Sounds like the bearing seals may be getting worn. You will need to open the top of the dryer and look for wear marks.

Squeaky dryer.

Mice? I doubt it. It is more likely the drum or belt on the drum pressing on something next to it. Pull out the machine from the wall, unplug the machine from the power outlet and open the top back panel. Look inside where the drum is and see if there are scratch marks where the drum appears to be hitting or the belt scraping. Pull out the lint that is all over the place while you do this.

My dryer squells through the entire cycle.

You will need to replace the dryer belt. To do this follow the instructions below

  • Disconnect the power for your dryer before beginning any work. It can be disconnected from the wall outlet.

  • 2

    Open the top of your dryer cabinet and tilt it backward.

  • 3

    Use a Phillips head screwdriver remove the top two screws. Put the screws in a safe place.

  • 4

    Tilt the front forward and roll the belt around the drum.

  • 5

    Remove the old belt by lifting the drum slightly in order to give way to the front supports. You may have to open the dryer door to help the belt fall to the bottom of the basket.

  • 6

    Position the new belt by aligning it in the correct position before beginning to thread it through the motor pulley and idler. It will take someone with strong fingers and skinny arms to be able to get past the drum in the front. The dryer belt in a General Electric dryer has to be threaded looking in from the back.

    Dryer is making a loud banging noise.

    there are bushings or rollers at the front of the drum that do wear out this will cause the thumping as it turns. A local appliance repair place may be able to source out new guides for you.

    My kenmore elite HE3 elec dryer, model # 11082826101,has a loose piece in the dryer drum, how do I take the top off to fix it?

    There are three screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the dryer. Remove these screws and the panel will slide back, then lift off. You should have access the outer perimeter of the drum, control board and control panel.

    If you need to access the dryer bottom cabinet, remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and then come off.

    NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the dryer up can offer better access to the toe panel screws ( a section of 2x4 works well for this).

    There are some helpful exploded view diagrams you can use for reference at these following websites:

    Small items (like coins) can often get caught in the dryer drum baffles. They come off easily by removing the screws that hold them on place around the drum perimeter.

    CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before servicing anything inside the cabinet. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

    If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Kenmore 40922 front load

    This advice from Sears to replace baffles only applies to dryers. The baffles for the washer are installed from inside the basket. If you can't locate mounting from inside the basket, then the entire basket/tub will have to be removed and disassembled.(big job)... But I am pretty sure they mount from inside. Washer or dryer, there are three screws in the rear along the top. Remove screws, slide top toward rear and lift off.
