What do we do to address thumping noise in Kenmore Elite HE4 Dryer?


It is probably one of the idler wheels it rotates on. Look for a flat spot and if you didn't replace the drum your self ask for your money back.

Drive Motor

The dryer drive motor turns the drum and the blower wheel to exhaust the air. If the dryer stops the motor might be defective. If the dryer stops and the dryer motor makes a humming noise there might be something caught in the blower wheel, or the drum might be binding. Try removing the belt from the motor and checking the blower wheel for obstructions. Also try rotating the drum by hand with the belt off, it should rotate freely. If the drum doesn't turn freely, determine what is causing it to bind. The dryer motor can't be tested easily. If the drum turns freely and the blower wheel is clear, and yet the dryer still keeps stopping mid-cycle the motor may be defective. it will need to be replaced. It is not serviceable.

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.

Drum Roller

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If they are worn out or start binding the motor can get overloaded and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, check to be sure the drum turns freely with the belt removed. If not, check the rollers. Do not lubricate the rollers or roller shaft, lubrication will attract lint and cause the roller bearings to wear out faster. If the rollers don't turn freely, replace them. The roller shaft can often be reused, unless it has worn down. Clean the shaft thoroughly before installing the new rollers.

Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The front of the dryer drum is supported by small pieces of plastic-like material. As the drum rotates, it slides on these plastic pieces. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, it may be that one or more of these plastic slides or glides has worn out. When they wear out the drum can start binding and put strain on the motor. The motor then shuts down and the dryer stops. Check the glides for wear and replace as needed.

Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. Over time this bearing will wear out and may cause several different problems. If the dryer stops during the cycle it may be that this drum bearing has worn out and is putting too much strain on the motor. If the belt is removed and the drum spins freely, the drum bearing is probably not worn out. If the drum bearing is worn out, there may be some grinding or squealing, and the drum will be hard to turn.

Dryness Control Board

The dryness control board shuts off the dryer when the clothes have reached the level of dryness selected by the user. If the dryer stops too early, the dryness control board might be defective. This is not very common and other possibilities should be checked first.

What's your problem?Squealing Speed Queen dryer


The drum of the dryer has a belt that turns the drum while in operation. These belts are not hard to replace and if your old belt is still attached you can visually see how it is positioned on the drum. However, there are also at least three rollers that carry the drum allowing it to rotate as it is being turned by the belt. These rollers are also not that expensive and are relatively easy to replace. Since the machine is 20 years old you may experience some problems finding the parts (maybe not)> You can check with the company via the internet and find out. Just give them the model number and a description of the part. The pulley that is attached to the shaft of the motor that drives the belt that turns the drum could also be worn out. Replacing the pulley on a machine that old can be trying but not impossible. If you have a technician check out and make repairs on these potential problems it probably cost well over $180 but if you have any mechanical ability you can probably do the job yourself if you can locate the parts. Just make sure the machine is unplugged from an electrical source before removing the back and the rest is just work.

I changed the belt, it sounds like it works now but drum does not roll????


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Things to check..

1. Belt and ilder pulley properly positioned?
Use this link to make sure you have it correct:
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Belt-Diagrams

2. Make sure the drum felt seals are not rolled / folded over. If it is folded / rolled slide the shanke of a screwdriver under the felt and rotate the drum 360 deg until it straightens out. (Front and rear seals.)

3. Make sure the drum rollers are resting in the drum groove and not behind the drum

These manuals will be a big help: (page 25)

Dryer modle Tc7102w/t5c7102s was working ok but drum won't rotate


Theres two things to look at, the brushes on the motor, replaceable and cheap, if they are are healthy then there is one or sometimes two large capacitors, these give the motor the ooomf to get it rotating, these fail which is a common problem with washing machines and dryers, again about £5= on ebay.

DRUM IS NOT ROTATING, BLOWER IS WORKING AND IS PRODUCING HEAT could i have blown a belt?


Try this first:
Unplug the dryer, reach inside and try to rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn, sometimes motors get dead zones in them and this will rotate it out of the zone if that is your problem.
If that did not work then chances are that you have a broken belt.
If you have a front loading machine:
If you remove the front of the dryer, it will expose the drum and the belt, if you remove the drum it will expose the drum rollers, motor, and idler pulley.
I hope this helps

Money (change) caught inside interior drum plastic pieces.


Remove the top lid.
Rotate the drum until a vane is at the 12 o'clock position.
Remove the screws from the drum holding the vane in place.

Dryer Drum not rotating


If warm air is still coming from the unit, but the drum is not rotating, it sounds like your drive motor is fine, but your drive belt is broken. Depending on you dryer model, these can be fairly easy to check, or may take a little creativity to get the dryer apart. Knowing your dryer model number would go a long way towards assisting further.
