It'll either be the drive belt that goes around the drum needs replacing or the idler pully that keeps tension on the belt needs replacing. It is usually the belt. This is not a difficult replacement. A generic procedure is to remove the back of the dryer. You should be able to get to the belt to replace it. While you're in there, check the pully for smoothness of operation and that it rotates easily. If it needs replacing also, do it while you're changing the belt. If the belt seems to be in good condition, the pully might just need a drop or two of light oil.

Fedders dehumidifier making high pitched noise


Hi,
The fam motor bearings are dry and need oil..wd-40 with the long spray nozzle maybe the best way to get oil on the bearings... some motors are sealed and it is very dificult the get them quiet again...spray right where the shaft comes out of the motor and then lean the unit back so the oil runs into the motor and let it set for awhile..then try it...
