Usually there are two rubber wheels under the drum as well as the felt s and any nylon guides.
the wheels have bronze bush bearings, when the go they are noisy
~$9/pair.
easier to replace than the tub felts were

The dryer makes a screaching noise when running. It still has been drying our clothes, but the noise isn getting increasing louder. The dryer is only about 6 years old. Could this be a belt related...


the noise can come from 1) something stuck between the tub and the felt. 2) bad roller / axel two in the back 3) bad idler pulley 4) wore glides ( in the front bottom)

The dryer makes a loud noise and also a rubber smell develops after a 1/2 hour of use


My dryer did the same thing. I had to replace the front support glide assembly and needed 4 teflon glides.
The front part of the dryer runs over this plastic piece seen here upside down.
00087335.jpg
this part is about $50 CAN there are 4 plastic or teflon glides that fit into this.
My dryer had worn through the teflon glides and start wearing away this piece.
My dryer is a GE front load dryer. And I did get a burning smell because the dryer was wearing away the plastic. After the teflon strips wore down.
Hope this helps

Loud noise


could be that one of the bearings that the tub rolls on is wearing out and needs to be replaced or the belt pulley running to the motor is worn and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps

I have a fridgeair front load stackable dryer. The dryer tub has problems getting started rotating. At times it also makes loud noises coming from the back center of tub. In order to get tub started...


Frigidaire Dryers use a ball and socket in the rear to support the drum. The socket is made of a Teflon type of plastic that will wear out when the grease is no longer present. By now, the ball of the drum is probably grinding away at the metal support for the socket, thus the loud noise. At the same time the front seals are probably worn out. These two things combined is causing alot of friction keeping the drum from turning freely. The parts required to fix these issues are not that expensive. Getting the dryer apart to replace these items however is time consuming and easier with two people.
The top panel, control panel, front panel and the drum will all have to be removed.

Squeeky noise


I own a Frigidaire Heavy Duty Dryer The Model # is FDE436RES1. It is 10 years old. When running the dryer it makes a very loud squealing noise although the heat and the dryer still work. Is this a belt or roller problem or does it sound like something else. It is very high pitched and can be heard throughout the entire home. I do not know much about dryer troubleshooting so your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
