Yes. Replace the rear bearing cup that the drum sits down into. Do not oil. This cup takes a special grease that you can get with the cup. Also don't let anyone try to sell you the whole bearing kit. All you need is the cup and the grease.

Dryer sqeaks while it's running


This could be the result of a loose/worn belt, or worn drum roller bearings. Is it a constant squeal or a squeak......squeak.........squeak, basically in time with the RPM of the drum? If that is the case, get new drum bearings. If the former is the case, get a new belt.

The squeak is actually the rear bearing WE3X75.

Dryer squeaks when clothes are drying


Squeaking can mean bearings going bad or the pulleys needing some oil on them. The pulleys can usually be accessed from the rear of the dryer. The bearings are a different story, you would need to remove outer casing of the dryer to remove the drum to get the bearings behind the drum. I would recommend trying to oil the motor and idler pulleys and if that doesn't fix the problem if your handy you can try to replace the bearings. Its a big job, the bearings are behind the drum and are screwed in from the inside of the drum. In order to remove the drum the casing of the dryer had to be removed, usually the front and the top (the top will sometimes tip back on hinges). After that the drum should slide out with the bearing assembly attached. Installation is the same as removal. {Note: If you find it to be too much trouble, I would just leave it squeak, other than being annoying it won't hurt anything. Also, some dryers have a compartment in the back where you can see the bearing assembly, maybe you can spray some WD-40 in there and see if it stops squeaking. The time you really need to replace the bearings is if your drum is loose, as the bearings have gone bad, not just squeaky}

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals


Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.

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)

Squeak


It is proably the center bearing in the back of the drum, especially if it at least a few years old. It can be replaced by you if you are very handy.
