Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Usually the noise issues are caused by idler pulley, rear drum bearing, glides and/or the blower wheel. If the noise is coming from the front of the dryer then the first thing to check is the glides that the front rides on and if the noise is coming from the rear of dryer then rear drum bearing. This issue can also be caused if the drum bearing has worn out, replace the part(s) that has gone bad. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

My dryer is making loud screaching noises. Everytime I turn it on to dry clothes is makes very loud screaching noises.


Sounds like it needs what are called glides or felt. This is what keeps the metal drum from contacting the metal housing. If this is let go too long the drum can be ruined
