I have a squeaky dryer


You have a belt that goes around the barrell and the belt has a tension pulley on a tension arm. Those pulleys go bad. It is an easy fix. It takes longer to get to the pulley than to fix it. It is a 4 minute fix, but it will take a while to take off the housing to get there.

How do I fix a squeaky belt on a minivan?


Post question is automotive section?

Is belt squealing? or is there a squeaky noise?

Squealing would denote belt slippage... belt might be loose, apply more belt tension at idler pulley (if possible). Consider trying a spray-on 'anti-slip" compound.

Squeaky noise could mean a bad pulley bearing.

Squeaky dryer.


Mice? I doubt it. It is more likely the drum or belt on the drum pressing on something next to it. Pull out the machine from the wall, unplug the machine from the power outlet and open the top back panel. Look inside where the drum is and see if there are scratch marks where the drum appears to be hitting or the belt scraping. Pull out the lint that is all over the place while you do this.

Squeaky Belt when dryer is running. However the dryer is working (heating) fine


Very possibly not the belt but the associated components like the drum: motor bearings bearing strips support:rollers (if you have them) etc. Truthfully i would just continue untill something malfunctions then do an extensive repair. Once you start repairing these small ****, it esculates into a relatively large expence.
