Question about Frigidaire Electric Dryer

Open Question

I have Frigidaire Electric Dryer Model# AEQ6500CFG0. It was working alright, quietly, but I have noticed it is making noise (Grrrr Grrrr) while running. its not constant noise but you can hear the difference like Grrr sound goes "wown wown wown...." If you know what I mean. It is loud, and so much so that I cannot use it at night time when electric rates are low :( I read it here that It could be motor. I am ready to buy motor but how can I be sure it is before I spend? Motorl part# 131560100.

SOURCE: electric dryer runs quiet initially

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 drum 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 lint filter, and the two screws that hold the lint filter housing in place to 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.

My dryer makes a really shrill sound when drying. Could it be a bearing going bad?


Hi jaglassburn
Yes your noise is quite possibly a bearing.
