SOURCE: Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE making horribly loud noise while drying

Solution for the Maytag model is most likely to replace the blower wheel. Remove the two screws on the front panel (just a couple inches off the floor) and swing the front panel up to allow you to unhook the top side of the panel from the clips at the very top of the front panel. You do not have to remove the wires, just set the front panel to the side. Blower wheel is at the lower left. The old wheel most likely no longer has a D shaped hole to match the motor shaft, and spins freely. Remove cover. Replace the wheel part number Y303836 for a LDG7304AAE which is held on the shaft with a spring type clamp. Reassemble. Not really very hard to do. On a difficulty scale or 1 - 10, I'd rate it a 3.

SOURCE: dryer makes alot of noise when drying clothes.

First you will have to locate the two screws inside the dryer. Open the door and look up inside the trim around the opening of the dryer. Take them out then the top of the dryer will come right out. Look at the very from of the dryer. There should be 4 small "slides" attached to a trim piece. If there are any missing that is probably your problem. I just went through this problem. The pieces each are no longer than an 2" each but cost almost 8.00 a piece. They are easy to replace though. You might also have to replace the whole trim piece as I did because it was completely worn out. Very easy to replace.

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.

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
