The main bearing may be worn out at the back of the drum allowing the drum to wobble.Reach inside the drum and lift upward. If you can move it up and down this is probably the problem.

My dryer heats and dries, but when i open the door the drum doesn't stop nor does the light come on. We've changed the bulb...not the problem with the light. Also was squeekin quite a bit..now...


as far as the drum not stopping when door is opened that will be a bad door switch
the noise could be anything from a drum support roller to a blower wheel,the bearing on the motor,the rear drum bearing or even something such asa coin caught between the drum felt seal and the drum
nosies a hard to diagnose online since they dont sound the same in written form

The fan belt keeps coming off when it comes to do a spin also makes a knocking noise from the drum. its only 14 month old its a indesit wlb101 and its driving me nuts


Sounds like the main bearings could be worn.
Remove the belt, and spin drum by hand from the front of the washer,
If it is noisy or feels rough, then it is the bearings.
If that is o/k, then check the drum pulley is not broken or loose.

My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle


Hi
Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

HP Color Laserjet 2840 now makes ear-splitting whine every time


Did the noise start right after you replaced a toner? If so it must be a bad toner which is causing the gears to grind. If this noise happened out of the blue then it might be a bad fuser drive gear which is the gears that connect the fuser to the machine.

Wm12x drum stopped


It's probably the bearings. The drum have probably get so loose from the bearing, so the belt have snapped off.
