Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My LG Tromm dryer started purring today. It is a constant noise while the dryer is running and sounds like a large cat purring.

    After a technician came out and installed a new thermostat (?), it sounds like there is a chain turning in the dryer if it starts up. That noise comes and goes..is not constant.

The guide that the drum sits on may have been damaged or worn or maybe a piece of fabric or some foreign material is lodge in between. The top cover of the dryer can be remove so you can examine it. Of course makes sure it is unplugged before doing any of that. Most of the time the drum guide is made of plastic material and wears out too. Good luck

LG Tromm electric dryer model DLE5977B is making an extremely loud humming noise.


Humming is caused when the slow start capacitor on the motor fails. Better to buy a new dryer as the motor is usually around $160. Yours is $145. I suggest you take professional advice on such a high outlay rather than risking the advice of someone who hasn't physically checked the machine. I have two pro dryers in my hotel fail, and they buzzed.

How may belts on lg tromm dryer


The start button is a momentary start button. It energizes a relay type switch to keep power on. Try holding the start button in for awhile and do not let go. If the machine keeps running, then for sure, the relay type switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.

Sounds like loose belt. If the drum spins by hand, it's almost guaranteed to be a bad belt.

LG Tromm wm 1814cw makes loud noise


You will need to remove the back cover plate of the machine and locate the large pulley at the end of the drum. Remove the belt, then the pulley and you should see a bearing housing. Some models require a bearing and housing replacement, while others can simply be repaired with a bearing replacement alone.
Go here, and find the nearest Dealer for your part.

Or you can try ordering direct from LG. If you are as handy with tools as you say, this should be a fairly easy job.
