Noise in dryer

My dryer sounds like an MRI machine with LOUD banging every time I use it. It is a Whirlpool front load gas dryer. Can I fix it myself?

    it doesn't bounce around, it just makes a horrible banging sound. It still works, it's just the noise.

Does the drum turn smoothly, or does it bounce around? If it bounces, it could be the bearings in the drum wheels going out. The wheels would need to be replaced ($20 on up).

I just had a new COZY L.P. GAS CDV336C installed... Every few minutes it makes a loud bang noise...It then makes pinging noises that gradually fade out...This happens 2-4 times every hour. The bang is loud...


Hi Loretta:
I'd contact the installer. This sounds as if there may be a slow leak. When the gas concentration is high enough it will ignite which would be the bang that you hear. The popping sound could be the flame at the leak source point re-igniting for a few times.
DEFINITELY CONTACT YOUR INSTALLER OR GAS INSPECTOR. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD.

Makes loud noises


Although there may not be any gas parts involve you should have gas technician work on the unit. Depending on the noise your hearing it could be a number of things, if its making a scraping noise it could be that your front drum glides are gone allowing the drum to ride on the frame of the door. glide part numbers are 306508. if the noise you hear sounds like a grating sound it could be that your blower wheel has something caught in it and is now rubbing on all of the fan blades on the blower.blower part number is 33002797. if you hear a loud banging noise you could have a rear bearing issue. both roller bearing part numbers are y303373.hope this helps

Thanks

Dryer has a banging noise


It Is fixable.All you need to is try to balance the load or a perfect concrete flat surface for the machine.
If the problem still persists, then during the previous vibrations, the shocks or the drum bearings might have been damaged, you might have well replace them to avoid further problems.good luck.and please post your comments.

Gas dryer makes loud hum


Sounds like you may have a motor issue, they can get lint trapped inside, and it causes the motor to overheat, and eventually go out. You can remove the top, then the front, and see if thats the problem. Usually, once the motor starts making noise, its time to replace. Right now, the packings in the motor are cold, and once they heat up, they stop making noise, so it could last quite a while.

Maytag gas dryer noise when burner comes on


The noise you are describing is coming from the gas valve solenoid coil assembly. This is usually indicative of weak coil.
If this is a warranty situation, request a factory authorized certified technician to replace the solenoid assy. at no charge.
If you want to fix it yourself, be sure and ask us for instructions on replacing the part safely.
