SOURCE: My tumble dryer squeaks really loudly when its

Check the following:

  1. Idler pulley - It keeps tension on the main drive belt and when it is worn, it can be squeaky and noisy. Replace then.
  2. Glides - Attached to the front bulkhead of the clothes drum for support. When worn, it can be noisy and squeaky.. Replace then.
  3. Rollers or wheels - They support the clothes drum. When they are are worn, you should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
  4. Blower wheel - It pulls air over the heat source through the clothes drum past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. It may wear out over time. If it is noisy, it may be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: I have an Amana NDE2330AYW dryer. It squeaks

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS If your a Handyman then this will be no problem to you. Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication. If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7.

SOURCE: front load dryer make a horrid squeaking sound as

There are nylon or cloth type guide bushings(bearings) at the front of the drum which may be worn. The drum rides on these to keep it suppurted. You can replace from retailer and or try to lubricate with silicone spray.

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

The dryer squeaks loudly


The dryer has been over loaded too often. Try to determine if squeak is from the front or back. The felt pad dirty. If it is from the bottom, then the tension roller is binding and needs lubrication.

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.


I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.
