GE dryer Mod # DWXR463EG1WW is squealing. Does anyone know what is wrong with it and how I can fix it?


Sounds like a rear bearing . remove the 2 screws from the top when you open the door . this way you can take the top off . When you take the top off remove the screws on the inner left and right on the front panel. disconnect the belt from the pulley and motor and pull the drum out . then you will see the rear bearing . cheap fix but can be a pain. good luck

Kenmore clothes dryer squeaks loud to get going


Sounds like a bearing or the drive belt. Try turning the empty drum by hand. If it sounds normal you probably just need to replace the belt. If it make strange sounds when you turn it by hand then its probably the bearing.

The belt isn't a big deal but a bearing probably is.

The dryer is making a thump/thud noise as the drum turns. The dryer works fine but the noise sounds like something hitting everytime the drum goes around. Could this be the belt going out?

Very loud squeaking noise - like a noisy loose fan belt on a car.


The dryer needs to be rebuilt, new drum belt and drum rollers to cure this problem.

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.


The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

Dryer makes loud squeaking sound when spining


how old? Dryers squeak for one of 3 reasons..bad belt, bad motor or drum rubbing against dryer framework.
run it empty...intermittent squeaks usually are the drum...something's bent
continuous- is there any burning smell? If so, most likely the motor, if not, possibly the belt.
Open the top (most have screws or can just be pried open) and watch it run...identify the source of the sound if possible

try spraying the belt and motor with a little wd-40 and let it dry for a day, then try again.
If that doesn't help, repairman or new/used dryer...probably better off to find a decent one off of craigslist b4 paying to repair an already faulty machine

Dryer squeaks while drying sounds like drum rubbing on something


A squeak can also be a slipping belt or something caught between the drum bearings usually the front but could be the back one.

Dryer drum doesn't turn; makes a loud squeak sound


The problem is most likely your drum belt. Most run all the way around the outside of the drum, across a tensioner pulley, and around the motor.

This could be easy, or it could be a nightmare. Disassembly of the outer cabinet can be tricky. Some drums ride on pullies, while others slide on drum felts.

Your local appliance parts store can give you some guidance, and probably a few cards of qualified service guys. If you're mechanically inclined, and have a history of being able to take machines apart, AND reassemble without extra parts laying around, then give it a shoy. Otherwise, pay a pro, and save your Saturday.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
