    I have a Maytag electric dryer model # LDE7334ACE that squeaks while running through the dry cycles. It began as some squeaking at the beginning of the cycle and then it would stop. Has recently progressed to squeaking off and on throughout the cycle. Can you please provide suggestions as to what part(s) may be causing this? Thank you.

A lot of appliances have a spring latch under the front of the top. You need a putty knife to push this in to release the top, one on each front corner. The top will hinge up. Then a screw will be holding the front on, one on each corner of the top area. Some fronts have screws down on the lower front, you really have to look for them. Make sure the power is off!

My dryer has a high pitched squeak. What could it be? It is not loose coins or other foreign objects. It appears the little white pulley is not turning when the dryer is on. What can I do to fix this?

Dryer Squeaks when operating. Dries fine; but just squeaks, it comes and goes. Bearings/etc. seem to be ok.


check the tension pulley at the belt. If it has an inspection plate
in the back you can oil the pulley, otherwise you have to dis-assemble to get to the pulley

My dryer squeaks model #mde3600ayw


Many reasons for this to happen. First the seal surrounding the drum to the front panel maybe dirty causing this squeak
In the other hand most squeaks are caused by the dried up bearing inside the roller for the belt tensioner. If so replace the belt and tensioner pulley for the belt gets stretched by a worn pulley and will break eventually too

My maytag electric dryer squeaks when it stars up and sometimes during operation.


most common causes of a noisy dryer are bad drum support rollers, a bad idler pulley or a bad blower wheel

Maytag dryer squeaks during cycle


How do you replace the glides/slides? I have a Maytag dryer that's squeaking, took off front and it's clear it's the glides. Found where to buy them just need directions for replacing. Anyone know how?

To change the glides you have someone lift the drum--after taking off the front panel--and pull out the glides. We bought the glides locally and just ordered on line the felt pads that go under the glides, as one was missing. So I haven't actually completed the project but should easily be able to once the felt pads arrive.

if replacing the rollers didn't fix the squeak, you need to replace the teflon drum slides and drum gasket material. mine sqalled so much it would run you out of the room. now it's quiet.
