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

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!

      Wow, nice gill😁

      Yes they are.

      Mr Pike, if you are going through blades that fast on the k-drill, you will certainly dull them out just as fast or faster on a Nils. The Ripper style blades that come on the K are about as good as it gets as far as durability goes.

      Looking for a recommendation for the best product to seal around an after market intake for a live well.  Aluminum boat that has been sitting on a trailer for a 4-5 years.  Old epoxy fell right off.   If you have a product you like the best, I'd love to hear it?  Lots to choose from....

      Are both units supplied by the starting battery?

      Hello fellow archers. I am wondering if anyone has any information on the Maple Grove Archery Hunts allowed by the City and the DNR? Specifically, I am wondering if there is ample public land to hunt or if it is limited to private land? If you have hunted in Maple Grove in the past, what has your experience been? I am an MBRB member and try to participate in those hunts but those also require being drawn, that said what have your successes been and or failures? Just any general thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks Simon

      I wonder just how many holes you cut before dulling your blades. Are you always fishing dirty ice ?  The Nils will be way easier on your drill but if you are on dirty ice it will dull just as fast or even faster. If you go the Nils route make sure to have an extra blade so you can send it in and still ice fish. Frank ( Surface Tension ) is quick with his turn around time but has his real busy moments as well and you would hate to miss a weekend.

      I think this is the problem Bob. The battery is fine and has a decent charge, but the humminbird unit either shuts down or becomes very, very dim lit due to dropping voltage during cranking the big engine.  My bow mount humminbird has never done this, but it has always been a problem on the console mounted unit even with several different batteries over the years.
