Troubleshooting a problem with high pitched squeaking in GE dryer model PBVH520EJ0WW Squeaks when load is small or nearly dry - repairman came to check it out and said he 'couldn't fi


Could be the bearings going, other possibilities could be that the drum is slightly misaligned and scraping against the housing, although that's not very likely, or a bad belt.

Although sometimes it's some obscure thing, I could be compleatly wrong.

High pitch squeak with every turn of the drum


Hello. The dryer has a belt running around the entire tub and that belt also goes over an idler pulley which keeps the tension correct. When you get that high pitched squeak the fix is to replace both the belt and the pulley. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your dryer model number you will get the schematics for your dryer which will show you exactly where these parts are. You can also order new parts from that site if you choose. Regards, Joe

My dryer squeaks like a high pitched whistle or tone


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.



You will need to expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Dryer makes a high pitch squeaking noise


This could be a dry support bearing, a dried out drum seal or something stuck in the drum seal. If I could hear it I would know better where to start. Listen and try to locate the source from the above list. It could be the belt but that is not as common.

Dryer does not start, makes a high pitched whistle noise.


Can your drum be stalled and the whistling is created by the belt slipping on the pulley on the motor?

Remove the top and front to look more closely at your situation.

Let me know what you find.

You can generally access the unit from the rear panel. Try and lube the joints around the pully for the belt and any other moving parts. Hopefully you won't have to replace any parts. Good luck
