Hello. chances are that either the belt or the tension pulley is bad. I always recommend changing both at the same time. J.

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

My dryer squeaks terribly


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Squeaking sound from the dryer comes when the belt is either broken or worn out, before replacing the belt also check the idler pulley because if that is bad then it also needs replacement with the belt. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Belt is slipping and squeaking when walked upon what type of lubricant should be used


Sounds like the motor belt is slipping. Make sure the belt from the motor to front roller pulley is tight.Once you have that adjusted lube and adjust the walk belt. The squeaking is usually from the motor belt. Many treadmills(Proform, Nordictrack for example) use Silicone lube (lube n walk, or silicone With teflon from Lowes works good) Call the manufacturer to make sure it uses a silicone lube.

Our dryer has a terrible squeak. We replaced the


The terrible squeak is probably the idler pulley shaft spalling in the idle pulley mount. When the idler pulley siezes to to pulley shaft it spins in the mount and makes a horrible racket.

It can be the motor bearings also but I doubt it at this time. With the belt off you can spin the motor and listen for any odd sound. If you hear nothing then the problem is definately the idler pulley assy.

It is normal for the drum to float in place. When there is a problem with the drum or drum felts, you usually hear a cyclic scrape or grinding sound that is concurrent with each rotation of the drum.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Making a terrible loud squeaking problem like a belt is too tight or something....


Hello, I think by your description it's likely the rear drum bearing & hub. It is quite common on frigidaire/white westinghouse made dryer's.**unplug the unit before servicing** Try and search for a tiny little ball bearing at the back of the unit and see if you can isolate the noise is from there. If so you may be ok with some hi-temp silicone based lube for now, (you'll need to apply it from inside anyway, so you might as well replace it) but the bearing assembly probabely needs to be replaced...if that is the source of the squeaking. I hope that helps, Good Luck :)

My dryer works right it's just when it's running


Usually lound screeching and squeaking noises are caused by dry drum rollers. You need to lube the rollers or replace them. When I say lube the roller I mean the shaft and bearing part of the roller.

My 2005 ford escape has a terrible squeek coming from under the gas pedal. It becomes worse as I accelerate. I can't find any type of linkage to lube.


there is nothing under the floor of the pedal will make that terrible squeak sound. have your belt check make sure they are tight and not slipping, it will also make that loud squeak sound if it slips. go to auto parts store and purchase a can of WD40 and spray it on all the pulley under the hood. have the engine off while spraying the pulleys. don't worry if it get on other parts of the engine. Common problems with pulleys squeaking on many vehicle.
