Dryer makes squeeking sound when running

I have a 12 1/2 year old dryer that makes squeaking sound when running. When it first started it only squeaked for a few minutes now it squeaks almost the entire drying cycle.

Dryer is squeeking


You should be able to open the cabinet and identify the source of the squeak. If the dryer is several years old, the belt could be in need of replacement.

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.


I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

The rear drum bearings could be going out, and believe it not, on some rare occasions the motor itself could make a chirping sound.

The barrel makes a rubbing squeeking sound as it turns. Sometimes it is really loud and other times it doesn't make the noise.

Dryer squeaks when turned on, recently is getting louder and louder as drum is turning. Is it worth getting fixed, it's six years old


The squeek is probably the front 'bearing' which is generally made of felt.

Pop the top, pull off the front, remove the drum. Clean the felt or replace it.

A better alternative is to turn up the radio so you cant hear the squeek.

If you do go to this trouble, you may want to replace the belt while you have it apart.

Personally, id let it squeek. It may be annoying but on the ohter hand, you know when it is operating and when it is finished now.

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.
