dryer making noise

Question

LovenLifeGuy

Our dryer is sqeeking very loud when on. Anyone know what this is. Do I need to lube something? Do they have belts? It sound more like metal than a belt tho. It is a kenmore dryer that is stacked on top of the washer. I think it is about 8 years old.

Thanks

You got a drum roller out had the same thing happen to mine called a service tech and they put in the new roller. They also put in a new belt. Cost was about $75

Could also be the belt tensioner pulley.

Thanks, any of these things you guys think I can take on myself or should I just have someone come out?

Ours was done by a Service Plus tech (as I watched). He literally had it apart in minutes. I know watching someone else always makes it "look easy" but this time it really was. Every model is different though, so your job may not go the same. Without the service program we have I would have done it myself and had no problem. An parts you need you can get at Dey appliance in Coon Rapids.

Ours has a plastic bushing that the drum stud sits in. I lube it more often now, about twice a year, and have replaced it once in 11+ years. It is a Westinghouse and quite easy to get at once I downloaded directions from somewhere on the web. I fix medical equipment all day long so this was a breeze to me. If yours is a stack unit, that might make it tougher to get at but just need to find the right cover to take off. Do make sure and unplug it first. I stupidly neglected that part and in sliding a cover off shorted out the heating element. Mine has one side of 220 on it at all times. That little lesson cost me about $50.

new roller


I have had these make noise and bear. go out in the past.

There is a couple of them that support the drum. You will find which one is loose/junk, when you take it apart. I would replace all of them.

I would not rule out a tentioner either. Being a "stack" combo, it may be differnt than what I have repaired in the past.

Good luck!

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀
