Question Duet dryer sounds like air comprssor and vibrates
Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Just today, my Duet front loading dryer started making such a racket! It sounds like an air compressor filling up, vibrates something fierce (seems from all over), and is taking a longer than usual time to dry the clothes. The vibrations mainly seem like they are coming from the back but when you put pressure on the top is quiets down a little. Opened her up and cleaned her out, but not sure where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A model number may help others help you.

Check the motor mounts, inside the blower wheel and the rear support rollers,
Thumping is often a flat spot or a worn rear roller.
Also check the drum where the rollers ride.

Default Question

Is the drum supposed to be able to move back and forth? Or is it not supposed to move just turn?

There will be some slop back and forth but there should not be much.
