squeaky GE dryer
« on: December 24, 2009, 09:53:42 AM »
HELP!!! my dryer is making a horrible squeaking noise. It's only three years old! How do I go about fixing whatever is making this noise?? I really don't want to call a repairman for something I might be able to fix myself for less.  :-\

To me it looks like it probably has some screws on the rear top that need to come out and then the top slides to the rear and comes off. Then the controls come off and the front can be removed. Then you basically have the same dang thang as them repair pix I showed earlier.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we did fix the dryer ourselves. Where the drum sits on the inside of the door piece there are little tabs. They were totally wore off and the drumm was wearing off the hard plastic. Replaced the part and the tabs and it runs great!!! Also ordered some extra tabs in case they start to wear down again.
