Real bad squeaking noise in dryer

I keep hearing really bad squeaking noises in my dryer and i dont know if its the belt or the pulleys in the bottom of dryer. was wondering if i could get manual or a diagram on how to get the pulleys or the belt off to check I have a very similar problem, however I was told by a tech that the problem is common with Maytag, and it seems to be "brake" related. That is it makes this very loud squeaking noise just before it stops. Not sure if what's the "real" problem is, however it's getting louder and louder.

Yes check the brake. Just open the back panel and look under the machine. Check the brake latch and make sure that when the unit starts to spin that the brake backs itself off and also make sure that the bad is not worn down. If it is then replace it. A few screws and off it comes. To check the pulley and the belt there is really no wrong way to do it. First look at the belt and make sure that it is not cracked or really smooth. If that checks out ok then make sure that it is attached to the pulley fully and that the pulley is not bent

How do I fix a squeaky belt on a minivan?


Post question is automotive section?

Is belt squealing? or is there a squeaky noise?

Squealing would denote belt slippage... belt might be loose, apply more belt tension at idler pulley (if possible). Consider trying a spray-on 'anti-slip" compound.

Squeaky noise could mean a bad pulley bearing.

Does squeaking coming from automoble water pump indicate water pump bearing is bad


If you take the belt off and there is no noticeable in/out, up/down, or side to side movement of pulley and there is no noise when rotating, a new belt may be all you need. Make sure you check ALL of the other belt driven components including idler pulleys and belt tensioner pulley. A worn tensioner can squeak also.

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.


The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

I own a 1999 dodge durango slt 5.9, I keep hearing squeaks from under the hood. i had replace the pollys, belts and the tension. but still squeaking needs help fast!


Do you mean pulleys? Squeaks or Squeals ? Try some belt dressing, or to locate the culprit remove one belt at a time to see what belts and or pulleys are making the noise...

Loud squeaking noise


dont spray that on the belt lol that stuff is flamable i think lol you most likely have bad phelt glides  they are pads that sit between the drum and the drum support and when that wears out it squicks or maybe you have a bad idler pulley which is what holds the belt maybe its rusty or something but most likelt its the pads

Dryer squeaking & Clunking noise


Your particular unit has quite a few things that could be making a real loud noise.....The idler pulley, blower wheel, rear drum rollers, front drum glides. Bottomline is you have to get in there and take the unit apart..vacuuming while there and if the unit is making such a noise, it will be obvious where the problem is.....If I can help further, I am here.......

Real bad squeaking noise in dryer


There should be a access panel in the back of the dryer to get at the belt and pully. You can check the belt operation from there. If that all seems good you will need to remove the front of the dryer and check the drum supports in the front and the rear support rollors.If you hear the noise more from the front I would say the front supports are the ones thst should be replaced. And yes you can purchase a repair manual for that dryer at a parts store. Good Luck
