SQUEEKING AS THE DRUM TURNS

HELLO,

I HAVE A GE #DPSB613GDOWW GAS DRYER.
THE SQUEEKING IS REPETITIVE AS THE DRUM TURNS AND
THE SOUND COMES FROM WHERE IS EE THE FELT IS MOUNTED AND THE DRUM PASSES THROUGH THE FELT. I HAD THE TOP OPEN AND THE LEFT FELT IS INTACT. THE RIGHT LOOKS LIKE IT IS 80% GONE. AS WITH THE CARS I'VE OWNED, THE PROBLEM NEVER IS PRESENT AT THE RIGHT TIME.
THIS EXPERIENCE IS THE SAME ON DRYERS AS THE NOIZE WASN'T PRESENT WHEN I RAN THE MACHINE WITH THE LID OPENED UP. IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS EASY TO REPLACE BUT INSTRUCTIONS WOULD BE NICE AS I'VE NEER DONE THIS BEFORE. COULD THIS HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY SWITCHING TO HIGH HEAT? NEVER USED THAT SETTING UNTIL 2 WEEKS AGO AND THIS SOUND HAS BEEN GETTING WORSE. i HAVE CLICKED ON THE FREE NOTE. IS THERE A CHARGE FOR THIS ANSWER?THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. DEAN

I believe your problem is the rear drum pivot and bearing.On high heat you would hear i squeak per rpm

Start button starts dryer and dryer stops when button is released.


Ge dryers have a belt sensing switch inside that won't let the dryer run (just as you describe) when the belt breaks or comes off. My guess is you broke a belt. With door open---hold in button door switch and hit the start switch to get it too run a few seconds. Watch the drum and see if it turns. My guess it will not. Belt is a long skinny band that goes all around the drum outer area and then down around the motor.

What is the squeeking sound in my dryer - sounds like a bearing?


most likely you are corect

its a cheap part & should cost you about a half hours labor to get repaired plus the part
plus theres 2 pads underneath the drum that should also be changed out while its apart sinc ethose sometimes make the sound you mention too

Gas dryer works, but does not heat


Hello there:
here is a discriptive way of trouble shooting the dryer and it lists the common components that will normally fail if the element has not failed first
Gas Dryer Diagnosticsgasdryerguts.gifThis picture shows the main parts of a gas dryer's burner systemthat can fail. Understanding each component and it's failure mode canreally help diagnose a problem with a gas dryer.
Ignitor failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn't glow, thereis no clacking sound as the gas valves open and there is no flameignition sound.
Radiant Sensor failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn't glow,there is no clacking sound as the gas valves open and there is no flameignition sound.
Gas Valve Solenoid failure: The drum turns and the igniter glows andgets turned off but there is no clacking sound as the gas valves openand there is no flame ignition sound.
And another component failure to be aware of, but that's not shown here, is the operating thermostat:
Operating Thermostat failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn'tglow, the gas valves don't open (there is no clacking sound) and thereis no flame ignition sound.
And here's a picture of other components to ohm out if you're getting no heating at all:

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing


Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.
