I keep hearing really bad squeaking noises in my dryer and i dont know if its the belt or the pulleys in the bottom of dryer. was wondering if i could get manual or a diagram on how to get the pulleys or the belt off to check
I Have A Neptune Dryer and this solution helped a little bit. I removed the door to my dryer and the front of the dryer opened up. What i saw was 8 years of lint.
Next i started the dryer and checked the belt tensioner and found it was squeeking, in another fix suggestion it said to remove and grease the tensioner. this is a bad idea due to all the lint and dirt that is circulated in side the dryer. (No not in the Place where you dry your clean clothes). what happens when you put grease on the tensioner it will collect lint and dirt causing it to clogg up faster and wear out.30 Minutes later dryer dries and no squeeking. Hoooooray.

Re: real bad squeaking noise in dryer
There should be a access panel in the back of the dryer to get at the belt and pully. You can check the belt operation from there. If that all seems good you will need to remove the front of the dryer and check the drum supports in the front and the rear support rollors.If you hear the noise more from the front I would say the front supports are the ones thst should be replaced. And yes you can purchase a repair manual for that dryer at a parts store. Good Luck

If you take the belt off and there is no noticeable in/out, up/down, or side to side movement of pulley and there is no noise when rotating, a new belt may be all you need. Make sure you check ALL of the other belt driven components including idler pulleys and belt tensioner pulley. A worn tensioner can squeak also.
dont spray that on the belt lol
that stuff is flamable i think lol
you most likely have bad phelt glides
they are pads that sit between the drum and the drum support and when that wears out it squicks or maybe you have a bad idler pulley which is what holds the belt maybe its rusty or something but most likelt its the pads
Your particular unit has quite a few things that could be making a real loud noise.....The idler pulley, blower wheel, rear drum rollers, front drum glides. Bottomline is you have to get in there and take the unit apart..vacuuming while there and if the unit is making such a noise, it will be obvious where the problem is.....If I can help further, I am here.......
Yes check the brake. Just open the back panel and look under the machine. Check the brake latch and make sure that when the unit starts to spin that the brake backs itself off and also make sure that the bad is not worn down. If it is then replace it. A few screws and off it comes. To check the pulley and the belt there is really no wrong way to do it. First look at the belt and make sure that it is not cracked or really smooth. If that checks out ok then make sure that it is attached to the pulley fully and that the pulley is not bent
