Question about Dryers

1 Answer

We have a Maytag dryer that is 7 years old. It runs on propane. Recently it started getting louder during the drying cycle and it keeps getting louder. It sounds almost like a buzzing (NOT like the buzzer when it is done drying). Is there something I can do to fix it? What is causing it? Is there some sort of maintenance that should be done other than cleaning the lint trap?

    Does the noise continue for a few seconds after the dryer shuts off? No regular maintenance required. Also, please list model number (usually located behind door, near door switch.)

Never saw a response to my clarification request, so I hope you have resolved you service question. Without further info, it's hard to give good advice, but you might look at the blower wheel to see if it is spinning loosly on the motor shaft. That will make noise, and usually continues for a few seconds after dryer shuts off.

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

Matag NeptuneDryer MD5500AWW - intermittent heat - not drying


this is joyce
It is as you guessed your sensor. it is usually located in door but some models are in back of machine on inside, go online download document papers go to maytag.com put in model# and then download your model # and it will show you where your sensor is located, it should be simple to replace. I had the same problem with my dryer.
I am glad you said you checked the dryer lines because if these get clogged up they will cause the dryer not to dry the clothes correctley. very smart....if you need me to help let me know.

thanks,

joyce

if replacing the rollers didn't fix the squeak, you need to replace the teflon drum slides and drum gasket material. mine sqalled so much it would run you out of the room. now it's quiet.
