ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

The dryer squeaks... loudly! Is it more likely the glide, the felt, or something else?


Good Morning John,

I understand that the dryer on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# FEX831CS, is squeaking intermittently. I also see that you are wondering if it could be the glide, the felt, or possibly something else, that is causing this. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine the exact cause of the squeaking. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dryer makes loud squeaking sound when spining


how old? Dryers squeak for one of 3 reasons..bad belt, bad motor or drum rubbing against dryer framework.
run it empty...intermittent squeaks usually are the drum...something's bent
continuous- is there any burning smell? If so, most likely the motor, if not, possibly the belt.
Open the top (most have screws or can just be pried open) and watch it run...identify the source of the sound if possible

try spraying the belt and motor with a little wd-40 and let it dry for a day, then try again.
If that doesn't help, repairman or new/used dryer...probably better off to find a decent one off of craigslist b4 paying to repair an already faulty machine

Dryer squeekes on and off


Hello.

Intermittent squeaking usually arises from drum rollers, a bearing at the back of the tub or the pulley for the belt. Locate where the squeak is coming from the loudest and you can narrow down the cause.

Loud in the back middle: Drum bearing kit

Loud in the back bottom: Drum rollers.

Loud in the top front: Drum glides

Lound in the bottom front: Belt pulley.
