Squeaky Door....embarrasing!

1: White Lithium Grease
2: Silicone Grease

Either will work just as well, though lithium may be easier to find at the local auto-parts store...and a bit cheaper.
* They silicone comes in a spray which makes it easier to get to the hinges.

In a pinch, a can of Liquid Wrench will cure the noise, but it doesn't offer the long-term benefits of grease.

** There are 2 sets of hinges, upper and lower...and be sure to get the rollers on the guide arms.

Loud squeaking when you first turn on the dryer, it usually calms down after the dryer has gotten warm and the squeak is not so loud. Also tags from clothes are getting caught around the inside rim of the...

The problem is your bearing is nearing the end of its life. I just had mine apart and put a touch of axle grease on the drum main bearing, I also put a touch of this on the idler roller shaft (avoid getting any on the belt). Do not use petroleum jelly (Vaseline product) as it will turn into a liquid at the temperature the dryer runs at .

I have an Amana gas dryer that is squeaking. Does something need to be lubricated? If so can I do this myself?

Good Afternoon,
Lubricating would be just a temporary fix. You need to replace the drum rollers. If you think you can do it yourself I'll try to walk you through it. Once the rollers are worn they start squeaking and squealing at a very high pitch. This happens because the roller bushing spinning on the shaft has dried out from the heat. The weight of the clothes in the dryer plus the drum itself rests totally upon these rollers. If you decide to install new rollers clean up the shaft with lite emery cloth then wipe clean. Next apply "High Heat" Lithium Grease to the shaft and inside the new roller bushing, they will last 2 to 3 times longer. Let me know if you need guidance if you attempt to change the rollers yourself.
Have a great day!

GE Spacemaker washer/dryer

If you can get it apart, you should be able to fix it yourself. This is a tricky task though (I've seen customers spend hours just trying to change a belt, which you'll have to remove), so you may want to pay the money and have someone come out.

It is hard to say without hearing the noise for myself, but my best educated guess would be that the dryer drum bearing needs to be lubricated. You should lubricate it with white lithium grease, about 1.5 ounces of it.

In order to do this, you will have to take the dryer front off, remove the belt from underneath the drum and then remove the drum. You will see a bearing on the backside of the drum (looks like a post with a ball on it). You will see where that inserts on the back wall of the dryer. You should put the grease in the insertion point, then put the dryer back together again.
