Squeaking noise coming from front of the dryer

  • Difficulty: Easy

First - I got help diagnosing the problem by typing in "Sqeaky Dryer" into YouTube - they have videos for so much in there, it is always where I start. The repair was simple - open the front door and remove the two screws just inside the door holding the front to the dryer top. Pull the top up and away. Remove two screws holding the front to the rest of the frame, but don't remove it. Just pull it out about 10 inches and let it lean out with either bailing wire or a straightened coat hanger. Unscrew the light bulb, remove the old drum with the slides, then put the drum back right the way it came out. Be sure to replace the slides whether it looks like they need it or not.

My son ordered the part, but gave up installing it. We called in a professional appliance repairman because the dryer had to be partially dismantled to remove the drum and a belt so three sets of holes could be aligned to secure the replacement diffuser. My daughter had to lend a hand to hold one piece in place while the repairman threaded the screws because the drum was too deep for him to be able to reach both front and back pieces. Definitely not a one-person job for this particular model.

It was as easy as the repair film said it was . But after spending the money for the upper and lower baring seals I put it all back together and the motor started making a loud noise ? I took the drum and everything out and started the motor without the drum just the motor was running and the danged motor is going out now !I checked the price of a new motor its not to bad but with all of the parts I have put in this thing I could have paid part of what it would have cost for a new dryer ! I put it all back together and hope it last long enough to at least recoup some of what I have spent ,But the new parts work good !

Loud squeak like nails on a chalkboard.

The video was a great help, but when working on my general electric I removed the control panel screws and lifted the panel and the top and made it very easy then trying to get the top off without moving the control panel. Also, on general electric dryers covering the wires was a lint guard but using needle nose pilers going through the guard holes you can pull off and reattach the wires then using fingers. My repair time took longer then what was posted by others, I took time to clean all the lint ducts on the machine before putting it back together. Runs smoother, drys in less time, and the noise is down to a steady quiet hum.

Timer would not advance

Followed instructions shown in online video. Took back off and located timer. Transferred wires from old timer to new timer to not misconnect them. Only problem was twisting and removing old timer. On video tech twisted it off by hand. With factory installed timer that was impossible. Required the use of pliers. Twisting the new timer on was easy by hand. All in all the most time expended was in getting the tools necessary.

watched the Video on PartSelect.com Before I did the repair. . ordered the parts that where suggested.. Once the parts arrived to my home I again watched the repair video and proceeded to do the dryer repair with ease! I replaced the Drum Bearing slide, Front Drum Bearing and the Drum Bearing Slide.. It was a very easy repair to do and saved me a lot of money by doing it myself! The Video that showed how to do the repair was very helpful as well. .

The clothes would get caught where the drum slide should be (it was almost totally worn down) and would leave black marks. I watched Parts Select youtube video. Bought the parts needed from Parts Select. They arrived within a couple of days. I replaced the 2 drum slides and no more getting caught. Took about 20 minutes.

The replacement handle, though it didn't look like the handle it was replacing, fit perfectly. Simply put the 'hinge' parts in place and then snapped the handle right onto the dryer; a perfect fit. Same for the filter - removed the old one, took out the remaining lint/dust and replaced the filter with the new one. Took no time at all, and works beautifully.

Excessive noise while dryer drum rotating

The Felt Drum Seal actually fell apart and got pulled into the area between the drum and the front drum bearing. I pulled out the seal, looked at ps.com's schematics, and ordered the drum seal and the 4 bearing slides. I figured I might as well replace the slides while the top and front of the dryer were off. Previous postings and the video were very helpful. I did take off the dryer door (remove 2 screws and loosen 2 screws to take it off) to make it easier to remove the dryer front. Do watch the wires to the door switch and the light: gently move the dryer front just far enough from the dryer to get behind it. Install felt seal and make sure it is completely in the guides with flat side against the dryer front. Install bearing slides exactly the same way as the old ones: they just clip into place. Have a brush or vacuum handy to clean the channel from the dryer lint trap. Mine was full of lint. You will have to reach in and raise the dryer drum slightly to put it back on top of the front bearing as you reinstall the dryer front. Very easy repair for anyone with a small amount of mechanical ability. I estimate I saved the cost of a $150 service call ($75 to show up and minimum 1-hour of labor at $75 in my area). Thanks parts.com!
