A:

If an electric dryer will run then the thermal fuse is okay. The not heating problem can be caused by the timer, control thermostat, hi-limit thermostat element or even the motor switch. You should start by checking the two circuit breakers supplying power to the dryer. One breaker can trip leaving the dryer 120 volts to run the motor but not have 240 volts to power the heating element. The thermostats and thermal cut-off are located behind the rear panel. The image below will help you access these parts to check. Remember to unplug the dryer first. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

A:

Since I do not have a description of the noise I will explain the types of dryers. Some dryer drums rotate on a set of support rollers. Other models only use a pair of support rollers at the rear and uses a glide/felt supporting the front. There is some dryers that do not use any support rollers and use glides and a shaft and bearing at the rear. All dryers use a blower wheel to circulate the air.

Here are a few possible causes of noise :

  • Worn out drum support shaft and bearing
  • Worn support rollers or roller shaft
  • Worn drum slides or felt
  • Object stuck between the felt drum seal and drum
  • Blower wheel scrapping the blower housing
  • Could be a vibrating metal panel
  • Worn out motor or idler pulley
  • Frayed drive belt

For further assistance, please respond with more detail.
