Question about Dryers
Ok so my tumble dryer works but once it gets hot after say 10 minutes it starts making a loud metal squeaking noise. If I open it up and move the drum slowly I can hear the noise but can't work out what is making it do it. Strangely it doesn't always make the noise even when it's been going for 30 mins and hot either but more often then not it does. It also does not make the noise if I let it cool down and start it up again. Any ideas?
I had a problem similar to this on my Frigidaire dryer. I found that there is a felt ring that goes around the drum inside. This acts like a washer to prevent the drum from rubbing on the housing. On mine, the felt somehow got pushed in some and the drum was squeeking as it rotated. I had to order a whole new drum and replace it since on my model it was part of the drum.

This could be a worn out or loose belt. You can get to it through an access panel on the back of the machine. Just make sure the power is disconnected first! Hopefully a replacement belt will be easy to obtain in your area. Regards

THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible
