Whirlpool 27" Dryer Squeals Every Two Years

27 May 2013 - 11:39 AM

We have a four year old 27" Whirlpool washer/dryer pair (220V 50Hz for Israel but that doesn't matter here. After two years it began to squeal. I bought a roller, idler, belt kit and hanged it and cleaned out grit, sand, and lint. Two more years of silence and laundry bliss. Last week the squeaks started again. Since I actually bought three repair kits stateside two years ago I was prepared. This time first I just tried cleaning out the dirt. No go. It squealed just as much. I replaced it all and I'm back to quiet laundry.

Two years seems to me to be awfully frequent. Any ideas what can be done to extend the life and, if not, which of the psrts really needs such frequent replacement so I can buy it a la carte and save cost, space in my suitcase.
