Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

The dryer makes a screeching noise when turned on. It still dries effectively, but the noise is irritating and sounds like a belt issue.

My maytag neptune dryer mdg5500aww is making a screeching sound. It is drying the clothes but it is getting louder by the day. What part needs to be replaced?


There are 2 wheels in the rear that the drum rotates on - one could be binding. The tensioner has a wheel, check it for rotation. Belt slipping? Check motor for operation - check that plastic blower isn't rubbing in its box. Dryers are easy to disassemble - check YouTube for procedure.

Makes screeching noise when on


The roller that keeps the belt tight around the drum has a worn bearing. It is frozen so it will not move causing the screeching noise you have. Replace the belt as well as the whole belt tensioner. It will come complete with a new roller & bearing

Screeching noise until dryer heats up. After the dryer has run for about 5 minutes, the screeching stops.


Sounds like you have a dryer drum belt that's getting bad. Once the belt gets warm enough, it becomes more soft and pliable, lessening the noise. Needs to be replaced. Hope this helped!

Dryer turns and heats, but makes a very loud squeaking (or should I say, SCREECHING) noise. The heavier the load, the louder the squeaking.


Does it sound like a belt ?
Or does it sound like metal ?
Might need to replace the drive belt..
Or - it could be the bearings..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)

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.

ED55 dryer making screeching noises


sounds like the rear tub bearing has worn out that would explain the noise and if it got too bad the bearing can break causing the drum to stick and not be able to turn
