Dryer running too hot? Check these things first!
- This complaint is sometimes caused by thermostat problems, but in an electric dryer, it may be caused by poor airflow. Check the dryer vent and exhaust.
- A vast majority of these complaints stem from drum supports that have worn out. It usually sounds like a loud, low-pitched
rumbling sound that slowly gets worse over a period of several months or even years. This is a very common complaint in Whirlpool
or Kenmore brand dryers about 7 to 15 years old. See the chapter about your brand for specifics about replacing
the drum support rollers.
You may get a rumbling noise if a belt tensioner pulley seizes up or the tensioner spring breaks.
A regular clack-clack sound as the dryer drum is turning may be coins stuck inside the removable plastic dryer vanes. This can happen in Whirlpool or Kenmore dryers, as well as some other brands, though it is infrequent. To solve the problem, open the top of ther dryer as described in the Whirlpool section, then remove the plastic vane on the inside of the dryer drum by removing the screws on the outside of the dryer drum that hold it in place.
In some models, notably Maytag and Frigidaire machines, things can get by the lint screen (like pencils and pens) and get stuck in the blower wheel. Again, it’s a loud grinding sound, as if you were sticking something into a moving blower fan. See the section about your brand for details about how to get to the blower in your machine.
