More than likely you have a drum retainer bearing going out. This is a mechanism that is comprised of two parts. On the interior of the back panel of the dryer there is a small mechanism that looks like a C on it back. This is where the bearing attached to the center of the rear of the drum slips into to keep the drum level. I have found that the portion attached to the dryer wall usually is at fault in these cases. I am noy familiar with the exact make up of your model but a diagram for the model is easily found online.
Hope this helps you out.

Ge frontloader dryer is squeeking incessantly, high pitch squeek driving us all crazy. by manually turning the drum i can isolate the squeek, but cannot see anything wrong. does it need to be taken...


There is a teflon bearing that holds the back of the drum you will need to replace. To get to it remove the top cover, take off the control panel, remove the front cover, take off the belt, then take the drum out, ususlly by lifting it up as you pull it foward. While have it all apart I would reccomend replacing the teflon glides at the front that the drum rides on.

My ge model #dhdsr46ee1ww dryer squeeks terribly. I understand this is likely the ''sliders''. Should I replace all 4 and do you think this will solve my problem. I was told these are actually placed on...


Yes replace all 4 of them. Check to make sure your exhaust is clear to the outside. If the dryer cannot expel the lint then you will always have this build up. Exhaust is the most important thing for a dryer.

Ge dryer squeeking


HI,

For a pictorial troubleshooting please open the link:

http://www.applianceaid.com/my_own_dryer.html

You will be looking at the front glides that the drum rides on, the glides are probably gone and the drum is rubbing on the plastic glide holder....if it is damaged will need to replace the front drum bearing/glide holder and all of the glides, usually about 4 of them.

If it is the drum front glides the noise will be from the front area, right behind the front panel at the top. If the noise is from the center rear of the dryer your drum bearing is gone, need to replace this also if you have to take this dryer apart..

Thanks

GE Profile dryer Model# DPSQ475ET4WW


You posted under a DPGT705EC and then a DPSQ475ET4WW, so I am going to guess you have the later one. If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, use a putty knife to push in on the 2 clips about two inches in from the sides at the seam where the front panel meet the dryer top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side. You may have to contact GE to obtain an owner's manual (but there is nothing in them about how to service the dryer, just installation and settings, etc.) Parts can be obtained from just about any appliance service company or appliance retailer which does service in your area.

If your dryer squeeks just a short squeek just as you start it thats not a big problem If the noise is there all the way through the cycle it could be the drum rollers locatedat back wall of dryer ,the drum rides on 2 of these they could be worn if its a short sqeek could be a slightly worn belt . thanks for the question The appliance doc

Ge electric dryer


most likely source of sqeak fornt front glides or rear bearing, the front glides can be seen be removing the front panel, 4 plastic strips the tub rests on and spins across, they will look worn or even missing if thats the casse( they simply twist on) as far as the rear bearing ,,a.k.a. "top hat" , for it looks liek a top hat, the drum is simply pulled foward and out of rear post and the bearing can be reinstalled without even removeing the belt form the pulley
