Loud screeching noise from dryer.

The dryer was working fine and then during a drying cycle it started making a very loud noise when it would rotate. Did a belt brake or ??? What should I look for?

    Its on certain parts of the rotation I believe. I will double check that b/c I turned it off as soon as I heard it.

    I'm pretty sure that it's during certain parts of the rotation. I will double check b/c I shut it off immediatley after hearing it.

Sounds to me like the nylon pieces that isolate the drum from the front of the door are gone, you may want to open it up and take a look at it. Is it an old dryer? Its either that or I suppose it could be the bearing in the middle of the back but I dont think it would be in only certain parts of a rotation, it would be all. Im sure the drum probably just ate through the nylon seperator.Theres not much else that only makes noise part of the time.. and theres not many moving parts.
Im not sure if there are replacement pieces for this but you can google it.

My maytag neptune dryer mdg5500aww is making a screeching sound. It is drying the clothes but it is getting louder by the day. What part needs to be replaced?


There are 2 wheels in the rear that the drum rotates on - one could be binding. The tensioner has a wheel, check it for rotation. Belt slipping? Check motor for operation - check that plastic blower isn't rubbing in its box. Dryers are easy to disassemble - check YouTube for procedure.

GE Model WHDSR209D2WW makes unbearable loud metal Screeching noise


ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.
