Dryer drum squeaking when operating

If I turn drum by hand there is no resistance or noise but when clothes are tumbling there is a moderate to loud squeak that comes and goes as the drum turns.  The noise is louder at one point of the turn, not the same all the way around.  Belts or bearing, I haven't opened it up yet but what should I look for and where do I find possible fixes if it is not obvious?

Problem with tumble dryer that has started making loud noise.


Dryers are designed to operate in one direction. Some models turn clockwise and some turn counter-clockwise. Do not run it backwards. The direction of air flow will be impeded or reversed.

Why is my tumble dryer making a loud banging noise when on its a white knight model CL3A


Most of the time a tumble dryer will work like a dream but, as with all appliances, occasionally there will be technical problems.
If your tumble dryer is making a banging, whining (or other strange noise) it's best to diagnose and sort out the problem. It could be the result of a number of things, but what you certainly don't want to do is ignore it.
Here are the most common reasons for your tumble dryer making odd noises.
Coins and keys
One of the most common reasons for a banging, rattling or clanking is keys or coins left in pockets - so always check them before you put any clothes in the tumble dryer. More often than not you won't hear anything until the dryer cycle is in full spin.
Uneven surfaces
If the dryer is vibrating or shaking during spinning, check to make sure the dryer's sitting on a level surface. If it's fitted with height adjusters on the front legs, adjust them accordingly to ensure the machine is level as this will often reduce or eliminate the banging sound.
Drum bearings
If the tumble dryer is noisy when its turning and the whole appliance is shaking and rumbling, it could be indicative of a problem with the drum bearings, which help the wheels turn freely and easily.
The drum
If the banging noise is continuous when the drum is turning then it might be problem with the drum itself. If the noise is a metallic one, it could be the result of the drum scraping on something inside the machine. You could always check the drum visually for any marks or dents.
Motor bearings
If the tumble dryer is emitting a high-pitched screaming or whining noise it could be a sign that the motor bearings are wearing out.
Tension pulley wheels
If there's a squeaking noise coming from the dryer it could be the result of wear on the tension pulley wheels. This occurs more frequently on older models...or try this link..

Beko DRVS6W tumble dryer squeaks when the drum comes to a halt


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

GOD IS GOOD !!!!

Kenmore clothes dryer squeaks loud to get going


Sounds like a bearing or the drive belt. Try turning the empty drum by hand. If it sounds normal you probably just need to replace the belt. If it make strange sounds when you turn it by hand then its probably the bearing.

The belt isn't a big deal but a bearing probably is.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:
