DCXR463GA2WW Squeak My dryer has a "Squeaking" noise, like a bearing or a belt while in use. It has also now developed a "low rumble" in opposing sound with the squeak. So it goes "squeak, rumble, squeak, rumble..."

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.

GE dryer DCVH515EFOWW thumping noise after heats up. Recently replaced front drum bearing and slides which fixed squeaking. Now having rhythmic thumping (no squeal or squeak).


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

Tip

Gas & Electric clothes Dryer sqeaks, rumbling, & noises


If your clothes dryer has any sort of uncommon noises coming from it they are fairly easy to repair. The drum turns with the help of a belt with a belt tensioner. The tensioner keeps the belt tight. The tensioner also has a roller with a bearing. If the bearing goes dry it will squeak. If the bearing locks up the belt will burn and you will smell burning rubber. Eventually the belt will break off. The roller can be ordered from most companies with the belt. It is advisable to replace the drums front seal that rides along the front panel. These will wear and squeak too in time. To service these parts the front panel must be removed to gain access. All parts are fairly easy to repplace with someone helping you to hold the drum up when re assembly come up. You can also ask me more questions if needed.
Thanks for stopping by reading my tips!

GE dryer Mod # DWXR463EG1WW is squealing. Does anyone know what is wrong with it and how I can fix it?


Sounds like a rear bearing . remove the 2 screws from the top when you open the door . this way you can take the top off . When you take the top off remove the screws on the inner left and right on the front panel. disconnect the belt from the pulley and motor and pull the drum out . then you will see the rear bearing . cheap fix but can be a pain. good luck

Loud squeaking noise when you start up the dryer could it be a bearing dull squeak not high pitched a little bit of a grind sound


It does sound like a bearing or at least a lack of lubrication. But it could also be belt slippage if it only happens at the start. If it is the bearing it would be continuous and slowly get louder and louder.

Weird squeaking noise from under hood started from sitting an hour after being driven ,noise goes away when accelerating but comes back when not ,when parked noise is constant a type of squeaking noise


You should have your belts checked for proper tension. If they're squeaking when the engine is at a low RPM then they are most likely loose and need to be tightened. However, that squeak may also be an indication that one of the tensioners in the belt's line may be wearing down. If that is the case the tensioner will need to be replaced since the bearing inside is worn down beyond the point where lubrication would be useful.

Drum initially starting squeaking. now it will


The squeak was from a bad bearing in the belt tensioner.
replace the roller assembly for the tensioner and the belt too.
The roller has a bearing in it that has gone bad causing this problem

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.


The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals


Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.

Intermittent Squeaking


You know how when the pads on your car get worn they start that noise? Well the bearing that holds the tub has a metal bracket. When that plastic wears down it begins to makes those noises. If left alone the metal bracket will eventually cuut into that drum bearing like a guillotine. I have pictures. Have the women and small babys leave the room: Click (HERE)
