Probably the drum. Could be the bearing the back center of the drum ride on or the gliders the drum rest on while turning.

Drum squeaks on rotation. can drum be lubed?


would not lube the drum but the two small wheels that the drum rotates on sometimes their "axles" get dry and rusty and will squeak. Put some antisieze on them and see if the noise goes away.

My dryer is making a loud squeaking noise when i turn it on


I would suspect the belt to be making the noise. If you are handy with a screwdriver, unplug the dryer, take the back panel off and have someone rotate the drum while you listen for the squeak. If it is the belt, get a can of belt dressing from your local auto parts store and lightly spray it on while rotating the drum so you get all parts of the belt.

There is intermittent squeeking when the dryer is in operation. Is this the drum bearing or the drive belt? How do I access both to check?

My GE Profile Dryer is still operating but produces loud intermitent noise as the drum rotates. What can I do to eliminate the noise?


It sounds like you may have a bad bearing in the back of the drum. That model rotates on a sort of ball and socket type mechanism. You may be able to lubricate it if the noise is just squealing/squeaking. If it is more than that, you'll probably need to replace the bearing mechanism. If you lube it, use a heavy weight lube that is rated for high heat (I've used brake caliper grease.)

Dryer rotates and drys well, but makes a noise when reversing rotation. Makes more noise at the beginning of use, then subsides. What could be wrong? Belt, bearings? Can I fix or do I need an expert?

Dryer will not work1


Squeaking noise often indicates problem with drive belt. If belt broke, drum will no longer rotate. Belt is similar to fan belts used in autos. Ck Sear's website for parts diagram of yr dryer. If it shows a drive belt, I would start there.
