yes but you will have to take the front of the dryer apart and pull out the drum/tub. to do this you must open the dryer door and look up for two screws, remove them. next close the door and using a flat head screw driver, pop the dryer lid/top up (be careful not to bend apart the two green snaps that are holding it tight on each side). now using a phillip head screwdriver in each inside corner you need to unscrew the screw. now lift up and out slowly to remove the front of the dryer ( unplug the dryer door wires before removing front completely). now you must pull the tub straight out (you might need to reach in and take the belt loose first). Now you are where you need to be.
Yes, It is still safe but very annoying...
The source is probably the guide rollers for the drum or the belt tensioner pulley. To know for sure you will need to pull the dryer apart and turn it by hand slowly and see where the noise is coming from...
Have you fixed this problem? I also have a Hoover condenser dryer, only a few months old, and has started to make a squeal/whistle. I'm thinking it might be the front fan needing some WD40, OR too much water vapour around the belt that moves the drum causing the sounds. If it's the fan, lubricating the shaft and its components should fix the problem, if a wet fan then I'd think maybe fully cleaning the condenser filter, reservoir ect will fix the problem. The problem seems to go away though "mostly" 15 or so minutes after you start the dryer, so that makes me think ones it gets warm something is expanding to allow more "give" so maybe the belt.
The belt can be replaced as follows. 1 remove top and front of dryer shell 2 belt goes around drum around motor pully then under tentioner wheel 3 replace front and top of dryer (top pops off use a slotted screw driver) Thanx for using Fixya Please take your time to rate me
First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.
you may have to take it apart and check two things...
1. the motor on dryers can get pluged with dust and lint and dry out. the motor bearings may simply be dry. it might be too late for the motor, but you could try lubing the motor bearings and at least stop the squeal for a while.
2. remove the drum and lubricate the wheels or bearings that the drum rides on.
lubricate all rollers and belt guides as well.
hope this helps..........jay
Yes its worth repairing, it sounds like a simple fix, could be pulley, or seal replacement but for the price of some machine oil, or part, well worth it. The intelli dry pulls apart from front, with the door and top is hinged. A little time consumeing but I think still worth it.
take the dryer apart and oil the drum support rollers and the idler pulley. If this does not fix it. Replace the support rollers and the idler pulley. To acces the rollers, take the 2 screws out under the lint filter and then raise the top of the dryer. then remove the 2 screws holding on the front. Take the front off and remove the drum and theres the rollers and the idler pulley. (taking apart the dryer applies to a whirlpool, kenmore, roper, kitchenaid, estate.) If you have another brand let me know i will tell you how to take it apart. (if oiling doesnt fix it your local parts store should have all the parts needed in stock.)
sounds like rear bearing is dry you will need to remove drum to get to it pop clips in top and raise 2 phillips scews 1 in each side remove front remove belt from drum lift drum up in rear and remove ck to make sure plastic bearing is not worn down to metal bracket if it is it will need to be replaced
