    Default Dryer Squeaks

    I have a GE electic dryer model# DDE7900SBLWW & it has started to make a annoying squeaking sound while drying. The drum still spins & it is still drying clothes.

    Anyone have some ideas on what may be causing this?

    Thanks in advance...

    The common noise issues i usually see on the GE's are the rear drum shaft bushing and the front drum glide pad assembly worn out.

    Jeff1 has a good section on the GE's here:

    Jake:

    You are correct, that seems to be where the noise is coming from. I did spray some WD40 on that area & it went away for a few loads, but has returned. I figured it would, but at least I found the problem.

    Thanks for your reply!!
