Hotpoint Dryer still squeeking

2 posts in this topic

My old-style Hotpoint dryer (model # DLB2450BDLAD) recently started making a horrible squeeking sound.  With help from your site, I went ahead and replaced the rear drum post & bearing, front drum glides, and the belt.

So... the big squeek is gone, but there still remains a subtle high-pitched squeal.  It isn't super loud or overly annoying, but I would love to get it perfect!  Could this be the idler pully wheel?  This seems to be one of the few moving parts that I didn't replace.  Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

The idler pulley is about the only thing left that could be making a squealing noise. (Slight possiblity of motor bearing).
