    We have the same problem. The dryer squeaks once per every revolution and only when rotating in a clockwise direction. Also, the squeak diminishes somewhat as the dryer heats up. The noise is at its worst when the dryer is first started.

Check the spindle or axle the drum rotates on. They can be oiled at the pivoting point or turning point. The motor may also be oiled at the axle. You have something grinding in there. Probably metal to metal. Graphite works best as it does not dissipate with heat.

There are two main causes of dryer noises: foreign objects in the felt strips, and dried bearings. To relube the bearings, you need to disassemble the dryer and pull the drum. Inspect all bearings, including the belt tensioner.

replace what is damaged by wear.

You probably have a bad bearing in the center at the back. Or the support pads could be worn out and its starting to rub metal.

I have a GE Dryer model type 333/453/473 and I recently noticed a ''sqeaking'' noise near the motor. Does anyone know what might be causing this. Do I need to lubricant something. The dryer still dries...


this noise is usually due to the ideler pulley going bad and should be replaced but until then take the back off and spray the pulley with some sillicone

Sqeaking dryer


Find a heat resistant grease. It must say heat resistant. Then you will need snap ring pliers. The rollers are behind the drum, the whole machine must be taken apart, no fun. While apart, vacuum everything. Note how the belt goes before you take it off. A few extra screws while you're in there will expose the fan area. You will be suprised what you can find there.
