Electric dryer model DLEX3001W...

Electric dryer model DLEX3001W is making a loud rumbling noise. I am not sure if tub is powered by belt or a roller of some type. I am a do it youselfer so I would like a schematic of the machine if possible . If not some advice other than call repairman would be appreciated

Contractor's Assistant: Are all the cables at the back of your DLEX3001W connected tightly to the right sockets?

Do you mean electrical cables. I have not opened back of unit because it looks to be welded if you are reffering to other cables

Contractor's Assistant: The TV Technician will be able to walk you through that. What type of input cables are you using: HDMI, RCA (red, yellow, and white cables), S-Video, or something else?

I am talking about an electric clothes dryer and the tab I am on says LG appliances

Hi, thanks for your question. I'm sorry about the confusion with your category I'm Gavin and I'll help you with your dryer fault. Your most likely fault if it rumbles as it turns is the fan on the motor. They can break or become loose and cause a noise. The fan is position K510 on the diagram that I am going to send to you. The LG part number for the fan in case you need to order it is 5835EL1002A.

Also check parts K250 (4581EL2002A) and K251 (4581EL3001A) they are support rollers for the drum LG part numbers in brackets.

Let me know if there is anything else you need.

I really appreciate your rating. Please remember to click on the stars to rate my answer
