Question about GE WSM2480DWW Unitized Spacemaker Washer and Gas Dryer
My dryer is making a loud squeaking noise when the dryer is running. The squeak is not constant, but it is very loud and annoying. If you manually turn the dryer with the door open, it also makes the noise as well. Any help would be appreciated. I was wondering if I could fix this myself? The unit is approx. 3 yrs old.
If you can get it apart, you should be able to fix it yourself. This is a tricky task though (I've seen customers spend hours just trying to change a belt, which you'll have to remove), so you may want to pay the money and have someone come out.
It is hard to say without hearing the noise for myself, but my best educated guess would be that the dryer drum bearing needs to be lubricated. You should lubricate it with white lithium grease, about 1.5 ounces of it.
In order to do this, you will have to take the dryer front off, remove the belt from underneath the drum and then remove the drum. You will see a bearing on the backside of the drum (looks like a post with a ball on it). You will see where that inserts on the back wall of the dryer. You should put the grease in the insertion point, then put the dryer back together again.
