SOURCE: Ventilation question regardingHAIER HLP140E

Hi I own this dryer and you have two choices for venting it. One reason I originally bought it is because you can run it safely without venting it to the outside. That's a huge plus for many small apartments or a dorm room etc. For that option you purchase a 'ventless' kit from Lowe's or Home Depot, can't remember the exact cost but definitely less than $20. It works very well, but will add some heat to your living space (nice if you're in NY, less nice in Miami). It didn't add a lot of heat to the space, but later on I ended up installing a vent through the outside wall (which was much easier to do than I thought) because I was doing some drywall work in that area anyway. That vent is also very inexpensive, maybe $10. The standard vent kit opening will be for 4" whereas this dryer's vent opening is 3" - but the dryer comes with a piece that makes the 3" to 4" transition for you. This is a very convenient unit because it only needs 110v (standard household outlet) instead of the usual 220 (or is that 240?). The main thing that will help you be happy with it is just to have the realistic expectation that it takes about twice as long to dry clothes (60-90 min) because it's on lightweight power. But it does a very nice job, and we love the little washing machine we got with it too!

SOURCE: High-pitched squeaking during operation

Your problem sounds like drum rollers may be in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.Also remove the screws holding the lint filter in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.

That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

Haier HLP140E Electric 110V dryer exhaust filter.

I have had this dryer for 4+ years and finally have used the "floor vent" filters that come 12" x 4" and cut two of them to fit. It's a pain because unlike the round design they can "fall out" when you snap the filter back in. Be that as it may, they work well because you cannot buy the black round wool filter anywhere.
