Most driers have to be disassembled from the back and work your way forward. Try that.

When is on it makes a bird chirping noise that goes away after a while


Hello- Depending on the model you have it is most likely either the front or rear bearing. The front bearing on some GE's is actually a series of 3 teflon strips attached to a plastic support and the rear bearing is a ball and socket type. The teflon strips do wear down over time and then the drum starts to wear into the plastic support. The rear bearing "socket" also wears over time and can cause the drum to sit a few degrees lower in the back and cause squeaking. It may fade as the dryer heats-up because some metal parts are expanding and plastic parts wear in a certain grooves, so to speak, once they have been moving for awhile. Unfortunately you will probably need someone out to disassemble the dryer and find the specific cause. You may be ok to just live with it for awhile but it could be causing more damage to the parts as time goes on, meaning a higher repair cost. Hope this helps a little, best regards.

The dryer makes a loud squealing noise when running most of the time. Think it is a belt or bearing but cannot figure how to get inside. Top has 2 screws that cannot be reached with standard straignt screw...


Normally you would remove the front of the dryer, then it makes for easy acess of the drum and rollers..
The noise is probably your rollers, either needs lube or replacement

The rear bearing is noted for this. oiling will delay the inevitable unless it has already gone too far. the repair kit has a teflon sleeve in it.

The dryer makes a loud noise and also a rubber smell develops after a 1/2 hour of use


My dryer did the same thing. I had to replace the front support glide assembly and needed 4 teflon glides.
The front part of the dryer runs over this plastic piece seen here upside down.
00087335.jpg
this part is about $50 CAN there are 4 plastic or teflon glides that fit into this.
My dryer had worn through the teflon glides and start wearing away this piece.
My dryer is a GE front load dryer. And I did get a burning smell because the dryer was wearing away the plastic. After the teflon strips wore down.
Hope this helps

you need to replace the inner plastic "shell" and the teflon pieces that the drum rides on. The dryer drum has eaten thru the teflon slides, and has probably started eating the shell away also.

About $40 in parts available on line will fix the problem.

Frigidaire dryer makes noise when it tumbles


"spindle" would seem to refer to the rear drum bearing but teflon would describe the front. Have they both been done? Usually when one is worn out the other isn't far behind. Check the idler arm/wheel for wear. Also motors make a sound when the bearings are bad

Squeeky noise


I own a Frigidaire Heavy Duty Dryer The Model # is FDE436RES1. It is 10 years old. When running the dryer it makes a very loud squealing noise although the heat and the dryer still work. Is this a belt or roller problem or does it sound like something else. It is very high pitched and can be heard throughout the entire home. I do not know much about dryer troubleshooting so your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
