I have an Amana (M# ALE643RBW), when started the dryer squeaks for the first 10 minutes of the cycle, then slows to a squeak every 7 minutes... why? Maybe a bit of lube?


I have the same problem. While I have not fixed it yet, I assume it is a drum roller. Most dryers have two 4 to 5 inch diameter drum rollers which hold up the dryer barrel in the back. These drum rollers are wheels which have rubber on the outside where they touch the drum and a metal hole in their middle. They turn on a metal rod which goes through their middle. As the inside of the wheel turns on the rod, the metal gets eaten away and they squeak. Replacing one or both drum rollers should fix the problem.

I have an Amana ALE643RBW drum needs manual assistance to tumble


If you remove the back panel you will be able see the drum rollers. There's a good chance they may be worn out. As long as you are replacing the rollers I would suggest replacing the belt at the same time.
Typically when the rollers wear out, the drum drops ever so slightly and the drum wears on the front and rear drum to cabinet seals.The added drag can cause a slow drum and squealing noises.
Good luck, let me know if there is anything further you need.

I have an Amana gas dryer that is squeaking. Does something need to be lubricated? If so can I do this myself?


Good Afternoon,
Lubricating would be just a temporary fix. You need to replace the drum rollers. If you think you can do it yourself I'll try to walk you through it. Once the rollers are worn they start squeaking and squealing at a very high pitch. This happens because the roller bushing spinning on the shaft has dried out from the heat. The weight of the clothes in the dryer plus the drum itself rests totally upon these rollers. If you decide to install new rollers clean up the shaft with lite emery cloth then wipe clean. Next apply "High Heat" Lithium Grease to the shaft and inside the new roller bushing, they will last 2 to 3 times longer. Let me know if you need guidance if you attempt to change the rollers yourself.
Have a great day!

Amana dryer belt?


Good Afternoon,
The main culprit here is the drum rollers, they need to be replaced and you have to remove the belt and drum to get to the rollers, so you might as well replace the belt also. If you are fixing this yourself do this: Clean the roller shafts with light Emery Cloth then wipe dry with a damp cloth. Get some "Hi Temp" Lithium grease, put it on the shaft and also on the inside bushing of the new rollers. Be careful not to get any grease on the threaded part of the shaft or on the rubber part of the roller.
I hope I helped you today and thank you for using FixYa!
