Question about Fisher and Paykel DG05 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Squeaking dryer drum when operating

I have a Fisher Paykel DG05 gas dryer. It is making a moderate to loud sqeaking noise when the drum is turning. I can turn it by hand, no squeak. The noise cycles as the drum turns, loudest at one point then again at each turn. Everything else is working. Not sure how to open it up to look inside- top or back. Is the top held with clips, I tried to pry it with a screwdriver but I didn't want to break anything.

The dryer is squeaking/squealing during operation. It is a high-pitched noise that is rather loud. It is also getting very hot. We vacuumed the lint bucket area behind the cover, which fixed the...


I am having a similar issue. I had a tech out to look at it and he recommended replacing the drum bearing and idler jockey pulley. ($419.95) Ouch. I am going to do this on my own. I ordered the part from paykelfisherparts.net. Part # 479332 Drum Bearing Kit $79.91.

Check here for more info. This was exactly what I found on my machine (DGGX1) http://fisherpaykelparts.net/techhelp/fisher-paykel-top-load-dryers-us-models/731-fisher-paykel-dggx1-top-load-dryer.html

I did not totally trust the repair dude. He was wierd and not very thorough. I can tell the bearing is bad, if there are still noises I will order up the jockey pully thing and see if I can figure that out.

Here is a link to the service manual. (https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B5If-wTgYWH5OGNkY2RmZDEtMWU4OS00MjgwLTg3OWEtMmRlZjY0N2I5MzYy&hl=en)

Its making a scrapeing sound when its tumbling . it seems the front of the drum is rubbing .


Sounds like it needs the slide bearings replaced. They are usually semicircular slides that the drum rides on made of neoprene or some other high impact plastic.

ED55 dryer making screeching noises


sounds like the rear tub bearing has worn out that would explain the noise and if it got too bad the bearing can break causing the drum to stick and not be able to turn
