Squeaking dryer


Loose pulleys where the belts are can cause squeeks a lot of times. Sometimes, it's the belts themselves that causes it especially if it is on that age.,

You can try cleaning first the belts or replace it or you can also seek for loose pulleys from the motor or the center drum. They usually have a lock and if you tighten it, that usually cures the problem.

The repair kit I bought fixed the problem. The only belt-related pulley on this dryer, FYI, is the motor itself. The tensioner is more of a guide on a piece of metal, it doesn't have a rotating assembly on it at all.

Either way, the dryer if fixed and all is good.
