The dryer belt may have broken or come off its pulleys. Pop open top of dryer or rear vent door to look inside to see if this is your problem. Let me know if I can help, Thanks Sea Breeze

Check the drive belt and belt tensioner. From the way you describe it, the belt is loose and with a load in the drum, it will not rotate due to belt slipping.

Its most likely in your ignitor or valve and flame sensor. You can test the ignitor to see if it glows and sends amp signal to valves to open them.

To see the diagram and parts follow this link. Parts are # M110, M160, M240. Also check M220 to see if its still good.

SOURCE: I have a LG Dryer, DLG2102W. It is about 2yrs old

Hello,

The problem (noise)can be from both side or area !

However, Loud noises coming from a Whirlpool dryer are most oftencaused by loose objects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The dryerbelt allows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditionsmay cause the belt to dry out, eventually cracking and then snapping. This willcause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix the dryer belt of aWhirlpool dryer to get rid of loud noises. Instructions And Things You'll Neededto solve the problem.

Screwdriver ,Replacement dryer belt 1 Stop the Whirlpool dryer and look inside thedryer's drum for any loose objects such as coins, pens or anything else thatmay have been in a pocket of clothing. Remove the object and restart the dyerto determine if the noise has stopped.
2 Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet todisconnect all power to the unit. 3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment onthe top of the dryer. 4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel inplace. Pull the panel off to access the
dryer belt.
5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum toremove the belt. Check the dryer's belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split orbroken will cause loud noises. 6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it outto remove it. Take note on how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel awayfrom the dryer and slip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of theold belt and slip the new belt following the old belt's position ensuring thegrooved side of the belt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor toallow you to slip and loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Whirlpool dryer andscrew it in place.
9 Open the dryer door and use your hand to rotatethe drum counterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the dryer into the wall unit and begin use.If the noise still exists, you'll want to call a professional repairtechnician. Thanks for using fixya.

OK, you will need to replace the center post seals. The parts are less than $10.00 but you will need a special tool to get the basket out. Let me know if you want to tackle this job yourself and I will direct you to the parts and the tool and a video to walk you thru the repair. A service call for this will be anywhere from $100.00 to $150.00. Keep me posted!

LG dle3777w emitting a high-pitched squeal


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
If your dryer is making a squealing sound or a high pitch noise please look at the following
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

My dryer runs and heats but seems like no air is being blown. It should have some sort of a blower correct? Taking 2 cycles to get dry and vent is not clogged, but not sure about lint trap slot.


First, of course, make sure ALL the airways are clear, including the area around the lint filter, and the outside vent - lint likes to stick to the outside vent flap, so make sure you clean that off too, and that it opens and closes freely.

Here's how to get the dryer apart

There is a blower wheel, but it's powered by the same motor and belt which turns the drum. So if your drum is turning, the blower wheel should be turning, too. If not, you may have to replace the blower wheel. Here a link showing how to do so:

The blower wheel is making a lot of noise. How do


Remove the front face of the dryer and continue to disassemble the dryer until you have access to the blower wheel. The blower wheel is manufactured with a D shaped hole in the middle. If the whole on the inside of the blower wheel become rounded, then the wheel rotates at a different speed than your motor, causing the loud vibrations you have been hearing.

Using the pliers, remove the holding pin & blower wheel clamp. The clamp is the green ring and the pin is the small horse-shoe shaped pin with an arrow pointing to it.

Pull the old blower wheel off. You should see that the whole in the center is round rather than D-shaped.

Put the new blower wheel in place.

Replace the ring clamp & holding pin.

Re-assemble the dryer.

Model no. LDE8506ACE has a noise when running seems like maybe drum rollers or belt. how do I get to drum?


This link is provided by www.repairclinic.com and shows parts breakdown/disassembly procedures, etc.
A faulty blower could also cause a noise during operation and as the motor slow rpms on stopping.

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.
