Open Question

The motor on my Miele timble dryer has just started to make a slightly muffled noise. Wonder if it may be paper that got into the mechanism?

Blower fan has fluff on stuck to it. It may even be disstorted. If you are really unlucky then it's done the blower fan motor bearings as well.

SOURCE: Loud noise

Sounds as though it could be one of the motor shaft bearings is worn or wearing, or might be working its' way out of the end housing it was pressed into. The best way to verify it is the motor bearing is to remove the belt drive from the motor pully and operate the dryer while you listen for the sound, if still there, you've isolated the noise to the motor and can explore further to see what exactly is causing the problem.

If that isn't it, please provide the brand and model number so we can zero in on the probable issue.

The belt is most likely broken. The front drum bearing seal may have worn out and caused this to happen. Call Miele. You'll be better off.

My GE Profile DPSE810 Electic Dryer has started making a scraping noise when the drum rotates. What could be causing the scraping? It makes the noise even if I take out all the clothes and there is nothing...


Told by several GE Service Techs that the noise is normal metal expansion & nothing can be done. Anyone else have this issue?
First dryer in over 40 years we ever heard this type of noise.

Runs but does not spin


If it still makes noise, the motor is probably OK and only a belt has failed.
Removing any access panel will probably confirm this.

Look for shredded fragments of a belt and empty pullies.
This shouldn't be an expensive fix.
