Check for loose 'tumblers' inside the drum. I have heard of some cases of these coming loose and causing knocking in the drum.

Comercial maytag dryer will not shut off. tried replacing timer. heats up but will not shut offf


Hello,

When a dryer heats but the timer does not advance especially on the auto. dry setting (not timed dry) the problem is usually always a airflow problem. What needs to be checked is for lint build up in the blower housing, a blocked or restricted. Also on Maytag dryers a problem sometimes is that the blower wheel drive hub where it connects to the motor is stripped so the blower wheel cant move air,typically if that is the case a rumbling will be heard when dryer starts and once again when the dryer stops a rumblimng noise will be heard.

Dryer makes rumbling noise intermittently


It sounds like a faulty roller under the drum. Need to pop the top of the dryer, then remove the front -- you'll probably easily spot the faulty part.

Dryer makes rumbling sound when starting


If you remove the front cover and access the blower fan and see if it is still tight on the shaft. if it isn't it makes a rumble sound when started due to vibrating and after a while it makes more noise as it goes. Now I removed the fan and placed a shim in the flat area and matched the flat area of the shaft and replace it back on the shaft and it should solve it.

Maytag LDE8414RCM, dryer knocks and rumbles while running. Still heats and dries clothes for the moment, but the knocking and rumbling is getting worse. Thanks


That rumbling noise may be due to the fan impeller being loose on its shaft, or because of a worn rear support roller. If the machine is still drying, it may be taking longer than usual but you haven't noticed. This is a good sign it's the fan. There are a number of sites with good detailed procedures for getting at and replacing parts, as well as selling the parts you need (of course they would!). One of them is here:

If this solution gets you on the way to quiet drying, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

Electric dryer makes a rumbling when tumbler is turning.


Check the drum bearing, a load noise, and often spinning problems are symptoms of a bad drum bearing.The bearing is at the base of the drum and accessing it is not easy.

You can find diagrams and replacement parts entering model number here.
