Dryer Squeaks! NEW
by: Anonymous

The dryer squeaks as it turns. It happen on and off. I purchased an extended warranty and when the repair person opened the unit, he said that there wasn't any damage to the bearings, it was just lint that collects there and causes the squeaking. So he cleaned it out, and left. It still squeaked shortly after. I clean the filter EVERY time after usage. It is a high pitched annoying sound. Sometimes if I kind of shake the dryer it stops, or basically if I take everything out but one or 2 pieces it stops. Another very annoying feature is if I dry a set of sheets, invariably the dryer creates one huge ball out of the fitted sheet with everything else tucked inside, so it can go around forever, but all the items inside will remain damp. I do not recommend this dryer.
