My dryer makes a squeaking noise as it dries. It started doing this for a few minutes, but it now does it all the time. What's up?

Sounds like a roller bearing is going bad. Oling it would only be ashort term fix. The bearing needs t be replaced

Stuck on Sensing

Fixed! I opened up the top of the dryer (which can be done by simply removing three screws on the back of the unit and then sliding the top back and up) and found that the dryer belt was snapped in half. There is a belt tensioner near the motor that has a switch in it and will not allow the dryer to start if there is no tension on the belt. I was able to change the belt by myself for only $10, but it was not the easiest thing to do so calling a service shop would be recommended.

Yes, Possibly a belt needs to be changed!
Do not put off the service call for delay may cause more severe problems if it is not a belt. ANY TIME YOU HEAR GRINDING SOUNDS LOOKOUT! A belt is usually only a squealing noise!

Hotpoint condenser dryer ctd00

change the drive belt. evidently the belt has stretched to the point the belt tensioning device can no longer do its job. when you change the belt make a diagram of which way the belt is reaved through the tensioning device. if you don't you'll be back here asking how to arrange the belt.
