Magic chef dryer making very loud noise as it turns, how to get the bottom off


No need to take the bottom off - the top, front, and back come off - if the noise is a rather high pitched squeak the pads on the drum are worn out, if it sounds like a squeak but more metallic/raspy sound check the motor bearings, also check the drive belt.

Troubleshooting a problem with high pitched squeaking in GE dryer model PBVH520EJ0WW Squeaks when load is small or nearly dry - repairman came to check it out and said he 'couldn't fi


Could be the bearings going, other possibilities could be that the drum is slightly misaligned and scraping against the housing, although that's not very likely, or a bad belt.

Although sometimes it's some obscure thing, I could be compleatly wrong.

Loud squeaking noise when you start up the dryer could it be a bearing dull squeak not high pitched a little bit of a grind sound


It does sound like a bearing or at least a lack of lubrication. But it could also be belt slippage if it only happens at the start. If it is the bearing it would be continuous and slowly get louder and louder.

High pitch squeak with every turn of the drum


Hello. The dryer has a belt running around the entire tub and that belt also goes over an idler pulley which keeps the tension correct. When you get that high pitched squeak the fix is to replace both the belt and the pulley. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your dryer model number you will get the schematics for your dryer which will show you exactly where these parts are. You can also order new parts from that site if you choose. Regards, Joe

My dryer has a high pitched squeak. What could it be? It is not loose coins or other foreign objects. It appears the little white pulley is not turning when the dryer is on. What can I do to fix this?

You can generally access the unit from the rear panel. Try and lube the joints around the pully for the belt and any other moving parts. Hopefully you won't have to replace any parts. Good luck
