My washer makes a loud squealing noise when it spins, what is wrong


Hello Kathy McAlister - Typically, when the washer is making or produces a squealing sound is due to an overloaded load. I recommend running a cycle with less clothing. If issue continues, then consult with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issue like a faulty belt or a bearing/pulley suspension problem. The washer could possibly have broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit.

My GE dryer is making a real loud noice while drying model #DBXR463ED2WW


hELLO THERE
If your dryer is noisy, check these: Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Loud rumbling noise with slight vibration


Normally the noise you hear is caused by the drum rollers having flat spots on them or needing lubricant.
If this is what is wrong It will make a kind of thumping noise.
When they need lubricant they will normally make a squealing noise also. You would lube the shaft and bearing area of the roller, using a good machine oil...something like "3 in One" oil.

Loud squealing noise from Drum belt looks fine other solutions


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Kenmore 417.81042000 Electric dryer has loud squealing sound


My dryer of the same model number had the same issue. The teflon/plastic wear points are worn out or have fallen off. They are about $22.00 plus shipping at the site below. Disconnect the power, lift (with force) the top off at the front of the dryer and you will have access to remove and replace.

Felt glide assembly - Upper felt seal with three glides attached. Comes with adhesive.

you need to replace the inner plastic "shell" and the teflon pieces that the drum rides on. The dryer drum has eaten thru the teflon slides, and has probably started eating the shell away also.

About $40 in parts available on line will fix the problem.
