It sounds like the dryer belt is wore out or broken, you can usually order a replacement belt from the maker of your dryer at there website.

My maytag legacy dryer SDE305DAYW has a very loud squeeking noise when I start the dryer. After a minute or 2 it stops making the noise. Is this the belt?


While I would suspect the belt also, it could also be the drum bearing since they both could have the same symptoms. Suggest you try to turn the drum by hand and see if you can hear it then.

My dryer was making a loud squeeking noise while drying, now it won't start, I can hear it trying purring but than it does not start, help!


if you can hear the motor running,and if this unit does not have a belt shut off switch,the motor will run even if the belt is broken,the squeaking noise earlier was probably the belt starting to slip on the drum,replace the belt and drum glides when repairing,they are relatively inexpensive and as long as its torn down replace these too

The barrel makes a rubbing squeeking sound as it turns. Sometimes it is really loud and other times it doesn't make the noise.

The dryer is making a loud noise. Think its the


the belt that spins the dryers drum around has a belt tensioner located at the botton base of the body. If the roller bearing goes bad the sound you hear is caused by that. Replace the belt as well when replacing the roller or the whole tensioner if needed

Dryer makes loud squeaking noise when spinning


there are two possibilities for this question. 1) there is an idler roller that give the belt the correct tension . unplug dryer and remove idler roller see if it spins freely if not replace it @0 there are two drum rollers in back of machine thatdrum rides on remove drum it's self explanitory how to remove drum and very easy also. you can roll these wheels and check for free movement visually check them ,one or both should be worn out or the bearing in the wheel has failed before putting old or new wheels back sand the wheel shafts to get any gunk off them and that's about the only thing that can make a dryer squeek
