I have a Whirlpoll estate dryer It makes a hi pitch sound How do i fix it


There is a belt that surrounds and drives the drying cylinder, or drum, made of similar material as a fan belt in an automobile, except much thinner material, and it encircles the drum. It surrounds the drum, goes thru a smaller motor/roller set and back around again. There is a spray that's used on auto belts to prevent slippage, called "fan belt lubricant" or similar name. It can be sprayed onto the belt thru holes in the rear panel, or if possible, from UNDER the chassis. It is possible to lift the dryer and tilt it backwards, but applying the spray from the rear is easier in some cases. The belt, or small roller assembly is probably the source of the high pitch sound. The tumbler or cylinder, spins on a single spindle but rarely needs lubricating. These parts are the only moving parts, therefore, the only bits of machinery that might cause the high-pitched sound you hear.

Dryer turns on when door is closed, heats up, no lint blockage, heats up, blower exhaust spins, belt intact, drum can be moved by hand. Drum won't spin when it's suppose to when you close the door, even if...


Hello- A little odd. It sounds to me like the belt is slipping. Sometimes they get stretched out enough that there is not enough pressure on the idler pulley for it to make good contact with the motor pulley. The Idler pulley may be broken as well or the belt has slipped off of it. Another possibility is that the belt has slipped off the motor pulley and is not being driven by the motor. You, or someone, really need to open it and see how the components look when it is on, if possible.

High pitch whine when start button is pushed. Tumbler not moving


The high pitch sound you describe sounds to me like the motor is running but the drum is not spinning.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?


Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.
