Default Squealing Noise
Model Number: F31C336CS0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I replaced the motor in my daughter's dryer last year with your helpful advice. Now she occassionally hears a squealing noise. Can I solve this with a few well placed drops of 3 in 1 oil, or should I replace the belt, or do something else? I have audio of the noise, but don't think I can attach it.

Hi.

You need to check the idler pulley and the rear drum bearings.
Oiling would be a temporary solution.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Blower Housing Components parts for Frigidaire F31C336CS0 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Hi Simon, the dryer again doesn't produce any heat and I've confirmed that the heating element has no conductivity, so that is the likely problem. I also checked the idler pulley and it seems to spin quietly, so I suspect due to the age of this dryer, the rear bearing should be replaced. However, I'm at a loss how to proceed because I cannot see how to remove the heating element cage to get at the bearing.

Four photos are attached. The 1st shows the heating element in its cage. I can see where this attached to the back panel (2nd photo showing attachment screws circled in red), but once this is detached from the back panel, I don't see how to get it off. The 3rd photo is a closeup of the drum bearing and the 4th is immediately behind the drum bearing where I see a sleeve that the bearing can slide into. Do I pull up on the bearing away from this sleeve to remove it? Then I could easily remove the heating element.

Thanks in advance for your helpful advice.

Hi.

You should not disconnect the ballhitch from the drum. After removing the belt lift the drum and pull out.
Now just do the same thing to remove the ballhitch and then remove the heater assembly.
Here is the bearing kit Part number: AP2142648

Part number: AP2142648


And the heater assembly Part number: AP4501537

Part number: AP4501537


Post t he results.

Simon.

Thanks, Simon - you can see that I had already disconnected the ballhitch from the drum, so if I understand correctly, I need to reattach the drum to the ballhitch, then pull up on the drum and pull the ballhitch out of the sleeve and then I can remove the heating element assembly. I'll order the parts directly.

one more question about the amount of grease to apply to the new sleeve for the ballhitch - just a thin coating, a small dab in the middle to get pushed around on the ballhitch or more?

Hi, I greased up the sleeve, installed the ballhitch/drum together, but it won't set in place. I think I should have installed the ballhitch by itself first to make sure it's correctly in place, then attach the drum. I tried to push down on the drum, but it doesn't seem to want to drop any further. You can see the drum isn't setting correctly in the photo, attaching the belt to the idler pulley doesn't fix it (2nd photo).

Hi.

Had done that many, many times. The ballhitch should be attached to the drum before it's reinstalled in to the bearing. Find the right spot.
But if you wish to do it other wise I won't call the cops.
