Hello- Depending on the model you have it is most likely either the front or rear bearing. The front bearing on some GE's is actually a series of 3 teflon strips attached to a plastic support and the rear bearing is a ball and socket type. The teflon strips do wear down over time and then the drum starts to wear into the plastic support. The rear bearing "socket" also wears over time and can cause the drum to sit a few degrees lower in the back and cause squeaking. It may fade as the dryer heats-up because some metal parts are expanding and plastic parts wear in a certain grooves, so to speak, once they have been moving for awhile. Unfortunately you will probably need someone out to disassemble the dryer and find the specific cause. You may be ok to just live with it for awhile but it could be causing more damage to the parts as time goes on, meaning a higher repair cost. Hope this helps a little, best regards.

SOURCE: Dryer makes noise like a bird chirpping.

You'll need to access inside the cabinet and oil the tires and belt pulley. Hope this helps!

Why is my hampton bay fan making a constant chirping sound even when off


Never heard of a chirping noise in a fan. Did you check the inside of the housing for a bird? That's just a low-end store brand for Home Depot. Take it back!

My 2005 trailblazer makes a bird chirping noise. Exactly like birds. My mechanic replaced the belt but it is still making the noise.


If is a serpentine belt, take it out and check the belt tensioner. some of them have a screw that allows for tightening/loosing the belt. Sometimes it looses some bearings and it could chirp.

Makes a chirping sound when the car is initially started


Have you checked the engine bay for a bird's nest ? LOL
Seriously now, I think it is one or more of your drive belts, just when starting to turn all your engine bits. Have those tightened or replaced as needed and you should be OK.

Why does my 2005 chevy trailblazer make chirping noise when I first start it inthe morning but goes away when vehicle warms up


Usually the noise is a belt. The surface of the belt changes as it warms up.

My 1997 Malibu is holding up very well. Recently, I have noticed a slight chirping noise whenever I idle (especially after starting the car) and when I accelerate to about 45 or 50. It is NOT a whine...


Remove the serpentine belt notating the direction of travel. Start the vehicle long enough to confirm the chirp is either still present or it has stopped.

If the chirp stops manually spin all the pulley by hand to see if you can duplicate the sound. If nbothing else is making noise and the belt is in good shape put the belt back so that it travels in the opposite direction. If the noise persists replace the belt. If the noise goes away see how long it lasts. I have had many that have not returned after rotating the belt.

One other thing you can try is putting a small dab of di-electric grease on the belt, with the engine off of course. Spread the dab around a little with a finger, again with the engine off. Start the vehicle, give it a couple of seconds to let the grease work around the belt. If the noise goes away replace the belt.
