might be the brushes are worn? speak to a man about the squeak cos I'm too girly and useless

Is there a mouse in it?

I was thinking mouse too....

Not sure there's a lot you can do without a Mr Fixit as it's all inaccessible. I was going to suggest a bit of oil on whatever the drum spins on.

Actually, this is probably pretty good at sorting out the mouse-in-the-tumbledrier problem.

Does it squeak if you try to spin the drum whilst it's off?

SoupDragon Wed 27-Jul-05 17:21:00

Whilst the drier is off not the drum, that is!

Mine squeaked for a while before the belt gave out.

Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear.

It squeaks whilst it is working...i will check in a bit to see if it squeaks when there nowt in it...

Oh, I've just noticed mine is squeaking now you've mentioned it. Mine is on a worktop in the laundry room so I presume that's flat.
