    Sounds like I have the same problem, my dryer is a Performa and I noticed that the tops comes off but not sure how to do that. Do I have to take the top off to get to the rollers? Also, if the drum got to hot would that make it squeal? I'm thinking there might have been a crimp in the exhaust hose. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

    The lint filter is at the bottom of the dryer. I don't see anyway to loosen the top in the front. The back has two brackets that can be removed and allow the top to be lifted slightly as the wires are connected and don't leave much room. The front is attached with two kind of Screws? can't really see.


    Any further advise would be appreciated!!!

Take the dryer apart and oil the drum support rollers and the idler pulley. If this does not fix it. Replace the support rollers and the idler pulley. To acces the rollers, take the 2 screws out under the lint filter and then raise the top of the dryer. then remove the 2 screws holding on the front. Take the front off and remove the drum and theres the rollers and the idler pulley. (taking apart the dryer applies to a whirlpool, kenmore, roper, kitchenaid, estate.) If you have another brand let me know i will tell you how to take it apart. (if oiling doesnt fix it your local parts store should have all the parts needed in stock.)

My dryer is squealing and won't spin


It sounds like the drum is frozen. The squealing is from the motor slipping on the belt. There may also be something keeping the belt from tightning. Try these links:

Continual squealing when dryer is on. I am told that there is no belt in this dryer to cause the problem. Problem has happened on three different occassions since purchse 3 years ago. Have had repair...


Get a new repairman, pretty sure there is a drive belt. The squealing may be caused by bad rollers. The drum rides on rollers, they look like rollerblade wheels. If one of those has gone bad, it will cause the squealing noise.

A little lubricant on the pulleys near the belts will go along way. Its vereasy to access these parts front the back of the machine with a 1/4 hex head screwdriver.
