SOURCE: Dryer turns very slowly and makes a squealing

The most common problem to date is bad blower wheel on certain amana older models on newer ones it is with blocked venting to outsde cause the wheel to overheat neatest the vent pipe and a resulting squeal and binding occurs. Remove the drum and check the rollers. Post the model number I might have a service manual

Top loader smells like wirers burning and squealing when spin cycle starts


Hey Tara, I understand that your Frigidaire Top Load Washer is squealing and presenting a burning smell. Is this occurring every time you are using the washer or with random loads? Typically, when you experience the squealing and burning smell it indicates that the washer is possibly overloaded. I would recommend that you stop the washer and reduce the load. If the problem persists, please reach out to a professional technician. Hope this helps! -JK

Dryer runs for a short period then starts to sqeal from the back and when you stop it and open the door you can smell a burning smell .


sounds like a bad belt and or pulley. If you take the top of the dryer off you can use a piece of candle wax to lube the belt and see if that makes the squealing stop to verify the belt/pulley as the source of the squeal. If so, you can but a new belt and pulley kit for about $30 and replace yours. Good Luck!

Hi. My Neptune dryer was not sounding as I remembered it. A higher pitch than usual while it was drying clothes. Then I noticed it was reluctant to start when pushing the "start" button, with...


burning smell is because the drum is not rolling and the motor is trying to turn, hopefully it did not damage the motor: more then likely it the drum rollers/glides, might want to check the idler arm here is a website that will help. depending on fast you need your dryer a good and cheap place to buy parts is on eBay, of course they can be purchased locally, Good Luck Tim:

Dryer will not start


IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH YOUR MOTOR HAS LOCKED UP AND FAILED. THE BURNING SMELL IS THE VARNISH FROM THE WINDINGS OF THE MOTOR. REPLACE THE MOTOR. THEY CAN BE HAD FOR AROUND EIGHTY DOLLARS
