A squeak can also be a slipping belt or something caught between the drum bearings usually the front but could be the back one.

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.

The dryer squeals extremely loud when drying. It sounds like metal scraping against metal.It appears the drum may be rubbing against something. I have lubricated all moving parts.

Dryer makes a high pitch squeaking noise


This could be a dry support bearing, a dried out drum seal or something stuck in the drum seal. If I could hear it I would know better where to start. Listen and try to locate the source from the above list. It could be the belt but that is not as common.

Dryer makes loud squeaking sound when spining


how old? Dryers squeak for one of 3 reasons..bad belt, bad motor or drum rubbing against dryer framework.
run it empty...intermittent squeaks usually are the drum...something's bent
continuous- is there any burning smell? If so, most likely the motor, if not, possibly the belt.
Open the top (most have screws or can just be pried open) and watch it run...identify the source of the sound if possible

try spraying the belt and motor with a little wd-40 and let it dry for a day, then try again.
If that doesn't help, repairman or new/used dryer...probably better off to find a decent one off of craigslist b4 paying to repair an already faulty machine

Kenmore Dryer 110 is making a loud squeaking noise.


Only a few things will make that noise. The squeaking is caused by a moving part having trouble turning while rubbing against a fixed part.
  1. The idler pulley is worn
  2. The drum support rollers are hard turning on their shafts
  3. The felt seals at the front or back of the drum is worn allowing metal to metal contact while turning
  4. An article has fallen into the housing around the blower wheel and the wheel is rubbing on it.
Listen for the frequency of the sound. The drum rollers and drum felts will squeak at the frequency of the tub turning. The idler pulley turns much faster as does the blower wheel. Knowing this will help pin down the cause.

Inglis Citation dryer still squeaks


just an idea.....try to match the squeak to the revolutions of the drum or the guide pulley.
if the squeak is fast it is probably a guide pulley or a roller that the drum rides on. if the squeak is farther apart then the drum is wearing in one spot and rubbing on something. check for wear spots around the drum area.
hope this helps.........jay

My Dryer squeeks while rinning


If it is a constant squeak no ups or downs then its the bearings in the motor that turns the drum. If the sound is not monotone, meaning up and down squeaks, then the drum is rubbing something foreign.
