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

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!

      @BRULEDRIFTER We're on the east end of the lake, and we're all hoping that the Landing opens and thrives.  It is a great boat ride to the west end to have lunch.  Just an aside,  I talked to Ryan Horan three weeks ago and was told by him that they plan to have Bayview open for Fishing Opener.  The "Permanently Closed" sign is down on Hwy 77.  He also told me that they are putting in a completely new docking system that will accommodate more Bayview boats, and have reserved docks for the new campground.  We'll wait and see.  No opinions here, just stating what I was told by RH.

      I am on Daisy Bay. 1 mile past the Vermilion Club.

      A buddy of mine lives on the creek in the SE corner.  So, we'll do a combo of shore and boat.  I'm mainly bringing my boat for him to see how follow contour and SI works on the new birds.

      The temperature outlook looks promising, with nighttime lows staying above freezing. What I don't see is a lot of rain or wind to really break things up. I still think that we are going to be down to the wire on opener. Hopefully we don't get the same crazy warm up as last year that affected the spawn.

      I just had some concrete work done here in the 612 area code. I had to legally bribe the local jurisdiction via a $25 "temporary permit" to get the concrete truck to my house. Even down here, the lasting cold caused local communities to push out the weight restrictions on the roads. I'm sure that it will take longer in Cook.   I'm not sure what business owners will actually do, but I would think some enterprising folks in Cook will try to fill in the gaps. Sure it won't be like shopping at Super One, but there should be places selling staples. Sue and Ron always had staples available at Moosebirds. Maybe the new owners will temporarily expand their grocery line so that people can stay on/around the lake without driving half an hour.

      Ice out declared on Minnetonka on 4/18. Just saw my first facebook post of crappies being caught there. V has been about 2 weeks behind Tonka the last few years, putting it at ice out around May 2.

      Most lakes around Rush City including Rush and Goose went ice free yesterday.

      I think it took a true idiot /snob/pr!ck to ruin a place like the Landing.  I see that place as a total money maker and only wish I had the financial backing to have made a move to purchase it. Especially with Bayview out of the picture ,that place could be/should be the hottest place on the lake.  Absolutely no reason that place can't be packed from open to close on a daily basis.    The vibe I'm getting from the new ownership is they are going to bring it back to more of a sports bar/destination bar on the lake.  I think they have heard the community and will be responding in kind.  I look forward to  boating over and enjoying some brews and food on that patio again this summer.
