Hi,
This Should Be Lubricated, Providing The right Lube Is Used.
You need To grease The Bearings With A high Melting point Grease. Copperease Or Similar. ( I,m not sure What the Americans Use ) alternatively A little Vaseline ( Petroleum Jelly Should Do the Trick ) Always Works Wonders For Me :)
If The Bearing Race ( Holder ) Has Broken, Then A replacement Will be Necessary, This will involve A gear Puller Or similar to remove.
If the bearing is Grating Or grinding, lubricant is only a short term fix.

Drum making noise


The rear of the drum rides on a ball. The ball sets on a plastic bearing filled with lubricant. Over time the lubricant goes away and the plastic deteriorates. As in my home movie. In my DIY channel is links to service videos showing how to replace the rear bearing Here is a quick vid I made of a dryer with a broken rear bearing:

My dryer has a loud squeaking noise it is a frigidaire dryer model num AEQB6000ES2


Hello there and welcme to fixya
This is a fairly common problem with these dryers
please check each of the following you will probably have to remove the outer shell to get axcess to these parts listed below
Rollers
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

The dryer has developed a hi pitch squeak. Does something need to be lubricated and how do I do it?


Usually the hi pitched squeal is either the belt slipping or the bearing. It the drum hesitates at start, then look at the belt as the culprit. But that sound unsually stops after the drum starts retating.

If it grind all the time it is probably the bearing http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-FSG748GFS0/1428/0151200/Y2704973/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= ITEM 12.
If it is loud then I would replace the bearing and lubricate it well with lithium grease.

It isn't that hard to do but does require you to remove the front and top of the dryer, so I hope you are comfortable with that type of work.

When drying clothes duringt he cycle loud noise starts and continues, sould like a seal


This could be a couple things. Check the idler pulley this puts tension on the dryer belt. To check release the tension from the belt and spin the wheel if it makes any noise replace it do not try to lubricate it. Next it could be the rear bearing. On your dryer it has a ball and socket type again if it makes any noise replace it do not lubricate. And finally it could be the blower wheel all are easy to check and inexpensive. This link will walk you thru checking and replacing http://appliancehelponline.com/dryernoisyge.html it may be a different model but checking will be the same

Clothes get hung or catch in the dryer and buttons get torn off or the clothes sometimes get scorched. I have a 2 year old Frigidaire front loader. Model # LEQ2152EE0. Any advice -- other than buy a new...


I believe your problem is worn out drum glides. You should examine the drum to see if the paint is not worn off where the glides make contact. A loss of coating there will accelerate wear on the new replacement glides. Also the bearing at the rear of the drum should be inspected and replaced if worn, or re lubricated if serviceable. The bearing should be a simple ball and socket assembly.

If your dryer is noisy, check these: Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Frigidaire dryer makes noise when it tumbles


"spindle" would seem to refer to the rear drum bearing but teflon would describe the front. Have they both been done? Usually when one is worn out the other isn't far behind. Check the idler arm/wheel for wear. Also motors make a sound when the bearings are bad
