    My dryer is doing the same thing........started making the squeal just occasionally, now does it almost every time used. Cannot yet afford to get a repair person out, and hoping someone has a do-it-yourself solution or ideas on this.

    I have the same loud squeaking/squealing problem with my dryer, it's during the entire cycle. Impossible for me to figure out how to even clean all the lint that has fallen down in the door, as there seems to be no way to open it to get to the lint. Called in a professional to make sure I don't create a "fire hazard" for future uses.

If you can take your dryer apart, you'll have to take the drum out and lubricate the bearing that is located in the center under the drum while there check wellness of your heat element if located there. Anyway use high temp grease on this bearing looks more like a ball

Maytag electric dryer drum starts and stops turning but keeps going


Hello,
I would think you are on the right track, possibly a belt, I would also check all the rollers or idlers while you are replacing the belt.
Enjoy and best wishes

Washer squeals in rinse or spin


When the washer is in the final spin cycle and starts to sqeal, just pour a little water through the drawer about half of a glass full usually does the trick. What apparantly happens is that the connection/seal between the big grey rubber seal and the stainless steel drum has dried out due to the centrifugal effect of the spin cycle and it needs to be wetted to keep the sealed area lubricated and cool. The squealing is a result of the dry rubbing of these parts during the spin cycle.

Squealing!!


the noise is coming from the drum axle bushing that allows the drum to spin on it's axle. Gain access to the rear of machine and apply some high temperature grease that is found in automotive parts stores to the bushing. run it while observing spinning drum at rear for any possible other problem where squeal can be found such as drum slides.
