Check the paddles on the inside of the drum to see if one has come loose.

Dryer is clicking as the tub is spinning, sounds like is is coming from left front any hints on how to take off the top


Most dryer tops come off by releasing the clips at both front corners
Slip a 2" putty knife between the top and the front about 2" in from the end and push
The clip should release then do the other side and you should be able to rock the top upwards

Dryer is knocking,on left rear side you can feel the knocking and when you press it knocks louder


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

The dryer sounds like an unbalanced washer. Sound is coming from the front top left side. Machine diesn't move. does it even when empty. Began after was on for about 10 minutes.


Possible bad bearing for the drum front or maybe a drive belt with a missing segment that thumps with every revolution. You will need to open the top to inspect--either screws in the back edge of the top or insert a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring catch on each side. Hope this helps!

Knocking sound in upper left of refrigerator.


Yes, there is a ventilator (fan) for recirculating air. Looks like needs some maintenance (bearings regreased/oiled) or, if the worn is too high and blades are disbalanced, a new one.

Ge dryer started making a loud rubbing sound


Sounds Like the drum is scraping. You can remove the drum and inspect the felt bearing/gasket for damage or a coin or screw that got lodged in it. You will need to remove Top and front in order to remove drum Carefully note the routing of the belt near the moter.

Knocking sounds


Ususally knocking is a sign that the rubber belt which spins the dryer tub is old and has hardened. If the knocking sound gets quieter after you have run the dryer for 30 minutes or so, then the belt is the problem. As the dryer turns, it heats up the rubber belt and makes the belt more pliable. This quiets the knock. I have seen dryers work fine for years, knocking the whole time. Have the belt replaced if the sound bothers you.
