SOURCE: Flashing "touchup" and dryer won't start

What I did was unplug it for 1 min., plug it back in. Push the "off" button once, then push the off button again and hold it for 10 seconds. This is supposed to reset the computer. It worked for me.

SOURCE: My Maytag dryer makes an aweful noise.

Typical parts that wear out and get noisy on that model are the two drum rollers (part # 12001541), the front drum glides #306508, the idler pulley Y303705 and the blower wheel 303836. None of these parts are very expensive, but to do all of them would definitely add up to the point that you might want to think about whether or not you want to keep the machine in operation especially after 10 years of good service.

You need to have you belt replaced. Over time the belt will strech.
this causes the dryer to still spin but the belt will sometimes loose the grasp of the drum and cause the belt to spin only.

This happens because over time with heavy loads of towles and jeans pull down on the drum as it is being loaded. Than when in cycle the jeans will drop from the top to the bottom pulling aginst it even more..

Try Repairclinic.com for help and parts. You are going to need heat resistant grease, and probably snap ring pliers.

SOURCE: Dryer makes a loud squealing when first started

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 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 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. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

How to fix Maytag dryer MED9600SQ0


Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum 9 this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

Maytag gas dryer squealing


Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.

Maytag electic dryer noise


First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.
