Most likely the front support bearing. If this is the problem you will likely have to replace the slides too. The wizards have a ten year warranty. The bearing is part number WE3M26 and the slides probably need 3 or 4 of them are we1m333. Hope this helps.

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.

It could be the rear bearing ( easy to replace). I would check the idler pulley and blower wheel assembly also. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/dryernoisyge.html

How do i oil the belts? The dryer squeaks every time its turned on?


You don't oil the belts on a dryer. This will cause the belt to slip on the motor shaft and/or drum. Oil permiated into the metal of the dryer drum can ruin it causing any replacement belt to slip as well.

If the dryer is squealing, you probably need to lubricate the idler pulley wheel at the axle point (also known as a tension pulley). If this is a GE model they usually have drum slides and a drum bearing that support the front of the dryer drum as well. When they wear down, they begin to make noise. The drum slides are made of teflon and not only help support the drum, but ensures it turns smoothy. You may need to replace both the drum slides and the drum bearing.

If the model number is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Drum Bearing - WE3M26
Drum Slide - WE1M481 (Blue), WE1M333 (White)

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different from the one you listed this question under, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Sounds like your motor may be shot. Or possibly one of the pully's bearings are seized and is causing so much resistance the motor is unable to overcome it.
