What would cause my dryer to squeal loudly when its turned on then will go away, after a while. Its a frigidaire affinity dryer
Answer Mike, a worn belt would slip and make noise at the start of a cycle, then once running the noise could cease. Also make sure the dryer and washer are not being overloaded, and that the machines are in a temperature controlled room, If the room gets too cold, the belts will get hard, and slip on the pulleys, until it warms up.
the barrel doesn'tturn regularly with a average load could the belt be stretched
Answer John, Yes the drive belt 134051003 could be stretched. It's not a very common issue, but it is possible. You also want to check the four(4) motor mount screws, and make sure they're tight, as well. Thanks
I replaced the belt but it seems to stay on the tub side of the pulley. Maybe just a little off the pulley in that direction. Is that normal?
Answer Hi Phil. No you will need to "Center the belt" part # 134051003 rides on the top pulley correctly. You do this by slowly adjusting it one rib back on the motor pulley. Then slowly turn the tub pulley both ways to help it realign itself correctly. I have seen them factory misaligned. Thank You.
