Question about Kenmore 72982 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Loud dryer I have a Kenmore 72982. It's making a really loud noise whenever I turn it on. It's drying well, but the noise is constant the whole time the dryer is running. It sounds like the drum is off balance or there's something wrong with one of the belts. Is this something I can fix?

Kenmore gas dryer 97273100 was drying, but making a loud noise


You need a belt. Here's a link to a site with a good set of instructions if you want to try repairing it yourself. (You should DIY. You can save a bunch on the service call and the belt is only about $20.)

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
