Question about Malber TD700 Electric Dryer

DRYER VERY NOISY AND VIBRATES

I HAVE HAD MY MALBER TD700 FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS NOW. LAST YEAR WE HAD TO REPLACE THE DOOR LATCH. I EMAILED MALBER AND PURCHASED A NEW LATCH. THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL AND SENT DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PUT THE NEW LATCH ON. NOW IT IS MAKING NOISE WHEN IT TUMBLES CLOCKWISE AND IT VIBRATES AS WELL. WHEN IT TUMBLES COUNTER CLOCKWISE IT DOES NOT DO THESE THINGS. THE DRYER WORKS PERFECT OTHER WISE. COULD THIS BE A BELT PROBLEM?

Hi,

It would seem that this is a mechanical issue and therefore would require that the unit be opened for visual inspection. Based on your description, it could be the suspension system or the mounting of the tumbler. I doubt if it were the belt since any deformity of the belt would be exhibited in either clockwise or counter clockwise. It could be the belt tensioner though or the mounting of the drive motor. Often these are nothing more than rubber support much like in principle as engine support in a car.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    See if your versions has the rear panel cover held by screws. There are some version that the top has to be lifted/removed to gain access to the insides.

    Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these
    rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought
    to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged
    or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.

    There
    are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot
    of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get
    worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations
    when worn out

    Make sure
    nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below
    the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through
    the cracks.


    Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This
    spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a
    sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a
    squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out.
    Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes
    drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If
    the glides are worn, replace them as a set.



    thank you

    dont forget to accept the solution if you are OK with it.

    have a great day

Kenmore he5 dryer doesn't run, have power, door switch works, thermal fuse, have continuity?


What does the display say? Typically, these Kenmore dryers don't run because of a door latch error. We have had to have our door latch replace 3 times in 3 years. There is a lengthy trouble shooting program to bypass the latch error but it is time consuming.

How stop front loading electric dryer vibration while drum is rotating clothes.


110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.

This would have to be your door latch, in my opinion. The door simply is not holding in the button.

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years this sounds like a door interlock problem, have you had it in bits, for some reason, it sounds like the wires have been reversed, it may be that the interlock has moved or been damaged, or has just gone faulty, check wires on the interlock are not shorting out, these can normally be sen after removing the lid, start with that and post if still having problem for reasons of safety the machine should not be left plugged in if children about work with safety, unplug when working on machine
