Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

The top drawer of my F&P dishwasher is making a loud noise. The best way to describe it is a loud groan. On the eco full plate setting it happens around 41-43 minutes and on the pan setting around...


The groan is coming from the pump module either bearing is faulty or the blades are touching the body of the pump housing. It would help to know which model you have. The sound must be coming when the drain cycle is started.

Starting the dishwashing cycle, extreme loud noise when dishwasher starts pumping water. Loud noise stays during pumping cycle. Dishes are clean and dry and no water in tub when cycle finishes.


If your unit is a Kenmore or Whirlpool (there are several other brands that use many of the same parts) and is less than 6 years old then it may pay to first check and clean out the chopper assembly for hard debris. If that doesn't do it then you may want to consider replacing the motor and circulation pump as a complete unit for between $160 and $200. Not too difficult a task for a moderately handy guy with some tools. Maybe 2 hrs. The bearing itself is not serviceable I understand, and would be considerably more difficult. Over six years old then you can buy a great quality machine for about $500.

Our 4000 series dishwasher is making a loud strange noise while washing. It sounds like the pump. Any suggestions?


it sounds like the rear drum bearing is out,if all else works o.k. and its sounds like a jet when running its probably the lip-seal is out and the bearing is bad,remove the rear access panel and if its discolored then the seal is bad and water got into the bearing and you need to replace both

Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher


have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

Jenn air dishwasher- making loud noise in operating cycle


Hi I am Vortash by the sound of what you are descibing your pump bearings seem to be shot , although it is making this sound is it still washing properly if so it confirms it is the bearing and not the impeller catching and making the noise the pump gets to quite a high pressure to wash the dishes .. sort of an enclosed hot jet wash the force of which drives the spray arms .. so I am afraid it looks like you will soon need a replacement pump.. sorry to bare bad news .. Regards Vortash
