Gradual squeaking increase

It started out only squeaking at the beginning of the cycle. This morning the squeaking was continuous and loud. Where is this coming from? I have the dryer door & front off.

Check the drum's roller bearings - they sometimes look like large rollerblade wheels. The may need to be replaced. They are relatively inexpensive, and can usually be found at your local appliance parts store.
Too, check for a  felt "ring" around the front of drum (if applicable). Again, if too worn, replace it.

VERY LOUD SQUEAL and SQUEAK right before the RINSE cycle. it's scaring me! thanks for your input.


Hi Margaret,
Does the tub/drum come to a complete stop prior to the rinse cycle beginning? Are there any belts or is it direct drive? Does it pump the water during the rinse cycle? If nothing is moving it could be the impeller on the pump is slipping, but likely it would have already come loose. The pump itself usually just fails completely without the squealing and squeaking part. If someone could be sure nothing is pushed up against any other moving parts it would be of help. It often happens when belts are involved and the drum is being turned it does just what you are describing, until it gets to speed.

What could be the cause of loud thumping during spin?


Sounds like one of the balancing springs either broke or came off.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

When I use my dryer it makes a very loud continuous squeaking sound..


There only a few reasons for squeaks or squeals and they all involve the belt. If it is still working well then investigate the belt, some dryers have a small panel on the back you can use to isolate the squeal. Do so using the air only cycle and without a load in the dryer, The belt is probably beginning to fray or the pulley is wearing out. A DIY person can do this job. Call around to locate the belt from an appliance parts store, it will probably cost around $30.00 Note: Use a camera to take pictures as you go to help you rebuild the unit.

Maytag dryer squeaks during cycle


if replacing the rollers didn't fix the squeak, you need to replace the teflon drum slides and drum gasket material. mine sqalled so much it would run you out of the room. now it's quiet.

Squeaking sound


Sounds as if your rollers are going bad.

You would have to remove the front panel and remove all the screws out of the front to lift top of dryer.

Do not remove any screws out of the back, it will release your drum stabilizer.

Dryer makes a loud squeaking/squealing noise while drying.


If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor
time.

Loud noise while agitating in wash cycle


If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.
