Most likely it is either the belt or one or more of the wheels the drum rides on. a belt stretches as it ages and can start to make noise as it slips on the drum or motor pulley. wheels/bearing also can make noise as they wear. another possibility is the tensioner that takes up the slack on the belt. if the dryer is 5+ years old or older, i personally would replace all the wheels(4) and the belt and lube the tensioner and have it all set for many more years. wheels are about $40 on eBay and the belt is about $10. other good sites for getting the correct oem parts are repairclinic.com(not the cheapest but always good parts and good return policy) or appliancepartspros.com(good prices/oem parts)

How do I fix that irritating squeaking noise?


More than likely an idler pulley assembly issue. Best bet is to order a replacement. You might as well replace the drum belt too since it means a complete disassembly of the unit for proper access, cleaning and repair. If you don't have the know-how it's best left to an experienced technician.

Hi,


Sounds like your motor and/or pulley assembly are bad. Try turning the drum by hand. If it turns with some effort then you may have a drum bearing going bad. Does the squeaking sound start right away? Or does it start when the dryer warms up? If so then the bearing is going. If you can get to it spray WD40 for a quick fix.

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.

Phone wont vibrate


ok i dont know if this solves the problem for good, but i do know that it solves temperately. I went to phone settings and set the ring tone profile to vibrate. then i kept pressing the play button until the squeaking went away. It seems as though once the little moter in the phone goes at a constant speed it stops squeeking. the squeaking stops for a good while and is better than nothing. Someone tell me if this works for them. thanks ;]

Squeaking noise when printing


Probably, but you?re going to have to try to isolate the problem a little better. Typically this would involve removing side panels and such; however, you may just have a faulty consumable like a toner cartridge, fuser or more likely the transfer kit. I typically try to isolate the sounds location then try replacing some of the consumables in that area one by one. In your case if you can?t isolate the location I would start with the transfer kit since that has a greater chance of making noise. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate the posting when we?re done.
