Question about GE DSXH47EGWW Electric Dryer
My GE Dryer DSXH47EGOWW started making a horrible squeaking noise so my hubby sprayed the wheels inside with WD-40 - bad idea now it smells. While doing this he noticed a screw missing on the inside of the dryer on the back. He put in a similar one and then when turned it on it started scraping noise back there even after he took it out with the small back panel off there are sparks coming out. It sound like the heating coil scraping or maybe something back there, but I cant figure out how to take it off to get to it. I got the top off but that doesn't seem to help me any. I can't tell if the first squeal stopped because I am afraid it will catch on fire if I run it. We have had this dryer for about 2 years... HELP!
I know this prob is old, but I had the very same prob with my dryer (very loud squeaking noise). The prob was that there was a screw stuck between the rotating part and the stationary part. Meaning - look inside the dryer (main area - where the clothes go) and rotate it by hand. You may hear and see something causing the friction. Gerard
