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!

      As of last weekend ice was 13 inches in most places. Sure to be thicker now with the cold temps. Just be careful, even during the coldest winters, there can be some thin spots out there.

      This crunchy snow is tearing Finns feet up. I am thinking of getting him some booties so he run around without making the house look like a murder happened

      Was sledding both on and off the staked trail yesterday.  Was COLD!!!  Happy to report that where we were (W side) most of the slush is frozen and not a problem. Traveled over a few pockets of watery slush, but they were small and easily managed.  Everything else is firm and crusted over. It’s minus 34 as I write this, so expect that any last remaining pockets of slush will be pretty firm  soon enough.

      14 inches of ice on the west end of Francis on Tuesday, but the access was heaved up so bad I don't think I could have pulled the wheel house out. Caught 1 sunny but only fished for about  half an hour. Mostly checking ice thickness. Checked the ice on Elysian, 12 inches near the south access and 10 inches further out.

      Also just 4 fun .     Tom , Fred Bear , Max Power , n Mrs W !   There you are back in the wild again , back where you belong ! Does Fred tell Max to go up on the ridge while he goes down into the swamp to get that pesky squirrel 🐿 , or something like that?   Glad they are real bro buds and enjoy there digs were they hang , and maybe some digs in the sand come time the spring decides to say “hello all”. Oh if we the people only had it so rough as those doggies you got there .🐶   As for Bobby Orr and needing longer legs 🏒 , your pic shows that your all legs , maybe just need to practice more , or shave , nothin personal whatsoever  , just sayin that old number 4 didn’t have a beard .   And last but not least ,  hope that those K-9’s didn’t get into those baked beans to heavily as burping may be the least of your issues !! Keep on rocken and rockin !    🎸  🎵  🎤  🎧  🎚️         A

      36 degrees BELOW zero this morning, the ice is firming up. LOL
    • PRO-V
      -23 degrees out in GR right now. Saying -25 tonight. This might harden things up a bit.🤔

      I bought a Striker snowmobile jacket and bibs at the Red Rock store up the Fernberg about 8 years ago. Really like them!
