Constant loud squeaking


Squeaking is normally caused by a bad bearing or a slipping drum belt.

Drum initially starting squeaking. now it will


The squeak was from a bad bearing in the belt tensioner.
replace the roller assembly for the tensioner and the belt too.
The roller has a bearing in it that has gone bad causing this problem

Our whirlpool gas dyer is squeaking what could be the problem


Three things: the front and rear drum bearings and the drive belt+ it's idler pulley. The drum's front bearing (s) is/are the usual source of squeak. Some front bearings are just flat plastic surfaces mounted to the opening in the front panel, other types use a series of rollers that support the drum front. In the plastic strip types, if not worn through to metal, merely require cleaning of the plastic strips and the mating drum surface. The roller types usually have an internal bearing problem and should be replaced if light oiling doesn't help. In both cases, the top must be removed, then the front pulled back enough to service the bearing (s). Hope this helps!

I have an Amana (M# ALE643RBW), when started the dryer squeaks for the first 10 minutes of the cycle, then slows to a squeak every 7 minutes... why? Maybe a bit of lube?


I have the same problem. While I have not fixed it yet, I assume it is a drum roller. Most dryers have two 4 to 5 inch diameter drum rollers which hold up the dryer barrel in the back. These drum rollers are wheels which have rubber on the outside where they touch the drum and a metal hole in their middle. They turn on a metal rod which goes through their middle. As the inside of the wheel turns on the rod, the metal gets eaten away and they squeak. Replacing one or both drum rollers should fix the problem.

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

hi tecate.

This can be a few things, either bearing,transmission, drivebelt or motor.
Start with the drive belt. Take it off and see if the drum when rotated makes the same squeak as befor when you apply a little pressure to the drum.
If it does not do it it can be the tension in the belt. Or the belt is gone HERE are drawings and partslist. You can also obtain the parts here
