Yes indeed.
I have an XLS and it started squeaking, but the glide board is not the source of the squeak on my total gym, to check this try the following, put board to its highest setting then sit on the top of the board facing the machine with your legs over the end. Sit upright so you can see the columb as you pull on the handles.

On my machine as the handles are pulled it causes the chrome arms that that the pulleys are attached to, to flex slightly towards you. This part is lined with a plastic inner piece that
squeaks as the outer flexes.
Its a minor design problem, to fix this you need to stop the flexing. This can be achieved cheaply by a carefully cut piece of wood, functional but doesn't look too flash, or a nicely shaped metal plate painted black or chromed (your choice) drilled onto the face of the chromed slider will do the job, do not do this yourself unless you have some engineering or metalworking skills. Try a block of wood first to verify if that is the problem with your machine.
Keep the tracks clean, a light coat of silicon spray on them and the wheels and bearings also worth trying. If the squeak is from the actual bearings replace with new ones from Hucks.
Good Luck
Pete

No picture and makes a squeaky noise when turned on


A Philips with the high pitched whine or squeaky sound has a short usually on the deflection board (the middle board) which can be anything from a cap to the high voltage transformer.

It indicates the set has a short and is in shutdown.

How do I stop certain parts of my hardwood floors from squeaking? It's in an up stairs bedroom .


The good news about your squeaky floor is that you have many options for repairing it. Most home improvement stores sell squeaky floor "kits" that may be all you need. Before even heading to the store, try pouring baby powder into the squeaky spot(s). This will absorb the space between the boards and may be all you need to finally get some peace..

My Maytag Depenable Care Gas Dryer has become very squeaky when the barrell spins. i took off the front panel and sprayed WD-40 on the backsides with the Plastic wheels and it went away for about 10...


Probably best to grease the wheels (called drum support rollers) rather than use WD-40 because that strips away the lubrication. It will also pay to check the drum support glides under the front of the drum. Worst case you may have to replace the support rollers.

My tumble dryer squeaks really loudly when its going and seems to be taking ages to dry - any idea?


Check the following:
  1. Idler pulley - It keeps tension on the main drive belt and when it is worn, it can be squeaky and noisy. Replace then.
  2. Glides - Attached to the front bulkhead of the clothes drum for support. When worn, it can be noisy and squeaky.. Replace then.
  3. Rollers or wheels - They support the clothes drum. When they are are worn, you should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
  4. Blower wheel - It pulls air over the heat source through the clothes drum past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. It may wear out over time. If it is noisy, it may be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it.

Squeaky drum


The drum rides on felt glides in the front, rollers in the back. The glides can wear out, but more often the rollers just need new grease. It must be high temperature grease. A lot of times the rollers are held in place by snap rings, that means you need snap ring pliers. Time for a technician. Besides, it's a pain to take a dryer apart. While apart, vacuum the insides.
