Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
My maytag pye2300ay suddenly developed a loud grinding noise as the tumbler rotates. it seems to be coming from underneath the tumbler. hen the dryer is of, i can rotate the tumbler by hand ithout the noise. Baffles appear to be secure. thanks.
One of the retaining rings on the motor clamp/drum bearing assembly had probably broken, the machine must be taken apart to access to the motor/bearing assembly and fix the part.
The job should be done by a technician.
Using the machine in this condition can cause more damage to motor/ drum bearings.
Here is the diagram.
here you can buy the parts.
