Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes

The dryer starts out running fine then about 10 minutes into the cycle it makes an annoying squeaking noise. Can anyone tell what might be wrong.

    My lint filter is in the door frame. The unit has the pulley not the slider. At first i thought the spring for the pulley was rubbing the belt but that is not the case

Another thing to check would be the idler pully down near the belt and motor assembly. On some Kenmore's and Whirlpool's, they have installed slider idlers instead of wheel idler pullys. It will look like a half-moon shaped metal part. If you have this, spend the $13 for a roller pully (Part Number 691366
). Do you have a lint filter in the door or on top of the unit? They do have some other parts on the unit with the lint filter in the door. Let me know what model you have, and will get your squeeking stopped.

    Ok, on these dryers there is also two rollers in the front as well that the drum rides on. If you have the front kick plate off, take some WD-40, and you will see the rollers in the back. Spray the center supports on both rollers. Then look up in the front and you will see the same rollers. Give them a spray as well. On your idler pully, spray the center of that to. See if that stops it, if not, let me know, and will go from there. Talk to you soon.

You can check a lot of things. the motor itself, the rollers on the back, and the main bearing at the center of the drum. you can apply any lubricants to all of those rolling parts.

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck
