SOURCE: dryer makes squeaking noise

If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, open dryer door, remove screws going up into top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side.

SOURCE: dryer drum causing squeak

Most likely the front support bearing. If this is the problem you will likely have to replace the slides too. The wizards have a ten year warranty. The bearing is part number WE3M26 and the slides probably need 3 or 4 of them are we1m333. Hope this helps.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing

you need to replace the rear drum bearing by removing the front panel lower screws and then remove the top cover and lean back and secure so as not to break wires to control panel,then remove drum belt,lift out drum and replace with bearing kit

My bravo washer is not starting a cycle when I press start button. Also water is still in tub from last load that did not drain.


Sounds like you washer is trying to spin out and becoming unbalanced and cutting off.. Move timer to spin and see if water spins out. If so try running a load and say with it so if it becomes unbalanced you can arrange clothes before returning timer runs out.

Washer make sounds, like brake sliding during mid cycle


Could be that your washer is unbalanced internally causing the tub to be rubbing against something else internally. Also check that your fan belt has automatic tensioning when it spins the tub.

Is this a GE Washing Machine? This sounds like one, it sounds like the shifter coil has failed, this it's not locking to engage the agitator. So it's basically stuck in spin mode, this way, even though the tub does not turn.

The drum seems to have become detached from the inside and has been scrapping against some plastic


The support bracket on your inner tub has probably broken. It involves replacement of the inner tub (drum) and probably the outer tub depending on the extent of the scraping. The parts will have a 5 year warranty, but the labor/service charge is your responsibility. Labor can be a bit pricey because of the extensive labor involved.

remove the back cover and visually inspect the small fan under the fridge, chances are the fan or blade has become unbalanced or the mount has come loose or failed.

Check if the hose from the tub to the drain area has come off; refit carefully. This could happen if the tub is unbalanced, happens sometimes.
