Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Squealing!! Our Frigidaire electric dryer is about 2 years old. Just recently it has started this incredibly loud squealing, fortunately it does dry...if you can stand the noise. It doesnt do it all the time, its weird because sometimes it will squeal through an entire load and other times it wont make a peep. There isnt a lot of play in the drum, but it does move some and sometimes pushing it backwards or forwards will eleviate the noise..sometimes. Is this a common problem with the Frigidaire dryer and is it an easy fix? Thank You for any suggestions you might have!! Oh and Merry Christmas!

    Thank you so much "24 seven", your suggestion was spot on! It was a bit time consuming for my husband and I who have never even seen the inside of a dryer, but it was easier than one might think, little scary at first.....but it saved us BIG! and theres peace from the utility room once again!! Thank you!

The noise is coming from the drum axle bushing that allows the drum to spin on it's axle. Gain access to the rear of machine and apply some high temperature grease that is found in automotive parts stores to the bushing. run it while observing spinning drum at rear for any possible other problem where squeal can be found such as drum slides.

Squealing dryer


The dryer drum support on the rear of the drum is worn and must be replaced.
It is a ball and cup design. It is worn out.

Noisey dryer


Peace bumbabob,

Huuum t your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched noises telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on! I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


Unfortunately, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
*****PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU

LOUD SQUEALING NOISE


Most likely the rear drum bearing is worn. There's a "ball and socket" arrangement that supports the drum at the rear and a repair kit for it. Part #5303281153. Should run around $25.fe7bd93.jpg

Squeeky noise


I own a Frigidaire Heavy Duty Dryer The Model # is FDE436RES1. It is 10 years old. When running the dryer it makes a very loud squealing noise although the heat and the dryer still work. Is this a belt or roller problem or does it sound like something else. It is very high pitched and can be heard throughout the entire home. I do not know much about dryer troubleshooting so your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
