- If your dryer makes too much noise, the issue is possibly related to bearings, seals or worn belts. The latter proves to be a huge problem. To check the belt, you must open up your dryer’s cabinet. If the belt looks worn-out, you should replace it ASAP. You should also carefully inspect the pulley wheel, they also do not have much to offer in the durability department.
