Question about GE Dryers

1 Answer

I am hearing a very loud chirping noise as my dryer works. I have disassembled the dryer in an effort to find the source of the noise. I found no obvious breakage. I intend on replacing the tub drive belt and maybe the bearing which attaches the brum to the rear of the unit. do you concur? I would appreciate any comments. the model number is ddg7189vslwh. Thanks

The rear drum bearing is the most common place I see noise on this unit. You will also won't to check the front pads the drum rides on and the idler pully for the belt. GE parts can get expensive so I would look it over good before buying anything.

Why does my Estate dryer sqeek or squeal so loud


I just had a similar problem with my Whirlpool dryer. It would squeek very loudly and then chirp a bit and then go quiet.
Took the back off and found that the belt tensioner arm pulley that drives the drum turning had stopped spinning. Sprayed some silicone on the hub a couple of times and it freed up and is working again. Everything is fine for now. I'm going to order a new part 'cause I know it will just happen again when the silicone wears out.

The dryer has a loud, high pitched squeek


Hello Robin, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is making a loud high pitched squeaking noise. This noise could be coming from your belt, motor, or spider arm. In order to find out which component might need to be replaced you would need to disassemble the dryer. We would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper repair. Improper disassembly of the dryer could result in personal injury or a problem with the dryer later in its life cycle. I hope that this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Very loud metal on metal screeching noise maytag model LDE8414ACE


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Loud metal-metal "screeching" sounds will eminate from the front bearing glides, (click on link below), for a picture of the glides. Link provided by www.repairclinic.com, they provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams.
You may also want to inspect for foreign objects in the front and rear drum seals and in the blower.
Drum rollers may sometimes cause loud noises also.

Dryer making chirping noise while drying.


If this is a GE/Hotpoint dryer then I can tell you exactly what it is. The rear drum bearing is worn down. WE3X75. To replace it you must remove the drum. This involves opening the door and removing all screws holding down the top. Then removing those holding the front on. Then removing the drum itself. This is not a hard job for a mechanically inclined indiviual.389d186.jpg
