The Whirlpool dryer is not closing properly and squeaking. How to fix?

After working for a long time without any complaints, suspicious extraneous noises may appear in your Whirlpool dryer. You can associate this with anything. But absolutely such a defect is not related to normal functioning. In any case, the problem requires careful diagnosis and pinpoint identification of the sound source. Improper repairs or ignoring safety rules can cause more serious damage to your machine and yourself. If a squeak is coming from near the floor of a dryer, there are two common causes. It could be an idler pulley or an issue with the motor. The idler pulley is a tiny, round metal disc that’s part of the belt system in a dryer. If it's squeaking, it probably needs to be lubricated. The motor itself is also the source of squeaky noises. Idler pulleys maintain belt tension and hold the belt tight as it enters the dryer drum. If your dryer is making a squeak or grinding noise, it may be due to a worn out or broken idler pulley. This pulley can also develop tight spots which will cause squeaks and potentially worse wear on the other parts of your dryer.

To avoid electric shock, be sure to follow these guidelines:


  • The body and parts of the device, subject to a faulty product, may be energized!
  • Life-threatening voltages can pass through human organs with a fleeting touch of live parts!
  • Before starting any repair of the device, disconnect the plug from the socket!
  • When testing the device with the power supply on, use an RCD!
  • To ensure personal safety and the safety of the functionality of the dryer, it is extremely important to perform a safety test after each intervention. Try to work with protective gloves only.
