SOURCE: Help my dryer makes an awful squeaking noise when

The problem may not be the rear bearing. It could be the drum glides in the front drum bearing that the drum rubs against as it spins. The rear part of the drum is supported by the drum bearing. The front, however is supported by the drum glides. These glides are plastic and do wear down. Once they wear through, you usually have have metal on metal scraping as the front of the drum will be rubbing against the case of the dryer. You can view the glides at Type in your model number as "DBXR463EB0WW" The digit before the last two W's is a zero, not an "O". Go to the "Front Panel and Door" heading and locate items 313 and 316. This is the entire front bearing with glides. If the bearing itself is not worn, just replace the glides (take note of the glide color, there are different part numbers for them). You will need to lift the top panel, to access.

If you inspect the glides and they aren't worn, or if the noise you are experiencing is definitely coming from the rear bearing, you will need to remove the front panel of the dryer to access the drum. Once the front panel has been removed, you will need to release the tension on the dryer belt and remove it from the drive motor. Then, with the belt still wrapped around the drum you can use it as a handle to help guide the drum from its rear mount. A replacement kit is located under the "Drum" heading as item 508 (Includes all the parts).

Ideally, you hope that this is a simple drum glide problem. The repair isn't that difficult. Replacing the rear bearing, however, can be extensive for someone that has never performed this repair before. Take note of the exploded view diagrams for reference. NOTE: If you decide to repair this yourself, make sure the dryer is UNPLUGGED any time you service it. Dangerous voltage is still present inside the dryer, even with the power turned off.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

This could be a simple fix or more of a major task, so if you think you can have a go then great, first find tools and torch, empty any clothes, unplug from the power supply,disconnect vent if any, place unit on a table or bench then remove the back check for large quantities of fluff and dust, clean as much as possible, see if drive belt is secure and not damaged if this is not the case then the drum bearings may be worn, try to move the drum up and down, try the same thing from inside the door, as these dryers tend to wear front bearings quicker than rear ones, if excessive wear and you are confident, remove the drive belt and tensioner take note of the layout, remove supporting bracket at rear of drum taking careful note of where any nuts bolts are from, withdraw the drum you should now have access to all the bearings which are usually like a special plastic runners or ring, contact local supplier stating make and model number ask for a bearing kit, replace bearings and rebuild machine, all this could take up a few hours to a few days so ensure you can manage without a working dryer.............good luck

Crusader tumble dryer

Many dryer drums ride on wheels that look like kids scooter wheels. There are usually 3 of them. One or more may be bad. Also, look carefully at the belt that goes around the drum. It may be fraying and causing the noise.

Defy autodry tumble dryer

This will be bearing noise, the front of the drum uses a felt strip as a bearing and this can wear causing a metal on metal grinding sound, or it could be the rear bearing. You need to dismantle it to investigate further.

Crusader autodryer ct32v making burning smell

On the surface, this sounds like a venting or filter issue. After extended use, it's not unusual for the vent line to become semi-clogged or obstructed. Check this first. The vent line shouldn't be more than 8-10 feet, but in the real world this doesn't always happen.

Then check the lint screen and if ok, pull the unit away from the wall (turn it off first) and check for clogging in the vent line where it leaves the dryer. Take a look at the vent line itself and make sure it isn't kinked, or melted anywhere along the run.

If it still smells, there could be an issue with heating elements. This amy require a service call.

Make sure the dryer isn't overloaded - this can cause the drum to turn slower than normal and produce excess heat. The belt itself could be slipping....but that's not usually the case.

If you are getting 240v on all element connections then you are missing a neutral and the element will not heat.
Please check this and post your findings.
