Have a question... my dryer is about a year old, and just started making some noise. Sometimes it's fine - no noise at all. Then it will occasionally make a sporadic squeal. I took the plate on the back off and the belt looked fine and was not making any noise. It sounded like it was almost coming from the drum itself. Any ideas what that is, and what I can do to remedy it?

Thanks for the help...

** dryer is about a year old **

I'm afraid that doesn't help us to know which GE dryer design you're dealing with. What we need is the complete model number as written on the appliance's model and serial number identification tag.

You can find tips for locating that identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** It sounded like it was almost coming from the drum itself. **

Most GE dryers have some sort of rear drum bearing. They can wear creating noise and possibly damaging other parts. Other common causes of noises on most dryers are a worn idler (belt tension) pulley and front drum slides.

** dryer is about a year old **

If the dryer is *less than* a year old, you should call for service as it should be covered by warranty.
