Make sure it is unpluged ,,,,, take the two screws out on bottom of front panel, pull out and drop down, remove 2 screws holding top down and raise, 4 5 1/16 screws holds front cover in place, take those out, left up and remove ,,,, you can see all from there ,,,,,, drum also has to come out to replace parts.

When i turn on the dry it is making a loud Squeaky sound. the dry is still heating, just making loud squeaky sound


Hi an welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This squeaky sound your hearing is usually the idler pulley, idler pulley shaft, but also can be the motor or the drum roller bearings. Usually if the drum roller bearings are bad the dryer will thump as it rotates.
The idler pulley and lever is and assembly that is item 8 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194&diagram_id=28598568#d28598568

Since it is squealing at this time when you have the repairs done that you replace the belt that is item 21 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194&diagram_id=28598572#d28598572


The motor is item 7 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194

I recommend that if you do the repairs that you replace the idler pulley, the drum rollers, and the belt.
Drum rollers are item 17 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194&diagram_id=28598572#d28598572 (make sure to check the drum roller shafts that are item 19 of the same link.)

While repairs are being completed also inspect the drum front and rear seals. Thare are items 14 and 26 (Same part number) of the above link.

By doing all of the above you should be able to get many more years of service out of your dryer.

If you need to purchase a service manual for self repair it can be downloaded here for $9.95:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My Maytag MDE308DAYW needs a new belt. Belt was


If you go from the top. The belt goes down the drum, between the drum and idler pulloy,under the idler then pull it over to the top of the motor pully and loop over it. When it comes out from under the motor pully it goes under the drum and over to the other side of the drum, and back up to the top of the drum. I hope this makes since.
Please rate solution if helpful
