My kenmore 84052 is making a squeaking noise


DRYER MAKES NOISES.

The pulleys or rollers. Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density gear grease to re oil/grease them.

The bearings by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.

The belt loose or worn can make funny noises

The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum

Drum turns but sounds like a small metal object, possibly a screw, banging around inside . Continued to use and now sound is much louder and sounds like a bigger object.

Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

Do I lubricate my whirlpool dryer drum front and back


Because of the extreme heat of the heating cycle and because people do really not want grease/oil on their clothes, dryers are made never to be greased.
However.
If you have already lifted the top up, and have found the wheels and or slides the drum rides on, a little oil or grease might be OK.
Remember oil & grease burn, so you will want to use a tiny bit.
Do not oil the felt material.
Be blessed

Our 600 Kenmore Gas Dryer, makes a squeaking sound and the drum does not seem to turn freely!


Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Putty knife
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • WD 40
tyn-hp.gifGet what you need for every
project at HomeDepot.com
    • 1 Disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet or the breaker/fuse box. Be sure that the dryer is disconnected before you continue.
    • 2 Raise the top of the dryer. You will do this by inserting a putty knife into the crack between the top and front panel. Push against the spring clips to release. There will be one clip on each side of the dryer. Once the top has been released you can disconnect the wires to the door switch located on the right side on the backside of the front panel.
    • 3 Using a Phillips head screwdriver remove screws holding the front panel to the side panels. Pull the front panel away and lift off the bottom clips to remove it completely.
    • 4 Remove the belt from the idler pulley. The idler is located behind the blower/motor unit. When the belt is free you can slide the belt to the back edge of the drum. Lift it straight up to disengage the rear bearing from cradle.
    • 5 Pull the drum out through the front of the cabinet. You will be able to see the drum support ball on the back of the drum and the cradle holding the ball.
    • 6 Apply a generous portion of supplied grease or spray WD 40 into the cradle. In almost all cases, this will resolve your squeak. Once you have greased the drum to your satisfaction, you can reassemble the dryer.

Hi my dryer has difficulty in starting to turn the drum at times and just buzzes also it has recently started squeaking. What parts do I need to sort this out. Thanks


Your dryer just needs a new drive-motor and some grease/oil. It would also be a good time to replace the belt. There is an idler pulley that will squeak if it is not oiled. Also, the drum connects to back of the case using a ball joint, it will require cleaning and re-greasing. Make sure to get the vacume out and clean everything on the inside of the unit(even try to get inside the blower case to clean out all of the lint).

Squeaking when dryer runs


Yes. Replace the rear bearing cup that the drum sits down into. Do not oil. This cup takes a special grease that you can get with the cup. Also don't let anyone try to sell you the whole bearing kit. All you need is the cup and the grease.

I've just purchased a used dryer, and unfortunately it makes a steady whining noise while it's running. It's driving me nuts.


sounds like youhave something in the blower wheel. if your dryer has a front removable lower panel with a putty knife on the left and right sides 1 inch in from the sides slide putty knife in to release catches. two screws hold the bower housing on then you can look at blower wheel. if it doesnt have removable panel then youmust access it from the back access panel then on left side take out 4 srews that hold blower cover on and pull back as far as youcan without bending top and look inside with a flashlight.. remember always unplug unit
