Kenmore Dryer 86663100 noisy
« on: May 09, 2013, 12:38:23 PM »
I just bought a house and it has a Kenmore Dryer model # 86663100. It is very noisy when it runs.  Any idea  why that may be and how to fix it? Thank you.

It's 110.86663100. Usually it's a drum roller, 349241T, or idler pulley, 691366. You might consider getting the maintenance kit, 4392065, which includes the idler, rollers and belt.

The model is 110.  Thank you very much for your guidance.  Is there already some instruction on this site on how to check what is wrong that causes the noise and how to make the replacement?  It would be very helpful if you can take me there. Thank you again!

As for checking it you will need to open up the dryer and take a look at the support rollers. Give them a spin with your hand and you should be able to tell if they are bad or not.

I opened and checked the dryer.  The video is very helpful and I had no problem opening it. The idler and roller seems ok. Frankly I don't know how to tell if they are bad or not.  The idler looks normal.  I spin the roller and it works.  The drum belt looks old and has a lot of crack on the inner side.

There is a cushion around the round front opening that looks old and its thickness is not even. The upper part of the cushion (about half, i.e. the upper part, of the circle) is almost more than twice thicker than the lower part of the cushion.

What do you think is the problem for the noise?  Is it the belt or the cushion?

Thank you.

You could have something in the blower wheel. We're the lint filter is. Sometimes things fall down there when filter is out.

Thank you.  I'll check that as well. But you don't think it is the cracked bell or the cushion that may be the problem?

It is very noisy when it runs.

Could you describe the noise for us?
Is it a thumping noise, rattle or grinding noise?

Could you post a video of it on youtube so we could hear the noise it's making?

If the drum support rollers or belt idler are bad they would be noisy when you spin them by hand and/or have a lot of play in them on the shaft.

If a chunk of the belt is missing it may make a thumping noise, but I don't see to many belts that do that.

If the felt seal is bad enough is can cause a lot of noise because the metal drum will be rubbing on the metal of the dryer.

It sounds like a training is running. I will check the blower wheel. I don't think it is metal against metal though.
