There is a hub and bearing that needs to be replaced you will need to have this serviced by a qualified tech. The whole front of the dryer has to come off and the basket needs to be removed.

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Model 69822 is less than 8 years old. Screeches loudly for about a minute on startup. Runs fine after that and dries the clothes.


The screeching is probably a slipping belt. This can be caused by"

1. Glazed or worn out belt.
2. Improper belt tension.
3. Overloaded dryer
4. Bad drum bearing

If it is used heavily (often), I would assume #1 which is the cheapest and quickest fix. You can investigate #2 at the time of replacement.

Dryer screeches than stops cycle. Now doesnt work


I would bug them until they fixed it. You got sold a bill of goods. In other words avpiececof junk. Your bearings are burned up. You should ask for your money back if that is in the clause. Hold on to your paperwork and get copies made. I hope you didn't pay but 50-75 dollars.

Screeching on startup


The screeching noise is either the front felt type bearing or the rear roller bearing. you will need to dismantle the dryer to confirm which is at fault.

Screeching noise when running the dryer.


Most likely source is the idler pulley. Secondly, is the drum support roller closest to the motor. If the screech is a slower frequency it's likely the roller because the support roller travels at slower speed than idler pulley. Both are replaced by raising top and removing front. Caution: Pull plug before starting and draw diagram of how the belt travels around the idler roller. You will need it to get this back on properly.

Kenmore 90 series dryer screeches when starts


The likely cause is your belt slipping. The reason it is louder when you start is just that...It pulls harder to get the tub rolling and as it gains momentum the belt doesn't have to work as hard. Your belt is worn and will eventually break. When it slips, it is wearing at a greater rate, so you may want to go ahead and replace it.

Dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.


The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.
