Question about Fisher and Paykel SMARTLOAD DE62TG1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

A friends dryer is squeaking quite a bit. I have not seen it yet and she has said it uses magnets. I am thinking it is a belt issue, but again have not seen it. She has been using it for a couple of months while it squeaks and just ignores it, but I have told her I will look at it and wonder if anyone has any advice before I look at it.

Check the drum rollers, they are normally the cause for squeeks and squalls..Use some good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil to lube the shaft fo the rollers. That should solve the noise problem

I have worked on some dryers of my own. The first thing I do is either purchase or go to the library and look at the maintenance/repair manual. These manuals have trouble shooting sections that are very helpful. Also, google it. I found several sites that appear to be very helpful. Squeaking is usually dry bearings some located in the rear of the unit, worn belt, worn carrier bearings or belts.

the rollers or belt idler may be corroded, use mineral oil or special bearing lubricant. DO NOT USE WD-40 OR 3 IN ONE OILS. you may find that they may need replacement.

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.

Gas dryer runs but no heat

Those coils are probably getting hot and quitting then after a long time they cool off and work some more then quit again.62a13a2.jpg2720ab1.jpg

Makes squeaking noise when running

A common problem with many dryers is the wearing of the guide slides or wheels. Different dryers use different methods of hold the drum in place by giving it something to “ride” on. These guides can be either in the front or the back, but usually the back ones wear out first. This is because the drive belt is in the back and puts a bit of extra stress on the back of the dryer drum. The belt can also causes squeaks or “bumps”, thumping, etc… so it is important to either change everything or determine which part is causing the problem.
When these guides or the belt wears it can cause squeaks, thumps, bumps, slow rotation, etc…
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Dryer will not work1

Squeaking noise often indicates problem with drive belt. If belt broke, drum will no longer rotate. Belt is similar to fan belts used in autos. Ck Sear's website for parts diagram of yr dryer. If it shows a drive belt, I would start there.

Loud noise when dryer runs

Two items on two different dryers can make this noise. One is the belt tensioner pulley and the other is the bearing on a Frigidaire dryer.

Squeaking due to weight of clothing

When you need this kind of noise and there is no abnormal vibration, then it depends on the drive pulley that pull the belt.
If it depends on the weight, and you get vibration it can also depend on bad dumper pads.
Here you can locate dumper pads and drive pulley below the tub.
Both parts are serviceable, repair should not be expensive.
If you need to contact a repair service, you can use the number listed on the owner manual.

Dryer squeaks when I use it

Hi, I had a squeaky Zanussi TC482W. Had it apart (easy to do) by taking the back off. Cleaned out fluff from around the drum and greased the rear bearing. Reduced the amount of squeak but still there. Took it apart again and almost by accident discovered that the bearing that the shaft at the rear of the drum sits in is actually in two parts. The actual bearing is shaped like the olive you get in plumbing compression joints and should be free to swivvle in the housing to allow some flexibility in drum rotation. A squirt of WD40 and some gentle wiggling with a piece of dowel soon had it free and its now flexible enough to take up the slight movement of the drum about its axis . Problem solved.
