We've got a noisy Maytag gas dryer and it has been suggested it needs brake shoes on the front and rollers on the back of the drum. Is anyone near enough to Oberon to assist us please?


To access the front you remove 2 screws at the base of the front and remove the front panel, newer models you pop the top first. Not all maytags are exactly the same. The front of the drum rides on plastic glides and the rear of the dryer rides on rollers. I made a few maytag dryer home videos HERE

My ge gas dryer squeeks its *** off


Helo there and welcome to fixya
This is a fairly common problem with these dryers
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Glow igniter shuts down when dryer calls for gas


The very noisy part is a little bit odd...

Usually the igniter glows, the flame sensor detects the glow and sends power to the valve coils, which open the gas valve. There are some differences in that setup depending on the brand, but that is basically it.

It could be that the igniter isn't glowing hot enough (doubtful) or that the flame sensor (the rectangle thing on the side of the burner tube) isn't working (also unlikely, but still possible) or that the gas coils aren't working. Gas coils are the most common problem to go wrong on gas dryers, but when they go, they usually work at first, and then start to fail.

Do you have a volt/ohm meter?

Maytag gas Dryer is Noisy


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.
