May want to check your venting system to the outside. If the dryer cannot blow out enough heat outside due to the vent being clogged or kinked, then it will overheat causing panels and moving parts inside the dryer to get too hot and rattle.

There is a loud noise while going through final stages of wash. Sounds like pump motor whineing.


Hello

When an appliance such as a dishwasher starts making a new noise, you need to isolate the cause of the noise so that you know whether or not it is damaging the machine. Several things can cause a noisy dishwasher.

Motor

Dishwashers are driven by an internal motor that gets quite noisy when defective. The problem occurs when a seal breaks down and allows water to access the bearings in the motor, removing the grease needed for proper lubrication and creating a loud motor noise when the dishwasher runs. The seal or bearings need to be replaced in this situation quickly or more extensive damage to the motor may occur.

Inlet Valve

If the inlet valve on your dishwasher is broken or breaking, you will hear a distinctive thumping or clattering noise whenever a load is run. A thumping noise doesn't always indicate this problem, however, depending on when you hear it. If you hear a noise like this when the water is filling up the dishwasher at the start of the cycle, the noise likely points to an inlet valve problem.

Squealing

A high-pitched squealing noise is an indication that something is wrong with the fan. Fan bearings that are worn out indicate that the fan apparatus needs to be replaced. If the noise you're hearing is in fact coming from the fan, it will only occur when the dishwasher is drying the dishes. Dishwashers use a fan to generate and distribute heat to dry the dishes quickly.

Minor Concerns

Sometimes even a minor concern can cause a great deal of noise. The thing to watch for is whether or not the noise repeats itself on multiple loads. A loud noise on a single load that doesn't repeat could be caused by things like a loose utensil or small implement rattling around loose in the dishwasher. Also inspect the bottom of your dishwasher. Hardened bits of old food can become rock hard under the heat in the dishwasher and cause noise when the unit runs.

Loud rattling noise.


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Often when an upright is making a rattling noise it can be something caught in the roller and every time the brush turns it knocks against the body and since it turns really fast it can sound quite bad. Take the roller out and clean inside that area and see if that helps. Hope it does. Happy Vacuuming :)

Loud rattling grinding noise when pump is running, no water enters the machine.


Make sure the water is turned on to the machine, if it is then it sounds like a faulty water fill valve, just replace the fill valve, they can sometimes be cleaned but I would never trust one, they can always stick in the on position later and flood your house. Check to see if the valve is geting 120v ac before replaceing the valve, if it's getting voltage and no water is flowing then the valve is bad. You will need to borrow or buy a multi-meter for this test.

Washing machine makes a loud rattling sound


Hi.k.
Even though you have cleaned filter, there could still be something in the pump, you need to remove the pump and check there is nothing in it.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Rattling


Level the drier, check the drum for foreing objects, check your belt and replace if need to. Check your rear drum seal, and your drier idler pulley, and replace if need to.
