Squeaks from drum area during operation

I have a 2004 Bosch Nexxt clothes dryer which squeaks during operation. The noise seems to be coming from the drum. This is a model WTMC 3300US. Any suggestions?

    This is the second request for a dryer that squeaks during operation late in the drying cycle. Richard

    The repair technician dis-assembled and examined our Nexxt dryer and, even after hearing the noise, said there was not a problem. He said that replacing the felt drum liner may solve the problem. However, the slipping fan assembly does sound more plausible. I am going to call Bosch and discuss this with them, though, based on my past experience with Bosch, I do not expect them to be too helpful.

    Squeaks loudly when dryer heats up. Technician replaced rear bearing assembly and it did not help.

  • Anonymous Sep 24, 2008

    I have the same problem and it's very loud at times! The repair company has been out 4 times so the service man called Bosch. He was told to replace the motor in the lower front right of the dryer. Bosch also told him they have had several complaints about the nose. It would have been nice if Bosch had at the very least informed their service companies of the problem!

We have a Bosch Nexxt dryer and it, too, squeaks during operation. We have not been able to find a permanent solution for this problem although we've had the repairman come out 3 times now. We have however found a temporary solution that lasts for about a week. We spray Static Guard (in an aerosol can) in the inside lining of the dryer... kind of in the lip of the front. (You shuld be able to feel it if you put your hand right inside the door.) We've just been spraying the static guard all the way around that area and the squeaking stops! Hope this works for y'all. May not be permanent but at least it stops the annoying sqeaking!

There is a fan in the dryer that has a tendancy to crack around the shaft. The symptom would be, you start the dryer and it sounds fine. Then after about 5-10 minutes it starts squeaking. This is because when the dryer gets hot, fan starts slipping on the shaft. This will require a new fan blade assemby.

    My Bosch dryer does the same squealing after heating up repairman has been out 9 times and replace almost all the working parts of a dryer and it still squeals... He called Bosch and according to them they have never had or heard of the problem..that can not be true... so guess I will just let it squeal until it dies and then replace but NOT with a Bosch....thought they made a good product guess I was wrong....

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.


I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

Squeaks from drum area during operation


Hi there!

I think it is the drum main bearing that has started to sieze.

If it is not this, then the drive belt may need replacement.

If this leads to a solution, please take a moment to accept. Thank you.

What could be a cause of water leaks from Bosch Nexxt 500 gas dryer?


Since there is no water lines connected to a Bosch Nexxt WTMC 6500 gas dryer, the water leak has to be from excess water from the clothes you are trying to dry. Which is probably more the problem.

Does your washer leave an excessive amount of water in the clothes after the spin cycle?
