Question about Frigidaire GLER341A Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire dryer that squeaks. I was told to look at the belt to see if it had been worn, so I took 4 screws out of the back, and I now gather that they aren't ones that I was supposed to remove. When I try to put them back in, whatever they were holding in place is not in place any longer. How do I get everything back in order? Also, when I scooted the dryer out, I discovered a dead bird in the actual dryer hole where the duct connects. Could this be a contributing factor to the squeaking?

Yes the bird was stuck in the blower wheel, you may have removed the heater, round plate on back of machine. Unless you know how to get in machine call a local repair man to reattach the heater, the cost should not be much since there is not parts.

Electric dryer frigidaire fse447ghso has a terrible squeeling noise when running

Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Putty knife
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • WD 40
tyn-hp.gifGet what you need for every
project at
    • 1 Disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet or the breaker/fuse box. Be sure that the dryer is disconnected before you continue.
    • 2 Raise the top of the dryer. You will do this by inserting a putty knife into the crack between the top and front panel. Push against the spring clips to release. There will be one clip on each side of the dryer. Once the top has been released you can disconnect the wires to the door switch located on the right side on the backside of the front panel.
    • 3 Using a Phillips head screwdriver remove screws holding the front panel to the side panels. Pull the front panel away and lift off the bottom clips to remove it completely.
    • 4 Remove the belt from the idler pulley. The idler is located behind the blower/motor unit. When the belt is free you can slide the belt to the back edge of the drum. Lift it straight up to disengage the rear bearing from cradle.
    • 5 Pull the drum out through the front of the cabinet. You will be able to see the drum support ball on the back of the drum and the cradle holding the ball.
    • 6 Apply a generous portion of supplied grease or spray WD 40 into the cradle. In almost all cases, this will resolve your squeak. Once you have greased the drum to your satisfaction, you can reassemble the dryer.

Hi, our Frigidaire dryer that is 4 years old is starting to squeak a lot. Do you have any idea what would be causing this and what I can do about this myself? Thanks, Terry

maybe the belt is getting loose, you can pull the front panel off and look at the belt rollers and tension of belt and make sure the belt is center of drum. Open door remove screws, some models have screws on bottom corners, and gently pry on top corners. Remove panel and inspect. Hope this helps tim

Frigidaire dryer model # FDEB34RGS2 Squeaking

There is a tension pulley that holds pressure on the belt, as well as wheels that the drum sits on. A drop of oil on the bearing of each one should solve the problem, unless the wear has gotten too far, and need replacing.

Runs but noisy

Look in the drum. If you see 3 screws in about a three inch circle in the center of the back, then it rotates on a ball and socket. These get dry and or loose. You can try greasing it with a very high temp grease (try one for lubing disc brake calipers on cars) or it may need to be replaced. If you don't see those screws, it probably runs on rollers which either need spray lube (such as WD40) or replacing.

Intermittent Squeaking

You know how when the pads on your car get worn they start that noise? Well the bearing that holds the tub has a metal bracket. When that plastic wears down it begins to makes those noises. If left alone the metal bracket will eventually cuut into that drum bearing like a guillotine. I have pictures. Have the women and small babys leave the room: Click (HERE)

Real bad squeaking noise in dryer

Yes check the brake. Just open the back panel and look under the machine. Check the brake latch and make sure that when the unit starts to spin that the brake backs itself off and also make sure that the bad is not worn down. If it is then replace it. A few screws and off it comes. To check the pulley and the belt there is really no wrong way to do it. First look at the belt and make sure that it is not cracked or really smooth. If that checks out ok then make sure that it is attached to the pulley fully and that the pulley is not bent
