Loud, low (bass) noise, not coming from the vent or the heating element


Most probably caused by one of the belts being frayed and about to break. You might want to replace the small drive belt (00096426) first as it does the most work of transferring the motor power to the shaft causing the drum to rotate. A worn belt can cause a low frequency hum and potentially slow down drum rotation as it slips on the hubs. Replacing the large drum belt requires a lot more work than the drive belt because you must remove both the front and side panels of the dryer; whereas, the drive belt is accessed by removing the right side panel.

My maytag dryer has a loud squeal. I replaced the belt, but the squeal persists


Check to see if the belt has landed in the groove instead of on the outside of the drum. One might assume that the groove is there for the belt, but inspection of the drum will show previous belt location about an inch beside it. To fix, rotate the drum counter clockwise while pulling the belt away from the groove on the bottom of the drum. Once it has rotated a complete revolution, it should be in alignment and the noise should disappear.

After replacing my belt and drum rollers my roper dryer has a clicking noise as it rotates


Could be a lot of things causing it, blower wheel, motor, idler pulley, rollers. Dryers have several moving parts that could cause a clicking sound. The blower fan could be coming into contact with something. There is a motor, tensioner and a belt that turn the main drum, the tensioner for the belt could be loose thus causing the clicking noise as well.

Rattles when drying


I need more details but typically a dryer will make a rhythmic rattling noise when loose change and other small metallic objects as well as buttons become trapped in the tumbler impellers (those wing shaped things in dryers).
Loosen and remove the top of your dryer.
Rotate your drum, taking care not to rotate it the wrong way. The right direction of rotation will produce friction to the belt, the wrong direction will cause slack on the belt on one side or the other of the drum.
Rotate the drum until the back side of the impeller is directly on top with the outer screws facing you at the top of the dryer. Remove the screws and pull out the impeller and you will find your noise makers. Do this with the remaining impellers and reinstall.

Dryer turn on but would not spin


When the dryer will not spin the most common cause is a broken dryer belt.

If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
