Go the "Sears Parts" on the internet, and tell them the model number of the machine you have, you will be shown several pictures of schematics for the different parts areas of the machine. Find the rollers and you are on the way to a fix. Nearly all rollers must be replaced when bad, the are not usually repairable. Be blessed.

Squealing noise on may tag 3000 series dryer at start of cycle


There are a few causes for this. One is the main bearing, video below to show repair.

Second is the drum rollers themselves, I use a heavyweight oil on the shaft and it cures it on mine for a couple years.

I have an Asko T761 dryer. While replacing the belt and rollers, the wires came out from their places at the top right of the inside of the unit. I have the wiring diagram but is virtually of no use to...


Hello,
If it is like just about all asko dryers all the wires are brown and the only way to tell where they go is look on end of wire at terminal and the wire will be marked with a number and the number is on the wiring diagram and shows where each number goes. All other manufactures uses a rainbow of colors but ASKO loves brown wires

When I turn my may tag dryer on it squeals. We tried lubricating the mechanics then the drum stops turning. We then degreased it, hand spun the drum and it resumed working.


Squeals will usually come from the rollers that hold the drum or the one that puts tension on the belt. Also, check the front of the drum where it meets the front of the dryer. There may be some teflon pads worn out. The rollers can be lubricated for a short term fix but should be replaced.

Dryer is very noisy during dyring cycle.Used to be so quiet you would have to check to see if it was running.


Your complaint is;"Dryer is very noisy during dyring cycle.Used to be so quiet you would have to check to see if it was running".
You have not provided a brand name or model number. I I can only offer information based on genric or common solutions. Below is a link that should prove helpful if you need additional information.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

Constant "thumping" sound when dryer is going


you can fix it by ordering a whirlpool roller kit but its no big deal the drum sits on rubber rollers when it just sits the rolers get flat spots on them like tires and makes the thumping sounds its just noisey but no big deal but they do make a kit with softer rollers

Clothes getting caught between Tub and wall inside dryer


there is uaually a rubber or composite gasket that fits inside the dryer drum with the front cover in place. the "rollers" as you call it is just pieces of felt glued to theexternal drum and front face and are the drum bearings. check appliance repair parts for the proper gasket and how to mount it to your front panel.
