Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I have a LDE8404ACE Maytag dryer that is about 12 years old- It has worked fine up until the last month. It makes a loud slipping kind of noise as if the drum is lagging behind, then it moves into a more smooth sound but a still louder sound than usual - as if I'm drying gym shoes in every load. It seems to be louder now than it was a couple of weeks ago. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
I have the same dryer with the same problem, I am about to take it apart to diagnose, but from what i have researched, it sounds like it is either one of two things, the idler pulley bearings are shot, or some other bearing in the drive train. My wife reported this problem to me last night and i will figure it out today, if i do, i will post it here...

This could very well be the guide rollers in back of the cabinet. They will do this if there is considerable wear. They probably need to be replaced.
