    The sweak sounds like it is comming from the upper drum region

  • davidjota_ja Aug 29, 2010

    It isn't the Bearing. I replaced the old bearing with a brand New GE bearing when I had the squeak. Please stop telling me it is the bearing. It is something else and it is loud!

The squeak is caused by a dried up bearing in the belts idler pulley or the felt surrounding the drum itself

    Run it; raise the top up and look for the source of the sound.

Hello David. Test to see if squeek is less noisy when dryer is empty -- load should make noise louder

Also note if it is continuous or happens every time the drum makes a revolution...

There are several things that can cause a dryer to be noisy. There are a lot of moving parts in a dryer that can cause noises to occur when they get worn. Several parts support the drum, and may make noise or vibrations when worn out. Many times a dryer will squeak just a little bit as it first starts. This should go away in just a few seconds. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks.

Many dryers use a center spindle to support the clothes drum. This spindle may be a ball-and-socket support, or it may be a shaft inside a sleeve. When these component bearings get worn out, they may make a squealing or rubbing sound. Replace this bearing when it gets worn out. Many dryers also use plastic glides in the front end of the clothes drum. When these glides are worn out, you may hear a lot of noise. If the glides are worn, replace them as a set.

Some dryers use rollers to support the clothes drum. If these rollers or wheels are worn out, they can be extremely noisy. You ought to replace the whole set at the same time. A belt that has been damaged or frayed may make a thumping or slapping sound as the drum turns.

Whirlpool model 110.88752792 dryer runs but does not heat


Concerning the Kenmore 11088752792 model where the dryer spins but does not heat. I had that problem a few years ago with the same model.

I replaced the fuse (part No. 3399849 about $10.00) and the thermostat (part no 3398128 about $25.00). Dryer worked fine the first try.

FYI. Today, I'm searching for what makes the dryer squeak when I came across your issue (though 6 months since you posted, but I figure there are other Kenmore stack-able owners out there searching for a fix). I haven't taken the dryer apart yet but have ordered the dryer belt, rollers, pulley (a package deal with RepairClinic) and the felt bearing/seal. May as well do a full replacement of the likely components that are causing the squeaks and not spend any more time going through trial and error repairs.

If you haven't already, the dogs on your agitator are probably due for replacement as well. RepairClinic has an agitator package deal with replacement dogs and seals.

I'm trying t locate my IAT sensor on my ford escort 1994 and i cant find it


it is located on the inlet for the throttlebody on a section between the throttlebody and the air intake tube from the airbox. Do you have a North American model or a European model? The European model didn't require an IAT sensor. Just the North American model to meet EPA requirements. If it's a North Americal model, the sensor should be located in the air cleaner and have 2 small hoses attatched to it. have a good day !!

Dryer squeaking & Clunking noise


Your particular unit has quite a few things that could be making a real loud noise.....The idler pulley, blower wheel, rear drum rollers, front drum glides. Bottomline is you have to get in there and take the unit apart..vacuuming while there and if the unit is making such a noise, it will be obvious where the problem is.....If I can help further, I am here.......
