It more than likely your heating element. and the rear tub (plastic bearing is bad and needs replaced if you do the repair get some high temp grease to put in the bearing) it could be quite a task. But the first thing to do is check the household breaker/fuses.

Many front load dryers have teflon pads that the drum rides on, they can wear out and the drum could be riding on metal. I assume your dryer is a 220v. There are several things that could happen. The heating element could have a break in it due to age if it's and old dryer. Another thing could be the breaker. One leg of the breaker could have failed. If you have a voltmeter you can check the both legs of the breaker. You can check the heating element with the ohm setting on the voltmeter if the heating is intact it will it will read a certain amount of ohms. If the element is bad it will read "0".

Really Bad Squeeky Noise


It could be a squeal from the dryer belt. It could be from a belt that has gotten loose, like you hear on a car sometimes when it first starts up, but usually they don't get loose. They just break. Maybe something has gotten jammed between the dryer drum and the interior of the dryer making it hard for the belt to turn the drum and so it is squealing. Does the drum turn by hand without too much force and without squealing?

Dryer makes noise when i put clothes in. rubbing squeeky noise


Hello there
the dryer drum rests on rollers that keep it aglinged and straight
if one of these rollers start to wear out this will make the dryer drum misalign which in turn will make the dryer squeel also if the belt is starting to wear this will make it make noises too so i would suggest first opening up the back ofthe dryer and looking at the rollers and seeing if their is any wear from the belt or the rollers and if they are in need of replace ment replace the worn out part ok
Best regards richard
