Whirlpool dryer was making loud squeaking noise. Now it is not turning at all. Makes a noise when you turn it on, but stops completely.


Check the drum belt. Check the drum rollers on the back & glides on the front that the drum rides on also check the idler pully. Check the felt the drum rides on in case it came loose and won't let the drum turn. Did it hum when you started it if so could be the motor. Good luck

Drum not turning, hear humming noise


the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.


The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Thanks for using FixYa!

Dryer won't spin, but heats up - belt is okay


the motor may have seized up, or the drum bearings are shot.

Dryer Not Tumbling


Sounds like belt problems.

Dryer is making loud thumping noise.


Take off the back panel of the dryer and look at the motor and belt turning the drum. There may be something caught on the drum and is pinned in place causing the noise. The motor could be loose on the platform and needs to be tightened. It is probably something physical and seen causing the noise.
