Looking at the parts breakdown available at Searspartsdirect you can see that you dryer does in fact have a ball assembly talked about by wiringlunati. The frigidaire book I looked at for my washer calls out a grease to use on it which would be the same for your dryer available at napa. Sil-Glyde which you could put to lubricate the ball assembly if it is not already worn from lack of lubrication. Hope this extra info helps.

Look in the drum. If you see 3 screws in about a three inch circle in the center of the back, then it rotates on a ball and socket. These get dry and or loose. You can try greasing it with a very high temp grease (try one for lubing disc brake calipers on cars) or it may need to be replaced. If you don't see those screws, it probably runs on rollers which either need spray lube (such as WD40) or replacing.

Belts squeaks

It could be that the belt/belts are dry and worn out. It's also possible that you have a noisy idler pulley or belt tensioner. I have used, with great success I might add, some stuff called Door Ease. You can buy it at a hardware store and it looks like a stick of glue, but it's used to lube door hinges. Apply that to the fan belts when the engine is running. Please please please be careful doing this. I don't want any lost fingers... Anyhow, if the noise persists after thins I would suspect a pulley as the culprit.

My 06 corolla S has a squeaky serpentine belt. i bought the car in february with 75000 miles the engine had been "detailed" and shiny greasy stuff sprayed all over the engine compartment and...

Yes you should definitely replace it. (However bear in mind that the belt noise may return at some stage once the new belt gets a bit of use and wear).

This is a very common problem with serpentine belts. When the belts have a bit of wear and they are cold and damp they can tend to squeak and squeal on some vehicles. Sometimes the noise will disappear or reduce once the belt is warmed up but this is not always the case.

It is very unwise to apply any type of lubricant to the belt like soap, silicone spray or other materials because this can cause belt slippage. If the belt is slipping it is not performing it's designed function.

I have found from experience that the only way to properly overcome noisy belts is to fit a new one. They are not expensive and are easy to fit on most vehicles. I replaced an noisy belt on one of my own vehicles 6 months ago and it is now silent. (Other than the noise, the condition of the "old" belt was good).

If you are going to fit it yourself make sure you draw up a belt routing diagram BEFORE you remove the old belt so you know how to refit the new item. (Many people remove belts and then cannot work out how to refit them around the various pulleys).
Give the belt pulleys a good clean before you fit the new belt.

Keep your old belt in the car as a spare in case you ever have a breakage.

I hope this helps.

I have a MAT10PDAAW Maytag washing machine making a horrible squeaking noise on the spin cycle. I think it's the kit damper (AP4024203) (

Is it a continuous squeak or only for the first part of the spin cycle?? Try running it on Spin with no water or laundry after removing the Pump belt, Best guess is that it is from the drive belt, DO NOT use any oil or other lubricant on it. Try reversing the drive belt, top side down -lower side up... no solution,do the same with just the pump belt in place, maybe the pump is noisy.

Very loud squeaking noise - like a noisy loose fan belt on a car.

The dryer needs to be rebuilt, new drum belt and drum rollers to cure this problem.

When the dryer is running it is really noisey. We should have returned it but didn't

Sounds like something is caught between the drum and dryer (inside) or the drum bearings are going bad. Normally sounds like a squeaking then get to a grinding noise (not good)

Have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata and for the last year it has a high pitch squeak almost always when the engine is running. I had it into the shop three or four times and they tried to get the squeak to stop....

Occasionally this will happen. Here are a few tricks to hush the noisy belt. Try using another belt from another manufacturer. Its true you do get what you pay for. A better belt may be the ticket. Another trick is to lightly score the idler pulley with a file all the way around in a cross pattern then lightly sand the pulley to rough up the surface. There is also a spray you can buy called belt dressing that will work. Hope this gives you a reprieve from your earplugs. Good luck Dena.

Whirlpool dryer drum making noise

window.google_render_ad();There are many places & parts that could be causing your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy. To find out what is causing the noises, you need to find out where are the noises coming from.
Start the dryer and let it run for a while and listen to try to pinpoint where in the dryer the noises is coming from. Once you have an idea of the area, you will need to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet and take the dryer apart.
Below you will find the parts that you need to check when your dryer is noisy.
The drum baffles:

The drum baffles are use to tumble the clothes inside of the drum, in other words, the baffles job is to separate the pieces of laundry as the drum turns.
When the dryer is getting older and if you use the dryer a lot, the drum baffles holding screws will become loose. Loose drum baffles will cause noises. All you need to do, is to open the top panel and tighten the drum baffles holding screws.
The drum support rollers:

These dryers uses four drum support rollers, tow on the front and two on the rear. The job of the drum support rollers is to keep the drum tumbling smooth.
When the grease on one of the rollers dry out, the roller start to make squeaking noises and the roller bearing will start to wear out until the bearing on the roller is gone. When the bearing on the roller is gone, the noise will change from squeaking to a clanking noise.
The blower wheel:

The blower wheel is use to circulate the air inside of the dryer drum. The most common Whirlpool blower noises are cause by something falling inside of the blower housing and hitting the blower when the motor runs.
The Idler pulley:

The Idler pulley is use to apply the necessary tension on the belt. There are two types of idler pulleys, the pulley with the wheel and the pulley with the teflon slide. A bad idler pulley could cause a Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
The drive motor:

Worn out bearings on the motor will cause the motor to run kind of noisy. When the motor starts making noises, the solution to this problem is to replace the motor.
The belt:

The belt on most dryers is only about1/4 inch wide. These belts work very hard making the drum tumble. When the belt stretch just 1/2 inch more that it supposed to, the belt will start slipping and that could cause your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
As you could see, there are a lot of parts that could become noisy in your dryer. When your dryer starts making noises, make sure to check it out before it gets worse.
