    dryer squeaks so loud that even closing the door to the laundry room does not help. Is out of warranty. Any ideas besides a new one?

    when starting dryer cold it will usually run for a while, but when it keeps running longer it tends to shut off. Will not start again until you let it sit. for 30 or 45 min.

I have the same problem. Replacing the front glides (two glides cost under $20 plus labor and service call). The second time it seems to be more than the front glides. Service tech says that it is the blower moving back and forth on the motor shaft. (Because of a worn indentation on the shaft..). Therefore, he says that I must replace the motor and the blower--parts cost approx. $290, plus labor and service call. Ouch! Also says that the plastic front support piece is worn. More money! So, I am looking at a new dryer instead of trying to patch up the one I have (it's out of warranty.)

Screeching noise during operation of machine


If it only screeches when the drain pump is running you can spray some crc or wd40 in to the bearing on the drain pump. That usually helps. You will have to turn power off at wall, tip machine back against a wall and get at the pump underneath on the right side at the front.

My Fisher Paykel is making a high pitched whine. Similar to some one running the finger around a wine glass.

Obnoxious screeching sound when the drum turns. Short consistent screech on revolution, which turns into one long non-stop screech. Stops after 45 seconds or so, then starts all over again with longer...

My Fisher Paykel dryer runs as normal just doesnt put out any heat.


Hi,
Usually when an electric dryer runs but stops heating, the heating element has failed and needs replacing. I don't know if you are a do-it-yourself type, but you can get the model/make/serial information and obtain the correct element at your appliance parts store.
I hope this helps... Good luck.

Fisher paykel dryer DE04-US6 just get a buzz sound when i push start button.


Open up the door and push the door switch and hit the start button and try to turn the drum by the baffle in the dryer and it it starts to go then you need a new motor.

Dryer Problem


Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.

This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).

This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.

If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.

Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.

ED55 dryer making screeching noises


sounds like the rear tub bearing has worn out that would explain the noise and if it got too bad the bearing can break causing the drum to stick and not be able to turn
