Loud squealing from newer Whirlpool Front Loading Dryer

Dryer was making intermittent squealing noises sometimes it was amazingly loud, sometimes not so bad. Still, I figured this couldn't be good so I wanted to find a fix. Read the stories here and everything pointed to the 'idler pulley', so I figured I'd give it a try. For me, access was the hardest part -- my laundry room is small and I can't easily get the dryer out or move it around. Not a problem with the part, just my own setup. Important to note that this repair is best done through the BACK of the unit, not the front. Once I got access to the back (removing AC and Water used for the 'steam dry feature') I also had to disconnect several of the electrical connectors to get the unit fully apart. Good news -- the actual replacement of the pulley took about 1 minute! It was just all of the moving and disassembly that took so long. The original idler pulley had worked its way off of the shaft and was out of place and causing the squealing. All is well now, and I saved a bunch by doing it myself. No more squealing!

Ordered the fuse first hoping it was just that simple, watched the video for how to replace, first step was to take the back of the dryer off, well I order to take the back off I had to take off the Electrical Cord, as well as he top of the dryer. Only to find out he part I was replacing was not back there. Found the tech sheet attached within he dryer though, and as it turns out only needed to take he front bottom panel off. Without testing he continuity I was just giving this a shot, the Thermal fuse did no fix it, so I tried the high Limit Thermostat and Fuse kit still no luck. Took out the Element to find I was physically cracked in 2 pieces, replaced that and I was back up and running. And all parts were found in the bottom front panel of the dryer, so beware before you watch the video and take our whole dryer apart like I did.

First tried repairing the old idler by cleaning and lubricating the shaft. That lasted for about a week but the squealing returned. Ordered the part and had it in a few days. Replaced the idler wheel and it's been quietly running like new for several weeks now. Now wife thinks I'm Superman.

Dryer stopped heating

  • Customer: Dorothy from Salisbury MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I needed a schematic to know exactly where the heating element was located and to be sure of what the part looked like. I found the part and after watching the video on removing and installing the heating element decided to replace the High Limit Thermostat and fuse as well. I also read some of the other reviews. The part arrived in 2 days and I did have a little help removing the old one before the parts arrived. Since the dryer was ready for the new parts when they arrived, the install was easier. I had a little trouble balancing the flashlight to see well enough and realized it was easier to put the element in then reinstall the unit, it was a little tricky getting the element sleeve back into the slot, THEN screw the thermostat and Thermal fuse onto the element housing. Since everything was open, I vacuumed all the lint out that I could, hooked up the vent hose, plugged the unit in and pressed the button. I then basked in the glow of a working heating element and I was back in business!. Thanks for the video and help. I LOVE PartSelect.

Followed the repair tests followed in repairman's sheet found taped behind front lower panel. When into diagnostic mode (found on paper) and tested the top front control panel buttons. All checked out fine except when I opened the door it beeped and showed a 4E code. So per the paper Tested the Moisture sensors (two metal strips inside of dryer where lint screen is) test passed, only three things left for this issue per the manual. Wire harness from two metal strips, longer wires going up from that harness to electronic control board , and the ECB itself(found under top lid of dryer). Since did not have a meter, Replaced the lower wire harness first - no improvement. replaced ECB - works perfectly now. Saved $$$ vs a new dryer.
