I have a squeaky dryer


You have a belt that goes around the barrell and the belt has a tension pulley on a tension arm. Those pulleys go bad. It is an easy fix. It takes longer to get to the pulley than to fix it. It is a 4 minute fix, but it will take a while to take off the housing to get there.

Dryer squealing


Squealing on dryers is often caused by fibres accumulating around the front of the drum. Does pushing/twisting the dryer out of it's normal shape stop or change the squealing? Does it squeak if you turn it by hand?

If so unplug the machine and make sure it's cool, remove top and side covers (normally pretty easy) and give the inside a good vacuuming with a crevice tool, if you can get to the air chamber at the back of the drum that's where most of the offending fluff will be as it gets through the filter and fired into the back of the machine.
Put it back together any you're done.

Kenmore series 80 Gas Dryer, in back of the dryer there is a fan at the bottom that squeals when I turn the dryer on. Is this easy to replace or oil to resolve the squealing. Suggestions are...


that fan runs off the motor shaft and can be lubed with some spray lube,, be sure that its not the belt thats squealing, check it for cracks, and bare spots

The dryer squeals on start up and quiets after 40 seconds or so. I took it apart and the belt and pulley seem ok. How do I know if they are worn? I thought it was a problem with the felt liner at either...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you have a drum bearing, going bad, or your belt tension pully. it stops squealing because the unit heats up and the metal expands. you can also try spraying (WD40) the belt tension pulley..

Loud squealing sound when the basket first spins up this is a Kenmore stacked set, washer on the bottom, and dryer on top


Your problem could be a bad bearing...The drum rides in a bearing at the rear middle of unit..Its basically a plastic insert...When the dryer is first started the bearing will squeal until the plastic warms up..Normally you will hear the squeal at the back middle of dryer...Your problem may also be the belt tensioner...Again a plastic wheel with a metal bearing inside...Normally this squeal will be from start to finish..

Squealing dryer.


Squealing usually refers to dry bearings. And the only bearings on a dryer that I know of, are where the shaft of the drum attaches to the back. But these seldomly give trouble. Can you tell where in the dryer it's coming from?

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...


It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.

Kenmore 400 dryer squealing noise


A little lubricant on the pulleys near the belts will go along way. Its vereasy to access these parts front the back of the machine with a 1/4 hex head screwdriver.
