Could be your pulley or rollers or the motor itself you have to take the entire unit apart and visually inspect where the noise is coming from could be rear bearing if the model is old enough if you are not mechanical i suggest you call a tecnician hope this helps

Extremely screeching noise when running?


Screeching is the metal-on-metal contact of the drum touching the rear of the unit while
turning - there's a (usually) felt cover gasket over the circular depression at the back of the dryer.
When this wears through (after a number of years/loads), you get the screeching of
metal-to-metal contact.
Problem: friction can heat up the metal so much that the remaining felt gasket material (and/or
accumulated lint or clothing) catches fire.
Fix: replace felt drum gasket.
The Maytag Atlantis MDE6400AY electric dryer has a DuraCushion(tm) dryer drum, so I'm
suspecting the "DuraCushion" has worn out at least at one point in its 360-degree arc.

When the dryer is running it sometimes makes a screeching sound momentarily on and off during the dryer cycle. Some cycles it does not make the sound at all. Is something going bad? It doesn't seem to...

Hi my Frifidaire dryer model number feq1442es is making a metal screeching noise somtimes when it is running


With frigidaire, more than likely the rear bearing is going out on if it the screeching sound is happening. the part number for that is 131825900 and will run you about $3.00. Go to apdepot to order the part if needed.

Dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.


The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.
