Ok this is a really broad question, Kenmore will squeal when a belt tensioner or motor bearing is out, a frigidaire or small kenmore with control panel above the door and serial number starting with x will squeal when the bearing is out on the drum or the motor. This is a general cover on dryer noise with a model like Kenmore series 80 I can give solutions ok?

Really Bad Squeeky Noise


It could be a squeal from the dryer belt. It could be from a belt that has gotten loose, like you hear on a car sometimes when it first starts up, but usually they don't get loose. They just break. Maybe something has gotten jammed between the dryer drum and the interior of the dryer making it hard for the belt to turn the drum and so it is squealing. Does the drum turn by hand without too much force and without squealing?

My dryer makes a squealing sound when running. I believe it's the belt on the tensioner pulley, but I have no idea how to get to the darn thing.


There is no easy way, but its more time consuming really. I'm not familiar with your particular dryer, but you''ll need to remove the top and front casing of your dryer and remove the drum to get to the pulley. Sometimes you can get to it via a compartment on the rear of the dryer as well. Also listen to make sure the squealing isn't coming from the drum bearings on the rear of the drum.

Really loud whirring/squealing noise


Yes, It is still safe but very annoying...
The source is probably the guide rollers for the drum or the belt tensioner pulley. To know for sure you will need to pull the dryer apart and turn it by hand slowly and see where the noise is coming from...

My dryer is making a really loud noise when the clothes are spinning in the dryer. There is a loud rumble and squealling noise.


The squealing noise coming from your dryer is caused by the front glides located on the top bearing, they act like a pad against the drum and when gone, will make an awful squealing. part number for the 4 glides that may be needed is WE3X87 this is a common problem as it is a wearable part. if you don`t replace these in time it will grind all the way through your top bearing and start to deteriorate your drum. if its been like this for a while you may also need a GE drum bearing they come in short and long sizes. and are relatively cheap to replace.hope this helps

Thanks

Squeals like a pig


Worn belt or not enogh tension on the belt(s). Remove the old belt(s) clean all the wheels and pully where the belt(s) go around with a rag and soap. Make sure the wheels are really clean and dry then install new belt(s).

Maytag gas dryer squealing


Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.

Try Repairclinic.com for help and parts. You are going to need heat resistant grease, and probably snap ring pliers.
