The dryer drum sits on a gasket. Usually you can pop off the top and see if the gasket has failed. If the drum has slipped you may be able to re-seat it. If it has failed it will should be visible.

Kenmore elite front load dryer squeaking and burning smell

you have a bearing in the drum support that has frozen and now the rubber wheel is burning up. The bearing needs to be replaced ASAP. You could damage the dryer if you continue to use it.

My bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 dryer makes a squeaking sound when the load is light -- drying a larger/wetter load less likely to make the noise.

I had a similar problem with a different model Bosch dryer. First I made sure the dryer was unplugged. I found, after taking the front and rear panels off, that one of the front wheels that supports the drum was broken. I replaced the wheel and it works fine with no squeaks.

Dryer about 5-6 years old and does about 5-6 loads per week. last 2 months, with medium to heavy loads, has developed a loud squeak that coincides with drum rotation. light loads cause a lesser squeak, and...

drum rollers/glides, may be that the motor needs to be oiled, in which case you will need to unplug dryer and drill a hole in the casing not to deep just to where it goes through the casing, then moisten the cotton fabric. Hope this helps Tim:

We've got a Maytag MDE6000AYQ dryer that we love. It started squeaking two loads ago. It would squeak off and on during the cycle. This next load seemed to squeak worse, so I'm worried to use it any...

The squeak is most likely from the drum support rollers or the drum bearing. If it's the rollers, they're fairly easy to replace and often a drop of lubricant will solve the problem. This is just one supplier of such parts:

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?

GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

Dryer has a loud squeaking noise when you first start it up

Sounds like your drum rollers need lubrication or replacement.
If you have a front load machine, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum. Remove the drum and this will expose the drum rollers. Lubricate the drum rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil at the shaft.
Hope this helps

Vibration of Dryer

It may be off one of the guides. Or a balance problem. It may be a bit off balance. Now that you have a new bearing your machine is going to work better. It will spin faster because of the new bearing. When it spins faster you will get vibration. If it is not shaking badly, Try to load your washer balanced. If there are any more questions please feel free to ask. I will help you untill we have this thing solved. Please leave good feedback for me, it means a lot to me, and I will really help you all that I can...

Excessive noise/vibration

Vibration problem occurs on dryer/washers because of bad dampers generally. When drum is loaded, the load is distributed randomly, so its create vibration when drum spin in certain revolution. The dampers are supposed to take this vibration and minimize them.

There are more possibilities like drum dislocation or bended drum etc.

A Squeak

Could be dry drum bearing or jockey pulley dearing. take the rear cveroff the back of the dryer, and you will see the rear drumshaft and bearing.
Squirt some wd40 on the bearing, hopefully.this will cure the squeak.
