Normal Operating Sounds
You may or may not hear the following sounds from your new
A. WATER VALVE (Steam models only.) The flow of water is
controlled by electric solenoids. During operation there may
be a clicking sound as the valve opens and closes to control
the water flow.
ROLLERS The dryer drum is supported by a
set of suspension rollers. At times there may be a thumping
or rolling sound when the dryer starts. This may happen if
the dryer has not been in use for a period of time, or after a
heavy load has remained in the dryer drum for an extended
period, creating a temporary fiat spot on the edge of the
roller. The noise should dissipate as the dryer operates and
the fiat spots smooth out.
C. AIR FLOW SYSTEM Your dryer is equipped with a high
volume air handling system. In some installations there may
be some sounds associated with air movement throughout
the dryer, including the air duct, blower, and exhaust system.
This is normal and can vary with load size and type.
D. GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The flow of gas is controlled
by electric solenoids. During operation there may be a clicking
sound as the valve opens and closes to control the gas flow.
E. GAS BURNER (Gas models only.) When the burner is
operating, there may be sounds generated as the air flow
mixes with the gas flame. This noise is normal and will only
occur when the gas is ignited in the combustion tube.

squeaking, grinding, rubbing or other unusual
noises. This could be a sign of mechanical
