The dryer is making squeaking noise. My wife and I debated the characteristics of a squeak and squeal and it is definitely a squeak.
I don't think it is a slipping belt. Sounds more like a metal on metal.The dryer was taken completely apart to thoroughly clean. The same problem after putting back together.
The squeak only happens during part of a load. Definitely more frequent and intense at the end of the drying cycle. The size of the load does not seem to matter.
are there places that can be lubricated without getting it on the clothes?
ANSWER Ken, In your style dryer, there are a couple of possibilities, The most likely being the rear drum bearing WE25M40 . the other is the idler pulley WE12X83, but that is more of a "squealing" type noise, that turns into a rumble.
