Default Squealing Clothes Dryer

My clothes dryer started squealing which is just the drum rear bearing, nothing a buddy bearing and zirc fitting wouldn't fix right? Or anybody have a better idea?

That " bearing" ain't much....if it's like mine!

You might have front drum glides too. Do the belt while you're at it.

Get your shop vac and air compressor too. You'll see why!

My girlfriend's dryer start to squeak (haha) ended up being the felt pads that the drum rests on, which can be replaced.

What they said.
Get your model number and watch someone take one apart on utube.
You can order parts and fix it yourself in a couple of hours.

my dryer would squeal every time I put the kids in it for timeout......... maybe I shouldn't have run while they were in it. but as a parent it's a judgement call.
