Yes the felt is cushion and it sounds like it might be the blower fan sometimes they get off balance or just simply out off wack and the blades will rub on the housing

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:

I have a dvl223Eb6ww dryer..heats great but started making a scratching noise that seams to get louder as the dryer gets hot..what could this be..we took it apart and the belt seams fine heating element...

Sounds like you have bearings problems that need need grease. Normally the drum rests on two separate bearings up front and one located at the drum center at the rear. Since you know how to take it apart you should be able to locate the bearings. A mall amount of general purpose grease will do the trick. The scatching noise may come from loose object floating around, may be a shirt button ? investigate.

Good luck and good repairs. A dryer repair is not too difficult since you have already checked to condition of the belt...Here an extra tip for the performance of your dryer, always clean the screen air filter with soap an water to remove the invisible screen deposit by the Fabric Freshner Sheet also called Fleecy. This will allow air flow to exhaus the dryer more freely.

My GE electric dreyer, DHDSR46EGWW, is making squeaking noise and a grinding noise. My husband took is apart last night and put back together. When he started it the noises came back and he said it...

It could be the rear bearing or if not it have your honey take it apart again and inspect the rear rollers, if they turn freely then inspect the front bearing assy it is on the the door and if it looks worn down then it is allowing excessive pressure on the rest of the unit .

I have a GE dryer that started making really load screatching noises. I took it apart and replaced the motor and the belt. It ran for a few minutes and started making the same noise. I am not sure what...

The idler pulley bearing might be the trouble. If the dryer has an idler pulley that tensions the belt, check this bearing in the idler pulley. If it is a bush type, just oiling it might be all that is required. Also make sure there isnt any piece of wire etc in the drum bearing. You might have to take the drum out to check this. However the most likely cause of a SCREACHING noise is the idler.

Dryer making a loud skreetching noise

Sounds like either a Frigidaire or model 417 kenmore. If it is the rear bearing has gone bad. Usually just the bearing cup needs replacing as long as you don't forget to use the proper grease.

A new GE dryer

If the dryer is new, you can call for factory service. They will send a tech to your home at no cost. If the dryer is over one year old, you can try replacing the slides on the front of the dryer and the rear bearing, but if still in warranty any repair you attempt yourself will void your warranty. So let those factory trained people take care of that for you. Save your money and let GE pay. Call
1(800)GE-CARES. Funny number. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me.

If you can get it apart, you should be able to fix it yourself. This is a tricky task though (I've seen customers spend hours just trying to change a belt, which you'll have to remove), so you may want to pay the money and have someone come out.

It is hard to say without hearing the noise for myself, but my best educated guess would be that the dryer drum bearing needs to be lubricated. You should lubricate it with white lithium grease, about 1.5 ounces of it.

In order to do this, you will have to take the dryer front off, remove the belt from underneath the drum and then remove the drum. You will see a bearing on the backside of the drum (looks like a post with a ball on it). You will see where that inserts on the back wall of the dryer. You should put the grease in the insertion point, then put the dryer back together again.
