SOURCE: Squeaking!!!!

Asko T701 dryer,
Squeaking loudly for the full dry cycle
Warrant wet out last year. We complained to the repair man that it was squeaking prior to the warrant running out, he said they just do that. It is now very loud and I know noise = friction, and I am concerned. I looked into it and sprayed some silicon on the belt, but it sounds like the front gasket is the problem.
Is this a common problem, and is there a common fix?

John

Whirlpool tumble dryer making a loud noise


the dryers drum that spins around is driven by a belt . A belt tensioner is attached to provide a secure fit when turning. The tensioner has a idler pully which has a bearing in it. When worn the bearing squeaks or wears out causing this noise you have. Sears sells the belt and idler pulley as a set to retify this situation you have. Instructions come with these kits

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise
