2 things the support rollers in the rear drum area are the most likely cause of the squeaking noise
#2 the blowing of the fuse can be relate to a clogged venting check to make sure the vent is clear ansd clean to the outside you can also run a load without the hose connected in the back to see if the fuse stays closed if not then you habve a teermostat issue

Dryer is squealing during the first few minutes its on then the noise stops. Is it the glides?

Depending on the dryer you either have a central rear ball bearing and glide pads in the front or you have 2-4 rollers supporting the drum. Any of these can squeak. Also the belt tensioner can occasionally squeak.

Dryer Squeaking/ Squealing

Could be a worn belt or, if it occasionally sounds like metal on metal, the felt that the drum spins against is probably worn through and needs to be replaced...

Dryer is squeeking


The motor bearings may be worn. Remove the drum drive belt and then start the dryer. If it squeals with the belt off then the motor bearings are likely worn.

There is a small roller that tightens the drive belt for the drum. They can squeak. Remove the lower front panel and you should see the small roller near the motor and belt.
Another is the two larger rollers that support the drum. You will see this if you remove the front lower panel. Another is where the drum rides on the upper round part of the door/opening and it has a plastic guide that separates the metal drum from the metal door/opening. Over time this wears out and the two metal pieces will squeak.

Hi, our Frigidaire dryer that is 4 years old is starting to squeak a lot. Do you have any idea what would be causing this and what I can do about this myself? Thanks, Terry

maybe the belt is getting loose, you can pull the front panel off and look at the belt rollers and tension of belt and make sure the belt is center of drum. Open door remove screws, some models have screws on bottom corners, and gently pry on top corners. Remove panel and inspect. Hope this helps tim

Drum won't always turn and belt squeaks

Start with a new belt, probably worn out. While apart check rollers that drum rolls on, make sure they spin freely and are not loose, check to dryer felts that connect drum to dryer, could be going bad also, also vacuum out dryer of all dust and lint (this has nothing to do with problem, but helps prolong life of dryer, you will be surprised at what you find).

Our dryer has a terrible squeak. We replaced the

The terrible squeak is probably the idler pulley shaft spalling in the idle pulley mount. When the idler pulley siezes to to pulley shaft it spins in the mount and makes a horrible racket.

It can be the motor bearings also but I doubt it at this time. With the belt off you can spin the motor and listen for any odd sound. If you hear nothing then the problem is definately the idler pulley assy.

It is normal for the drum to float in place. When there is a problem with the drum or drum felts, you usually hear a cyclic scrape or grinding sound that is concurrent with each rotation of the drum.

Thanks for using FixYa.

When we turn on our Whirlpool Supreme electric dryer, it heats up and dries clothes, but it is making a loud squeaking noise throughout the cycle...sometimes louder than others.

The squeaking noise can be caused by any of the following.

Location High:

Belt slipping on the dryer drum

Worn Drum seals but would sound more like a dragging noise

Location Low:

Belt tensioner pulley bearing frozen and the idler pulley shaft is spinning inside the belt tensioner assy.

Belt slipping on the motor bearing

Motor bearing is dry

Dryer problems

sounds like the belt is slipping, check belt and tensioner, or possible vent clog. verify vent is open and unobstructed by turning on dryer with no heat selected then go outside and make sure there is lots of air coming out exhaust outlet.
