Dryer makes noise when i put clothes in. rubbing squeeky noise


Hello there
the dryer drum rests on rollers that keep it aglinged and straight
if one of these rollers start to wear out this will make the dryer drum misalign which in turn will make the dryer squeel also if the belt is starting to wear this will make it make noises too so i would suggest first opening up the back ofthe dryer and looking at the rollers and seeing if their is any wear from the belt or the rollers and if they are in need of replace ment replace the worn out part ok
Best regards richard
