Re: Squeaking!!!!

Asko T701 dryer,
Squeaking loudly for the full dry cycle
Warrant wet out last year. We complained to the repair man that it was squeaking prior to the warrant running out, he said they just do that. It is now very loud and I know noise = friction, and I am concerned. I looked into it and sprayed some silicon on the belt, but it sounds like the front gasket is the problem.
Is this a common problem, and is there a common fix?

Re: Squeaking!!!!

Depending on the age of the dryer, there is a rear bearing that needs to be replace if its is an older dryer. if its new 10yrs or newer the there is a front bearing support that should be replaced

I have worked on some dryers of my own. The first thing I do is either purchase or go to the library and look at the maintenance/repair manual. These manuals have trouble shooting sections that are very helpful. Also, google it. I found several sites that appear to be very helpful. Squeaking is usually dry bearings some located in the rear of the unit, worn belt, worn carrier bearings or belts.

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.

The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

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.

Maytag dryer squeaks during cycle

How do you replace the glides/slides? I have a Maytag dryer that's squeaking, took off front and it's clear it's the glides. Found where to buy them just need directions for replacing. Anyone know how?

To change the glides you have someone lift the drum--after taking off the front panel--and pull out the glides. We bought the glides locally and just ordered on line the felt pads that go under the glides, as one was missing. So I haven't actually completed the project but should easily be able to once the felt pads arrive.
