My dryer will run and dry clothes but as soon as the drum starts to turn it has a constant squeeling noise ( not a squeek like the wheels would cause) what is my problem and how can I fix it?


some dryers has a center bearing on the rear of the drum, once this bearing dries out it will make noise along as the drum turns.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

My kenmore 417 wahser making too much noise, it looks like the inner tub hitting the outer plastic housing. How can I fix it?


Have you tried moving the clothes around in the drum to balance the drum BEFORE you was them? If that works, you have solved the problem! Most people forget that when cloth gets wet it gets heavy so leaving the clothes unevenly placed in the drum dry will make a real problem when they get wet!

My dryer is making loud screaching noises. Everytime I turn it on to dry clothes is makes very loud screaching noises.


Sounds like it needs what are called glides or felt. This is what keeps the metal drum from contacting the metal housing. If this is let go too long the drum can be ruined

Dryer thumps when running, clothes get stuck...


It always helps if you list the brand and model number in your post. I would look at the seam on the drum to see if the weld has cracked. (right at the front and / or rear of the seam.)

Maytag neptune washing mach.mod. mhw2000aww is making a very loud spinning noise and leaking from the rear of the tub.


  • sounds like the drum bearing is bad, which also damaged the drum seal.
  • the drum bearing and seal is on the back of the washer under the large pulley.
  • the brown splatter is an indication of the leak.
