The most common problems for squeaks on a GE is the idler pulley or (belt tension pulley). There is a teflon bearing in the rear that can cause this as well. you will have to remove the front panel and remove the drum to repair both. you can see if the rear bearing is gone or if the grease is dryed out. Good luck

This condenser-dryer is squeaking all the time and I do not know where to lubricate it.

You have to lubricate the motor bearings. Please use the high temperature lubricant to your bearings. You may need to remove the motor first before it get lubricated. Otherwise just get it repaired dryer shop.

My dryer squeaks

First you should try to determine what the squeak is related to, does it happen every time the drum rotates or more frequently. This will give you some idea of where to look. You should disconnect it , take off the top and get someone to rotate the drum by hand while you listen. Moving parts are dangerous don't put fingers in. Commonly the outer drum bearing or belt idler need lubrication. Don't lubricate the belt. More details if you provide more clues.

Had a service call 7 months ago on 16 year old Maytag Stack w/d to lubricate drum roller that was squeaking. Squeak has returned. Any pointers on lubricating it myself, or is it worth replacing the drum...

Lubricating the bearings is usually only a temporary "quike fix".

Replace the bearings,and lubricate the bearing shafts with a lithium grease.

Asko TD 70 intermitent squeaking replaced belt and brushes about 2 yrs ago maybe a loose roler or replacement or lubrication?

For intermittent squeaking-

You have to remove the back of the dryer and expose the motor and drive assemblies.

Check the drive belt idler pulley
Check for any strange sounds coming from the motor
Check the drum support rollers - they support the dryer drum, usually in 3 places. They can sometimes be lubricated, but generally don't last that long because there is usually roller shaft damage by then, requiring replacement.

While drying for short time the dryer starts to squeak

Probably a dry bearing
.You would have to gain access into the dryer to establish which bearing/s it is.
You would then need to see if lubricating the bearing/s, would cure the squeak..
If it does not, then you may have to fit a new bearing/s.\
Hope this helps.

Squeak when running the dryer

It's the roller axles and/or the motor shaft. Remove the front of the dryer and lubricate same.

When dryer is on it continually makes squeaking sound

You need some lubrication inside the dryer. There are several pulleys and a belt tensioner that can be noisy if not properly lubricated. Be careful to use only an approved lubricant to avoid a possible fire hazard.
