What you need to due is take front off dryer and either you're blower is making the noise, or the idler pulley and even the support wheels could be as well

It appears your belt and POSSIBLY pulley/tensioner has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

If it runs but no heat that is probably your heating element.
I recently worked on one of theses and got my grandson to snap a few photos of the repair.

Makes a horrible noise. Seems to dry fine but before its done it sound like it going to explode.


The blower wheel may be stripped out or broken.
This will cause a loud rumble noise while operating.

DRYER IS MAKING NOISES


A common broblem with dryers and washers alike is the underwire out of womens bras coming out and getting through one of the holes in the drum wich makes a horrible racket. Open the door and use a flashlight to look inside to see if you can see the underwire in one of the holes. They also get stuck in the front seal where the drum rides around this is another good place to look.

Dryer comes on for a few minutes, makes horrible sound and goes off. now won't start at all. Frigidaire stackable


It could be the belt was partially broken, and as it came apart causing the dryer to no longer start,,, it made the noise your talking about. If the dryer still heats up, and you can hear the motor running,,, these would all be signs toward a broken belt.

Horrible noise


The noise could be coming from the blower housing, as this unit does not have bearings, it does have 4 rollers however. If the unit is working on timed dry and not sensors there may be a problem with them. Check your venting though, if it is too short it may not have enough back pressure for the sensors to operate properly. This could also cause your thermosats to blow, the one is a manual reset, either way you are going to have to get a gas tech out there.
