SOURCE: how do i open a kitchenaid dryer to inspect drum assembly. its squeaking bad

The way to visually see if the belt has broken or not is to 1) unplug the dryer. 2) Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer. 3) take the two phillips head screws out where the lint trap is. 4) with a flat head screwdriver pop the top of the dryer up by sliding the driver inbetween the top and front of the dryer and pry upwards a little. 5) You'll now see the drum, if the belt is not around it its broken, and if it's visible try to lift it. If it taught, its good. IF THE BELT IS BROKEN OR LOOSE CONTINUE TO NEXT STEPS 6) on the left and right upper inner sides of the dryer you will find two screws, one on each side, remove these and the front should be easlily remove. 7) once off you'll be able to easily see the motor, the belts idler pulley, and everything else.
If the dryer is a DUET or HE2 or HE3 style, (dryers that match the front loader) then the way you take the top off is a little different. For these machines, there are 3 to 4 screws located on the top back side you'll need to remove, and then the dryer top can be slid back and removed

Squeaking and clothes get caught in door


UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers is in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum,belt, and front seal. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
If your front seal is bad, it will cause clothes to be caught, replace it if it is needed, or reinstall if it has come out of place.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

I hope this helps

Hot Point electric dryer squeaking when in use.


It could be one of the pulleys on the bottom of the drum. Take the top and front panels off of the dryer. Get some WD-40. Now the hard part, there is no easy way, but put your right arm in underneath the drum (the right side of the drum)and spray the pulley the best you can. This is the hardest, but the easiest way to fix this problem, without having to take the entire dryer and drum apart. I had the similar problem. I didn't completely fix the problem, but the squeak has been significantly quieted.

Squeaking sound


Sounds as if your rollers are going bad.

You would have to remove the front panel and remove all the screws out of the front to lift top of dryer.

Do not remove any screws out of the back, it will release your drum stabilizer.

Real bad squeaking noise in dryer


There should be a access panel in the back of the dryer to get at the belt and pully. You can check the belt operation from there. If that all seems good you will need to remove the front of the dryer and check the drum supports in the front and the rear support rollors.If you hear the noise more from the front I would say the front supports are the ones thst should be replaced. And yes you can purchase a repair manual for that dryer at a parts store. Good Luck
