Amana dryer sqeaks at start up

When I first start the Amjana dryer there is a loud sqeaking noise until it warms up. I think it might be the belt. How do you take off the front panel

Going in through the front is usually an absolute last resort when working on white goods. Based on experience with other machines (I don't know yours):

If you pull the dryer out then tip it back a bit, you may be able to get to some of the components through the bottom.

There is almost certainly a large access panel on the back (probably your best way in if you have belt problems).

Working from the back of the machine, if you take some of the top edge trim off, you will probably be able to get the top cover off if you need to.

My dryer is sqeaking loudly when running


Squeaking usually comes from drum roller supports and/or the belt idler pulley needing lubricated. If the drum does not have drum roller supports under the drum, it will be equipped with a plastic drum glide the is located around the perimeter of the front drum facing. If this plastic wears down it will cause the drum to scrape against the metal bulkhead and make noise. If equipped, you need to replace the drum glide

The drum rollers (if equipped) can be lubricated with a light weight turbine oil (like the kind you would lubricate some ceiling fan motors with). Lubricate the roller wheels at the axle ONLY. Do not lubricate the wheels. The same is true for the idler pulley. Make sure you don't get any oil on the belt, or it will slip.

If you need instructions on how to reinstall the drive belt, repairclinic.com has dryer belt diagram illustrations under their "Repair Help" section. Look for the "Dryer Belt Diagram" link on the left hand side of the page. If your dryer is a GE model, you would use diagram M, D, or L (depending on the age of the dryer).

If you have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

Amana dryer, sqeaks, very loud, makes alot of noise. Someone said it needs a belt. How do you change the belt. We lifted the top and the drum is loose.


Try leveling the dryer The outside cab is the bearing for the drum a little twist and adjusting can fix it. You can also try some belt dressing
