The clothes dryer is a very convenient appliance to have in your home. You will have to wait for clothes to dry much longer without it. Usually, Samsung dryers are very quiet. Unfortunately, like with any other appliance malfunctioning can happen. There are many reasons that could lead your dryer to make strange loud noises.
If your Samsung dryer is making thumping noise which occurs while the dryer is spinning, it is most likely caused by some hard objects such as zippers, snaps, buttons, coins inside dryer drum. It is recommended to turn items out before drying.
If your Samsung dryer is making rattling noise, verify it is level using a carpenter’s level. If it is unleveled, adjust the dryer’s feet. Also, make sure the dryer is standing on a solid, secure floor and nothing is leaning against it.
If the above tips do not resolve the problem and your Samsung dryer is still making a lot of noise, stop using the machine until it has been checked by a professional appliance repair technician. Continued use may cause wear of other parts, making the dryer repair more expensive. Feel free to give us a call or fill out the contact form to schedule a service appointment!
The drive belt is a long, narrow band, which is responsible for turning the drum while the drive motor is turning. Unfortunately, it can wear out over time. When the drive belt is stretched, it can cause the dryer to make a loud banging noise. You can inspect the drive belt for signs of wear. If the drive belt is frayed, it should be replaced.
The drum rollers support the dryer drum in place as it turns. Most Samsung dryers have 2 support rollers on the rear of the drum, and only some of them have 2 more on the front of the drum. When the drum rollers are worn out, they can cause the dryer to make a loud squealing noise. You can inspect the drum rollers for signs of wear out. Remove the belt from the dryer and try to turn the drum by hand. If the rollers do not spin freely or wobble, they should be replaced.
The blower wheel is used to draw the air from the heating chamber, through the drum and out the exhaust vent. It is usually made of plastic and can wear out over time. If the blower wheel becomes loose, it can cause the dryer to make a loud roaring noise. You can inspect the blower wheel housing for any debris that might be interfering with the movement of the wheel. If the blower wheel is worn, it should be replaced.
The drum bearing supports the rear of the drum. It is usually located at the back of the dryer drum. Like any parts, the drum bearing wears out over time. When it is worn out, the dryer makes a scraping or squeaking noise. Do not lubricate the bearing! It may attract lint and speed up the wearing process. If the drum bearing is worn out, it should be replaced.
The idler pulley provides tension on the drum belt not allowing it to fall off. It is located at the bottom of the dryer near to the drive motor. When the idler pulley is bad, dryer makes a squealing or a roaring noise. If the pulley does not roll freely when the belt is removed, it should be replaced.
