Squealing or Squeaking Sound - Dryer

Possible Solutions

Squealing Sounds

A squealing type sound could be caused by several different things:

  • Dryer is unlevel
  • Dryer needs cleaning
  • Potential service issues

Verify installation of dryer feet, and check that dryer is level. 

Lint build up inside the dryer can cause some squealing and squeaking of the dryer belt and pulleys. This may require a service call to remove the back panel and to thoroughly clean the inside of the dryer. 

As the dryer ages, the belt and pulleys can wear, causing some squealing type sounds. These components may require replacement to eliminate those sounds. Verify with an Authorized Service provider what parts should be replaced.
