HIGH PITCHED dryer SQUEAL but clothes are drying...


Had same problem that went away after replacing each of the drum roller wheel/bearing assemblies. (repairclinic.com) Not the easiest of jobs removing & replacing the drum, but a lot cheaper than a new machine.

When driving or starting the car i notice when using the brakes it makes a squeaking noise - not all the time think its possibly damp causing it as it was raining yesterday and it happened but no rain...


To address your first problem squeaking brakes aka "brake squeal", is most often casued by one or 2 things: "Pad vibration" or a "low brake warning sensor".

Pad vibation is usually caused by ineffective pad anti-rattling clips & hardware that allow the pads to vibrate at a super fast speed whenever the brakes are applied, thus causing a high pitch brake squeal. To correct this, replace all the pad hardware and anti-rattling clips and make sure you use a quality pad set that has anti-rattling plates attached to the backs of them. Weather conditions do affect brake squeal, that is why it seems to be worse at times.

Low brake warning sensor squeal occurs when your brake pads reach the point of replacement, the sensor attached to the pads scrapes on the rotor which produces a high pitch squealing sound to warn you it's time for new pads.

As far as your second problem goes (a knocking sound), I'll need more information about the problem before I can offer a possible cause (eg. happens on left or right turns, while going over bumps, at high or low speeds, accellerating...).

2004 Kia Sorento squealing from hood


I also have an 04 Sorento and LOVE it. I live in northern indiana where it is super cold in the winters and just this year my truck started squealing when temps got low and when the heat is on. My dad has also changed the belts, even though they looked fine. that didn't fix the problem. I was searchng for some answers and it seems that many people are having this same issue with sorentos. Its super annoying and like you sid embarassing! I love my truck, but HATE this sound! if you find anything else out, please post! Thanks!

Dryer works but makes high pitch noise


This probally the idler pulley, drum rollers, or a bearing hard to say until you take it apart and take a look. There is a good video on checking and replacing these parts at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html
Hope this helps

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW washer makes a squealing sound


i am sorry but i had this problem happen before with my customer maytag performa, what i found out is that the brakes become crystallized, causeing a squeaking noise, remember in agitation, the brakes stops the the drum from spinning, what i advise you to do is change out the breaks or take the brake pads and rub them with sand paper

thanks

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.
