I just need to know how to Cushing the metal housing around the burner. When the dryer runs, the squeaking is coming from the metal to metal contact.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

No all dryers are built the same .

Not even dryers built by the same manufacturer .

So I need to know whom the manufacturer is and the model number to know what dryer you have.

Open the dryer door the model /serial tag should be on the inner face frame of the dryer.

I got it. MDE8600AYW. 40470473zu
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok thank you!

Over 90% of this dryer is make out of metal .

There is nothing on the burner housing that would make a squeaking ,are you sure that the noise is not from the motor /belt idler pulley? right next to the heater housing.

I remove the burner, I can see there's a little grease between the burner and the metal housing. I think I just need to know what greased to add high temperature or something like that
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

you would use a high temp grease I recommend a product caller Syl-glide

You can get it at appliance parts dealers or even automotive parts dealers

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
okay -- this is directly on the burner -- so is Sly glide safe at the high temp of a burner? Online descrip says for rubber parts.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

I have used it for over 36 years on dryers and automotive brakes ,they too can get red hot.

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

But I show that you selected the amount of $28.00 .

If you have issue with the payment You will need to contact Just Answer Admin .
