HI, this will occur if the roller bearing assembly is damaged(excessive clearance). have the rollers replaced asap. I would also check the bet to ensure proper tension as well. a loose belt will degrade speed and, it will produce noise.

My dryer is squealing and won't spin


It sounds like the drum is frozen. The squealing is from the motor slipping on the belt. There may also be something keeping the belt from tightning. Try these links:

Why is my dryer making a squealing noise


It's hard to tell without hearing it or knowing where the noise is coming from. It could be a bearing or a belt or seal.

Really Bad Squeeky Noise


It could be a squeal from the dryer belt. It could be from a belt that has gotten loose, like you hear on a car sometimes when it first starts up, but usually they don't get loose. They just break. Maybe something has gotten jammed between the dryer drum and the interior of the dryer making it hard for the belt to turn the drum and so it is squealing. Does the drum turn by hand without too much force and without squealing?

Dryer squealing


Squealing on dryers is often caused by fibres accumulating around the front of the drum. Does pushing/twisting the dryer out of it's normal shape stop or change the squealing? Does it squeak if you turn it by hand?

If so unplug the machine and make sure it's cool, remove top and side covers (normally pretty easy) and give the inside a good vacuuming with a crevice tool, if you can get to the air chamber at the back of the drum that's where most of the offending fluff will be as it gets through the filter and fired into the back of the machine.
Put it back together any you're done.

Kenmore series 80 Gas Dryer, in back of the dryer there is a fan at the bottom that squeals when I turn the dryer on. Is this easy to replace or oil to resolve the squealing. Suggestions are...


that fan runs off the motor shaft and can be lubed with some spray lube,, be sure that its not the belt thats squealing, check it for cracks, and bare spots
