Get after it, while the issue is small...

So, squeaks, as compared to scraping sound....You did not mention the brand, and my telepathy is malfunctioning, so dryers have several types of bearings.

UNPLUG before you do anything, there is live power all over ...

I suggest that you release the belt and spin the drum... Still noise, disassemble until you find a dry bearing... Many dryers use oil empregnated brass bushings, they dry up and will seize.

High squeak when dryer is drying


You don't mention the year make and model of dryer, but most often it is a dry bearing or bushing, or the drum is rubbing on a piece of metal that is supposed to have a nylon glide attached. It would help if you could do a "mechanic's stethoscope" to the machine to help yourself locate the source of the squeak. A "mechanic's stethoscope" is a long screwdriver or the equivalent. You put your ear to the wood or plastic handle and you put the other end in various place on the machine to try to locate the loudest squeal. When you take the whole machine apart, the source of the problem should be readily apparent.
\Be blessed.

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

While drying for short time the dryer starts to squeak


Probably a dry bearing
.You would have to gain access into the dryer to establish which bearing/s it is.
You would then need to see if lubricating the bearing/s, would cure the squeak..
If it does not, then you may have to fit a new bearing/s.\
Hope this helps.
