My 14 yr. old Maytag dryer made the same type of noise. It was the fan. The plastic had broken loose around the shaft. As the shaft turned fast, the fan turned more slowly, hence the noise. Replaced the fan ---- perfect drying and no noise. $26.00 for new fan.

My Maytag Performa dryer is making a horrible sound...still working though. Wondering if it is a belt?? Can I fix myself?


go to Sears and purchase the belt with an idler pulley with it. It comes as a kit. The pulleys bearing has dried out bearing that went flat in spots which causes this horrible noise
the top and the front of your dryer needs to come off to access these parts

Makes a horrible noise. Seems to dry fine but before its done it sound like it going to explode.


The blower wheel may be stripped out or broken.
This will cause a loud rumble noise while operating.

The tub is making a scrubbing sound as it dries any idea what might cause this?


Could be your drum rollers needing lubrication.
They will make a thumping noise when the wheels are flat, a squealing/scrubbing noise when they need lubricant.
Also could be you drum rubbing on the felt seal at the mouth of the drum, the seal might be loose or worn

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

Horrible noise


The noise could be coming from the blower housing, as this unit does not have bearings, it does have 4 rollers however. If the unit is working on timed dry and not sensors there may be a problem with them. Check your venting though, if it is too short it may not have enough back pressure for the sensors to operate properly. This could also cause your thermosats to blow, the one is a manual reset, either way you are going to have to get a gas tech out there.
