Inglis dryer is squealing like a belt loose. it subsides during cycle but a burnt rubber smell is very prominent when finished

Replace the belt - it is old and worn out. The belt is made of rubber and is slipping, causing the smell and squeak. The belt heats up and becomes more flexible after the dryer runs a while; this is why the squealing stops.

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?

Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.

Maytag gas dryer squealing

Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.

Kenmore 400 dryer squealing noise

A little lubricant on the pulleys near the belts will go along way. Its vereasy to access these parts front the back of the machine with a 1/4 hex head screwdriver.

Dryer not working

Sounds like two problems.

First, the screeching noises are probably from your belt tensioner wearing out and needing replacement. Or the belt is not properly seated on the tensioner and needs readjustment. No biggie there.


If you have to keep the start button pressed for the dryer to keep spinning, you may have bad centrifugal switch. That switch is built into your dryer motor. Therefore, the motor will have to be replaced... BIGGIE!
