Dryer making loud noise

My maytag dryer makes a loud humming noise after running two loads. We then have to shut it off and let it cool down completely before running it again.

    No it just makes an extremely loud noise. No smell associated and it would keep running but the noise is so loud we shut it off so it stops.

The humming noise is most likely your motor. does it overheat or shut down on you? do you smell anykind of burning? Joe

    if it is a humming noise and not a rattling noise or scrapping noise, then it is most likely your motor. there is a possibility it could be your drum rollers, but that would be more of a metal on metal noise, not a humming noise. Joe

Dryer stops


If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

People, the first words the poster said were that the dryer was "brand new". All of your suggestions assume the dryer had extensive use. This sounds like a factory defect issue!!!! My brand new Maytag Cabrio gas dryer is also making an obnoxious buzzing sound that seems to cycle on and off as the gas ignites. The buzzing sounds electronic not mechanical. What would buzz when the burner is active?

New Maytag dryer model mgdc400vw makes loud humming noise


Weird, try making sure it is level, and make sure your vent pipe aint too long. Tip the cabinet back while running if the noise goes away the damn metal vent pipe is too dang long.

Loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.


Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.

Dryer makes a loud noise then stops


If it stops running when hot it may be the motor. The belt or drum rollers would not stop it from running.
