Squeaking noise on the Duet GHQ91

When the drum spins at slow speed we hear a squeak from the back. I removed the back cover and noticed black dust on the bottom, support bar and on the back panel. I do not see any signs that the belt is rubbing anything. Bought in 2004 sat in storage for 6 months in 2006. Possible Belt replacement? It does not look very worn but I have not compared it to a new one. Any suggestions?

Duet washer making a loud noise on spin cycle, it squeaks on low spin and then when it gets up to high speed, it is really loud. What could this be?


In most cases it is something that is sticking between the drum and the housing. Check inside the boot by the door. If that is not helpful move the drum by hand and listen to see if you can locate the area of the noise.

Constant loud squeaking


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

I'm getting a squeaking noise from my Windchaser WCUFLTI fan when it stands upright. If I lean it against the wall, the noise stops. I'm in the process of dismantling it, but can't get the back cover off....


Not sure on the squeaking. Mines squeak to on the low and medium speed, but not on high speed. As for the cover, remove the three 'visible' screws. There are two screws in the handle, but you have to remove the plugs that are hidding the screws. Use a thin flat blade screw driver to pry the plugs. Then, the screws will be visible for removal.

Once the all the screws are off from the back cover, using a flat screw driver depress the tab above the handle; then, gently '****' downwardly (assuming the fan is standing) to remove the back cover.

Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals


Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.

A SQUEAKING NOISE WHILE RUNNING AND A FINE BLACK POWDER ON THE BACK PANEL


Drum bearings shot and this slowing down the drum with the motor running at full speed will eat the belt. Change both at same time.

Dryer makes loud squeaking noise when spinning


there are two possibilities for this question. 1) there is an idler roller that give the belt the correct tension . unplug dryer and remove idler roller see if it spins freely if not replace it @0 there are two drum rollers in back of machine thatdrum rides on remove drum it's self explanitory how to remove drum and very easy also. you can roll these wheels and check for free movement visually check them ,one or both should be worn out or the bearing in the wheel has failed before putting old or new wheels back sand the wheel shafts to get any gunk off them and that's about the only thing that can make a dryer squeek

Squeak in Kenmore HE 2plus front load washer when drum spins


Squeaking noises are hard to find unless u open it and pin point where its coming from.. you can open the back cover if you are comfortable doing so.. let it run to see if you can heard... sometimes the bolt holding the pulley to the drum is loose and need to be tighten. Other possible is the shocks came loose or when install new.. the shipping materials were not remove..

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
