Question about GE 5.8 Cu. Ft. Extra-Large Capacity Electric Dryer
Dryer makes load, high pitch squeaking noise when spinning. Could this be a belt or barrings? Is it easy to fix?
There are two possibilities for this question. 1) there is an idler roller that give the belt the correct tension . unplug dryer and remove idler roller see if it spins freely if not replace it @0 there are two drum rollers in back of machine thatdrum rides on remove drum it's self explanitory how to remove drum and very easy also. you can roll these wheels and check for free movement visually check them ,one or both should be worn out or the bearing in the wheel has failed before putting old or new wheels back sand the wheel shafts to get any gunk off them and that's about the only thing that can make a dryer squeek
