Question:

When I put clothes in my dryer and turn it on, it is making a loud clunking noise like I have a pair of shoes inside. I’m also getting black marks on the clothes that I don’t think are coming from the washer. What could be the problem(s)?

Dale
Answer:

Hello Dale. We can address both your problems! The thumping sound is most commonly caused by a drum roller that is failing 12001541. A failing drum roller teamed with a worn seal WP33001807 is most likely the reason your clothes are getting marked. If the seal is worn it will cause the clothes to catch on the gap where the seal is located, this could snag them and create black marks. Good luck with this repair!

Question:

From what I read on your site it sounds like I need to replace my supports. The problem is a loud squeaking noise during cycle. Does that sound right? I don’t want to buy 2 of these without knowing for sure. What else would you recommend checking at the same time? My wife wants the noise gone.

Paul
Answer:

Hi Paul, thanks for getting in touch. You did find the right roller for your model, it is 12001541 and you will need two of them for this repair. We also recommend checking your felt seals to make sure they are sturdy and in place, and that your idler pulley is in a good working condition. These are all the most common reasons a dryer would be squeaky during cycle.

Question:

When should I replace the drum rollers, what should I be looking for? And will I need lubricant for the shaft? If so what do you recommend?

Kay
Answer:

Hi Kay, great question. If your rollers are already making noise during cycle they should be replaced, if not you should be looking for flat spots as a sign of wear. Also, you will not need to lubricate the shaft, it should all fit together without it. I hope this helps.

After 23 years the drier started squealing like a pig

1986 Maytag LDE712 Dryer

Boy when it squeaks, it very difficult to tell where that sound is coming from, when it all echoes inside the dryer. Before buying any parts I was able to identify the culprit by lifting up the drum just enough to be able to spin the drum support rollers with my fingers. When I did, one of them was still squeaking away. The other roller appeared to be okay, so just bought one roller. Not knowing what the condition of the roller shaft was I bought one of those too. For a few more dollars I decided to change out that sorry looking lint seal that I had.

I had never been in one of these things before and no instructions to do so, thus it was a learning experience. Unplug the drier and move it to a very roomy location for you to work on. Once you get the drier door removed and out of the way, you can now tackle removing the drier drum. Remove the four screws holding the front bezel type drum holding fixture. Once removed, the drum will be freed up for its removal. Reach in with one arm (at a time) to slide back the drum belt off the drum. Then reach into the drum and lift it up a tad then out of the drier opening. This it a good time to vacuum up all those years of dust and lint build up.

Using a C-Clip removal tool remove the C-clip, washer, roller and the second washer. My roller shaft may have been okay if it had just cleaned it up with an emery cloth, but I bought a new one and why take the chance (you won’t know until it is all back together). Now to remove the roller shaft was a little time consuming. I couldn’t get enough leverage to remove the attached nut on the rear of the bracket, with the limited space in the drier. Oh nothing is ever easy. I had to remove the four rear screws on the back of the drier to remove the main assembly as well as the 3 screws holding the drier heating elements assembly down. This allowed me to pull out all that mess out (actually it wasn’t all that bad) enough to get to that roller shaft nut. Once I replaced the roller shaft and nut, by using a cotton tip, I put a very light coat of Molybdenum grease on the roller shaft and in the inside of the roller. There were not any instructions to do this, but rather a personal judgment call (good, bad or indifferent, I don’t know). Then I installed the new washer, roller and 2nd new washer and reattached the C-clip. I also put Moly grease on the second roller assembly. Reversed all my assembly steps except for installing the front door, where I needed to replace the lint seal.

To get the “lint seal”, I needed to unscrew four screws holding in the lint trap assembly (unscrews from inside the drum, if you forgot to deal with this before putting everything back together). The lint assembly easily comes out of the dryer but you can’t get to the lint seal until you drill off the several plastic (rivet looking type) heads holding the metal to plastic assembly together. Once apart you can pull out the old lint seal and replace it. I used self tapping sheet metal screws (I think they were model # MT812, I had a bunch loose ones kicking around) to replace what I drill off. Those screws worked out perfectly. Reassembled every back and it’s working quietly once more.

It took some time and effort, but I sure saved me a lot of $$$ doing it all myself.

Dryer started squeaking loudly when running

I had previously removed the front cover to try to identify source of squeak. I suspected drum support roller, and found WD-40 on roller stopped squeak for a while, but it would return. I ordered replacement roller and shaft. To repair, I removed front cover, then front support piece holding tumbler, then pulled out the tumbler (after pulling off belt). I was able to remove shaft snap pin (after buying tool), then old drum support roller, and finally shaft with wrench. I screwed in new shaft, inserted new roller, and replaced all parts. Getting the belt back on in the right way was a little tricky. I would reach under tumbler with right hand and pull on tensioner with pinky while pushing belt around drive pulley with thumb. I first had belt running through the wrong path so it made a bad noise. I fixed that, then shortly it came off idler pulley when running. Finally I got it on, apparently correctly, as it now seems to work fine, and more smooth and quiet than I ever remember. You have to lean close to even tell its running. Very happy now!!

Made loud noise when tumbling "all loads"

We went to Lowe's to look at a new washer/dryer set. We told the sales lady what our dryer was doing, she said she had that problem before and told us it was probably the rollers had gone bad. The next morning, 5 a.m my wife couldn't sleep so she took the dryer front off, pulled out the tumbler and found the rollers, the lady was right . My wife already had your web site pulled up on the computer so I could look to see what parts I needed. We called to order our parts, we were told it would be 2-5 days before they would get here, they were here the NEXT DAY!!! That was awesome!! I put the new roller on, my wife put everything back together, she turned the dryer on and.... it was so quiet we weren't sure if it was on so I opened the door and held the button to watch it turning, peacefully. Thank you all and the sales lady at Lowe's for saving us $1200. We did our repair with your parts and only spent $85.00.

Loud squeaking noise when dryer was operating

This was a pretty easy repair. The idler wheel bearing was bad and I replaced the wheel, the two drum support rollers, idler arm and belt. The video for replacing the idler wheel was spot on for my model and made it easy to complete the job. My thanks to PartSelect for a great repair experience.

Dryer squeaks

I read all of the reviews and what people used to fix the problems. I ordered a drum support roller and a shaft. I didn't realize you needed two of each. After taking everything apart, I didn't have the tool to take off the retainer ring around the shaft. I pryed off the ring, and replaced the support roller. The second roller looked worse so I replaced it with the other used roller. It took forever to get the ring on with out the correct tool. I did get the rings on with a needle nose pliers, but it doesn't have much tension left. The dryer sounds great. It did take me some time to figure out how the tension worked for the drum band, but I eventually figured that out. Now I bought the tool for the ring retainers, another new drum support roller and shaft, and I plan on installing them all some day soon. The ring retainer took most of the time as it kept flying off with the washer. Don't start the project with out the proper tool to install the ring, unless you a lot of time on your hands.

Excessive noise when operating

Utilizing the online schematics, I disassembled the dryer, marked and disconnected all wires, and removed the drum. Once the drum was removed, I thoroughly cleaned the inside of the dryer and removed all lint accumulation from the heating element, motor, and blower fan areas. I replaced the front guides and drum support rollers/shafts, belt and idler pulley. I reassembled the dryer and it worked! Be sure to lay all the screws and parts in a logical sequence as you disassemble the dryer, it makes reassembly much easier.

Squeek coming from dryer during cycles

Unplug power to dryer!

First I removed the two screw holding the front door, and the screw on the other side, which hold the front panel in place. Then remove the next panel, which has the lint capture basket in it. Two screw in opposite corners hold this in place. After you remove these, the drum (part where the close go in) will drop and come out. Keep in mind, you will have to un-attach the belt from the motor. This is very easy, as its help in place by a tensioner pulley. Self explanatory on that one.
Next pull the drum, so you can get to the bearings. Use your snap-ring pliers to remove the snap rings and swap out the couplers. Follow the procedure in reverse. If you're mechanical, it should take about a hald an hour or so, but if you're not, your looking at an hour and a half.

When done, plug dryer back in and test tub rotation.

Good luck!

Squeel from drum support

just like the video on the website. It would have helped if the info included that the culprit was likely the worn shaft above the heater and not the roller itself. I replaced both rollers and the belt as a percaution, but expect I will have to replace that shaft soon. I will use the good roller from the other side that I replaced and just replace the worn shaft when that happens.

The dryer was making a very loud squeeking sound

The process was pretty methodical. This is a washer/dryer stack unit, and the dryer is on top. I removed the top 2 screws on the dryer front cover, and pulled it down, while being careful of the connecting wires that are attached. I also removed the lower front panel (it angles in at the base), and pulled that out. There are a few plates to remove (one steel and one pale green) and as I removed them, I had labels for the screws on a few pages to keep track of where each screw and plate went. Then, finally, I removed the screws that held the main tumbler in place. There are four. From that point, pulling the tumbler out is relatively easy, as long as you turn it as you pull it out, so the belt can slip off. The only real problem I had was the expanding washer that holds the drum roller support from slipping off. It has to be pulled apart so that it can be removed from the roller shaft, and when I did it, the piece snapped off, and fell into the inside of the dryer bottom, and I had to hunt for it. But once that was done, I put the new roller support on, and it was completed. I didn't need the other parts. It was the Drum support roller that had rusted.

Dryer had a high squeal

I removed the back plate on the lower right corner, unfastened the spring on the tension gear, removed the belt from the tension roller and motor pulley. Removed the front panel of the dryer, then removed the drum panel, which holds the drum into place and also the air flow. Removed the drum and belt. Using the snap ring pliers, removed the snap rings from each of the support drum rollers. Removed the rollers and replaced them with new ones, replaced snap rings, replaced drum which was easy along with the belt, replaced the drum panel, went to the back of the dryer and replace the belt on the motor pulley and tension roller, re hooked the spring. Returned to the front of the dryer and replaced the door switch kit. Overall it was very simple operation. The hardest part is to get the belt in the proper place.

Periodic metal on metal sounding squeel while running

3 times I simply lubricated the roller shaft which only bought me a few weeks of peace. The metal on metal shaft/roller simply wore out and needed
to be replaced. By now I was getting very good at
disassembling the dryer so installing the new parts was quick and easy. The real trick was using
the model number to get a full detailed break-down to order the correct parts. If you don't see the diagram, keep trying variations on the model number until you do.

Blower wheel was worn, belt was worn, drum support didn't turn freely

Unplugged dryer. Removed top, face and drum. Using snap ring pliers, I removed the old drum supports and installed the new ones. Next I removed the cover to the blower wheel housing. Then using snap ring pliers and regular pliers I removed the worn blower wheel and installed the new one by reverse steps. Lastly the belt. I put the belt around the drum , placed the drum in the dryer and had my son hold it steady as I threaded the belt around the motor and idler pulley. All that's left is to put the face and cover back. The repair was simple and the dryer is running like a champ. I would suggest having some snap rings handy as I had to replace them as well.
