The bearing or spindle the drum rotates on is probably bad or worn out. You can get to the back and turn it by hand and feel it when you turn it. You can tell if it is metal rubbing. If so, you can replace it.

Magic chef dryer making very loud noise as it turns, how to get the bottom off


No need to take the bottom off - the top, front, and back come off - if the noise is a rather high pitched squeak the pads on the drum are worn out, if it sounds like a squeak but more metallic/raspy sound check the motor bearings, also check the drive belt.

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

Kenmore clothes dryer squeaks loud to get going


Sounds like a bearing or the drive belt. Try turning the empty drum by hand. If it sounds normal you probably just need to replace the belt. If it make strange sounds when you turn it by hand then its probably the bearing.

The belt isn't a big deal but a bearing probably is.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

When the dryer gets hot, the tumbler begins to make a continous squeaking noise as if there is metal to metal; not a grinding noise. If you allow it to cool down and restart, it doesn't start until it...


Well ya never mention in your question what brand you have but a GE or Hotpoint dryer has a small plastic insert that wears thin over time. It begins to do a squeak squeak squeak type of noise.And that noise is intermittent, on a Frigidaire model the noise would start out low and gradually get worse. The bearing sometimes gets so bad it gets chopped off and the tub falls into the heating element.

Our clothes dryer squeaks when it is drying clothes. How can it be fixed or what is the problem?


Most time them squeak is like bad brake pads on a car. The plastic bearing is gone and now the drum is riding on the metal bracket. The front of the drum rides on slides and when they wear out you get a scrubbing sound and not so much a squeak. So i would say you have a GE/Hotpoint type dryer with a rear bearing that looks like this:

My Maytag dryer MDE9606AZW has started to squeak, sounds like a fast spinning squeak, sometimes loud and sometimes quieter. What might be causing this and how do I fix it?


It's likely your drum ring bearing has worn out. It's a strip of plastic that keeps the metal parts from rubbing has the barrel turns.

Dryer is squeeking


Hi


The motor bearings may be worn. Remove the drum drive belt and then start the dryer. If it squeals with the belt off then the motor bearings are likely worn.

There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum. They can squeak. Remove the lower front panel and you should see the small roller near the motor and belt.
Another is the two larger rollers that support the drum. You will see this if you remove the front lower panel. Another is where the drum rides on the upper round part of the door/opening and it has a plastic guide that separates the metal drum from the metal door/opening. Over time this wears out and the two metal pieces will squeak.
