Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

I have a GE DDE5700 that squeaks loudly when in use. The center spindle seems to be the problem; should I replace all the spindle parts or just those in front of the element assembly?

I have a GE dryer model # DBXR453GV1WW which is making a very loud squeaking noise. the drive belt looks good..no cracks. I was about to order a new belt.. the current one is way too loose when I saw a...


If you will open the dryer, look for the kind of support the drum rides on, the squeaking may be coming from there. There are two kinds usually used. One is a spindle in the center of the rear of the drum You can tell that kind with a flashlight looking inside the drum at the back of it, and if you see 3 screws around a center ( they will be stainless steel, and about maybe 2 inches apart from one another). I have this model in our laundry room.
Repairing it requires removing the drum and replacing the rear spindle assembly, they wear out every few years. (3 - 6)
You might also have the "slides" worn out that the front of the drum rides on. These are plastic strips, and are also replaceable, check them when you take the machine apart.
Be blessed.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

My dryer makes a loud noise when turned on seems to be comming from the back of the drum


Hello there: Here is the only things that noise could even beginning to come from so please read the entire list i have provided below Rear drum bearingSome dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

My GE dryer is making a real loud noice while drying model #DBXR463ED2WW


hELLO THERE
If your dryer is noisy, check these: Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

It could be several things.

Your dryer uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Here is a video at this will walk you thru the replacement and inspection of the front bearing and glides. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. The blower wheel is another common place to hear noise and this is easy to check and inexpensive. The idler pulley is another part that frequently fails. Your dryer supports the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video of this also at the same site. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
