SOURCE: Kenmore dryer makes roaring oise when the drum turns

I have the same problem. I thought originally it was the seal around the drum but we pinpointed it to the fan motor. We think there is something wrapped around the fan motor or the bearings is going out.We would have to take everything out the drum and belt and motor to get to the problem. If you take the back panel off and take the lint trap off you can turn the fan and you can hear the loud noise. We tried spraying wd-40 around the fan pin but don't get any on the motor. It will burn it up if you do that. But it didn't work so you will have to take everything out.

SOURCE: whistling noise when accelerating

you most likely have an aftermarket radio installed
the noise you hear is engine noise, if yo turn your radio off it will go away
this can be fixed by either getting better wiring for your aftermarket radio or by installing a noise filter, you can purchase that at most big electronic stores

Have you check to see if the belt is off track or broken.

SOURCE: kenmore dryer making rumbling noises

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication. Check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Could be a clogged spray arm... take it out and give it a good cleaning. That might help.

Kenmore elite dryer whistles when the heat element engages

Not knowing anything about your dryer, such as model number or age and when the last time it was given a good tune up. I would say that the pulley that works as a belt tensioner needs to be replaced. My best suggestion would be to give your dryer a good tune up which includes replacing all the rollers and pulley, the belt and a good cleaning. This would probably cure your noise and it would also reduce the chance of a dryer fire.

I hope this helps

Dryer does not start, makes a high pitched whistle noise.

Can your drum be stalled and the whistling is created by the belt slipping on the pulley on the motor?

Remove the top and front to look more closely at your situation.

Let me know what you find.

WHISTLING NOISE-DAY AND NIGHT REFRIGERATOR MODEL # GSS201BPDWW

Pull the cover off to the fan and compressor housing and clean it. Clean coiling as well. Most coils are located under the unit. They make an appliance brush to reach between the coils that can be purchased at an appliance store.

Kenmore elite HE3

You need to check if the Spray Arms are knocking against an item in a basket. If the source of noise cannot be determined, run a program without plates or glassware. If the noises continue, let me know for further investigation.
