    Mine is doing the same thing. The squeak is so loud it's driving us crazy but it'll cost $90 just for a service call. I don't know if there's a real problem or if it just needs some WD40 somewhere? Any ideas?

The sound is thr support rollers or the idler pully, the support rollers located under the drum to the back the pully holds the belt tight. look for meatle shavings or rust dust on rollers.

Dryer starts then makes aweful noise then stops timer keeps ticking then when you try to start it again it doesnt do anything


If it is a grinding noise then it is probably a bad bearing. If it is more a squell it could be the belt slipping in addition to a bad bearing. If it is a banging sound it could be the belt.

My Whirlpool Duet dryer is making a loud squeeling noise when drying.


Hello, the squelling noise from your dryer may be coming from the drum rollers. May need to be opened up and lubed. It can also be the idler pulley, also can be lubed. Disconnect power, remove lower panel, and see if you can isolate the noise. Oil where necessary. If you can't get to it, the drum wil need to be removed. If something is locked up or damaged, it will need to be replaced. Caution: Don't stick fingers near moving parts when running :-> Hope this helps, Rich

The drum makes a squelling noise. the clothes are drying but the noise is very loud


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Dryer starts squelling and cuts off after a few seconds. checked the belt and it seems fine


the squelling you are hearing are the bearings on the motor. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the motor. The part number on the motor is 279827 and price is around $105

Maytag dryer - makes squelling noise when you turn it on


Your glides are getting thin. Not unlike that of shoes on an automobile the glide will wear down and start the old metal to metal screaching.
Get the front off and get the drum out. Remove the glides and replace them. Or flip them over if you are
a cheapskate. LOL Use this GUIDE that tells how to access yer dryer innards and a lot of other cool stuff. Hay I wrote it!
