    clothes drying!

If it was the belt, it seems it should slip more when loaded since the torque needed is greater then. A bad bearing might do just the opposite; holler when empty and quiet somewhat when loaded.
If the back panel can be removed without disabling the machine, it might be possible to locate the source of the noise better and it may not even be necessary to have the dryer running if (after unplugging it) the drum could be turned by hand while another listens at the rear.

It is probably the rollers that the drum sits on. When these get old they loose their grease and start to seize up. They will start to make a terrible noise when this happens. They are cheap but kind of a pain to change out. They sit on the front of the drum and some models have them on the rear. In order to change them out you need to remove the drum. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.

Whirlpool duet dryer belt squeeking

Makes a loud humming noise--like an unbalanced washer, does it empty or full, starts right away, dries clothes perfectly fine, just really loud


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

My dryer was making a loud squeeking noise while drying, now it won't start, I can hear it trying purring but than it does not start, help!


if you can hear the motor running,and if this unit does not have a belt shut off switch,the motor will run even if the belt is broken,the squeaking noise earlier was probably the belt starting to slip on the drum,replace the belt and drum glides when repairing,they are relatively inexpensive and as long as its torn down replace these too

Dryer making squeeking noise


Check the dryer belt tensioner and pulley assembly. It be wearing out. You'll need to remove the back cover of the dryer to do this. Turn off the gas and/or electric before working on the unit.

Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...


It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.
