Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My ge model #dhdsr46ee1ww dryer squeeks terribly. I understand this is likely the ''sliders''. Should I replace all 4 and do you think this will solve my problem. I was told these are actually placed on the inner and outer of the drum bearing but parts are listed by front and back.Is there another problem that could cause sqeeking like this. I did take of front and cleaned out the lint and this stopped the squeek for a little while. And while I am on the subject of lint. I empty the lint filter every load. How can I prevent the lint from building up in this area? Thanks for your answers Michele

Yes replace all 4 of them. Check to make sure your exhaust is clear to the outside. If the dryer cannot expel the lint then you will always have this build up. Exhaust is the most important thing for a dryer.

Dryer squeeks until warming up

If it is a Sears or Whirlpool the drum rollers or the belt idler need oiled. Use AutoTransmissionFluid or 3n1 oil(no WD-40 as it will ruin the bushings) a few drops each. If a GE or Hotpoint the drum sliders and bearing need to be serviced and replaced. They can be lubed with bar soap. If this is helpful,Please leave Feedback. Thanks, SnugglePants

Ge dryer model #DHDSR46EE1WW. Dryer will not run- just makes loud humming noise. Replaced the start switch and it still will not run at all. PLEASE HELP!

You most likely have a bad motor. Try to spin the dryer drum by hand with the door open, door swich held or taped down, and while pressing start. This will likely get the motor going. If this works try closing the door and starting it again. If it works now the motor may have just had a hard time starting do to it's position or the drum's postition. If it only works when you help it out manually you have a bad motor or maybe a sticky drum/jammed belt/etc. Good luck!

Ge dryer squeeking


For a pictorial troubleshooting please open the link:

You will be looking at the front glides that the drum rides on, the glides are probably gone and the drum is rubbing on the plastic glide holder....if it is damaged will need to replace the front drum bearing/glide holder and all of the glides, usually about 4 of them.

If it is the drum front glides the noise will be from the front area, right behind the front panel at the top. If the noise is from the center rear of the dryer your drum bearing is gone, need to replace this also if you have to take this dryer apart..

Ge electric dryer

most likely source of sqeak fornt front glides or rear bearing, the front glides can be seen be removing the front panel, 4 plastic strips the tub rests on and spins across, they will look worn or even missing if thats the casse( they simply twist on) as far as the rear bearing ,,a.k.a. "top hat" , for it looks liek a top hat, the drum is simply pulled foward and out of rear post and the bearing can be reinstalled without even removeing the belt form the pulley
