When you remove the housing check all your rollers and bearings. If it still squeaks it may be as easy as the level of your dryer.

MY FRIGIDAIRE MODEL FAQE770KW0 DRIER IS MAKING A LOUD NOISE AFTER IT GETS HOT


you might need a new roller on the back of the drum, As for being louder when warm it's the part getting hot from Friction that is wearing the roller or roller pin down.

My Maytag Depenable Care Gas Dryer has become very squeaky when the barrell spins. i took off the front panel and sprayed WD-40 on the backsides with the Plastic wheels and it went away for about 10...


Probably best to grease the wheels (called drum support rollers) rather than use WD-40 because that strips away the lubrication. It will also pay to check the drum support glides under the front of the drum. Worst case you may have to replace the support rollers.

My dryer is squeaky. it's a GE model number DVL223EYOWW. how do I fix a squeaky dryer?


It depends on what is making the squeaking noise. Could be drum bearing, drum slides, tensioner pulley, pr even the leveling legs sometimes squeak.

My danby dryer DCD 5505W is making a squeaky noise.


You need to change its Drum bearing and front rollers. Also replace its Drum glider/pads.

Makes a squeaky sound then stops for the last


Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
Sometimes the belt slips off the idler arm brackett or motor and will not allow the drum to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This could be your saueaky sound you describe if not this will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Loud squeaky noise when dryer starts, noise stops after several minutes


I would replace the belt that turns the drum. It is probably wearing out and that is causing your noise.

My dryer is making a very loud squeaky noise. Is is the motor or something else?


Not the motor if it's still working. The noise is coming from the bushing that hold the drum in place.
