It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

Squeaking is normally caused by a bad bearing or a slipping drum belt.

Drum squeaks on rotation. can drum be lubed?


would not lube the drum but the two small wheels that the drum rotates on sometimes their "axles" get dry and rusty and will squeak. Put some antisieze on them and see if the noise goes away.

The squeak was from a bad bearing in the belt tensioner.

I have an Amana (M# ALE643RBW), when started the dryer squeaks for the first 10 minutes of the cycle, then slows to a squeak every 7 minutes... why? Maybe a bit of lube?


I have the same problem. While I have not fixed it yet, I assume it is a drum roller. Most dryers have two 4 to 5 inch diameter drum rollers which hold up the dryer barrel in the back. These drum rollers are wheels which have rubber on the outside where they touch the drum and a metal hole in their middle. They turn on a metal rod which goes through their middle. As the inside of the wheel turns on the rod, the metal gets eaten away and they squeak. Replacing one or both drum rollers should fix the problem.

hi tecate.

This can be a few things, either bearing,transmission, drivebelt or motor.
Start with the drive belt. Take it off and see if the drum when rotated makes the same squeak as befor when you apply a little pressure to the drum.
If it does not do it it can be the tension in the belt. Or the belt is gone HERE are drawings and partslist. You can also obtain the parts here
