    I have the same problem. Does anyone know what the solution is?

    I had a repair man come out and he said it is the motor ... but this diagnosis seems to be the most expensive available.



    Thanks

    I have the same problem except my noise seems to originate from the back. It began as a small vibrating noise inside back similar to what a coin would sound like inside the exterior metal vent hose, but inside. After one week this turned into a loud RUMBLING sound, again in the back. Dryer is 2 years old.

My dryer makes terrible noise when tumbling. It is a loud squeaking noise. Is it a belt that needs to be replaced?


Loud squeaky noises are usually a dry bearing--in this case, probably the one(s) that hold up the front of the drum. Open the top to inspect, then remove the front panel to replace or repair. Hope this helps!

I have a maytag ldg8200aaw gas dryer. it works and will dry clothes well but makes an extremely loud grinding noise as the drum turns...sometimes it even seems as if it is not engaging...I am trying to...


Your dryer is definitely worth fixing. The blower wheel is plastic 53-0106, These will wear out and get loose. Make noise and the clothes take a long time to dry. Repair Photosa9a0520.jpg

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.

Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE making horribly loud noise while drying


Solution for the Maytag model is most likely to replace the blower wheel. Remove the two screws on the front panel (just a couple inches off the floor) and swing the front panel up to allow you to unhook the top side of the panel from the clips at the very top of the front panel. You do not have to remove the wires, just set the front panel to the side. Blower wheel is at the lower left. The old wheel most likely no longer has a D shaped hole to match the motor shaft, and spins freely. Remove cover. Replace the wheel part number Y303836 for a LDG7304AAE which is held on the shaft with a spring type clamp. Reassemble. Not really very hard to do. On a difficulty scale or 1 - 10, I'd rate it a 3.

Loud Squeaking Noise kenmore gas dryer 80 series


You need to change your drum rollers. To get to them you take the dryer apart from the front not the back. There are 2 screws where the filter goes in on top. Then pull the top toward you and up. Then remove the 2 - 5/16 inch screws on each side of the front panel about 2 to 3 inches down. Then pull the front up and out. Then you will see everything. Replace the belt, drum rollers, and idler making sure to oil each as you re-install them. Then put back together and your on your way.
