Why Is Your Samsung Dryer Making Buzzing Noise While Running?

It’s not often that a buzzing noise means a malfunction. Sometimes the noise is pretty normal, so you should be able to differentiate a normal buzz from an abnormal one.

For example, it’s normal for a Samsung dryer to make a low buzzing sound when the blower or the drain pump is running. Moreover, you can expect a similar sound when the compressor runs, or the fans spin.

However, if the noise won’t stop or is perhaps too loud, then that could indicate a problem, and it could be due to one of these reasons:

1. Unstable Dryer

Your Samsung dryer will likely make some noise while spinning if it’s unstable. That could happen because its feet are not well-leveled or are loose.

It could also be that the dryer is resting on an uneven surface. It could produce anything from a buzzing sound to a vibration in such a case.


Position your Samsung dryer on an even surface. Ensure all the feet are touching the ground. If they aren’t, adjust and level them accordingly.

2. Obstructed Blower

While you expect the blower to make a buzzing sound when blowing, it shouldn’t be too loud but should be brief. However, if the buzz is deafening and prolonged, it could point to an obstruction around the blower.

The blower is mainly obstructed by excess lint accumulation, but it could also happen due to socks or any other clothing piece.


Disassemble your dryer to examine the blower. If anything is obstructing it, remove it. That may also mean cleaning around the blower to eliminate lint clogging.

3. Damaged Idler Pulley

The idler pulley adds the needed drive belt tension to enable the belt to turn the drum. If damaged, the drive belt may slip off and stop the drum from running.

In some cases, however, a damaged idler pulley becomes noisy. While it doesn’t stop the dryer from running, it makes a disturbing buzzing or sometimes squealing noise, which needs immediate address.


Check if the dryer belt is falling off from the idler pulley. If yes, inspect the idler pulley for damage and replace it.

4. Motor Fault

Your Samsung dryer will only run properly if the motor works fine. If the engine is faulty, expect it to stop or make some noise while running. And in some cases, the noise could be a loud buzz.


Inspect the motor for possible damage or wear and replace it.

5. Worn-Out Drum-Support Feature

Lastly, your Samsung dryer might buzz because the drum won’t spin correctly. That’s likely to happen if one of its supportive features is worn out – something that happens over time.

The said feature could be any of these:

  • Drum slides or glides – The drum glides are plastic pieces that support the front end of the drum. Due to constant friction, they wear out over time and become noisy, sometimes producing a buzzing sound.

  • Drum bearings – While the drum slides support the drum at the front, the drum bearings support it at the rear end. They, like the glides, also wear out. And when they do, they become loud.

  • Drum rollers – The Samsung dryer has two or more rollers on the drum’s rear end to support it, just like the drum bearings. Like the above drum-support features, they wear out over time and become noisy when they do.


Inspect the drum slides, bearings, and rollers for wear and replace them if worn out.
