I AM IN THE PROCESS OF REPLACING THE DRUM ALSO BECAUSE OF IT BEING BROKEN RIGHT WHERE THE GROOVE IS IN THE BACK OF THE DRUM THAT RIDES ON THE ROLLERS.
HERE IS THE WAY I AM APPROACHING IT: THE OLD DRUM IS OUT - NOW I AM INSPECTING THE DRUM SEALS AND ROLLERS - SINCE THE OLD DRUM IS ALREADY OUT YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF HEADACHES BY REPLACING THE DRUM ROLLERS, FRONT AND REAR DRUM SEALS, AND THE BELT ALONG WITH THE NEW DRUM. I WOULD ALSO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPEN SPACE TO GIVE THE DRYER A GOOD CLEANING AND VACCUUM PRIOR TO THE NEW DRUM INSTALLATION. BE SURE NOT TO FOLD THE REAR SEAL OF THE DRUM DURING RE-INSTALLATION. TAKE YOUR TIME AND DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING AS YOU GO MAKING SURE THE DRUM RIDES NICE AND SMOOTH ON THE ROLLERS AND THE SEALS ARE FLAT ALL THE WAY AROUND. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU TO NOT HAVE ANY FURTHER PROBLEMS FOLLOWING YOUR NEW DRUM INSTALLATION.

My maytag neptune model mde5500ayw make a sound like metal grinding, comes and goes, it looks like the felt liner in the back is loose in one area. Is this the cause of the bloody awful noise?


If the noise is intermittent then most likely the loose felt is not the best problem. More likely is the rollers that support the drum. You can take them off clean and oil with a good bearing oil and that might work or you can replace them if they are too worn

Felt belt found inside of drum


Hi - these are used to minimize the metal to metal contact of the drum & housing.

One will need to remove the top & front panels to gain access to remove the drum, afix felt to end in question and assemble the machine again.

The gliders are a piece of hard plastic that set on the frame, the peice that holds the drum, their is 4 of them and they are on top of the frame, the felt liner is what supports the bottom of the drum on the fram.

Maytag Neptune Dryer making vibrating noise while working


a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease

Drum doesn't turn in maytag neptune MDE9700AYW


Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

We have the same machine. The drum also broke so we had it professionally installed. It wasn't done well enough and after the 90 day repair warranty, other problems developed. We still don't have a dryer and the next repair is $500 as other parts were damaged and we didn't catch it within the 90 days.
Bottom line: do have it professionally installed but be sure to ask about their work guarantee. As soon as you have any problem at all, call them back.
