Kenmore clothes dryer squeaks loud to get going


Sounds like a bearing or the drive belt. Try turning the empty drum by hand. If it sounds normal you probably just need to replace the belt. If it make strange sounds when you turn it by hand then its probably the bearing.

The belt isn't a big deal but a bearing probably is.

Dryer has a loud squeaking noise when you first start it up


Sounds like your drum rollers need lubrication or replacement.
If you have a front load machine, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum. Remove the drum and this will expose the drum rollers. Lubricate the drum rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil at the shaft.
Hope this helps

Squeaky GE Dryer


Greetings,
sight unseen, its hard to say exactly, but it is a place to start by looking at the belt pulley. these will make squeaking sound when bad or going bad..The drum rollers usually make a thumping sound, however, they can squeak too before failing..I would try and add a few drops of turbine oil to see if either get quiet..if so, replace when find which one is causing noise..Bruce

PS
its possible, the motor itself could cause this, but slim

Dryer turns and heats, but makes a very loud squeaking (or should I say, SCREECHING) noise. The heavier the load, the louder the squeaking.


Does it sound like a belt ?
Or does it sound like metal ?
Might need to replace the drive belt..
Or - it could be the bearings..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)

Loud Squeaking Noise kenmore gas dryer 80 series


You need to change your drum rollers. To get to them you take the dryer apart from the front not the back. There are 2 screws where the filter goes in on top. Then pull the top toward you and up. Then remove the 2 - 5/16 inch screws on each side of the front panel about 2 to 3 inches down. Then pull the front up and out. Then you will see everything. Replace the belt, drum rollers, and idler making sure to oil each as you re-install them. Then put back together and your on your way.
