The tension wheels of the drive belt contact the dryer drum during rotation causing a banging sound. How can the dryer body be dismantled to get at the tension wheels without causing damage to the appliance structure?

Maytag dryer


If this is the metal drum model of Maytag dryer, then the drum is likely out of round and will be evidenced by a broken spot weld on the seam where the drum is welded. I have had to replace mine for that very issue. Not cheap! Hope that is not the case for yours, but just rotate the drum by hand and you will see a high and low spot during the rotation. If the high and low spots are consistent, you know your drum is out of round and likely has busted spot welds. You can run it like that for a while if you can stand the thumping. If no out of round condition, then check the roller alignment and see if the bracket got tweaked not allowing it to rest on the drum. Again...if it touche s the drum and then leaves the drum as the drum is rotate by hand, the drum is out of round. Hope this helps

Beko DRVS6W tumble dryer squeaks when the drum comes to a halt


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

After replacing my belt and drum rollers my roper dryer has a clicking noise as it rotates


Could be a lot of things causing it, blower wheel, motor, idler pulley, rollers. Dryers have several moving parts that could cause a clicking sound. The blower fan could be coming into contact with something. There is a motor, tensioner and a belt that turn the main drum, the tensioner for the belt could be loose thus causing the clicking noise as well.

Belt in place, motor turning, belt moving very slow or not at all. slipping?


This is usually caused from a worn belt or a faulty belt tensioner. From the back of the dryer you should be able to see the belt tensioner and see if the wheel on the tensioner is turning. If it's not then you need a new tensioner, if it is then its likely to be a belt.
The other causes for this problem may be a drum wheel or drum bearing which has failed. The drum wheel hold the drum up and are located generally on the bottom of the drum. These wheels have a brass center for a bearing and if they are bad will generally cause a grinding or squealing noise.

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

Thumping/rubbing sound in drum


The belt tensioner roller has a flat spot caused by a worn bearing that catches and stops whilet the drum is turning. This causes the flat spot and the noise its making. You can purchase a new roller by itself and do change the belt the same time too

Maytag dryer won't rotate after blower wheel replacement


Check the drive belt and belt tensioner. From the way you describe it, the belt is loose and with a load in the drum, it will not rotate due to belt slipping.

I'm having a problem re-fitting the drive belt to my Simpson Sirocco 455 tumble dryer. After installing the belt around the drum, drive pulley and tension wheel, I align the front end of the drum with the...


After some mild swearing, I made sure that I had the belt around the drum aligned (in the same plane) as closely as I could with the drive pulley and tensioning wheel. I think this was partially achieved by placing the belt as close to that position as possible before lining up the front end of the drum with the cabinet opening, and then turning the drum from the front (through the open door) very slowly clockwise (the direction of its normal rotation) to give the belt "time" to align itself fully with the smaller pulleys. A short prayer and a few minutes later, the machine was humming away with all parts playing their "part" in beautiful harmony - without the dreaded sound of a thin black drive belt cluncking to the floor of the metal cabinet.
Cheers,
Andy B.
