there are drum rollers that support the drum and turn during rotation,FIRST UNPLUG the unit from POWER,then,remove the 2 bottom screws at the front cover and remove lower cover below the door, then remove 4 screws on front door cover 2 on each side and remove upper front and door,then remove 2 screws just under the top cover in front then release and remove drum belt from idler pulley by reaching under drum on right side by motor,then remove drum and 2 pulleys will be on rear of inside machine the other 2 will be on door panel,sometimes you can remove "c" CLIPS AND CLEAN HAIR AND LINT OUT AND lube with dry lubricant,but they are relatively inexpensive so replace all 4 rollers,check axles they turn on too and belt condition too amnd throughly clean out lint from innards too

THUMPING NOISE AS DRYER TURNS. I believe one of the rollers is loose, broke or??? Best way to access them. I can't get the bottom side cover screws loose. Can they be accessed from the top?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the lint filter, and the two screws that hold the lint filter housing in place to the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

It may not be your motor that is whining, it may be the drum rollers in need of lubrication or maybe the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys.

Maytag dryer , drum not turning , belt broke


remove the two brackets on the back holding the top cver to the rear back cover. One screw is on each bracket. Next pry the top covers front section. It has hold down springs keeping it on. They snap right off. Now remover the front outer panel to gain access to the drum. You will need a new tensioner pulley and a belt to fix your dryer. The inner roller bearing is dried up and a replacement is needed with a new belt as well
