Question about Maytag Dryers
It makes a loud noise when dryer clothes
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.

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.
