Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched nosies telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on!I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!

Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

My dryer makes an annoying squeaking noise while operating. What do you think it is?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Dryer is making an awful squeaking sound


two things- belt or drum. un plug machine for safety, visualy inspect belt, place machine on its side to see it make sure its clean, no rips and not loose. it is easy to replace, just note the way it is on before you take it off. stand machine back up,next try turning the drum by hand, if you feel scaping or hear odd noises, it needs to be removed, may be foreign object or needs felt replaced. if you are fairly handy, you could do this too

Squeak


check what is called an idler or tension pully. lubricating these can somestimes help but only a temporary fix. actualy its not a fix. only makes it quiet. replace them or call service these parts are easily accessable

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


there are 2 drum rollers at the back of the dryer. shut off power, pull drum and you will see 2 rubber wheels. there is a little plastis triangle that keeps the roller in place. try spinning the rollers . they probably will not spin too freely. remove triangles ,inspect inside of roller the stainless steel bearing may have gunk on it try to clean off . also check shaft roller rides likewise remove any debri use a little rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. also check the idler roller that routes the belt for the same things. good luck

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


you can check a lot of things. the motor itself, the rollers on the back, and the main bearing at the center of the drum. you can apply any lubricants to all of those rolling parts.

My Maytag dryer makes an aweful noise.


Typical parts that wear out and get noisy on that model are the two drum rollers (part # 12001541), the front drum glides #306508, the idler pulley Y303705 and the blower wheel 303836. None of these parts are very expensive, but to do all of them would definitely add up to the point that you might want to think about whether or not you want to keep the machine in operation especially after 10 years of good service.
