Take the bottom of the back panel off. remove belt. Take the front of the dryer off and pull the drum up and out. Everything will be exposed. Very simple to do

Neptune dryer makes noise


Check the blower to make sure it is properly secured on the motor shaft. Also check all of the bearings: motor, tensioner pulley and drum support rollers or drum bearings. You may have to disengage the belt to check the motor and tensioner.

My Maytag dryer (model # MDE4806AYW) makes a grinding sound all of the sudden. Sounds like the cylinder drum is scraping on something. The dryer is only a couple of years old. What do you think needs to be...


Could be your front glides on your drum housing. They are just Teflon pads that the front of the drum rides on. If they wear down you will get a metal on metal rubbing. The part number is 40116501. The other possibility could be your rear rollers going bad but they usually will make almost a squeak usually. They are what support the rear end of the drum.
Hope this helps _MJ_

My maytag dryer won't start. When I push the start button it makes a "errrrrrr" sound but won't start. Any ideas?


Stuck drum or failing motor. Try turning the drum by hand. It should move fairly effortless in one of the directions. If it does - the problem is in the motor. If it does not rotate - check if something is stuck between the drum and rear or front panel. Good luck Motor part number is 31001589. Replacing it is fairly hard for untrained.

My clothes have brown marks on them that look like burn marks. has this been a problem with maytag neptune dryers? if so, what is going on?


If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

I keep replacing the dryer belt, due to it keeps getting stretched out, how can i prevent it stretching?


There are only two things that I can think of, both related. 1. The drum is turning with difficulty. 2. The drum is dropped down in the cabinet letting the belt be loose. Open the dryer door and feel around the opening just inside the opening. Feel for the felt seal. Is the gap even top and bottom? My guess it's not. If not, he top part which is the support for the front of the drum is worn out, letting the drum tip down and loosen the belt. Check the rear bearing. With the belt loose, pull up on the back end of the drum. Does it move up and down in the bearing. If it does the rear bearing needs replaced. Both are simple to do.

Me GE elec. dryer is screeching, how do I solve this problem


First, stop using the dryer. It is telling you "I'm broken".

Several things can cause the noise you are describing:

1. Belt is slipping. Lost proper amount of tension on the tension pulley as spring has become weak.

2. Rear drum bearing has rubbed completely through and the drum is now riding on the metal support, This can cut into the drum support and trash it.

3. Tension pulley has got bearings that have gone dry (bad). Fix is to replace pulley.

4. Chance that the bearings in the motor itself have gone dry (Bad). Some you can oil and some are sealed. In either case, if they are making this noise, they are probably no good and motor needs replacing.

Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.

Squeaky elec. dryer


This could be attributal to a rear drum roller lacking proper lubrication, or having been overheated. Also, a dry idler pulley bearing could cause this chirping. Don't allow this problem to continue without investigating the cause.
