Sounds like the drum bearings are going bad, or at the very least need lubrication. thats what your problem is.

Frigidaire dryer gallery series wont spin


Hello Hannah Kottman - Sounds like the tub is unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

There is a squealing noise when the dryer runs. The belt seems to work fine, but there is a whistling/squealing noise when the dryer is on


The drum rides on a pair of plastic glides in the front. They get thin and their bracket begins to rub the drum.
The rollers tend to get a little noisy in time. I use HVAC oil (zoom-oil from ace hardware) to lube them because it is temp resistant, won't disapate, and is non flammable.

My dryer makes a squealing sound when running. I believe it's the belt on the tensioner pulley, but I have no idea how to get to the darn thing.


There is no easy way, but its more time consuming really. I'm not familiar with your particular dryer, but you''ll need to remove the top and front casing of your dryer and remove the drum to get to the pulley. Sometimes you can get to it via a compartment on the rear of the dryer as well. Also listen to make sure the squealing isn't coming from the drum bearings on the rear of the drum.

Grinding noise while drum turns


had same kind of problem.. made a horrendeous squealing at times.

turned out the bearing in the back was worn through. It cost me about $40 and 2 hours time, to open it up, clean out the whole dryer and replace the bearing. The works was all easy. It was just time consuming to vacuum and clean the unit to new status.

The bearing on mine, consisted of a big steel ball pivot, attached to the back of the drum with 3 screws, and a plastic bushing it sat in, attached to the back of the dryer.

the trick was finding how to open the dryer up, without damaging it. after that. it was all easy street.

Squealing!!


the noise is coming from the drum axle bushing that allows the drum to spin on it's axle. Gain access to the rear of machine and apply some high temperature grease that is found in automotive parts stores to the bushing. run it while observing spinning drum at rear for any possible other problem where squeal can be found such as drum slides.
