Default Dryer just got louder
Model Number: Dnsr473ev0ww   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dryer just started being really loud the other day. I am not hearing a "ca-thunk ca-thunk" which would make me think that there is a balance problem or anything. It is just louder. Drum still rotates, air moves, and the heat coils work.

I followed the steps at http://www.applianceaid.com/how-to-t...t-ge-dryer.php and took things apart. I cleaned out all the lint that had gotten in the motor area. I also removed the drum and turned the dryer on. It ran quiet. I then assembled everything, and it was still loud.

Any ideas why it is so loud now? Is the motor going out? Is there a bearing or something that might be causing this loudness?

Thanks

Well, that didn't fix it. In hindsight, I should have known it wouldn't fix it as the noise isn't a squeal or squeak. It is just louder in general. So, I assume that means it's the motor?

I'm a general troubleshooter/handyman, not much into appliance repair. With that said... I would use something like a stethoscope to narrow down the source of the noise. Even a stick against something and the other end next to your ear can tell you a lot. If it's a rubbing noise then it may be something to do with the drum. I've found dryer belts rubbing against idler brackets that made a heck of a noise. One of the worst noises I found in a dryer was caused by a screw that fell out of my pocket while my pants were being dried. It was lodged between the drum and wall. Isolating the area then finding the source is my usual approach to funky noises.

Hi all. I should have replied sooner, but replacing the motor indeed made it quieter.
