Squeaky GE Dryer

The squeak has gotten very loud. Husband says if it is working he can stand the squeak sound. Is this sound due to something unsafe that can cause a fire etc. He tried to take the back off but it is like impossible to get it apart..We have a new baby coming home and I am scared if fire. Can you help me so I can pass this info to the hubby? Thanks so much.

Greetings,
sight unseen, its hard to say exactly, but it is a place to start by looking at the belt pulley. these will make squeaking sound when bad or going bad..The drum rollers usually make a thumping sound, however, they can squeak too before failing..I would try and add a few drops of turbine oil to see if either get quiet..if so, replace when find which one is causing noise..Bruce

PS
its possible, the motor itself could cause this, but slim

Hey bdenton1957, what they need to know is how to get it apart before they can do anything you suggested! I wish I knew how to take it apart, I have a blower problem.

    PANELS

    take the top assembly off.
    that would be the display panel bezel, then the whole top.
    then remove the two top front screws and the screws inside the door.
    remove front panel.
    remove top inner panel, including the plastic strips, remove their screws and slide.

    DRUM
    remove belt from drum motor and pulley-take note how it goes back on!
    remove drum.

    before taking the drum out, remove the screws to the front drum panel and lift the panel up and out-AFTER undoing switch and light.

Squeaky GE Profile dryer model DPSE810EG5WT


There should be two wheels in the back that may have to be greased or replaced. There are two no friction pads that the drum rests on in the front that need to be replaced every once in a while. Go to searspartsdirect.com or appliancezone.com, with your dryer's serial number you should be able to find the parts.

Loud squeaking when you first turn on the dryer, it usually calms down after the dryer has gotten warm and the squeak is not so loud. Also tags from clothes are getting caught around the inside rim of the...


The problem is your bearing is nearing the end of its life. I just had mine apart and put a touch of axle grease on the drum main bearing, I also put a touch of this on the idler roller shaft (avoid getting any on the belt). Do not use petroleum jelly (Vaseline product) as it will turn into a liquid at the temperature the dryer runs at .

Squeaky dryer


Depends how technical you are. More than likely it is the rollers (depending on who made the Kenmore). Go to www.apwagner.com and you can get the parts there. Or if you are unsure about taking it all apart, call for service.
