Why is my 1987 300e Mercedes making a loud clanging noise at start up?


I would think the honeycomb ceramic "Brick" inside the Catalytic Converter has broken up, makes a terrible rattling when this happens.

Scraping sound from dryer when running


If the sound seems to come from the front of the drum it's probably the felt guides. The bottom one will wear first and make a grinding, rattle like sound. You can access it by removing the front panel which includes the door. It fits around the drum at the front. Here's a diagram. Some models have a two piece and some a one piece guide. Part 4 on this diagram is one. It's called a seal here.
If the sound comes from the rear, there is a nylon bearing and metal socket at the rear center of the drum.

I cleaned out my lint tray and after I put it back in, the dryer started making a grinding noise?


Hi,
Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a squeak.
Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)
May be loose drum slides can cause a metal scraping noise as the drum rotates. For that you'll need to contact Crosley Service Center.

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

Grinding niose from agitator.


If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.
