Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals

It's a dll2650 bfl wh, and the squeak is coming from the back. If i press on a square panel (back side, very center) the squeaking stops until I remove my hand. Does anybody know why my dryer is squeaking, and what I could do to fix said squeak?

Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

If your a do it your self-er, UNPLUG the dryer, take off panels, drum should come out, doesn't need to be right out but you need to get to the little shaft it rides and spins on and Vaseline both the shaft and the socket it goes in.

Black marks gets on clothes as if they're getting caught in something.


Our Hotpoint DLL2650 has the same symptom. A bearing has been squeaking for over a year. Now one of the drum rollers makes a grinding sound against the drum. I suspect the drum roller has come apart.

Squeak when running the dryer


It's the roller axles and/or the motor shaft. Remove the front of the dryer and lubricate same.

Hot Point electric dryer squeaking when in use.


It could be one of the pulleys on the bottom of the drum. Take the top and front panels off of the dryer. Get some WD-40. Now the hard part, there is no easy way, but put your right arm in underneath the drum (the right side of the drum)and spray the pulley the best you can. This is the hardest, but the easiest way to fix this problem, without having to take the entire dryer and drum apart. I had the similar problem. I didn't completely fix the problem, but the squeak has been significantly quieted.

Dryer makes squeaking noise


If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, open dryer door, remove screws going up into top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side.

Model #MDG8506AWW Dryer with a SQUEAK


a) most likely cause of squeak is from rear rollers, and idler pulley itself. replace all three if your gonna open.

b) front panel comes off by first removing the door 2 screws and then the opposing side also has similar 2 screws after removing them the front panel falls forward and comes off, then 3 5/16 screws on either sides remove the front bulkhead. giving access to the inner workings
