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.

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.

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.

Kenmore Dryer 110 is making a loud squeaking noise.


Only a few things will make that noise. The squeaking is caused by a moving part having trouble turning while rubbing against a fixed part.
  1. The idler pulley is worn
  2. The drum support rollers are hard turning on their shafts
  3. The felt seals at the front or back of the drum is worn allowing metal to metal contact while turning
  4. An article has fallen into the housing around the blower wheel and the wheel is rubbing on it.
Listen for the frequency of the sound. The drum rollers and drum felts will squeak at the frequency of the tub turning. The idler pulley turns much faster as does the blower wheel. Knowing this will help pin down the cause.

Squeaking Kenmore Stackable Dryer


Your rear drum bearing has worn through the plastic and is now hitting the metal support underneath it,
soon it will act like a guillotine and slice of the ball, the drum will fall backwards into the heating element and short to ground causing the fuse to blow the heater element to burn intwo and the whole thang will be dead in the water.

The dryer is making a terrible squeaking sound.


That my friend is the sound of metal to metal on the rear drum bearing. The drum has a ball mounted on the rear of it affectionately known in the biz as a trailer ball. It rides in a grease slathered plastic bearing. The bearing is mounted with a metal bracket. Over time the plastic will wear down and the ball will begin to meet the metal mount.
The mount will begin to act like a guillotine and actually eventually cut the ball off 85a72c7.jpgand the drum will fall into the heating element and the resulting massive breakdown only occurs on a sunday night. LOL

Loud Squeaking Noise kenmore gas dryer 80 series


You need to change your drum rollers. To get to them you take the dryer apart from the front not the back. There are 2 screws where the filter goes in on top. Then pull the top toward you and up. Then remove the 2 - 5/16 inch screws on each side of the front panel about 2 to 3 inches down. Then pull the front up and out. Then you will see everything. Replace the belt, drum rollers, and idler making sure to oil each as you re-install them. Then put back together and your on your way.
