Question about Frigidaire FDE336RE Dryer
The squeaking/squealing noise has gradually gotten worse. It wasn't a all of a sudden happening, it happened over time. My dryer is downstairs in my garage. The squeaking is SO loud I can hear it upstairs in my house (I have a 2 story condo). While the dryer was off I lifted the top up and sprayed a silicone lubricant all over the drum thinking that might help. It didn't. A few days later I sprayed the drum again with WD40. Didn't help. Then the drum stopped turning alltogether. The dryer would run and heat but the drum didn't move. Now it's moving again but the horrendous loud squeak is still there. Needless to say I'm hanging clothes up to drip dry and not using my dryer at all until it is either fixed or replaced.
The dryer needs to be rebuilt, new drum belt and drum rollers to cure this problem.

the noise is coming from the drum axle bushing that allows the drum to spin on it's axle. Gain access to the rear of machine and apply some high temperature grease that is found in automotive parts stores to the bushing. run it while observing spinning drum at rear for any possible other problem where squeal can be found such as drum slides.

SOURCE: LOUD SQUEALING NOISE
Most likely the rear drum bearing is worn. There's a "ball and socket" arrangement that supports the drum at the rear and a repair kit for it. Part #5303281153. Should run around $25.

That my friend is the sound of metal to metal on the rear drum bearing. The drum has a ball mounted on the rear of it affectionately known in the biz as a trailer ball. It rides in a grease slathered plastic bearing. The bearing is mounted with a metal bracket. Over time the plastic will wear down and the ball will begin to meet the metal mount.
The mount will begin to act like a guillotine and actually eventually cut the ball off and the drum will fall into the heating element and the resulting massive breakdown only occurs on a sunday night. LOL
