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:

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)

Check and make sure the belt is routed right, and that the back of the dry lip is on the drum rollers, Good Luck Tim:

Constant loud squeaking


Squeaking is normally caused by a bad bearing or a slipping drum belt.

How to replace belt on Creda T620 CW Tumble Dryer


Remove the back panel quite a few screws, once of the belt can be seen, mind your fingers (use hook on metal coat hanger or the like) and roll the drum slowly with the hook under the belt directing it off the drum, refit is much the same as removal although special care should be taken not to nip the belt, fit to small pulley first on motor then turn drum slowly gradually rolling onto the drum mind the fingers and obviously make sure machine is off.

Dryer tries to turn but then shuts off


Hi espichfamily

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like the 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 this will cause the drum not to roll.
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 they will make a thumping type of noise.
If your drum rollers have too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them and are only squeeling then they probably only need lubrication.
Remove the rollers and clean the shafts that the roller rolls on, remove any hair,dust,etc from roller and shaft.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vaseline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.

How do i change the belt on my kitchenaid dryer


Hello, W/D here.

Unplug the dryer first! Place the belt on the drum, then the motor pulley. Raise the tensioning pulley past the belt, and let it come to rest on the belt, placing it in tension. Roll the drum over several times by hand to align the belt on the drum, and close it back up.
Best regards,
--W/D--

Dryer makes banging sound as drum rotates


The drum rollers are worn out and wobble when moving..it should be more of a thump/thump sound, unless really are almost gone...UNPLUG dryer and raise top...Since no model. i'm going with standard kenmore/whirlpool dryer type. The top has two screws by lint filter..Remove these and raise top...The front can be removed by removing two screws inside each front corner. The door switch must be disconnected at wiring..Remove front and set aside...The drum can be removed after the belt comes off...look down in right rear corner under drum..you will see the belt pulley and you want to see how it goes around pulley to help reinstall..remove belt, there will be tension and make sure you draw yourself a diagram of path of belt to ease install of belt....now once belt is removed, you can pull out drum...there are two drum rollers. They are bad if you roll them and they wobble and make noise. They should be almost quiet when you roll them if they are good..the belt roller can be bad and squeek...check this as well...replace parts and reinstall

Clothes dryer makes a ''thumping'' sound


One of your rollers has a flat spot in it or something stuck to it. Every time it rolls round to that spot the drum jumps over the little speed bump in the road. The wheel needs to be replaced.

Worn dryer belt tensioner


Good day,
For the cost, it isn't worth not changing. If it's down, remove the drum and check the rear wheels as well.
P.S. If you remove the drum, after re-installing make sure the felt on the back of the drum doesn't double over for you. If it does, assemble then take a small thin screw driver and as you rotate the drum, roll it back in place.

Maytag model #LDE7304ACL. Clackety sound


Are any of the bars that are mounted inside the drum loose? You may have to open the top and tighten the mounting screws from outside the drum. There may also be a hunk of the drive belt missing. Roll the drum two turns slowly in the normal turning direction while checking the belt surface that contacts the drum. Replace the belt if it looks broken in places or is full of cracks.

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...


It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.
