    I have this same problem, only now it's making the sound pretty much throughout the drying cycle and it takes forever for a load to dry. If it's the wheel, where do I get one and is it easy to change out? Thanks for your help. g

Don't turn the tub to much this may make the belt run off track . If the machine makes a rumble at the beginning and at the end or when u stop the machine and restart it it is probably the blower wheel,it is made of plastic ans wears out on the motor shaft.

Hotpoint Tumble Dryer keeps pausing

That sounds like an overheating problem. When the machine pauses, the blower fan stops running and that allows the heat to build up enough to trip the high level thermostat. You can test this by running a cool cycle.

Drive belts don't squeak because they are made of rubber. Things that do squeak are rear drum bearing, front bearings or drum slides, idler pulley wheels or the tension springs.

The machine needs a full strip down, cleaning, de-fluffing and lubrication. Also check the exhaust hose and the grill outside except it appears you have a condensing dryer. Make sure that unit is clean..


How to stop dryer from making loud noises and tumbler from hitting inside walls

A dryer kit contains the wheels that the drum turns on, new glides, to keep the drum in place, and a tension pulley for the belt. You may also need a rear bearing. I'd say about $60 in parts and an hour or two & you'd be good to go.

what's the model number,kenmore doesn't make anything,if it starts with 110. it will be whirlpool made,if it's 417. it's frigidaire,if it's a whirlpool it will be a belt kit,you get the belt,rollers and pulley,if it's frigidaire made most likely it will be the rear bearing.

What is making my dryer sound noisy?

Money in it lol.Time for a new one look on kijji for it.Its prob the bearings.

I have a ge dryer model dvl223eb6ww. It has gotten very noisy and sounds like somwthings rubbing or its struggling . any ideas?

Check the belt tensioners pulley for the bearing in the idler pulley does freeze upo causing a thumping sound when they go bad

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.

The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.

I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken
