Generic comment:

Normally, these wheels are held on by a spring clip.

Are your wheels shot are are you having a bearing trouble?

I hope this helps you.

Neptune dryer makes noise


Check the blower to make sure it is properly secured on the motor shaft. Also check all of the bearings: motor, tensioner pulley and drum support rollers or drum bearings. You may have to disengage the belt to check the motor and tensioner.

Started squeaking a couple weeks ago now it is a loud growl rumbling.


Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Here is a link to the part you need.

My neptune dryer squeals when i turn it on ,i replaced the belt but noise is still there until it warms up,what is wrong


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Also check you drum belt for condition, sometimes they will wear and squeal as it is running till the belt gets hot.
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:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Has a loud squeeking noise


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug 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.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't 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 you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

You have to work from the front. Pull the top then the front then you will be able to see everything. Pretty self explanatory.
