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.

Loud grinding noises and black streaks on clothes


Your drum rollers may be going bad (grinding noise) which will sometimes cause the drum to drop slightly, creating a gap where the clothes get caught as the drum rotates. (black streaks)

My Maytag dryer model # LSG7804AAE is making a lot of noise when drying. It is squeaking and if I turn the tumbler by hand it seems very stiff and feels like it is rubbing against something. Thankyou.

Squeaking Noise coming from Dryer


Could be the roller next to the heating element. Heat tends to cause more wear in it. Use some HVAC oil to lube those noisy rollers. 6b5c930.jpg

The blower wheel may be stripped out or broken.

Maytag gas Dryer is Noisy


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Washer model PAVT244AWW agitation noise


Sounds like the motor is going bad. It will only get louder before it finally stops. There is a device that assists the agitation motion that may be bad or is going bad.
