Remove the back cover that covers the lint trap. there is a fan blade back there and some foreign object is probably hitting the fan blade

Hi, Start the dryer and listen down in the lower front corner for the noise. This sounds to me like it could be the blower wheel loose on the front motor shaft.
Remove the 2 screws in the front panel and then remove the 4 screws holding the front bulkhead to the cabinet. You will be able to see the blower wheel and try to spin it by hand. If the blower spins free on the shaft, it will need replaced.
I hope this is helpfull to you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.

Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise then quits working.


Sounds like the motor's done. That thing is probably the start-run switch. Not worth trying to fix on an old motor. I've found dryer motors to be fairly generic, you should be able to find a replacement. I use Repairclinic.com when I can't get parts locally.

Gas dryer makes loud hum


Sounds like you may have a motor issue, they can get lint trapped inside, and it causes the motor to overheat, and eventually go out. You can remove the top, then the front, and see if thats the problem. Usually, once the motor starts making noise, its time to replace. Right now, the packings in the motor are cold, and once they heat up, they stop making noise, so it could last quite a while.

Crosley CDE8000W Dryer has electric burning smell and shut down


it is most likely the belt. the squealing noise is because the motor is turning, but the belt is not. a replacement belt is not too expensive and it is fairly easy to replace. if you need directions how to replace it, let me know
