You could have two problems. 1...Broken Belt, no allowing the drum to turn 2...Flat spots on your drum rollers are making your noise ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1....http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG If you hear a loud bang while your dryer is working, and you notice that thedrum has stopped turning, chances are the drivebelt has snapped. Fortunately, replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward operation that can be handled with a few simple tools. First, unplug the dryer. Lift the lint-screen cover and pull out the lint screen If your dryer has a lint screen on the inside of the door, skip this step. Then remove the two screws that are under the cover. To unlatch the dryer top,insert a thin-blade putty knife between the top and front panel, about 2 1/2 in. in from one corner. Push in on the knife to release the locking clip, lift the corner, then release the clip on the other side. Swing the topup and lean it against the wall. Next, move to the lower toe panel. Slip the putty knife between the lower panel and the door panel at one side and twist the knife to release the clip Then release the opposite clip and lift the panel up and off the hinge springs. To support the dryer drum while the belt is being replaced, place scrap woodunder the front of the drum. Loosen the two screws at each side of the bottom of the front panel.Move to the top of the panel and remove the screws from the inside of the cabinet that hold the front panel to the sides. Slide the old belt off the drum.------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Installing the belt Lean the front panel out slightly and allow the drum to rest on the scrap wood support. Drop the new dryer belt between the front panel and the drum, and loop it over the drum. Then, lift the drum slightly while pushing the front panel back into position. Replace the screws at the top inside of the front panel, tighten the lower panel screws and remove the scrap wood from under the drum. Check to make sure thatthe rear drum seal fits properly over the lip on the rear bulkhead. Position the new belt where the old belt was, with the grooved side of the beltfacing down. Now, move to the motor area and pull out the old belt. To route the new beltaround the idler and drive pulley, first pass the entire belt, doubled up, under the idler pulley. Then, push the idler belt toward the motor, slip thebelt around the motor pulley and release the tension on the idler pulley. Open the dryer door and rotate the drum counterclockwise a few times to makesure the belt is tracking properly. Lower the top and press down at each corner to engage the clips. Lift the lint-screen cover, replace the two screwsand reinstall the lint screen. Finally, secure the lower front panel and turnon the dryer for a test. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2...ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley. If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probablyonly need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. Please rate me
