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.

It depends on what is making the squeaking noise. Could be drum bearing, drum slides, tensioner pulley, pr even the leveling legs sometimes squeak.

Dryer makes a squeaking noise when running


Check the following:
  1. Idler pulley - It keeps tension on the main drive belt and when it is worn, it can be squeaky and noisy. Replace then.
  2. Glides - Attached to the front bulkhead of the clothes drum for support. When worn, it can be noisy and squeaky.. Replace then.
  3. Rollers or wheels - They support the clothes drum. When they are are worn, you should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
  4. Blower wheel - It pulls air over the heat source through the clothes drum past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. It may wear out over time. If it is noisy, it may be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it.

Loud squeaky noise when dryer starts, noise stops after several minutes


I would replace the belt that turns the drum. It is probably wearing out and that is causing your noise.

Squeaky dryer


Depends how technical you are. More than likely it is the rollers (depending on who made the Kenmore). Go to www.apwagner.com and you can get the parts there. Or if you are unsure about taking it all apart, call for service.
