Dryer slow to start squeaks


The drum is belt driven, there is a belt tensioner on it too. You need to replace the belt.

My kenmore 84052 is making a squeaking noise


DRYER MAKES NOISES.

The pulleys or rollers. Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density gear grease to re oil/grease them.

The bearings by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.

The belt loose or worn can make funny noises

The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum

Dryer runs and heats but has squeaking noise. Drum seems to labor mid cycle and then shuts off. If I turn cycle to off and wait unit will resed and begin cycle again with normal heat. Squeaks in on off...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The squeaking sound comes when the belt is either broken or worn out and needs replacement or the idler pulley is bad. If you want to do this yourself then you can check this video on YouTube:

Dryer works, but makes noise.


Hi,
There are a lot of moving part that can cause noises or vibration when get worn out.
  • Make sure dryer is level, and on a secure floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.
  • Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a squeak.
  • Check for foreign objects below the lint filter:-Remove lint filter, and look down opening. If you need to stick your hand down the opening to remove an object, be careful because the edges could be sharp. It would be advisable for you to wear a pair of work gloves.
  • Foreign objects in the drum front seal and worn or loose drum slides can cause a metal scraping noise as the drum rotates.
  • Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)
  • A frayed or damaged belt will make a thumping sound.
It is normal to hear the sound of the drum as it turns. If your dryer is making unusual noises and the above suggestions do not resolve the situation, discontinue use of the dryer until it has been checked by a qualified servicer. Continued use may cause wear of other parts making the repair more costly.

Thanks..!!

Dryer makes a sound as if there's a marble loose in some rotating part. It doesn't seem to be coming from the drum, because when I disconnect the band from the motor and hand rotated the drum at speed...

Dryer makes loud squeaking sound when spining


how old? Dryers squeak for one of 3 reasons..bad belt, bad motor or drum rubbing against dryer framework.
run it empty...intermittent squeaks usually are the drum...something's bent
continuous- is there any burning smell? If so, most likely the motor, if not, possibly the belt.
Open the top (most have screws or can just be pried open) and watch it run...identify the source of the sound if possible

try spraying the belt and motor with a little wd-40 and let it dry for a day, then try again.
If that doesn't help, repairman or new/used dryer...probably better off to find a decent one off of craigslist b4 paying to repair an already faulty machine
