If your dryer is making strange noises, then a failed dryer drum seal might be the cause. This seal can wear down over time as a result of frequent overloading, or through contact with foreign objects. It will eventually need to be replaced.

If your dryer won't heat up, then it could mean that the thermal fuse has failed. Some things can cause this to happen include blocked ventilation, clogged lint screens, or a consistently overloaded machine. If the thermal fuse is broken, it would need to be replaced.
