ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
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 if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check 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.

2000 chevy 4 wheel drive has roaring noise on left front what could it be


Have a visual first up - this sounds like the plastic guard housing scraping on the wheel (this is fairly common) you will see scuffing / wear on the plastic - You can cut off loose plastic and / or replace. I did have a stone caught between my brake pad and and disc once which make a horrendous noise. A visual inspection should lead you in the right direction.

When driving my 2000 Olds Bravada, it has a loud roar noise that sounds like when a semi truck is taking off before the gears are shifted. Transmission shifts easily into gears, just this loud roar noise...


If there's a loud roaring noise all the time, then your muffler probably has a hole in it, time to get a new full or partial exhaust pipe.

If the noise goes when it changes gear, then you've probably got a gear box or thrust bearing problem.

Roaring noise


This is your radiator fan... it willl pull air through when it is needed to keep your engine and coolant cool... if your engine needs to cool quickly it will blow harder making the "roaring" sound louder

Dryer is making a terrible racket, but drys perfectly.


It depends on the noise. It could be a drum roller going bad, the idler pulley, or even something caught in the blower wheel. Can you describe the noise?
