Question about Bosch Axxis WTA 3510 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer often squeaks during operation

I've got a 4 year old WTA 3500. Great little machine. However, it has recently developed a squeak. It doesn't squeak non-stop for each use but does squeak each use probably for about 50% of the time it runs. I've tried to isolate it to no avail.

Has anyone had a similar problem?

Addison your issue is with the rear panel. The 3500 was the first generation of this unit. The rear support of the drum goes thru the rear panel and this has bent in. Order a new rear panel and this should resolve this issue.

It may need oiled, or a new belt.

Dryer just started making a loud growling sound while in operation. Prior to this, it had begun to take extra long to dry a load of laundry. The dryer is about ten years old.

The squeaking is coming from the rollers that the drum rides on. If you take the model number to a local appliance service store they will have the parts and be able to direct you on replacing them.

Intermittent Squeaking

You know how when the pads on your car get worn they start that noise? Well the bearing that holds the tub has a metal bracket. When that plastic wears down it begins to makes those noises. If left alone the metal bracket will eventually cuut into that drum bearing like a guillotine. I have pictures. Have the women and small babys leave the room: Click (HERE)

GE Profile Dryer Model # DPSR473EWOWW SQUEAKING

If the squeaking has been going on for only a short time, you may be able to get by with only replacing the rear drum bearing, but if it has been going on for some time you should replace the drum bearing kit part # WE25M40. Also be sure to check that the front drum slides are ok, especially the one on the left side of the front drum support, as this one wears out faster. Drum slides #
