Yes, it could be as simple as that. If you put too many clothes in your dryer at once the drum will have too much weight on it which causes an upset to the balancing system. This can make a loud vibrating noise.
To find out if this is the problem, next time your dryer is vibrating, turn it off and remove some of the items of clothing. If the vibrations stop when you put the dryer back on then there were simply too many clothes in it. As a general rule of thumb, only put a load on that fills the drum three-quarters of the way up.
The part of your dryer that pushes hot air into the machine is known as the blower wheel. Overtime fibers from your clothes can cause the wheel to become congested with lint that needs to be cleaned off.
You can find the blower wheel underneath the top cover of your dryer close to the dryer’s heater. Use a soft cloth to gently remove any debris so that your dryer runs vibration-free.
