Question about KitchenAid Dryers

Open Question

Kitchen Aid Superba Model KEYS777EQD. Dryer was making a screeching/squealing noise when started but would go away. Then it would run for so long and then shutoff, had to let it cool and could run it again for awhile. Now it has stopped working altogether, was told that the motor and blower needed to be replaced. Does this sound like the problem, and if so is the dryer worth the cost to replace these parts?

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. 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

I have a 95 Buick Regal.It makes a noise when running ,but if take the belt off it stops.


it depends what kind of noise, if its a licking noise the pulleys that the belt is being turned by could be bad (belt tensioner pulley ,Idler pulley etc.) if its a squealing sound like a high pitched whistle or like a rubber heal screeching on a tile floor constantly the belt is no good there is fabric on the inside of the belt and when it wears away you will get the chirp or squealing /screeching sound from this. inspection of that belt will tell you look at the grooves if looks like shiny rubber you found it if it doesn't and the fabric is there then a pulley is the problem bad bearing can make the belt slip resulting in the squealing good luck LATER MAN!

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?


Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.

Maytag atlantis dryer squeals very loudly when running


you have answered your own question! The belt will have become loose due to age/stretching. You hear cars making the same squealing noise when thgey rev up. Its a real squeal/screech. It may possibly be the drum rubbing on the chassis due to beariing failure, but doubtful.
So on some machines the motor is on adjustable brackets that let you move the motor away from the drum pully by loosening the bolts/nuts and then re-tighten. Don't leaver the motor down and then lock off the nut/bolt as this will make the belt too tight, and cause the belt to fail or the bearing to fail over time Take the back cover off the machine and all will be revealed.
best of luck it's a simple fix if your diagnosis is correct
