My miele t7644c squeals half way through the drying process.

Customer Question

Hi,
My miele t7644c squeals half way through the drying process.
Do I need to replace a belt?
Could anything else be wrong?
Could I fix it myself? I can't afford an expensive service!
Thanks in advance for your advice :)

Hi, I am Tech Michael a specialist expert in this field and I will be assisting you today. I am a Master Technician that's dedicated to giving you the best Answer possible.If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:1. We may need some back and forth to exchange information (if needed) and there is no extra cost for replying.2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.The better you describe the problem, the quicker I can help ;-)3. Remember to leave a Positive Rating ,it doesn't cost anything additional to rate kindly;-)I am only credited for my time and expertise if you rate kindly.I guess the dryer is at least a few years old lol.As for the squeal, its not the belt causing the squeal, although once you are fixing the squeal, you may as well replace the belt too, its not expensive.The squeal on this machine is coming from the idler pulley that runs and keeps tension on the belt, the drum and the motor pulley.If you are a little handy, and have just a few basic hand tools you can do this repair easily and cheaply,I will help you each step of the way no extra cost.The best place to get that belt and the idler pulley is espares.Please visit : http://www.espares.co.uk/Or call them because they don't lais all parts online: Please call espares: 0844 9777 888.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated. Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank you and have a great day!Tech MichaelThank youTech Michael

Hi Lucy, In this case, you should replace all rollers, the belt, and the Idler tensioner for the belt near the motor.Thanks Lucy.Tech Michael
