My dryer started making a loud noice that sounds like a lawnmower. I took the bottom panel off and the noise seems to be coming from the motor. Is there anything that can be done to fix this or do i need a new one?

If the noise is coming from the motor best to replace the motor before you get any more problems such as motor not working or burning out the drive belt actually when u do replace the motor this is also a perfect tiime to replace the belt on your unit it will guarantee you many more years of usage and if you order the kit to replace the belt,roller and pulley it is much cheaper then buying each one seperately. Hope this has helped please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation
Thanks

P.S. Also always remember to dlint your dryer yearly adds to the life of the dryer. when ordering belt kit from place like marcone or all brands appliance specify that you want the kit not the seperate pieces saves you about 25-30 bucks that way

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
