SOURCE: squeaky loud noise maytag gas dryer

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.

Sounds like you need new drum rollers installed, when they get old they squeak,squeal, and make loud bumping noises.

SOURCE: My dryer is squeaky. it's a GE model number

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

SOURCE: My Maytag model LDE312 dryer heats up but doesn't

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
Dave

Belt came of dyer where does it go


Most maytag dryers you cannot work from the back side. The old style dryer is accesed by removing phillips screws at the base of the dryer. The newer models use a putty knife to realease the top. Some models called slopefronts you remove the door and then the front to get to the innards.

When i turn on the dry it is making a loud Squeaky sound. the dry is still heating, just making loud squeaky sound


Hi an welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This squeaky sound your hearing is usually the idler pulley, idler pulley shaft, but also can be the motor or the drum roller bearings. Usually if the drum roller bearings are bad the dryer will thump as it rotates.
The idler pulley and lever is and assembly that is item 8 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194&diagram_id=28598568#d28598568

Since it is squealing at this time when you have the repairs done that you replace the belt that is item 21 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194&diagram_id=28598572#d28598572


The motor is item 7 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194

I recommend that if you do the repairs that you replace the idler pulley, the drum rollers, and the belt.
Drum rollers are item 17 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5174194&diagram_id=28598572#d28598572 (make sure to check the drum roller shafts that are item 19 of the same link.)

While repairs are being completed also inspect the drum front and rear seals. Thare are items 14 and 26 (Same part number) of the above link.

By doing all of the above you should be able to get many more years of service out of your dryer.

If you need to purchase a service manual for self repair it can be downloaded here for $9.95:

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My Maytag model LDE312 dryer heats up but doesn't seem to get hot enough. It takes 2 hours or more to dry. Is this a thermostat or heating element problem?


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.
