Maytag dryer - common noise problems: See "how to take apart" first. The most common noise maker is the fan blower, it breaks on the motor shaft and makes a loud "rumbling" noise. Other common trouble makers are the rear rollers and idler pulley, they often can make a screeching noise.
A common noise with Maytag dryers is a rumbling noise that often still rumbles for a few seconds even after the dryer shuts off. This usually a broken fan blower, the inside part of the fan blower has rounded out and the fan blower is free wheeling on the motor shaft = new fan blower time. These pliers help make the repair a little easier...Snap Ring pliers.. From Tools Accessories section... How to take the dryer apart. Part is # 303836 for the mytang models.

It depends on what is making the squeaking noise. Could be drum bearing, drum slides, tensioner pulley, pr even the leveling legs sometimes squeak.

Could be a blockage in the exhaust. If the clothes are coming out hot but still damp after the first cycle then there is a blockage in the exhaust in the dryer. This blockage could be where the lint filter is or in the exhaust vent to the outside of the unit. The best thing to do is pull the unit from the wall and access the back panel. Remove the back panel and with a wet/dry vac clear out the inside of the unit. Then check for a lint blockage in the hose that is connected to the back of the dryer. That should have corrected your problem If an element goes out there is no heat at all and I doubt the thermostat would go out like that Maytags are rare to have a thermostat just go out
Hope this helped
