Cause 1 – Drive Belt

The drive belt is a long and thin belt which wraps all around the dryer of the drum, around a tension pulley, and then back around the drive motor. It can become damaged with regular use over time. When the drive belt tears or becomes damaged, the dryer can make a grating sound as it turns. Carefully examine the drive belt to see if it is damaged. If it is torn or damaged, then you must replace it. This is the main cause if Dryer Makes Noise use for fix Dryer repair  Miami  department .

Cause 2 – Drum Roller

Many dryers have two drum support rollers on the back of the drum, while some have two additional rollers on the front. When they become damaged, the dryer will often make a very loud noise. Examine the rollers to see if they are damaged. If even one of the rollers is damaged, then you should replace them all just in case. This is a high porcent cause if Dryer Makes Noise use for fix Dryer repair  Miami  department .

Cause 3 – Drum Roller Axle

Many dryers have two drum support rollers on the back of the drum, while some have two additional rollers on the front. Drum rollers and axles can become damaged with regular use. When they are damaged, the dryer will make a very loud noise. Examine the drum roller axles to see if they are damaged. If they spin without difficulty or wobbling, then they are good. However, if they wobble and do not spin without difficulty, then you should replace them all just in case.

Cause 4 – Blower Wheel

The blower wheel draws in air from the dryer, pushing it out of the vent. Lint, socks, and other small items can escape the lint filter and become trapped in the blower wheel. If an object is trapped in the blower wheel, it can cause the dryer to make noise. Additionally, the blower wheel sleeve can sometimes wear out, which will cause the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. Remove the dryer vent and determine the degree of air flow, to see if the blower wheel is functioning well. If air flow is not good, then check the wheel for obstructions. If there are no obstructions, attempt to spin the wheel by hand and if it wobbles, then you must replace it.

Cause 5 – Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the back side of the dryer drum. The drum bearing can become worn out with time. If it becomes worn out, then the dryer will make loud noises. To see if the drum bearing is causing the problem, take off the dryer belt and try to turn the drum by hand and if it rotates without difficulty, then the drum bearing is probably good. However, if the drum makes noises when turning or does not turn without difficulty, inspect the drum bearing and replace it if need be.

Cause 6 – Drum Support Roller and Axle

Many dryers have two drum support rollers on the back of the drum, while some have two additional rollers on the front. Drum rollers and axles can become damaged with regular use. When they are damaged, the dryer will make a very loud noise. Examine the drum roller axles to see if they are damaged. If they spin without difficulty or wobbling, then they are good. However, if they wobble and do not spin without difficulty, then you should replace them all just in case.

Cause 7 – Drum Support Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. Over time, the drum bearing wears out. If the drum bearing is worn out, the dryer may make noise. To determine if the drum bearing has become damaged, take off the dryer belt and attempt to turn the drum by hand. If the drum rotates freely, it is unlikely that the drum bearing is worn out. If the drum makes squealing or grinding sounds when turned and/or is hard to turn, replace the drum bearing.

Cause 8 – Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The drum glides (also called slides) might be worn out. The drum glides are small plastic pieces that support the front of the dryer drum. As the drum rotates, it slides on these plastic pieces. Over time, the drum glides wear out. If the drum glides are worn out, the dryer will make noise. To determine if the drum glides are worn out, inspect them for wear. If one or more glides are worn out, replace all of the glides as a set.

Cause 9 – Idler Pulley

Examine the idler pulley to see if it is damaged or torn. If it is damaged or torn, then you should replace the drive belt as well as the idler pulley.

Cause 10 – Idler Assembly

Examine the idler assembly to see if it is damaged. If it is damaged, then you should replace the drive belt as well as the idler assembly.

Cause 11 – Drive Motor

It is possible that the drive motor bearing is worn out. This is, however, uncommon. Check all of the more commonly defective parts before you decide to get a new motor. If all other parts are working as they should be, then you must replace the drive motor. This is the lower cause if Dryer Makes Noise use for fix Dryer repair  Miami  department .

13 thoughts on “Dryer Makes Noise

  1. There is a lot of reason for the dryer to make noise, but the first and more important is the customer and when I say that I mean by the time people get a brand new dryer machine they should check the state of the device before buy it, most people don´t do that and because of that, probably they haven´t used the dryer machine for the first time and it already is broken or damaged, as a result of handling or bad manufacturing, falls, and many other causes, the customer doesn´t even realize until the dryer machine is turn it on. So once you had already checked your product, the next thing you need to do in order to maintain your device fully optimized is to use it as it is explained in the manual if you do that probably you are going to have a fully working dryer machine for a long time without having any problems. So having said that let´s review what are the main factors for the dryer to make noise: dryer makes noise when the drive belt is damaged or torn, it is recommended to carefully examine the drive belt often because this is the main cause if dryer makes noise; the drum roller damaged  can be another cause, check it and if that is the problem, replaced it; the drum roller axle is also a probable cause if the dryer makes noise, the regular use of the dryer can sometimes become the axle damaged and as a result the drum rollers wobble or have difficulties to spin; the blower wheel can sometimes be blocked by small objects that scape the lint filter, so check it if dryer makes noise, besides the blower wheel sleeve can sometimes wear out, which might cause the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft, it is advised to remove the dryer vent and determine the degree of air flow, to check the well-functioning of the blower wheel. Drum support bearing, drum glides, idler pulley, idler assembly, and unlikely the drive motor are other parts to check if the dryer makes noise. The dryer machine is a useful tool in the housekeeping, so it is very common and there are many brands and designs for this devices, they all have simple steps for using them. It is important to stand out the danger of this or any other electric device represents for children. It has an automatic functioning and it warns you when the drying process is finished. Dryer machine has low electric consumption and does not affect the environment. It is a great invention.

     
  2. If your dryer machine makes noise don´t panic, but take action.

    There are different reasons that could cause a dryer machine to make noise. Detailed below you will find the usual ones and the action to be taken in each case.
    1) Drive belt. The most common cause is when the drive belt is torn or damaged. If so, the only solution is to replace it.
    2) Drum roller. Some dryers bring two support rollers on the back on the drum, while some have two additional ones on the front. Check everyone in your machine. Even if only one of them is damaged, all should be replaced.
    3) Drum roller axle. As indicated in point 2), the quantity of rollers depends on the type of dryer. Check all of them. They should spin without difficulty or wobbling, if not so, all of them should be replaced.
    4) Blower wheel (in charge of drawing in air from the dryer and pushing it out of the vent). There may be two reasons for noises: either small items are trapped there, or the blower wheel sleeve has worn out, making it wobble on the motor shaft. To check this, remove the dryer vent and verify the air flow. If it is not good, check for obstructions. If it is not the case, spin the wheel by hand and if wobbles, it must be replaced.
    5) Drum Bearing (supporting the back side of the dryer drum). Take of the dryer belt and turn the drum by hand. If it makes noises or is difficult turn, probably the drum bearing needs replacement.
    6) Drum support roller and axle. Considering the quantity of support rollers of your machine, try to spin each drum roller axle, if they wobble or spin with difficulty, all of them must be replaced.
    7) Drum support bearing (supporting the rear of the dryer drum). Take off the dryer belt and try to turn the drum by hand. If it makes noises or is hard to turn, the drum bearing should be replaced.
    8) Drum slide, glide, or pad (small pieces that support the front of the dryer drum). Inspect one by one. In case one of them is worn out, all should be replaced.
    9) Idler pulley. In case of damage, both (drive belt and idler pulley) must be replaced.
    10) Idler assembly. If damaged, replace drive belt and idler assembly.
    11) Drive motor. Check first all the items mentioned above to look for defective parts. If you verify that they are all fine, then the problem is the drive motor and it should be replaced.

     
  3. For me it was just an interesting experience to read this article, because despite I don’t have any technical knowledge about a dryermachine, it was so easy for me to understand not only the most common causes of noise in my dryer, but also which ones are the most important parts, which ones are able to be damaged, how many of them are in my dryer (I had no idea there’re were drum rollers with axles, evenmore that some dryers have two extra on the front!) and in some way I could figure out how they work.

    Another interesting thing is that most of the owners (like me), don’t have any idea of how our dryermachine is composed or even how it woks and this information is useful to those ones that (like me, again) want to fix sometimes the problem by myself or simply want to have more useful information about my product.

    At the end of all, now I feel more informated about those damageable parts and (something that is simply charmig about all this info is that) all this is organized according to the most common cause to the least likely to occur. Finally, one could add, as I did, that this info was written by someone conscious that looked for not only promoting his service as a technician, but also helping those scared customers that well could have thought: “What is that infernal noise, coming through this hell-made dryer!? Oh, gosh, I have no idea what’s going on and I feel I’m near to dye! I swear it is complicated and expensive! But wait! I’m gonna search for some info in this marvelous appliance service webpage…” 😉

     
  4. Worried about the strange noises of your dryer? Don´t worry, together we will find a solution!!!
    Before this dilemma, the first thing you should do is look for the cause for which your dryer might be making noise, and here we present some criteria of experts in the field that can help you.
    The fact is that many people do not know about some of the most common dilemmas that can occur, and how to solve them in the most feasible way. We want to give you, the best criteria so that you are able to find the problem that your dryer might have.
    The first thing you should know, is that there are complicated terms to refer to the parts of a dryer, but easy to understand.
    Words like drive belt (the long thin belt that is wrapped around the dryer); Drum rollers,(the two that have dryer), blower wheel,( the one that comes in contact with clothing lint); the drum bearin; are little known, that’s why we explain its operation.
    Most of these components can be damaged over time and use, in addition to contact with the lint of the clothes, you should check them and if they are damaged, you should replace them.
    For example, the drum bearing that holds the back of the dryer drum, over time, the drum bearing wears out. If it makes chirping or grinding sounds when turning or is difficult to turn, replace the drum bearing.
    You must also check the idler pulley to see if it is damaged or broken, then you must replace the drive belt and the idler pulley or perhaps the guide wheel assembly may be damaged, if so, then you must replace the drive belt and the guide wheel assembly.
    The bearing of the drive motor may also be worn. This is, however, uncommon. If all other parts work as they should, then you must replace the drive motor.
    As you can see, once the meaning of the components of the dryer is known, it is not so difficult to find the causes of the noise and thus, know how to proceed. I hope that this article has been to your liking and also, has clarified all your doubts.

     
  5. I have no idea that a website for this kind of trouble exists. I did not know that a dryer can make noise for so many conditions. Last night my dryer machine died, and I could not solved the problem because I don’t know how to repair a dryer, but I´m going to learn because I got the tools know. The most shocking part was that it can be broke for 11 reasons or maybe more that does not show up here. I remember that 2 days ago was raining a lot and a lightning bolt hit near my house, so I think is the drive motor, because after that when I turned it on, its starts drying but then starts the noise, later stops and shut down by itself. But what can I say, I´m not an expert, so the first thing I´m doing is make an appointment, so these people who really have knowledge, come check my dryer, and see if I ´m wrong. Must say, that the person who created this site is saving my and other peoples life, If you are so good as you said, I will recommend your page.

     
  6. Parts of the dryer can become damaged with regular use, this can cause noises. The failing part must be replaced and it’s recommended to do an overhaul.
    Start checking the drive belt. If it’s not the case, take it off and try to turn the drum by hand. If it makes noises, inspect the drum bearing. Then check the glides and the rollers that support the front of the dryer drum. Remove the dryer vent and determine the air flow. If it’s not good, then check for obstructions and spin the wheel by hand and see if it wobbles. After that examine the idlers.
    If all other parts are working as they should be, then you must check the motor.
