Default Dryer Squeaks Loudly
Model Number: DEF-W-3   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years

This 1992 model dryer squeaks loudly and incessantly. I've read some posts, about these noises, but cannot find anywhere to open this dryer up. Some questions to be answered, please:

What might be causing the noise?

How would I obtain a manual showing how to get to the faulty part? (I know nothing about dryer machines.)

Where would I obtain the necessary replacement parts?

Thank you, much.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for FRIGIDAIRE DEFW3 Frg(v1) / 27 " Electric Dryer | AppliancePartsPros.com

The following should help

http://www.applianceaid.com/dryers.html

The most common cause is the rear drum support bearing.
Could be just the grease has dried out. If it has been going on for a long time the parts may be worn and need replacing. If the parts are OK, clean out the old grease and re-lube it using a high temp grease.

When you remove the support's rear bracket watch out for the small ball bearing. Once release it like to play hide and seek and you will waste an hour looking for it.

Also could be the idler wheel, the motor's bearings or the front drum supports.

Might as well check all moving parts while you have it open.
Give the interior a good cleaning including the blower wheel.
Also a good time to clean/check your vent system.
