SOURCE: squeaky dryer

Depends how technical you are. More than likely it is the rollers (depending on who made the Kenmore). Go to www.apwagner.com and you can get the parts there. Or if you are unsure about taking it all apart, call for service.

My frigidaire fer231cas2 makes a horrible loud noise after its been running for 10 or so mins


There are rollers that the drum sits on. The roller surface or bearing can go bad causing the noise.

Kenmore clothes dryer squeaks loud to get going


Sounds like a bearing or the drive belt. Try turning the empty drum by hand. If it sounds normal you probably just need to replace the belt. If it make strange sounds when you turn it by hand then its probably the bearing.

The belt isn't a big deal but a bearing probably is.

I have a rubbing sound each time the drum turns in my Maytag Neptune dryer


Run the dryer empty, if you still hear the sound but not as loud as when loaded, the bearing to the drum are shot. Either way, I think the bearings are bad. They are permanently lubricated, so ther is no greasing them.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

My dryer is making a loud noise


The wheels on each side at the bottom that support the drum are worn and that is causing the drum to bounce and make the noise.

Loud noise when dryer runs


Two items on two different dryers can make this noise. One is the belt tensioner pulley and the other is the bearing on a Frigidaire dryer.

Loud noise when dryer is running.


My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.
