Have a G.E. DRYER PDVH515 . It squeeks, roughly on every rotation of drum. Not a consistant long noise.It's been going on for some time now so wondering if greater damaged may be done? Thankyou


The sound is most likely from the rear drum teflon bearing failing. It may also be the front teflon glides. Or both.

The problem is not going to get better and will gradually get worse. You won't do any real damage if you continue to use the dryer.

However, if the sound stops being a squeak, and sounds more like a grinding, metal to metal sound, stop using it and call the repairman.

How do you take the front panel off of a GE Profile Prodigy Dryer DPSR483 GAWW? There is a squeeking noise inside.


Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears. You have to remove the top and take 2 screws off that hold the front panel on but this is a gas appliance which requires a gas technician to legally work on it.

Elec. dryer squeeks...squeeks...squeeks...replaced belt, did not improve. Could it be the plastic drum slides, I only say this because they look really worn?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of 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, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Dryer squeeks while running


Most likely the noise is coming from the rollers and need to be replaced but a quick fix is to spry WD-40 on the rollers to shut it up, if you spray all the rollers and you still have the noise then it may be a belt.

Squeeks loadly when running


The drum belt is slipping or a support wheel bearing is worn.  Spray some belt dressing on the belt or replace the belt.  Lubricate the wheel bearing or replace it.  It is also possible that the seal between the drum and the housing (at the back) is worn and the drum is rubbing metal-to-metal on the housing.

Constant squeeking while drying clothes


It's most likely the roller bushigs/axles which need lubricating -- they've probably not failed yet, but will if ignored.

They squeak more when clothes are wet because of more weight.

I'd also lubricate the motor while your in there.

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
