When I start my dryer it makes a high pitched squeaking sound but runs then after a few minutes it goes away and is fine for the rest of the loads that are done. It only happens on the first load. Before this started it would make some clicking sound and only run a short time then turn off. I would take some clothes out and then it would run fine. Could this be a drive belt issue?
ANSWER Paul, Yes, it is most likely a belt issue. It could also be due the environment, is the room heated and air conditioned ? and of course overloading the dryer doesn't help(dryer should be loaded 1/3 to 1/2 way full, maximum).
