Remove the back panel and check the brake to make sure that it is not staying locked to the drum.

    The brake is a metal piece that looks like a arm or a handle that is located on one of the sides of the drum. Different for all models. You will be able to see like black marks or scratch marks on the side of the drum

Model 69822 is less than 8 years old. Screeches loudly for about a minute on startup. Runs fine after that and dries the clothes.


The screeching is probably a slipping belt. This can be caused by"

1. Glazed or worn out belt.
2. Improper belt tension.
3. Overloaded dryer
4. Bad drum bearing

If it is used heavily (often), I would assume #1 which is the cheapest and quickest fix. You can investigate #2 at the time of replacement.

My maytag neptune dryer mdg5500aww is making a screeching sound. It is drying the clothes but it is getting louder by the day. What part needs to be replaced?


There are 2 wheels in the rear that the drum rotates on - one could be binding. The tensioner has a wheel, check it for rotation. Belt slipping? Check motor for operation - check that plastic blower isn't rubbing in its box. Dryers are easy to disassemble - check YouTube for procedure.

GE DRYER MAKES A HIGH SCREECHING NOISE WHEN DRYING BUT NOT EVERY TIME AND SOMETIMES DOES NOT START TILL HALF WAY THRU DRYING OR SOMETIMES NOT AT ALL?


More than likely a bad wheel and or drum support. However there are a lot of different GE dryers so the model might help to narrow down your problem. The model number should be inside the door of the unit.

Obnoxious screeching sound when the drum turns. Short consistent screech on revolution, which turns into one long non-stop screech. Stops after 45 seconds or so, then starts all over again with longer...

Dryer makes screeching noise..dries the clothes ..seems the tub is loose


at the top of the drum there is a felt pad with 3 white nylon glides attached to it. if this is worn, and it does wear, it will make a screeching noise like you described because it changes the postion of the drum and it will also appear like it is loose. you can purchase this part as a kit along with the glue to hold it on and it is not an expensive part. hope this helps.

Dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.


The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.
