worn and/or the belt has stretched....When is the last time you had the belt serviced? They should be replaced and pulleys inspected at 100,000 miles. Gates recommends 120,000 miles on their belts. Good luck, i hope this helps.
