First, stop using the dryer. It is telling you "I'm broken".

Several things can cause the noise you are describing:

1. Belt is slipping. Lost proper amount of tension on the tension pulley as spring has become weak.

2. Rear drum bearing has rubbed completely through and the drum is now riding on the metal support, This can cut into the drum support and trash it.

3. Tension pulley has got bearings that have gone dry (bad). Fix is to replace pulley.

4. Chance that the bearings in the motor itself have gone dry (Bad). Some you can oil and some are sealed. In either case, if they are making this noise, they are probably no good and motor needs replacing.

Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.

GE DRYER MAKES A HIGH SCREECHING NOISE WHEN DRYING BUT NOT EVERY TIME AND SOMETIMES DOES NOT START TILL HALF WAY THRU DRYING OR SOMETIMES NOT AT ALL?


More than likely a bad wheel and or drum support. However there are a lot of different GE dryers so the model might help to narrow down your problem. The model number should be inside the door of the unit.

New GE Profile dryer DPSE810EG7WT does not work. I wired exactly as old dryer. L1 L2 and neutral. The timer comes on but the machine does nothing! Thanks, Roger


if this is a gas dryer you would only need L1 OR L2.... NOT BOTH PHASES, this unit only needs the one leg of either A 120Volts or B 120Volts phase NOT BOTH PHASES 240 volts A.C. not 240 V.A.C. as in an electrically heated element will require to heat the system, NOW ...be careful now because one hot phase is connected where it shouldn't be!!!!

My GE Model# DBXR463EB0WW makes screeches and


Open the door and there are some screws holding the top on. Then you remove the front after removing a screw on each side. But first UNPLUG it and remove a cover on the lower back to get the belt off the tensioner.

This may sound silly but did you check (or have the means to check) for voltage at the outlet? The absolute bottom line is that if there is no power.......you get the rest.
