Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Loud noise When dryer starts it sounds just like someone stood beside it and kicked it as hard as they could. Dryer is 5 years old and has been moved to new house about a month ago. I pulled open the top but could see nothing amiss. Couldn't get into the part where the motor is without taking half the cabinet apart. Unit works but this noise is the loudest I've ever heard from a dryer.

    Took it apart and my fan had disintegrated. Hard to find a replacement too in my part of the country. Ontario Canada.

    My LG dryer (3 yrs old) makes a loud clunk with each drum rotation. It is getting louder every week. The dryer has not been moved from its current location. I think something is wearing out. We cleaned out the hose vent.

I had a similar problem, it also would make a loud clunk when the cycle was finished. Hate to say it but take it apart and check the blower fan. Mine had come loose from the mounting nut and the bushing wore out. The loud clunk was from the fan hitting the mounting nut as it was free wheeling.

Got tipped sideways or other in move and the drum is not on the runners.(Felt front and Bogey/rear)... (Some of these you can reposition buy lifting the drum up from the inside and adjust realigning)..

They can make a racket!

I have a Maytag Dependable Care Heavy Duty dryer and it makes an awful noise when it runs, also it isn't heating what should I do?


the knocking is either a belt that is going or one of the wheels is broken(they ride on three or four wheels). and those fixes are fairly inexpensive. but if it is also not heating, that can be inexpensive or not. maybe a new one, or fairly new via craigslist. how old is your dryer. over 10-12 years, maybe replace this one

Kenmore 500 series dryer won't start. Only 2.5 years old.


turn the drum with your hand,if it feels hard to move you could have something stuck in the blower wheel that is below the lint filter and behind the duct that the filter slides into or the belt could be jammed,if it moves try starting it it might start you could have a flat spot on the motor and most likely you'll need to replace it,if it'shumming it's the motor making the sound

You need to check the motor isn't bad which is possible. All of what you have stated is possible. You are going to have to check out each and every one until you find it. But all three can cause it.

if the motor buzzes when you push start then it is a bad motor.as long as the drum turns freely by hand.

Kenmore Dryer works for about 20 MINUTES, not seconds


SD, doesn't sound like the same problem. Yours sounds more the like motor kicking out on overload and when it cools down you are able to start it again. The thermal fuse and high limit TCO are non resettable so you can rule them out. You are going to have to check some things out. Make sure the rollers and pulley are not binding. The blower wheel is not binding. These things will cause a drag on the drum and put a heavy load on the motor. Catriver...post back
