    Clothes dryer squealing - Beaumark 63390 449
    The dryer is squealing like crazy - it sounds like rubbing or slipping, and there's a definite rhythm to it. Last week we opened the inspection hatch on the back and moved the little belt wheel down the pole, which seemed to increase tension on the belt and the squeak went away - for a few days. It's back now.

    According to Applguy in another question it might be the rear bearing (?) I was wondering if the repair is pretty much the same for any dryer, and I can't seem to find any info on this dryer anywhere - perhaps my google-fu has failed me. Au secours!

    I just finished tearing my dryer apart. The cause of the Sqeak is the center bearing from the drum to the back wall mounting . There is a teflon washer on the stud which fits into the bearing cavaity and it was damaged. Also the bearing stud and the socket it fits into
    Are a mess. They will get a cleaning and I am looking for a high heat lub which can be used. Also I might add that the back of the clothe drum and in the area of the heating coil was plastered with lint. This is a fire hazard. I have given the dryer and removed parts a good cleaning using a shop vac. This is the second dryer we have had that developed the sqeak and it has in both cases the center bearing
