GE Spacemaker dryer scraping metalic sound when on

All of the sudden the dryer is making a terrible scraping sound when it is on. I am hoping to be able to do the repairs myself. Thank you for your help.

    The dryer makes an intermittent squealing sound. The unit is about 12 years old. The GE repairman identified the culprit as the rear bearing. Does anyone have a sugestion on the best way to replace this bearing? Do I start from the front or back of the unit?

    Thanks in advance.

It makes a metallic scraping sound during the wash cycle


NOT A SOLUTION BUT THE ANSWER. IN MY CASE THE SCRQAPING IS COMING FROM A BRACKET UNDER THE TRANSMISSION, SCRAPING THE BASE. I AM TOO LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION, I BELIEVE RAISING THE BASKET IS THE ANSWER.

My ge stackable smells like it is burning. How do I fix this?


Well, you do not mention which machine causes the smell. My concern is fire hazzard, be sure to check the dryer hose system, and DO NOT USE plactic vent hose, major fire hazzard, they make the same thing in metal and it works better....

My GE spacemaker dryer has heat but very little air flow. We cleaned the air vent but it didn't help, what else might be wrong? Thanks so much.


Make sure it is clean from the blower wheel to the vent exit. Make sure the blower isn't slipping on the motor shaft. Eric

GE spacemaker dryer won't start


Have you tried keepin the dryer door open, depressing the safety switch which enables the dryer to work when it is closed, and then turn on the dryer to see if it turns at all? Sometimes its the smallest things that cause these problems. That switch that gets pressed when the door closes, sometimes malfunctions. Sometimes the door of the dryer gets out of whack and doesnt really make contact with the switch enough to trigger the flow of electricity.

Terrible scraping noise from drum,what is it?


more likely there is a bra wire caught between the inner drum and outer tub, possibly wrapping itself around the element in the bottom.
