If the unit is new...get a service person in.  Do not do anything yourself.

2yr old maytag maxima dryer gets louder and louder after run 30min. prob. repeats after cool down and running again. Vent is clean new pipe, no error codes. Sounds like a surging vibration.


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.



The blower:



Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.



The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The drum rollers or castors:



It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

After putting on new belt there is a noise that is not the blower wheel


Most likely cause of noise is loosening or failure of the rear support wheels on which the drum turns. Check that both wheels are secure and tight.

Grinding noise while drum turns


had same kind of problem.. made a horrendeous squealing at times.

turned out the bearing in the back was worn through. It cost me about $40 and 2 hours time, to open it up, clean out the whole dryer and replace the bearing. The works was all easy. It was just time consuming to vacuum and clean the unit to new status.

The bearing on mine, consisted of a big steel ball pivot, attached to the back of the drum with 3 screws, and a plastic bushing it sat in, attached to the back of the dryer.

the trick was finding how to open the dryer up, without damaging it. after that. it was all easy street.
