I have a ge profile 2006 front loader dryer that is making an awful squeaking noise!!


It will be your back bearing or front glider pads that are bad you will need a qualified service technician to come out to repair it unless its eating thru the metal on the inside then its not worth fixing sorry for the trouble and good luck. You can check the front pads by open the dryer door looking on the inside of the dryer towards the top front and see if it is resting on the plastic clip or metal that will tell you if its the fron or back.

I have a maytag dryer that has a squeek


It's difficult to tell what might be causing a specific squeaking noise, but check the following:

The belt tensioner
The drum support rollers

These would be the two most common causes. You will need to remove the back panel of the machine to check these items. You may be able to lubricate the tensioner and support roller bearings temporarily, but if they are squeaking, they may be failing.

Dryer is making an awful squeaking sound


two things- belt or drum. un plug machine for safety, visualy inspect belt, place machine on its side to see it make sure its clean, no rips and not loose. it is easy to replace, just note the way it is on before you take it off. stand machine back up,next try turning the drum by hand, if you feel scaping or hear odd noises, it needs to be removed, may be foreign object or needs felt replaced. if you are fairly handy, you could do this too

Loud Grinding noise in Dryer


I know this prob is old, but I had the very same prob with my dryer (very loud squeaking noise). The prob was that there was a screw stuck between the rotating part and the stationary part. Meaning - look inside the dryer (main area - where the clothes go) and rotate it by hand. You may hear and see something causing the friction. Gerard
