Make sure the felt on the rim of the drum is secure and the plastic glides that the drum sits on are not worn down.

My ge profile dryer sarted squeaking whats the possible cause


The drum rides on two rubber rollers with nylon or plastic centers which become worn over time. You can access the rollers by removing the front lower cabinet under the door. Other points to check are the tension pulley which provides tension on the belt which you can access from the removed lower panel. The cabinet has a felt ring as a spacer preventing the drum from rubbing against the cabinet which may have fallen or become worn, which is rare. If you still have not found the cause you can attempt to run the motor without the belt to eliminate squeaking from the motor.

Squeaks alot when it is drying clothes, my husband replaced the belt, and front felt. what could it be?


Replace the tensioner roller assembly that tensions the belt. also, check the rear drum rollers that the drum rests on for free spinning but no wobble or noises, If loose or wobbly, replace them too.

Ge profile dpsq495et0ww has a severe squeak to it. we checked out if it was the belt. and the belt looks good. when we take off the front door it doesn't squeak when we turn it on but if i manually turn it...


The problem could probably be with the drum bearings or the drum support rollers. The following link direct you to the internal diagrams of this dryer model with the part selection in case of any damaged parts. Hope that helps you out.

Dryer drum causing squeak


Most likely the front support bearing. If this is the problem you will likely have to replace the slides too. The wizards have a ten year warranty. The bearing is part number WE3M26 and the slides probably need 3 or 4 of them are we1m333. Hope this helps.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
