Common Causes of Noise in an Electrolux Dryer

If your Electrolux electric dryer is making a loud noise, you'll want to take steps to identify and correct the problem as soon as possible. Learn what causes dryer noise, how to diagnose the issue, and what kind of repairs you may need to make in order to get your dryer running smoothly again.

  • Loose Screeching or Squeaking

    Dryers can sometimes make a screeching sound if components inside the machine move and rub up against one another. Loose screws and nuts, a defective rear drum support roller bearing, worn front glides, or an unlubricated idler pulley can all cause these types of noises. Check these components to ensure they are all securely installed and/or properly lubricated to reduce or eliminate the noise.

    Additionally, if the dryer is making a high-pitched squeaking sound, it could be a sign of an issue with the drum. Friction can occur between the drum and the front bulkhead if too much laundry is dried in one cycle or if high heat is used too often, resulting in worn drum seals. Make sure to check for cracks on all drum seals for any visually detectable problems that may need repair.

  • Unusual thumping Sounds

    Unusual thumping Sounds

    One of the more common causes of noise in an Electrolux dryer is a thumping sound. This could be caused by a defective belt tensioner. The belt tensioner applies pressure to the dryer belt, allowing it to turn freely without slack. If this part is damaged or worn out it may produce a thumping sound when the drum rotates. Inspect the tensioner and replace the part if needed.

    Another potential cause of a thumping sound in your Electrolux dryer is the blower wheel becoming unbalanced. The blower wheel helps exhaust air that circulates through the dryer drum, and can become unbalanced with age and wear. To check if this is the issue, shut off power to the dryer and inspect the blower wheel for any signs of separation or damage. If any damage is present, replace the part as needed.

    Also, make sure to check for loose screws or bolts that could be rattling and causing the thumping noise. The screws and bolts used in your dryer are responsible for keeping the motor and other components in place. If any are loose, tighten them with an appropriate screwdriver or wrench. Additionally, check the belt that is located at back of the dryer's drum. If it appears overly stretched or worn out, replace it to return your dryer to normal function.

  • Rattling Noises When Tumbling

    Rattling noises when tumbling can indicate several possible issues. It could be caused by worn drum seals, a worn or broken bellows, or loose parts inside the dryer. Inspect these components of the dryer to ensure they are in proper working order and replace any damaged or broken parts to resolve the issue.

    If your dryer is making rattling noises when tumbling, start by inspecting the drum seals for any tears or rips. If there is damage to the seals, they should be replaced. You should also check the bellows, which are the flexible rubber components that keep noise levels down while allowing air to flow through the machine. If these are worn or broken, they will need to be replaced. Lastly, make sure that there is nothing loose inside of the dryer. Be sure to inspect every component and tighten any screws or fasteners that have come loose over time. By following these simple steps you can easily troubleshoot and resolve rattling noises when tumbling from your Electrolux dryer.

  • Drum Roll Noise from the Belt Slipping Off its Track

    If you hear a drum roll noise coming from your Electrolux dryer it may be because the belt has slipped off its track or is not tensioned properly. This can cause noise fluctuations as the belt runs around the drum pulley. Check that the belt is properly routed and tensioned, and replace it if needed.

    If there is nothing visibly wrong with the belt and it is properly tensioned, then there may be another issue causing this drum roll noise. It could be that the idler pulley is worn or not seated in its place correctly. Disconnect your dryer from the power supply and inspect the idler pulley for any damage or debris preventing it from seating correctly. If okay, re-tension the belt to lessen noise variation then reconnect your dryer to power supply and resume use. If issues persist after following these steps please contact a qualified appliance repair technician for assistance.

  • Buzzing Sound from Blocked Vents

    A buzzing sound may come from your Electrolux dryer if the exhaust vent or the lint filter is blocked. Blocked vents can be caused by a build up of lint and other debris, which restricts air flow. The best way to clear these blockages is to manually vacuum out the vent or replace the clogged lint filter with a new one.

    If you've cleared the lint filter and vents, but the sound persits, there may be other causes. Potential issues can include a faulty bearing or motor. If this is the case, it's best to contact a qualified technician or appliance repair professional who can identify and fix the issue. Depending on the severity of the damage, they may recommend replacing the part instead of attempting a repair.

    But it may also be a much more straightforward issue. If your Electrolux dryer is making an unusual buzzing sound, chances are that lint or debris has become lodged in the vent line, leading to a blockage. To fix this, first unplug your dryer and use the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner to clean out the lint filter and both interior and exterior vents. If the objects feel too large for a vacuum, you may need to remove the external vent cover and try using tweezers to retrieve anything stuck inside. Once done, check for signs of wear or cracks before closing off the vent cover and plugging your appliance back in.
