Hello sether74, You have a weak belt in your dryer. Contact the local appliance parts/repair stores for price & stock. To repace the belt unplug the AC power, if gas close the valve. Pry the top up & lay it on the front, make note of belts route on paper. Diassemble housing enough to replace belt. Vacuum the internal housing including the wings in side the drum. Check the drum rotation by hand before re assembling. Have fun.

Drum squeaks on rotation. can drum be lubed?


would not lube the drum but the two small wheels that the drum rotates on sometimes their "axles" get dry and rusty and will squeak. Put some antisieze on them and see if the noise goes away.

Kenmore elite quitepak 9 dryer is squeaking


What kind of vent piping are you using? The wrong vent pipe can cause the wheel over the heat element to overheat and squeak. It is recommended that rigid metal vent pipe is used now a days.

Squeaking


That squeak is probably the wheel above the heater. The heat from the element works on that wheel especially if the venting is partially blocked.

Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals


Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.

Inglis Citation dryer still squeaks


just an idea.....try to match the squeak to the revolutions of the drum or the guide pulley.
if the squeak is fast it is probably a guide pulley or a roller that the drum rides on. if the squeak is farther apart then the drum is wearing in one spot and rubbing on something. check for wear spots around the drum area.
hope this helps.........jay

Maytag dryer squeaks during cycle


if replacing the rollers didn't fix the squeak, you need to replace the teflon drum slides and drum gasket material. mine sqalled so much it would run you out of the room. now it's quiet.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.

Bosch Dryer squeaking noise


I have not seen any service manuals online. The squeak will possibly be a rubber bush used to silence the machine. If you get it stripped down you should be able to locate the squeak by carefully applying pressure in different areas and the squeak should go... then hopefully you will have found the culprit.
