This is usually the front drum bearings that are mounted to the front panel. Raise the cabinet top to check. Hope this helps!

Magic chef dryer making very loud noise as it turns, how to get the bottom off


No need to take the bottom off - the top, front, and back come off - if the noise is a rather high pitched squeak the pads on the drum are worn out, if it sounds like a squeak but more metallic/raspy sound check the motor bearings, also check the drive belt.

Loud noise when the dryer turns on


Well, sir, it is metal on metal, and you did well to stop it. Someone will be needing to take the whole thing apart and find the problem. It may be easy because the metal should show where it was rubbing because it will be shiny bright.
Be blessed.

My dryer is making loud screaching noises. Everytime I turn it on to dry clothes is makes very loud screaching noises.


Sounds like it needs what are called glides or felt. This is what keeps the metal drum from contacting the metal housing. If this is let go too long the drum can be ruined

Kenmore Dryer 110 is making a loud squeaking noise.


Only a few things will make that noise. The squeaking is caused by a moving part having trouble turning while rubbing against a fixed part.
  1. The idler pulley is worn
  2. The drum support rollers are hard turning on their shafts
  3. The felt seals at the front or back of the drum is worn allowing metal to metal contact while turning
  4. An article has fallen into the housing around the blower wheel and the wheel is rubbing on it.
Listen for the frequency of the sound. The drum rollers and drum felts will squeak at the frequency of the tub turning. The idler pulley turns much faster as does the blower wheel. Knowing this will help pin down the cause.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise then quits working.


Sounds like the motor's done. That thing is probably the start-run switch. Not worth trying to fix on an old motor. I've found dryer motors to be fairly generic, you should be able to find a replacement. I use Repairclinic.com when I can't get parts locally.

Loud noise when dryer is running.


My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.
