Frigidaire affinity front load dryer


You need an upper felt and a rear drum bearing. If you buy the felt make sure you get the special adhesive to install it. The squeal maybe part of this or it could be the rear drum bearing. You can learn how to replace the rear drum bearing here in the article I wrote. http://gomestic.com/do-it-yourself/how-to-replace-a-frigidaire-dryer-rear-drum-bearing/

I have a dryer that is making squeal as the


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug 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.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

My dryer is making a really loud noise when the clothes are spinning in the dryer. There is a loud rumble and squealling noise.


The squealing noise coming from your dryer is caused by the front glides located on the top bearing, they act like a pad against the drum and when gone, will make an awful squealing. part number for the 4 glides that may be needed is WE3X87 this is a common problem as it is a wearable part. if you don`t replace these in time it will grind all the way through your top bearing and start to deteriorate your drum. if its been like this for a while you may also need a GE drum bearing they come in short and long sizes. and are relatively cheap to replace.hope this helps

Thanks

Noisy dryer......when engaged...making squeaking/squealing noise.


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Dryer really squeals


Ok this is a really broad question, Kenmore will squeal when a belt tensioner or motor bearing is out, a frigidaire or small kenmore with control panel above the door and serial number starting with x will squeal when the bearing is out on the drum or the motor. This is a general cover on dryer noise with a model like Kenmore series 80 I can give solutions ok?
