Question and Answers

Q:

Why after cleaning out the dryer it will not heat and the drum makes a lot of noise when running?

A:

You did not indicate what you removed in order to clean out the dryer. If it was running normally before you cleaned it, most likely you knocked a wire off the heater circuit. Check the thermostat connections located on the front of the blower housing. Check the wire connections on the motor too. Have you checked to see if one of the two house circuit breakers has tripped?

The noise would be difficult for me to say where it is emitting from or the cause. If you had removed the front panel the drum glides may not be in the proper position.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer or resubmit your question with additional details for further assistance.
