Re: Screechy Dryer

Hi yes i have a candy 6kg tumble dryer. It also screeches when turning. I have taken it apart and found its the bracket at the bottom holding the drum. It has deformed due to the weight of the drum and also the wet clothes added to it increases the pressure on this bracket. Dont know if its a design fault or really how to fix the problem?. Any solutions would be most welcome..

Extremely screeching noise when running?

Screeching is the metal-on-metal contact of the drum touching the rear of the unit while
turning - there's a (usually) felt cover gasket over the circular depression at the back of the dryer.
When this wears through (after a number of years/loads), you get the screeching of
metal-to-metal contact.
Problem: friction can heat up the metal so much that the remaining felt gasket material (and/or
accumulated lint or clothing) catches fire.
Fix: replace felt drum gasket.
The Maytag Atlantis MDE6400AY electric dryer has a DuraCushion(tm) dryer drum, so I'm
suspecting the "DuraCushion" has worn out at least at one point in its 360-degree arc.

LG Gas dryer has started to make weird screechy(?) noise - almost like the drum is rubbing against something. It's a couple years old - is this a maintenance thing or will I need to replace?

You will need to have the unit checked out by a qualified LG tech to diagnose your problem. Sounds like one of the roller guides may need to be replaced.
Good luck

I have a Maytag Heavy Duty Quiet Series 200 Dryer, and when I turn the dryer on is makes a horrible screeching sound. Like metal grinding against metal. What do I do?

That's easy, first of all you must have the Dryer on flat floor I mean verticly right. And try not to put too many clothes to get dried.

Dryer screeching and grinding when running

Hi !
The drive belt has become old and hard.
Just change the drive belt and all will be well.

Please don't try to lubricate the belt as may be suggested by many as cheap quick fix.

My dryer is making a screeching sound

Pretty cheap part, but the drum gotta come out. The plastic bearing has worn then and it is starting to get metal to metal contact. Open the door and remove the screws inside that are holding down the top. Get the front off. Take the belt loose and yank the drum out. Replace the bearing.
