Question about Hotpoint TDC32 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Heavy Duty - 5 cycle dryer that is squeeking. We've taken it apart and found that it's not the belt but something towards the back end of the drum. Would there be a gasket of some kind that has gone bad?

Could be a dry rear drum bearing, if it has a removable rear panel, unscrew it and spray the end of the drum shaft and bearing with Wd40 or similar.

Very squeeky dryer, starts out quiet then intensifies through the cycle untill it can be heard from outside; has a rhythmic squeek.


The belt is probably rubbed smooth. Since you already sprayed it, after the spray dried out, it starting squeaking again. I suggest examining the belt and replacing it if necessary.

There is a teflon bearing that holds the back of the drum you will need to replace. To get to it remove the top cover, take off the control panel, remove the front cover, take off the belt, then take the drum out, ususlly by lifting it up as you pull it foward. While have it all apart I would reccomend replacing the teflon glides at the front that the drum rides on.

Squeeking while dryer is drying


i would suggest calling the repiar. The longer you wait the more expensive this will be. One of two things is happening. One, bearing is going out, or most likely the belt is slipping on the drum and needs replacement. Good luck

Dryer squeek when running


A squeak is usually a roller that needs grease. It's best taken care of, you don't want the roller to wear out. Take the dryer apart, remove the drum and use heat resistant grease on the roller shafts. Note how the belt goes so you will be able to get it back on. You may need snap ring pliers to get at the roller shafts.

General Electric Heavy Duty Dryer willnot start when start button


WARNING: High Voltage may bzzt you... careful.

Your dryer thinks that it is at the end of a dry cycle.

First thing to do is disconect the dryer from the 220v mains and let it sit for about 10 min.

then, spin the timer four or five times around and then stop it at a TIMED dry cycle, not an automatic cycle. (example: 60 minutes).

Plug unit back into the wall.

SLAM door on unit and press button again...

Turn off the electricity to the dryer.Try spraying the belt with automotive belt dressing inside that goes around the bucket.. If that does not work it is probably the bushing at the back of the dryer. you will have to remove the bucket to grease the bushing.if it is still good. judging by your details it seems good.But it could be dry.Needs lubrication.
