Default Whirlpool Duet Dryer Squeaks/Squeals At Start Up
Model Number: WED9550WR1   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Greetings! My dryer has started to squeak/squeal for anywhere from a few seconds to around a minute or so at startup. Once it is going for a bit, it stops. In doing some research, I know it can be several things, but wanted to know if there are any troubleshooting tips to narrow down what it may be before I order all of the parts that it could be? I'd rather not have to take it apart more than once if I don't have to as well. And is it possible to get a link or a copy of the service manual so I can follow along to take it apart?

I'm leaning towards the belt, pulley assembly, and/or rollers.

Any additional assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Watch the video with this link on disassembly.
Whirlpool 661570V Belt - AppliancePartsPros.com

You will then be able to check the belt for wear and cracking.

You will be able to spin the belt tension pulley and check for wear noise.

You will be able to check the drum rollers to check for wear and noise.

Even if you replaced all four parts; the belt, idler pulley, and two drum rollers, your only looking at about 45 bucks....

Ok. So I have it all taken apart, but nothing is obviously wrong? The belt looks great. the rollers roll smooth and don't make noise. The only thing that maybe is an issue is the idler pulley was tough to turn. It doesn't squeak when I turn it, but it takes some force. Could that be it?



Was fairly easy to take apart. I'm going to clean it, and may just order all 4 parts.

Thanks!

The idler pulley should spin freely. I suspect it is your problem. I am not sure if you need the drum rollers however a new belt won't be a bad idea since it may have been stretched due to bad idler.
Like I said though all 4 only about 45 ain't bad then everything is good for another several years.....
Let us know how the repair turns out.
