I would replace the belt that turns the drum. It is probably wearing out and that is causing your noise.

Usually the squeaking noise that comes from a dryer is the IDLER. Usually if it squeaks or squeals it is worn out.
They are relatively easy to replace and usually not that expensive.

My Maytag Depenable Care Gas Dryer has become very squeaky when the barrell spins. i took off the front panel and sprayed WD-40 on the backsides with the Plastic wheels and it went away for about 10...


Probably best to grease the wheels (called drum support rollers) rather than use WD-40 because that strips away the lubrication. It will also pay to check the drum support glides under the front of the drum. Worst case you may have to replace the support rollers.

My dryer makes terrible noise when tumbling. It is a loud squeaking noise. Is it a belt that needs to be replaced?


Loud squeaky noises are usually a dry bearing--in this case, probably the one(s) that hold up the front of the drum. Open the top to inspect, then remove the front panel to replace or repair. Hope this helps!

My dryer is making a very loud squeaky noise. Is is the motor or something else?


Not the motor if it's still working. The noise is coming from the bushing that hold the drum in place.
