Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

Sudden loud noise ocurrs when starting

I placed a load in the dryer and a loud noise sounded. It kind of sounds like it is a belt spinning out.

I was not the last person who previously used the dryer so I am unsure if anything was different on the last dry.
* I did notice it did take several loads to dry longer, before this noice had occurred.

My funds are so limited- certaninly was not able to purchase a plan when there is no money for food this month.
The problem was fixed by removing back panel, and removing the object which had become attached to the fan. Once this was removed, free motion was restored, and loud noise had been silenced.
Thank you for having an area for free solutions, as there are many Americans who are struggling each day to get by and just don't have the extra cash to purchase a plan.

My dryer is making a squealing sound

Your drum bearings are wearing out or the belt driving it is spinning. The drum could be binding up and causing it to slow down and brake itself. The belt will continue run at regular speed and cause a loud noise as at literally slides across the drum. Kind of like spinning your tires on the pavement.

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing

Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.

Dryer makes high pitched noise when rotating

the problem is in the motor itself, if you can lube the place where the bearing and the shaft is, this is where the sound came from
appreciate your kind comment

Washer makes clunking noises.......

You didn't give to much detail about the noise, other then clunking. Does it sound like it's metal against metal? Does it sound hollow? When does the noise take place before, during or after the spin cycle.

The easiest thing to do is check to see if the motor is loose, or if you might have too much slop or slake in the belt, if you do then replace and readjust the belt.

Dryer Noise

You need to have you belt replaced. Over time the belt will strech.
this causes the dryer to still spin but the belt will sometimes loose the grasp of the drum and cause the belt to spin only.

This happens because over time with heavy loads of towles and jeans pull down on the drum as it is being loaded. Than when in cycle the jeans will drop from the top to the bottom pulling aginst it even more..

Dryer making very loud noise.

We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
