The dryer squeaks... loudly! Is it more likely the glide, the felt, or something else?


Good Morning John,

I understand that the dryer on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# FEX831CS, is squeaking intermittently. I also see that you are wondering if it could be the glide, the felt, or possibly something else, that is causing this. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine the exact cause of the squeaking. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

DRYER PROBLEM


When the pads on the front wear, it will make noise when running. They can be replaced. There is one on the top and one on the bottom rim where the drum turns. You remove the front to access them by removing the screws on the top. Post your model number for diagrams. It's usually stamped on a small tag in a visible location on your appliance.

Washer-Dryer- behind or on top of the control panel. Behind the door. On the lower front or side of the cabinet.

My dryer makes this high pitch screaming noise...what's going on?


In the cradle where the center drum bearing fits is a plastic bearing mounted on a metal bracket. When that plastic bearing wears down the ball begins to contact the metal bracket. Bad things are ahead also. Because now as the drum turn the bracket is cutting into the ball.c44ef56.jpg
