Screeching Kenmore front loading dryer

Our Kenmore front loading dryer, model 417.420101 screeches off and on while the dryer is on. The sound is not constant, nor consistent in terms of frequency. It is load and jarring.

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

Big Thunk when Frigidarie Front Loading washing machine started the final spin cycle, then at the end of the cycle soft screeching sound when drum is moving back and forth, any thoughts? amshap50@gmai


does not sound good. if you can remove a cover on front bottom or on the back you may find a broken shock, or counter weight, either would need replacing before running again

I have a frigidaire stackable washer/dryer model number FEx831cs0. The washer is working just find but the dryer for a few weeks has been making the worst screeching sounding in the world. I am not sure if...


A loose belt often makes a squeak that pulsates with the clothes hitting the paddles in the drum. It's probably the upper drum glide or rear bearing. If it's a constant screech coming from the front, it's probably the glide. If the noise seems to be in the back, suspect the bearing. You might check for a sock or something small that is stuck somewhere between the drum and the dryer.

Bearing kit: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drum-Bearing-Kit/1851?modelNumber=FEX831CS0

Neither are very difficult to repair.

Drum is making some really nasty banging then screaching sounds when entering high spin - any ideas??


sounds like main drum bearings not common but if the bearings are worn you get the banging noise and as it slackens the drive belt you get screeching noise as the belt slips.

Dryer makes a loud squeaking/squealing noise while drying.


If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor
time.

GE Model WHDSR209D2WW makes unbearable loud metal Screeching noise


ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.
