Your drum seals may need replacing.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove 2 screws under the lint filter flap.
Raise the hood by prying under the front top corner.
remove 2 screws from the top right and left front inside corners.
Remove the door panel by lifting up.
unplug the door switch wires.
remove the belt from the motor pulley.
remove the drum
also check the drum rollers attached to the inside rear cabinet.

I have a Maytag Heavy Duty Quiet Series 200 Dryer, and when I turn the dryer on is makes a horrible screeching sound. Like metal grinding against metal. What do I do?


That's easy, first of all you must have the Dryer on flat floor I mean verticly right. And try not to put too many clothes to get dried.

How do you turn off the dryer signal on kenmore 70 series dryer


On a 70 series dryer, the knob on the far right of the panel controls the signal. You can turn it left or right to set the signal to "On" or "Off."

If you've set it to Off and the signal still comes on, that switch that sits behind the knob is bad. It's the same switch that controls when the dryer starts. You can either try to repair it (by bending the contacts back into their original alignment) or replace it. A new switch is less than $10, and you can get one many places online, including from PartSelect.com:

63942 Dryer: how do you turn off the dryer signal on kenmore 70...


Hi, you can turn the signal off by using the start button on the dryer (located on the right side of the panel under the words "Push to start dryer"). Turn the knob to the left to turn the signal off, or to the right to turn it on. Each side should be labeled, but the lettering may have worn off over time.

If you've turned the knob to the left and it still signals at the end of a cycle, the switch that controls the signal may be broken.

Kenmore 70 series dryer shuts off and won't restart


IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE MOTOR IS OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING ITSELF OFF. THAT IS ABOUT THE ONLY THING ON THE DRYER THAT WOULD SHUT IT OFF AND NOT ALLOW IT TO START AGAIN RIGHT AWAY, BUT LET IT START AFTER A WHILE. MAKE SURE THE MOTOR TURNS FREELY. IT SHOULD NOT DRAG OR HUMM WHEN TRYING TO START.

Sounds like the push to start switch has gone bad. Not to expensive to fix, and pretty easy to do as well. You can remove the rear of the console, remove the push to start switch (lift the tab, then turn to unlock) and replace. Be sure to mark your wires so they go back in the right order. Jim
