You need some lubrication inside the dryer. There are several pulleys and a belt tensioner that can be noisy if not properly lubricated. Be careful to use only an approved lubricant to avoid a possible fire hazard.

GE dryer Mod # DWXR463EG1WW is squealing. Does anyone know what is wrong with it and how I can fix it?


Sounds like a rear bearing . remove the 2 screws from the top when you open the door . this way you can take the top off . When you take the top off remove the screws on the inner left and right on the front panel. disconnect the belt from the pulley and motor and pull the drum out . then you will see the rear bearing . cheap fix but can be a pain. good luck

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:

My GE DSXH43EA2WW Dryer is making a squeaking sound when running. Tends to get less noisey as the dryer continues to run


Hello
You will need to replace the dryer belt and inspect the belt rollers while you have it apart. If you go to the web link below it explains how to take apart the dryer to replace the belt, it has additional links to pictures and diagrams within the instructions. The first link is for replacement parts with diagrams of the dryer. Here is that link:

The next link is the Do It Yourself Article on replacing the dryer drum belt. while you have it apart remember clean the lint and dirt out of the cabinet interior. Here is the repair link:

The dryer has started to make a slight squeaking noise, but it is still drying


On a GE dryer the part that squeaks most is a WE3X75. Centerpost drum bearing. It is a simple repair but you must get into the machine.On a frigidaire model The plastic bearing that mounts in the rear sorta like a GE model. No other dryers that I can recall have the squeaks. The newer GE dryers are made very simular to the old reliable frigidaire models so you ought to hit it out the ball park with these 2 links.
