Pull the front panel off and check the roller wheels that the drum rides on. These have bearings in them that will eventually go bad and start to make a racket. They can be easily replaced and are usually sold at appliance parts stores in pairs.

Clunking banging noise


It may be something stuck in the drum, ie a bra wire, which would have extra weight on it whilst the clothes are wet. If this is the case, it will need looking at sooner, rather than later, as it will just be causing further internal damage

My dryer is making a squealing sound


Your drum bearings are wearing out or the belt driving it is spinning. The drum could be binding up and causing it to slow down and brake itself. The belt will continue run at regular speed and cause a loud noise as at literally slides across the drum. Kind of like spinning your tires on the pavement.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Spins but no heat


Update - we solved the same problem by resetting the Stat. Follow the instructions posted by kevinwhiteho, but we found that you had to push on the opposite side of the Stat with your finger whilst pushing the pin onto the trip mechanism.

Could be coins in the drum.  Might also be a bad roller bearing.  Hard to tell.

Whirlpool condenser dryer not working. Power coming in to machine but that is about it.


hiya
does the machine make a buzzing noise? or heat up?

if it makes a buzzing noise and heats up it will more than likely be the motor surpressor, all this does is gives the motor a kick start to set it off tumbling with a wet load. theres a quick way you can check if it is this at fault, make sure the drum is empty and set timer as you would normally, open the door and spin the drum as hard as you can then shut the door quickly (whilst drum is still turning if you can), the dryer should now run normally until it stops again.

hope this helps


please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj
