On the whirlpool driers there are two support rollers that need to be replaced periodicly. the best thing to do is to get a repair kit or tune up kit. it comes with a new set of support rollers, an idler pulley and a new belt. If you are confident it is a fairly straight forward repair. ***ALWAYS UNPLUG THE DRIER BEFORE YOU DO ANY THING***

MY Whirlpool Cabrio Gas dryer is making a chirping sound that comes and goes WGD6600vw1?


Likely you have a part inside the machine where metal is rubbing metal. Someone must take the machine all apart and look for where paint has rubbed off, or shiny metal is showing where the problem is. Be blessed.

Squeeking noise are the barron going bad


Squeaking noises are NOT necessarily an indication of bearing failure - but could be an indication of a slipping belt or something else rubbing. The machine itself may be rubbing against a washer, wall, door jamb, or anything really.

Look around the machine. See if it is in contact - or close to ant of these things. When it is running - it could be bumping against something. If nothing is found - have a look inside the the dryer. Inspect the belt and clean the drum where the belt tracks. Repl;ace the belt it is ready to break, missing parts or de-laminating. If you find shiny metal filings - that indicates metal is rubbing somewhere and is likely to be the cause of the squeak.

Good luck.

Hi banging noise coming from machine, drum still spinnning and heating up


I am not sure but it sounds as if a piece of the gaskets around the front and/or back of the drum may have come loose. Try this... open the door and look for a gasket/ring that is located where the drum meets the front of the machine housing (this is where the drum slides against the door frame or front of the dryer) Some models have different configurations but the drum rotates against some type of gasket material) use you fingers and slide them along the gasket and feel for any missing pieces. Then do the same with the rear drum gasket, if there is one. If that is not the problem It maybe from your dryer not being level, check that next, a non level dryer will shake and make a thumping noise.

The dryer squeals extremely loud when drying. It sounds like metal scraping against metal.It appears the drum may be rubbing against something. I have lubricated all moving parts.

Rubbing noise metal to metal


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Sounds like the tub is rubbing against something


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
When you have the drum out you can check for rub marks on the drum also.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.

DRUM MAKES NOISE WHEN TURNING ALMOST LIKE IT'S RUBBING AGAINST SOMETHING INSIDE THE MACHINE. SOUNDS LIKE DRUM IS TRYING TO STICK AT SOME POINT OF ROTATION.


check that all the support springs are connected and one is not broken. It is also possible that something is between the drum and the frame.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing
