3 Reasons your Dryer is noisy
Reason #1: Your dryer is off balance.
A squeaky dryer that's off balance doesn't necessarily mean you need a brand new dryer. Simply try to lean your weight on one side of the dryer to see if there is any instability.
If you found that your old dryer is off balance then fix this problem by shoving cardboard underneath the short leg. Repeat this process until the dryer is balanced. Give it a week to see if the dryer begins to squeak less.
Reason #2: Your dryer is catching on something inside
Dryers take a lot of pounding. Often simple repairs are done by looking inside to make sure there isn't something caught. We've seen piles of matted down clothes caught in the top corners of dryers that over time simply wear down the rotation.
Be sure to check to see if your dryer has it's lint taken out of it. A jammed up filter can easily cause your dryer to make a ton of noise. Based on our Appliance Repair knowledge we'd suggest getting a long stick with a lint catcher on the end to dig down the filter slot.
Reason #3: You've been neglecting on the dryer maintenance
The last thing you probably feel like doing besides emptying the car litter is maintaining your appliances. Proper appliance maintenance guidelines can be found on our Home Appliance Repair FAQ.
