Maytag Dryer squeeling

We have a Maytag Intellidry Dryer MD-4. When running it makes a squeeling noise that can get really loud. Then, at times it stops making the noise but then starts up again. What is the probable cause?

Maytag dryer makes loud squeeling noise when it gets hot. Drys clothes but makes such a loud squeeling noise. Have to let it cool down to continue to dry.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

A loud squeal is usually caused by either an idler pulley bearing. a drum roller bearing or a loose belt.

Since you did not include a model number I have to respond with generic across the board information. Idler pulleys, drum rollers and belts for Maytags can be found on this link:
(Just past half way down the page) http://www.apwapplianceparts.com/Laundry+Appliance+Parts/Dryer+Appliance+Parts+/Dryer+Drive+Belts+Idler+Pulleys+and+Support+Rollers/default.aspx

You can enter your model number on this page and find your parts: (Choose model number)
http://www.appliancepartspros.com

If you do repair it yourself.... do yourself a HUGE favor and either take a picture of the belt routing or draw a belt routing diagram BEFORE dis-assembly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a Maytag dryer that was in storage for 2 years. It works fine but it makes a big noise when it starts and ends.


Describe the noise. Does it sound like someone hitting a drum or a loud squeel or a big snap? Is it a short noise or does it make the noise and fades to nothing?

Also, what's the model number.

Thanks!

Very Loud Dryer


squeeling hi pitch is usually the drum support roller above the heater. if you take the machine apart and turn all moving parts by hand you should be able to find the problem...if its a rumbling noise then it may be the blower wheel. UNPLUG FIRST..good luck :)

Dryer started out squeeling and now is making loud sounds?


This is very likely due to bad drum support rollers which is really not a difficult repair on these dryers.

Dryer only ''humms'' when you press start


It sounds like you have a broken belt.

Dryer is making a loud squeeling noise when running


This is probably the drive belt slipping on the drum or motor. There is usually no adjustment on these and it is a case of replacing the belt. If you take the top off the machine, you may be able to look inside while it is running (KEEP CLEAR OF THE ELECTRICS AND DO NOT DELVE INSIDE WHILE THE MACHINE IS IN THIS STATE!) and see the belt slipping. If it is, it's probably time for a new belt
