Maybe your problem is coming from the bushing shaft part. Mine was so used that it made a terrible and high pitched sound.

Try to look behind your machine, remove the part hidding the bushing shaft and check if everything is ok.

My bushing shaft was make of metal, and I replaced it with a teflon one. Everything is working fine right now.

Have a good day.

The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

it could be your drum glides in the front of the drum or the rear center bearing or rear rollers, or the belt idler pulley or motor end bearings going bad,you will need to remove the front cover by removing lower kick panel screws near the floor and lifting upward on front cover,then remove top cover screws located under top cover and lift up and secure so as not to break wires to control panel,then rotate drum by hand and listen for noise location

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.

My dryer is making a high pitch squeeking noise but it still dries.


You likely have an idler wheel that is dry. The idler wheels are what supports the drum and allows it to turn freely. There may also be a belt tension problem. If the belt is too lose, it can slip on the motor, causing a squeal as well. First thing to do is pull the housing off, and see exactly where sound is coming from.

Maytag electic dryer noise


First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.

High pitch squeal


IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY A STUCK DRUM ROLLER OR IDLER PULLEY. I HAVE SEEN IN WORST CASE SCENARIOS WHERE IT HAS BEEN THE MOTOR ITSELF WHEN SUBJUCTED TO LOTS OF LINT AND DUST FROM PLUGGED VENTING. I WOULD CHECK THE FIRST TWO AS THEY ARE THE MOST COMMON. DO NOT OIL THEM.
