Frigidaire dryer started making load noise when motor is running

Hello - Is it a rubbing or thumping noise? If so, it sounds like the tub could possibly be unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.

I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

Maytag Legacy series dryer making loud noise. Sounds like something flapping.

A common problem on these dryers is the blower wheel itself will wobble out and make noises. Pop the top with a putty knife then remove the front panel. Check the blower housing for looseness.or something in it. I worked on a monkey wards dryer with a bad blower wheel and made crappy movie on my phone:

IGNIS dryer makes too much noise

idler wheel bearing probably shot. if you can get the back off, you should be able to see the wheels on the bottom sides of the drum. they are just held on with a bolt. may be able to find parts on line

How to determine WHat is making the squeeling noise front outside of drum is worn like something is rubbing how do u look inside dryer it is fully enclosed

you will half to disassemble the unit by removing the screws on the back of the unit cover, place all the screws and bits and things in a box or something you won`t lose them, you can now use a flash-light with the unit running and observe the location of the sound you will likely see what is causing the noise.

When the dryer is running it makes squeaking noises. what is the problem. what can be done to fix it.

There could be something stuck between the inner and outer drums, or (more likely) the main drum bearing has worn out. A third possibility is that one of the motor or idler pulleys is making the noise, but in my experience this isn't extremely likely. The best approach would be to remove the rear panel (don't forget to unplug first) and turn a few things by hand to see if you can identify where the noise is coming from. Remove the back panel of the drum to clear anything stuck between the inner and the outer. If you find that the drum bearing is worn, you should be able to undo the bracket holding it and purchase a replacement from an engineering supplies store or specialised bearing retailer.

Electric Dryer Model DCSR473EVOWW has loud scraping sound when drum turning .... sounds like metal on metal

There is likely to be something stuck between the inner drum and the outer casing. In my experience this is most commonly the wire from an underwired bra! (belonging to my wife!)

If the inner drum has holes in it feel the surface carefully all over to try to detect a wire or other object protruding into the drum. If you find something it can often be pulled free with a pair of pliers or pincers.

Kenmore dryer keeps making a ringing sound when dryer is on.

If the nois is kind of rattling noise, then it is usually caused by objects (coins etc.) trapped between inner and outer drum. If instead is an high pitched noise that gets louder when the machine spins faster, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

Loud noise when dryer runs

Two items on two different dryers can make this noise. One is the belt tensioner pulley and the other is the bearing on a Frigidaire dryer.
