Most common and likely situation with this,... mechanical pump shaft seal has failed. This allowed water to enter into the electrical motor and lubrication from the front bearing had been washed away. The purpose of the shaft seal is to keep the water OUT of the motor!
Now as motor spins, bearings with less lubrication gets a lot hotter!
And... When metal gets hot, it gets soft! What was once perfectly round and lubricated, is now getting oblong or square and not lubricated. Square bearings don't spin well and are not as quiet as round bearings! Hence your loud noise. Oil on the shaft will do nothing. You either need to replace both bearings, front and back, and absolutely replace the shaft seal or, replace the motor and the shaft seal.
Hi Tom, The reason your pump is getting noisy is because the motor bearings are worn out. This can also be caused if the shaft seal between the motor and the wet end is leaking. The bearings can't be lubricated because they are sealed. The best solution is to have the bearings replaced as well as a complete seal kit for the wet end.
There is nothing to lubricate since the bearing are sealed. Grease and oil travels and will getr inside the drum is most cases. If you do decide to repack the bearings with grease a strong saftey pin is needed to pop out the grease seals on the bearings. If the belt tensioners pulley bearing squeaks, replace that pulley along with the belt.
The top and front panels will have to be removed to gain access to the internal parts. The drum will pull directly out when the panels are removed as well

Disconnect power to dryer. Take screws out above door, allowing dryer top to swing up and back.
Remove screw near top from side panel into front panel, allowing front panel to be removed and set to the side.
Some models have a very small access panel at the very center of the drum on back, which may hide an " E " clip on the drum shaft, which would have to be removed, all other dryers no longer use them. Lift dryer drum up slightly and pull it forward a couple inches. (you do not need to remove the belt) Remove all the loose washers / sleaves on the back shaft of the drum and install a new WE3X75 rear drum bearing, then re-install drum. (no need to put the E clip back on.)
Check the drum slides on the bottom front side of the drum. Most times, if the rear bearing is in need of replacement, so are the front drum slides, especially the one on the left (blower / motor) side.
Just trying to lubricate it will not solve your problem.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication. If you have a front loading machine, Unplug 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. Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them. If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem. Good Luck, I hope this helps
Raise and support the vehicle. For additional information, refer to Section 100-02 .

Remove the axle shaft (4334). For additional information, refer to Axle Shaft in this section.
CAUTION: Never remove the wheel bearing oil seal (1177) by itself. Always remove the rear wheel bearing (1225) and the inner wheel bearing oil seal at the same time. NOTE: If the wheel bearing oil seal is leaking, the axle housing vent may be plugged with foreign material. Using the special tools, remove the rear wheel bearing and wheel bearing oil seal together.
Lubricate the new rear wheel bearing.
For 4.0L SOHC and 4.0L EI with limited slip rear axles and 5.0L vehicles, use SAE 75W-140 High Performance Rear Axle Lubricant F1TZ-19580-B or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSL-M2C192-A.
For 4.0L SOHC and 4.0L EI with conventional rear axles, use SAE 80W-90 Premium Rear Axle Lubricant XY-80W90-QL or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSP-M2C197-A.
Using the special tools, install the rear wheel bearing.
Lubricate the lip of the new wheel bearing oil seal.
Use Premium Long-Life Grease XG-1-C or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESA-M1C75-B.
Using the special tools, install the wheel bearing oil seal.
Install the axle shaft. For additional information, refer to Axle Shaft in this section.
The squeaking is usually attributed to any (or all) of the following:
The drum support rollers
The rear drum seal
The front drum ring bearing
The front drum seal and bearing assembly
The Idler Pulley
Now before you throw yours hands in the air in a panic, these parts sound more technical than they are. All the bearings and seals for the drum are either felt or plastic, the drum rollers support the drum at the rear bulkhead, and the idler pulley is what the drive belt rides on. Searspartsdirect.com offers excellent illustrations to show you where these parts are located. Just type in your complete model number and there will be a part listing with part numbers on the next page. If the model number you posted this under is correct the parts can be found under the following headings:
Drum Support Rollers (item 44) Part #349241T (pkg. of two)
Rear Drum Seal (item 66) Part #279857
Front Drum Ring Bearing (item 62) Part #279441
Drum Seal and Bearing Assy. (item 38) Part #3406129
Idler Pulley (item 53) Part #691366
I list all these parts as a convenience in case you need to order any of them, and to help illustrate where these parts are located. You may not need ANY of them.
The drum support rollers require lubrication at the point where the roller meets the shaft with a light turbine oil. This should be done periodically to keep them rolling smooth. DO NOT get any oil on the rubber rollers or it may cause the drum to slip. You should also remove any build of lint before lubricating.
The drum seals can become brittle with age and start making noise as the drum rotates. This is particularly true with the rear drum seal. It will become discolored with age and turn brown in many cases. Inspect the front and rear seals of the drum for excessive wear. If parts of the seal begin to protrude into the interior part of the drum, this is a good sign that the seal is bad. The seals cannot be lubricated and will require replacement.
The idler pulley is a small plastic wheel on a shaft that the drive belt rides on. Lubricating the idler pulley wheel in the same manner as the drum roller supports is also required from time to time. DO NOT get any oil on the drive belt.
I know this seems like a lot, but a simple matter of cleaning and lubricating may be all that you need. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
