Squeeking / squeeling from Candy cc2 17 smart dryer

I got an 18 month old drier and would like to know how to solve a squeeking / squeeling problem - it only does in one direction and it sounds quite loud - it has always been a 'noisy' drier form new - the belt is ok and tight - The filters are clean - the difficulty is getting to the motor and tensioner device - i've got some technical knowledge but cant see a way to get to them please help andy and di Loud squeaking/grinding noise stared in one direction only, but gradually built up to all the time! Seems OK when cool though, ie when first switched on and cooling down at the end of cycle. Drier still works very efficiently but this sound is driving me mad! Any suggestions??

    Yes I rang for an engineer and he charged me £40 to oil the pulleys! Never mind, he showed me how to do it for next time, they are set into the dryer about 6 inches so a long screwdriver is needed to trickle oil onto the wheels. And no squeaking!!

Hi,well if its not the belt,there should be two rollers in front of drum at bottom,they are wearing out or need oiled.as for getting to motor and belt,well not sure of model,but most of dryers,you will have to take front off of dryer,then remove belt the tumbler.you should be able to reach tension,and release it to get slack in belt. hope this helps. duane.

Maytag dryer squeeks when I first turn it on. Started about a couple of weeks ago. Squeek would go away after a few minutes, however now it is continuous.


Hi, The most popular squeeling issue in the Maytag dryer is caused from the idler pulley. The idler pulley keeps tension on the belt. The next possible problem could be the 2 rear drum rollers. These rollers are fastened to the rear bulk head and they support the drum. The third possibility is the motor bearing. Usually, when the motor starts to squeel, the motor will shut off suring the cycle and will not restart until the motor cools down.
I would advise you to change the idler pulley as well as the rear support rollers. The cost for these parts are very costly and a little preventive maintainance goes a long way.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.


Thanks
Vic

Mower squeeking - mowing as usual, and it's squeeking, checked oil, it has oil in it, what else should I check, mower 1 year old, I've done minimal maintenance on it. and can't find my owners manual.


Does it squeek when at an idle, or when driving, or cutting? Does it cut fine? I would check the belts and pulleys and blades for extra play. I had a mandrel bearing go bad on my ys4500 (also about a year old) and the first symptom was a squeeling sound when the blades were enguaged. Play in the mandrel caused the belt to squeek at the pulley that turns the blade. It also cut some nice gouges in my yard due to a floppy blade. I hope that this helps, I got the answers to my problem here on fixya.com.

I believe that one can find a downloadable .pdf version of the owners manual with a quick google search.

good luck

GE evolution dryer has intermitent squeeling!


Is the belt slipping? Check and see if it is worn. Open door, remove 2-4 screws at 12:00 position, lift up cover. The belt is the little band wrapped around the big thing.
