20 yr old electric dryer makes a rhythmic thumping noise.
Answer Derek, Besides checking and/or replacing the drum rollers (there are two 2 ) 12001541 You will also want to check and make sure theres nothing stuck in or to the drum seals, check the drum and front drum glides for excessive wear.allowing the seam in the drum to make a noise on the drum glides.
did i order the wrong drum support rollers the rear of the drum is scraping metal on metal.
Answer Hello John,
You will want to check to make sure that the rear seal is seated properly and that it sits between rear bulkhead and tumbler.
Where on the dryer do you find the dryer roller. I've got mine open but don't see it.
Answer Hello Donna,
The drum rollers are directly under the drum, supporting it and the drum turns on it. If you had listed a model number, we could have gone into much better detail.
There is a clicking sound coming from back when running.
Answer Hello Bill,
The clicking sound would come from either the worn felt 314820 or bad rollers 12001541.
My maytag dryer is making a constant low-rumbling sound when it runs. What parts would I need to fix this? Thanks in advance.
Answer Brian, Once you remove the front panel and front bulkhead, Check the blower wheel Y303836, make sure it is "tight" on the motor shaft, there should be no "wiggle room". If the wheel is OK, remove the drum and check the rear rollers and shafts 12001541,6-3129480.
My dryer is making a loud intermittent squeaking noise. I've replaced the front drum bushings. What else could it be?
Answer Hello Ted,
You need to check the drum rollers and the idler pulley. These and the front drum bushings are all there is in there that could produce the noise unless a bushing is failing in the motor assembly.
