I have an 02 Dodge Ram 1500 ,2wd.Whenever I turn left,my truck makes a squealing noise,like a worn brake pad.Checked all brakes,ok.Cant figure out what or where noise is coming from

You could easily have a front wheel bearing going bad. They tend to get louder when turning. The squeal can be from the bearing itself, or possible from the brake rotor rubbing on the brake stone guard behind the rotor when turning. That rubbing won't occur unless there is excessive play in the wheel bearing or if the guard is bent.

While the drum belt could be PART of the problem, I would suspect the bearing failing and rubbing against the cabinet.

Will have burn marks on clothes sometimes

Are you sure it's burnt marks or could it be from getting hung up between the drum and cabinet and rubbing due to the drum guides failing? Look at the rear and front of the drum to see if the clothes could be getting hung there. Is the dryer making any kind of squealing noise while it is running?

My dryer makes a loud noise when turned on seems to be comming from the back of the drum

Hello there: Here is the only things that noise could even beginning to come from so please read the entire list i have provided below Rear drum bearingSome dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Our dryer was making a loud squeaking noise for a while now it is tripping the circuit breaker as soon as it is started what do you think is our problem.

The drum rides on a bearing in the rear which cause the squeal. The squeal eventually cuts into the bearing and the whole drum begins to rub against the heating element. This causes the breaker to trip.

Noise when spinning fast

A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth
