A) most likely cause of squeak is from rear rollers, and idler pulley itself. replace all three if your gonna open.

b) front panel comes off by first removing the door 2 screws and then the opposing side also has similar 2 screws after removing them the front panel falls forward and comes off, then 3 5/16 screws on either sides remove the front bulkhead. giving access to the inner workings

Kenmore stackable wash/dryer Dryer squeaks so loud. How do I stop the squeak.


You probably have a bearing in one of the rollers that spin when the dryer is turning. You'll have to take the front panel off and remove the dryer tub by taking the belt off. You'll then see two doughnut shaped wheels attached to the back panel. Check and see if one or both are loose on the shaft that holds them. If they are replace them. Lubercating is not an option. If they seem ok, check the wheel that the belt loops through and make sure it spins without wobbling. One of the three things is causing the squeak.

Dryer about 5-6 years old and does about 5-6 loads per week. last 2 months, with medium to heavy loads, has developed a loud squeak that coincides with drum rotation. light loads cause a lesser squeak, and...


drum rollers/glides, may be that the motor needs to be oiled, in which case you will need to unplug dryer and drill a hole in the casing not to deep just to where it goes through the casing, then moisten the cotton fabric. Hope this helps Tim:

The dryer squeaks loudly


The dryer has been over loaded too often. Try to determine if squeak is from the front or back. The felt pad dirty. If it is from the bottom, then the tension roller is binding and needs lubrication.

Maytag Dryer, 25 year old dryer has a loud squeak


Hello.

The squeaking is coming from the rollers that the drum rides on. If you take the model number to a local appliance service store they will have the parts and be able to direct you on replacing them.

We just bought this dryer and after drying a load I touched the top of the dryer and it was incredibly hot? is this normal?


Check your vent it may be stopped up this will cause the top to get overly hot and the bearing to squeak

Inglis Citation dryer still squeaks


just an idea.....try to match the squeak to the revolutions of the drum or the guide pulley.
if the squeak is fast it is probably a guide pulley or a roller that the drum rides on. if the squeak is farther apart then the drum is wearing in one spot and rubbing on something. check for wear spots around the drum area.
hope this helps.........jay

Maytag dryer squeaks during cycle


if replacing the rollers didn't fix the squeak, you need to replace the teflon drum slides and drum gasket material. mine sqalled so much it would run you out of the room. now it's quiet.

Dryer drum causing squeak


Most likely the front support bearing. If this is the problem you will likely have to replace the slides too. The wizards have a ten year warranty. The bearing is part number WE3M26 and the slides probably need 3 or 4 of them are we1m333. Hope this helps.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
