Sounds as if your rollers are going bad.

You would have to remove the front panel and remove all the screws out of the front to lift top of dryer.

Do not remove any screws out of the back, it will release your drum stabilizer.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

Well ya never mention in your question what brand you have but a GE or Hotpoint dryer has a small plastic insert that wears thin over time. It begins to do a squeak squeak squeak type of noise.And that noise is intermittent, on a Frigidaire model the noise would start out low and gradually get worse. The bearing sometimes gets so bad it gets chopped off and the tub falls into the heating element.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The squeaking sound comes when the belt is either broken or worn out and needs replacement or the idler pulley is bad. If you want to do this yourself then you can check this video on YouTube:

When the dryer begins its process, a long loud "squeaking" sound erupts, the dryer still dries, but this sound may last 5 - 7 minutes, then the squeak diminishes to a soft squeaking sound the remainder of...


The noise is likely coming from a roller which keeps tension on the belt which wraps around the drum. This roller will sometimes squeal as it wears on the shaft to which is mounted Follow the instructions below to replace the Idler roller.

Pull the dryer out enough to get behind it. there is a lower black panel to be removed by taking out all the 5/16" screws around the edge. Swing the panel aside and look into it. You will see the motor to the right. The roller should be between you and the motor. The configuration looks like the picture at the link below.

The belt goes in the grooves on the motor pulley and the flat side runs around the idler pulley, according to the GE chart on this image.

Our maytag dryer squeaks when rotating, seems to be getting worse


Sometimes a light spray of silicone on the rubber is enough to stop the squeaks!

Gradual squeaking increase


Check the drum's roller bearings - they sometimes look like large rollerblade wheels. The may need to be replaced. They are relatively inexpensive, and can usually be found at your local appliance parts store.
Too, check for a  felt "ring" around the front of drum (if applicable). Again, if too worn, replace it.

Loud squeaking noise


dont spray that on the belt lol that stuff is flamable i think lol you most likely have bad phelt glides  they are pads that sit between the drum and the drum support and when that wears out it squicks or maybe you have a bad idler pulley which is what holds the belt maybe its rusty or something but most likelt its the pads
