Squeaks from drum area during operation


Hi there!

I think it is the drum main bearing that has started to sieze.

If it is not this, then the drive belt may need replacement.

If this leads to a solution, please take a moment to accept. Thank you.

Ge frontloader dryer is squeeking incessantly, high pitch squeek driving us all crazy. by manually turning the drum i can isolate the squeek, but cannot see anything wrong. does it need to be taken...


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.

Dryer makes a squeeking,or "chirping" noise while


Most likely the problem is the drum rollers are in need of lubrication.
Lube the drum rollers and this should solve your noise problem

Dryer making a high pitched squeek, I took apart


I normally don't work on gas dryers but it sounds like the drum rollers are in need of lubrication. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Dryer squeaks when turned on, recently is getting louder and louder as drum is turning. Is it worth getting fixed, it's six years old


The squeek is probably the front 'bearing' which is generally made of felt.

Pop the top, pull off the front, remove the drum. Clean the felt or replace it.

A better alternative is to turn up the radio so you cant hear the squeek.

If you do go to this trouble, you may want to replace the belt while you have it apart.

Personally, id let it squeek. It may be annoying but on the ohter hand, you know when it is operating and when it is finished now.

Ge dryer squeeking


HI,

For a pictorial troubleshooting please open the link:

http://www.applianceaid.com/my_own_dryer.html

You will be looking at the front glides that the drum rides on, the glides are probably gone and the drum is rubbing on the plastic glide holder....if it is damaged will need to replace the front drum bearing/glide holder and all of the glides, usually about 4 of them.

If it is the drum front glides the noise will be from the front area, right behind the front panel at the top. If the noise is from the center rear of the dryer your drum bearing is gone, need to replace this also if you have to take this dryer apart..

Thanks

GE Dryer SQUEEKS VERY LOUDLY


Good Afternoon,
Replace all the drum rollers. You have to remove the belt and drum to get to them. Are you fixing this yourself? Let me know if this helps you and thank you for using FixYa!
