Ge frontloader dryer is squeeking incessantly, high pitch squeek driving us all crazy. by manually turning the drum i can isolate the squeek, but cannot see anything wrong. does it need to be taken...


There is a teflon bearing that holds the back of the drum you will need to replace. To get to it remove the top cover, take off the control panel, remove the front cover, take off the belt, then take the drum out, ususlly by lifting it up as you pull it foward. While have it all apart I would reccomend replacing the teflon glides at the front that the drum rides on.

Dryer squeaks when turned on, recently is getting louder and louder as drum is turning. Is it worth getting fixed, it's six years old


The squeek is probably the front 'bearing' which is generally made of felt.

Pop the top, pull off the front, remove the drum. Clean the felt or replace it.

A better alternative is to turn up the radio so you cant hear the squeek.

If you do go to this trouble, you may want to replace the belt while you have it apart.

Personally, id let it squeek. It may be annoying but on the ohter hand, you know when it is operating and when it is finished now.

Squeeking noise when dryer barrel or blower wheel turns


Sounds like the fan blade hub has become worn. Remove the front to gain access and secure a hose clamp around the hub. It may be necessary to trim away some of the plastic vanes to allow it to fit snugly.

Dryer making squeeking noise


Check the dryer belt tensioner and pulley assembly. It be wearing out. You'll need to remove the back cover of the dryer to do this. Turn off the gas and/or electric before working on the unit.
