Hi People,
\
Have an older dryer, not sure what brand(its at another location). Its a front load type. Noticed the squeak is rythmic- seeems to squeak in a pattern, while the big basket turns round. Imagine say, as basket turns in a clock pattern, squeak may happen say, from 12 oclock to 3 oclock, then interupt until basket reached 12 oclock again.

Im going there this morning later, and try to inspect.

Thanks, IDT. Since this morning, Ive been to the apartment, and got the model # Its a GE DDE 7108P LLAD. While I was there, I placed a towel inside it to test it and the dryer squeaked like 1-2-3 and 4, 1-2-3 and 4.....

Not sure if that helps. But, Im gonna take it apart, maybe in the next day or 2, but I will take it apart, and maybe have to but a kit including the puley/rollers/and belt, if necessary.

Thanks, People.

GE dryers don't use drum rollers they use a drum bearing. You;ll want to get a new bearing and grease. Maybe an idler pulley while you have it torn apart

Sorry for delay, but the # is correct. Of course, omit the GE portion of it....thats the brand of course. So now what do I do, ifn we cant even find the model #?

Thanks!
