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.

My electric dryer makes a loud squeal while drying? what is wrong


Hello

Sounds like the belt is slipping from wear.Remove rear panel of dryer and replace the belt.
Its not very hard to do.

Belt wraps wround the drum and a pully on the motor,there may be an idler pully also.

Check these pullys and motor for free turning while the belt is off.

How to put belt back on drum on my dryer


You have to take the back off of the dryer and see the motor pully and the idler pully. slip the belt around the drum, around the mototr pully and usind a flat blade putty knife, work the belt over the idler pully so that it puts tension on the belt. you may have to loosen the idler pully housing bolts, but try it first with working it over the idler as that was set for optimum tension.

Howdy: Check for the bolts that hold the pully on. Loosen the bolts and the pully should stat to open. You may have to put on the belt then install the pully. Look close at it. Good luck - Doug

I need to puy a new belt onto my creda dryer model number 37742


Remove the old belt making note of the pullys that it goes around. The belt should have a make and model number on it. You can order a replacement online or go to your local hardware or Sears store. After receiving the belt and are ready to install, note that one pully will have a bolt or screw that you can untighten so that the pully will move back and forth so the belt will fit on. Pull the pully tight against the new belt and tighten the bolt or screw. This should work.

The belt goes around the pully so that the pully tension takes the slack out of the belt. Just like the serpentine belt on your car.
