Dryer is making a scratching noise


Could be something simple like a coin or other metal object caught in the drum edge and rubbing as it turns. Next could be a bad or worn bearing surface for the drum causing it to rub metal on metal instead of riding on the proper bearing surface like it should. Metal on metal rubbing usually produces a black powder looking substance so look for that or a shiny metal edge around the drum edges.

My maytag dryer makes noise like metal grinding against metal and small items get stuk in the inside rim, any idea?


the fabric-like bushing or pad that the lip of the drum rides on, has either came off or been worn away, and is now rubbing metal on metal. Thus wearing the two surfaces away.

Hi peggymaag...
You have drum rollers that need lubrication or replacement...also you felt seal at the door may need to be replace if it is a metal to metal contact that is making the metal rubbing noise or it could be the drum bearing is going bad and making the metal noise you hear.

DRYER MODEL DE7400P FRIGIDAIRE IS MAKE NOISE LIKE RUBBING METAL HOW DO I FIX?


Hi martyski39...

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your dryer drum is mounted in the rear with a bearing, most likely the bearing is faulty and making the grinding noise, or maybe two conditions exist.
1...Bad drum bearing noisy
2...Bad drum bearing noisy, and with play in the bearing allowing the drum to rub the felt seal away at the door making metal to metal contact.Check your door for obvious rub signs...
I will include a parts house webpage link where you can look at you "exploded" view of your dryer and order parts also.

Squeeking noise are the barron going bad


Squeaking noises are NOT necessarily an indication of bearing failure - but could be an indication of a slipping belt or something else rubbing. The machine itself may be rubbing against a washer, wall, door jamb, or anything really.

Look around the machine. See if it is in contact - or close to ant of these things. When it is running - it could be bumping against something. If nothing is found - have a look inside the the dryer. Inspect the belt and clean the drum where the belt tracks. Repl;ace the belt it is ready to break, missing parts or de-laminating. If you find shiny metal filings - that indicates metal is rubbing somewhere and is likely to be the cause of the squeak.

Good luck.

The dryer squeals extremely loud when drying. It sounds like metal scraping against metal.It appears the drum may be rubbing against something. I have lubricated all moving parts.

Kenmore Dryer 110 is making a loud squeaking noise.


Only a few things will make that noise. The squeaking is caused by a moving part having trouble turning while rubbing against a fixed part.
  1. The idler pulley is worn
  2. The drum support rollers are hard turning on their shafts
  3. The felt seals at the front or back of the drum is worn allowing metal to metal contact while turning
  4. An article has fallen into the housing around the blower wheel and the wheel is rubbing on it.
Listen for the frequency of the sound. The drum rollers and drum felts will squeak at the frequency of the tub turning. The idler pulley turns much faster as does the blower wheel. Knowing this will help pin down the cause.

The following link has valuable information on taking apart your style of dryer:

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing


Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.

My GE Profile DPSE810 Electic Dryer has started making a scraping noise when the drum rotates. What could be causing the scraping? It makes the noise even if I take out all the clothes and there is nothing...


Told by several GE Service Techs that the noise is normal metal expansion & nothing can be done. Anyone else have this issue?
First dryer in over 40 years we ever heard this type of noise.

GE GAS DRYER DDE7500G


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
