This front load style dryer was making a screeching noise off an on as it ran. Like it was yelling for help and boy how you could not miss the crys of terror. :) . It actually hurt my ears. The unit was only 3 years old and I could not see any part that was bad. So I took the unit apart and cleaned the 4 drums rollers and tension pulley. I ran the dryer for 20 minutes and the noise was gone. To clean the rollers you need to remove each one and sand the roller shaft down. DO NOT SPRAY GREASE ON ROLLERS. GREASE WILL CATCH ON FIRE AND THEN YOUR DRYER. If you want to use a lubercant, use white grease, but a small amount on the roller shaft before you put the roller on. Here are some pics….
