Sounds Like the drum is scraping. You can remove the drum and inspect the felt bearing/gasket for damage or a coin or screw that got lodged in it. You will need to remove Top and front in order to remove drum Carefully note the routing of the belt near the moter.

My ge clothes dryer started making a loud skreaching noise im positive its the drum rubbing on metal in the front of the dryer how do i replace what ever is in between that seperates the 2


You need to replace either the front bearing (plastic that drum rolls over) or the glides that go on the front bearing ( glides that insert into the plastic bearing piece that the drum glides on.I would change both, simply remove the top of the dryer then you will see two 5/16' bolts that hold the front to the sides just inside on the top, remove the two bolts and remove the front of the dryer and you will see the bearing and glides that I have described. Replace,reassemble and begin quiet drying again. Good luck!

I have a rubbing sound coming from the gas dryer drum


The rubbing sound is probably due to worn or missing glides around the dryer opening that the drum rides on. These are usually mounted on a felt strip that is glued to the front panel of the dryer. Remove the front panel and you will see this strip. It is easy to replace and comes in a kit with the glue. Make sure you clean the area after removing the old strip so the glue will adhere properly. If this strip and glides are in good shape, I would look at the bearing or rollers at the back of the drum and check clearance around the drum for rubbing. Hope this will fix ya.

Hi, My LG dryer is making a sqeeking noise when turned on. Pretty loud at first and then sound reduces further in the drying cycle. Any suggestions?


If you can open one of the smalle panels to see inside around the drum- check to see if the belt is rubbing and there is black rubber dust or strings around that area. It is probably one of the bearings or felt gaskets or seals that the drum rides on.

Drum seems to be rubbing and making noise when turning


the drum does rub ... generally, there is no front or back to a drum. It rides on the rim on the back and on a smaller rim on the door. I normally find a felt "bearing" at these locations. and sometimes, there are wheels at the back on the bottom. Gravity and the drive belt make it work.

I hope this helps you

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.

Dryer noise


A drum support wheel bearing could need lubrication or be replaced.  Also some drum support wheels have a rubber coating that wears off causing misalignment and noise.  Possibly drum gasket (sometimes felt material) where drum meets rear panel is worn allowing metal-to-metal contact--should be replaced.

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
