Pop the top and get the front off. Get the ball of lint out the blower housing and replace the bad blower wheel.dryer help - e00d80d.jpg

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)

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

My LG dlg2532 takes forever to dry clothes. When the drying cycle ends, the clothes are still quite damp. It's a gas dryer and the dryer seems to be getting gas since it does eventually dry the clothes...


How long are the vents? do they go for miles in your house?(sarcasm) Does the dryer have good ventilation? Check the vents again and make sure it is clear.

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

Electric dryer element heats for short period of time and then shuts off, will come back on in a few min. and only is on foe 10 to 15 seconds and then back off. It takes 2 to 3 hours to dry a load


you need to clean out the dryer and vent line,try running it with the vent line off and see if it runs better,also you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,check the outside vent and make sure that isn't blocked,you need to do this once a year or you will start blowing thermal fuse and over heat the motor and your clothes will take hours to dry

Dryer making horrible squeeling noise


this is normally a problem with rollers that have gotten dry bearings , take the drum out check the rollers if they turn hard or act sticky you may clean them up and and oil with turbine oil , do not use wd-40 or 3in 1 as these will dry the bearing, check the idler pulley while you have this apart also oiling it if need be
