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!

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.

Found a YouTube video with step by step instructions for disassembling a Whirlpool Duet dryer. Though not the same model as mine it was close enough. The hardest part of this repair was figuring out how to pry apart the elctrical connectors but it's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. You also might want a little help taking off the door. It's not mandatory ( I'm a big guy and I managed it by myself) but having an extra pair of hands makes things easier. If you can take out screws and remember the order you took them out you should not have any problems. The actual pully assembly was held in my one bolt, easily replaced once you get access to it. If you don't want to change out the belt, removing the door is not necessary as you can get to the pully from the back side of the machine. But since you have it halfway disassembled already, you might as well go for it and not have to make a return visit. Total time including vacumning out all the lint from inside the dryer was three hours. Took my time and saved myself a few hundred dollars for sure.

Followed standard instructions regarding removal of top first & then the front panels. Realized after following this process that I did not have to remove top, but only one of front panels to obtain access to moisture sensor. If I have to do this again, the replacement of sensor will be much easier.

Removed the top panel of the dryer via a couple of screws from the rear. Remove the rear panel swing it open light a door to the right, minding the electrical connections. Removed the belt from the pulley, removed the Tri-ring from the shaft and slid the pulley off of the shaft. The shaft was slightly rusted so I used a steel brush and brake cleaner to clean it up, placed the new gasket, pulley, and tri-ring on, replaced the belt, and put the panels back into place. As the dryer is about 7 years old, also removed the front lower panel and cleaned out unit which had quite a bit of accumulated dust and glitter especially in the vent lines. (3 girls live here). Pretty easy, most screws remove with just the one tool.
